    Default Need help confirming if it is dust, and if cleaning is advisable.

    Hi guys,



    I wanted to ask if you could help me to confirm (or whether if is most likely) if those are dust that show up as dots in the highlighted boxes, and if the condition is severe and i need to send my camera gears for cleaning (i plan to do so, as i feel too incompetent to do so myself).

    Cheers!

    Please learn how to post from Flickr.

    And yes, that is dust, I suggest you learn how to DIY clean, it's in your camera manual. Otherwise your camera will be in the service center more than in your hands.

    Yes those are dust. But are you bothered by them. If yes, then, clean the sensor. If no, leave it.

    Like what Rashkae had said, learn to clean it yourself, it really isn't rocket science. All you need is a good blower to blow the dust off. If cannot, there is sensor swab that you can purchase from a couple of shops in Singapore.

    But before you do anything, please read your manual first... and 1 hint (don't ever touch your sensor with your hand, cloth or anything).
