Hi guys, need some advise. I found the dark spot on my photos recently (exact same spot on every shot). I checked the lenses and no dust was found. I follow the procedure in the manaul to open the filter and found a dark spot object on my CCD. :bigeyes: the manul say I can try using a blower.

Question is, where can I get that blower? And how much will it cost? If I just walked into the camera shop and tell them I wan to buy the blower will they understand? :confused:

Wow.. the manual sure makes it sound easy. Better becareful. Once there a scratch on the CCD... well.. time to act blur :dunno: and claim the warranty

Hi hstn_asia, a good blower will cost about $10~$15 depending on the brand.
If you go Cathay Photo or TCW, they will defintely understand.

just a question. After blowing.. where does the dust go? I'm sure some will come OUT of the camera but a lot more will go further in? But most importantly it's just OFF the CCD?

if u do not know how to, better send it to nikon singapore for them to clean your ccd. it's free if your cam is under warranty
