Up to now I have not had a "dust" problem......but Someone pointed out to me that this picture shows some dust spots. I locked-up my mirror and looked at the sensor and could not see anything on it. I was not using a magnifier, just my eyes (with glassses on). For those of you who have been there, done that, is this "normal" that the dust is not "visible" to the naked eye? (I accept that all "naked eyes" are not the same - especially over the age of 30) I did a Dust Reference Shot, have any of you found that to work okay for general purposes? I used NC with the Dust-Reference image and it did "remove" all but one spot, wich I removed with PP on my JPG copy. I have been "putting off" getting any sensor cleaning apparatus....and if I can find a local shop that will clean the sensor for me, I'll go that route before doing it myself - maybe a quick shot of Gun-Scrubber will do it.... :lol: I just called a local shop - they will clean the sensor for $30.
