It's probably something on the sensor. Try removing it with compressed air.

I got new Sigma 18-200 DC II lens, with Canon EOS 5D Mark II it has black lens frame is visible through viewfinder or on the photo. Does it mean this lens is not compatible with 5DmrkII?


The EOS 50d Mark II is what's known as a "full-frame" camera. Its image sensor is the same size as a frame of 35mm film. The Sigma DC lens is intended for cameras with smaller sensors. The lens is compatible in that it will work with the camera to take pictures, but the pictures are cropped due to the smaller imaging area of the lens.

In order to use the full image sensor area you need to use full-frame lenses. In the case of Sigma, this means lenses without the DC designation.

When i look through the view finder i see a black dot. What is that from?


This camera has an electronic viewfinder. It allows the image captured by the lens projected electronically onto a miniature display. It also allows you to see real time what ever adjustment you make on the camera(same w/ the lcd screen). That black dot that you're seeing could be dirt or a dead pixel. If it's a dead pixel it can't be removed.

My s8000 has got a problem with it.there is no scratch visible. but still a black dot mark is appearing on the fotos.when the zoom is increased,the size of the dot mark decreases. i've cleaned the lens...


This is not something that you can clean from the outside. It is probably on an inside element of the lens, close to the CCD. I would send it back under guarantee, along with some prints of photos showing the mark.

There is black dot in left upper corner, every time i take picture of sky dot is there, it's not a lens cause i try different one, same result, any idea why?


Common problem, easy solution. It is dust on the chip.
At first try to blow the spot away on the image chip. Don't use your mouth or air, but use the airblaster.
And there are special swap stick which can help. Go to a photodealer, they will have the swaps. If you don't trust yourself, it's on the image chip, let the shop do it.

Canon power shot sd1000 black dot on lens


If by saying the upper right corner of the lens you really mean that there is a dark spot on each image AND the rear display, there may be dirt or dust on the lens itself. Clean the lens with an optical quality cleaner. Do not use paper towels and Windex or the like - as paper towels can scratch the lens.

It is also possible that the dark spot is a "stuck pixel" on the image sensor inside the camera. There is no way to repair a stuck pixel outside of replacing the sensor. Any dark spot (regardless of source) can be edited out by using image editing software. This will allow you to to make the dark spot less noticeable - or practically invisible.

If the dark spot is on the rear display only, it can also be a result of a "stuck pixel" on the display itself. This should not show up an images, but only on the display. There is little that can be done outside of replacing the entire rear screen.

There are other things that can cause these problems, but those listed above are the most common.

I hope this was Very Helpful and good luck!

Black dot on my screen about the size of an unsharpened pencil's point. My camera is Olympus 790. The dot id on the pictures when printed and the screen.


The solution you can try is to run a function of the camera called Pixel Mapping to see if this removes the dot as it will redistribute the pixels of the camera on the LCD screen. To access this function - have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - right arrow to setup and press Ok - down arrow to pixel mapping and right arrow over to highlight start and press ok. The camera will try to repair itself. If after running this the dot is still there then you may need to send the camera to Olympus for service as the image processing chip may need to be replaced. http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Bottom 3/4 of photos are black


Check out this website http://www.lotek.nu/misc/EOS_300D_sub-mirror_repair/

I had the same problem. You can check to make for sure by removing your lens, and carefully lifting your mirror. Does the sub mirror underneath flatten against the other one when you lift it? That's probably what is in the way creating your 3/4 "black" picture. I just repaired mine as in this website, and the mirror moves great now! Of course, I'm used to taking apart laptops and such. If you have a warranty yet, contact Canon. It is a defective issue on there part.

How do I setup the camera to save pics above 180 dpi resolution?


Select image>image size, make sure that the 'resample image' box is unticked and change the resolution to 300 dpi. This will automatically change the image size.
