Oil spots on sensor 5d

Have these orbs showing up after using eclipse2 solution... inclined to think that it must be some of that factory lubricant i read about... am new to cleaning the sensor...was thinking of trying Smear Away solution...images appear as under exposed areas in shadows and darker areas in sky shot at f22...suicide is only slightly considered at this time...go ahead and push me over the edge...

Are you sure what's on the sensor isn't dust and not oil? Cleaning a sensor is a delicate operation though I've done it in the field where I had no options to save a shoot. If there is actual debris on the sensor and it cannot be CAREFULLY removed with a LIGHT, INDIRECT burst of air or a very clean, fine lens brush then I'd send it in to have it professionally clean. Canon has a fast turnaround time and pretty reasonable.

SOURCE: spots on images

spot is dust on the sensor. unfortunately, you will have to clean your sensor by yourself (it cost 30$ in a shop) There a fonction in the menu that up the mirror so you can access the sensor. very carefull. the pixel are so small that you can not see the dust but they are there!. caution, you need to put your body on a pod, have a good light to see what you make and some adapted items to clean the sensor. If not neede, avoid liquids. good luck and don't panic.

SOURCE: Under exposed pictures when using studio lighting with 5D

A black shadow at the bottom of the image is usually the result of using a shutter speed that is beyond the max flash sync speed of your camera. The max sync speed of the 5D and 20D is 1/200th. In a studio setting with wireless triggers there can be additional latency. Try using a shutter speed of 1/125th and see if that clears it up. You may be able to push it a little higher as pocket wizards are very good wireless triggers but don't use a shutter speed above 1/200th.

There is a dark spot that is showing up on all my pictures and it's getting larger


To make sure this spot is where I think it is, on the sensor, You should put the camera in manual, A priority and whose the highest value. Shoot in bright light a complete white paper.
Then evaluate the picture on the monitor. If the spot is clearly viable the spot is on the sensor. With a fixed lens on your powershot, you can't repair or correct yourself. You should contact Canon. Don't tell Canon, you were in a moist environment. Perhaps a mould is growing on the sensor.

Old pictures show up fine but new pictures show up very darkkk


two reasons for this are possible:
1) you changed the exposure compensation by mistake to minus something... - see below - change it again to +- zero:

2) you should have the ISO settings to auto:

Spots on the display screen


Still not clear, what you mean. But take care wham cleaning a lens. Never use a fluid like alcohol. Use a special lens pen or the soft brush on the other side of a lens pen, when you think the lens is dirty. Spots, or disk, also can appear when light is entering the lens from an angle. Even the expensive Fuji X10, had orbs or disks on the pictures in certain situations. Like dark with one or a few sharp lights close bye. Try the camera in different situations, to make sure the phenomena is in the camera or just a strange rare occasion.
When it is caused by a defect in the camera, it should show on every picture.

What are lenses that are compatible with the canon eos 5d mark ii


You can use Canon EF lenses. Be careful not to use EF-S lenses, as they cast a smaller image circle for cropped-sensor cameras, not big enough for full-frame cameras.There are other third-party manufacturers that make lenses with Canon EF mounts, such as Sigma and Tamron. Each manufacturer has their own designation for cropped-sensor lenses, so you'll have to check the specifications for each of them.

Spot that shows up in the same spot on all my pictures


It can be a piece of sticky dust or dirt on sensor surface which can't be removed with a blower or canned air. You can try to remove it by yourself with special cleaning swab and cleaning liquid. But this process requires some experience, so the safer way is to bring camera to service center where sensor can be cleaned fast and risk free.

Dust Orbs


The bright, round spots appear to be flare caused by internal reflections of the lights in the lens. Dust on the sensor blocks light, and hence appears dark.
