    It's more than dust. It needs a physical cleaning.

    Whatever you do.. DO NOT TOUCH THE CCD SENSOR. There is a menu to clean the sensor in the setup. The camera will buzz then turn off. With the lens off your looking at the raw unprotected CCD. Use a air bulb, hold the camera facing down and blow air onto the sensor. Don't do it real hard, but several times. If that doesn't remove the dust then you'll have to send it to sony to have it cleaned. The CCD is VERY easily damaged. Do the above at your own risk.

not a easy fix. when it is not connecting it defaults to the widest aperture so it is letting in as much light a possible. you could try speeding up your shutter speed and see if your start seeing a image

Is the Sony Cybershot DSC H3 an SLR camera? How does one distinguish an SLR from another camera? Thanks. Bill

No, it is not a SLR or DSLR camera. SLR cameras have a mirror in them, where as point-and-shoot class cameras do not. With an SLR the mirror allows you to look through the lens, so that you are actually seeing through the lens when looking in the viewfinder. With a point and shoot, even a superzoom like the H3, the viewfinder is actually a small LCD, showing you a digital *image* of what the sensor sees.

Another primary feature is that SLR and DSLRs have removable lenses. They also are typically faster, and have better lower light performance. On the downside they are typically more expensive, larger and heavier.

All DSLRs will be noted as such. In Sony's case, their DSLR line is named "Alpha".

Spot on images

Sorry, I read this as being for a Nikon N70 35mm SLR, but now see that it's a Canon EOS 350d.

In that case, you simply have a dirty image sensor. Either use a DIY sensor cleaning kit on the sensor (put the camera body into "sensor cleaning mode" to expose the sensor), or get a professional cleaning done. Professional is best for a one off, but as the problem will re-occur then there's no substitute for the experience you'll gain by doing it yourself. Until you get good at sensor cleaning, just clone out the artefacts using your preferred image editing software.

White spots on images

Does the camer have a removable lens. Is it an SLR camera. If so, there probably is microscopic dust on your sensor, or you have some dead pixels on your sensor. If you can get to the sensor, you can easily clean it with a cleaning kit. The most effective way of cleaning is to blow it off with clean air. Be gentle. On an SLR it is necessary to lock the mirror up. Your instruction book will explain how to do that. For more suggestions, Google cleaning my camera sensor and you will get a lot of suggestions. :-)
