Spot showing up in all videos and pics.

I just purchased my DVR 530 brand new. There is a black spot showing up in all my pictures and videos. I cleaned the lens and it doesn't affect the spot in any way. Is my new camera damaged?

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.

If the spot is in all foto's and in a video, it is most likely not the lens. Could be a dead pixel (some pixels). But almost certain a spec of dust or othes debris that entered the camera.
Because this camera came with a fixed zoom lens, there is no sensor cleaning option. And I can't find a posibility to make a dust retentie picture.
To check if the spot is on the sensor, put the camera in manual, set aperatur to the greatest figure (smallest opening) an make a picture of a white object. If you see the spot, you were spot on. When the camera is new, this could be a reason, to go to your dealer and ask a new camera. Take the dust retentie picture with you.

Black spot


Hi,

If the black spot is always on the same location then you have to clean your lens, if it changes location, bring it to the service center for firmware reload.

I hope this helps.

Polaroid camera 1739 has black spots on picture


you should be able to clean the exterior of the lens with a clean microfiber cloth or lens cleaning papers (available at even wal-mart). If the spots are in the inside of the lens body, you have to send this in to be cleaned as the camera will have to be disassembled to do it right.

Problem is not with Vista or the camera drivers. More likely it’s that the camera is set in “macro mode” which is used for taking photos of things real close. On the right side of the camera there is a slide switch, you want to be sure that it is in the up position (Normal).

If the switch is in the correct position, look if the lens is clean. Even if the LCD shows a good image a smudge on the lens will show up on the photo.

It might be caused by some dirt on your lens (either front or rear element) but is more likely to be dust on the cameras sensor.

There are a couple of sample images of what this looks like here and here.

Dust spots typically have a softish edge to them and affect more than 1 pixel. (if it is just the 1 pixel affected, which a very sharp edge, this could be a defective sensor).

Following the instructions in the manual for cleaning the sensor. Avoid touching the sensor (unless it is with a specialist sensor cleaning brush) and avoid cans of compressed air; use a hand-blower brush instead.

SPOTS on pictures taken by my Canon EOS Rebel XTi


Cleaning the lens and CMOS (Canon uses CMOS instead of CCD sensors) would be the first thing I would do. Before an expensive cleaning (usually at least $60) try getting a blower and blowing off the lens and sensor (find the sensor cleaning thing in the yellow section of the cameras menu, select it, the mirror will lock up, take off the lens, blow on the sensor with the blower)
For the lens, besides the blower, use a microfiber cloth on it.

If the problem persists, almost any camera store will clean cameras. Try Ritz cameras, here is a list of their stores in NY city.
