If lens was cleaned properly, you may have dirt on sensor.

Dirty marks on samsung pictures not the view finder ES73


You need to realize that the screen has 1 million pixels max, while the camera sensor has 12 million pixels. On the LCD you can barely tell whether something is in focus, right?

So if there is dirt or a smudge on the lens, or inside the camera on the sensor itself, you'll be much more likely to see it when you look at the final picture on the monitor.

Clean lens with a microfibre cleaning cloth (similar to eyeglasses or monitor glass) and see if that helped. Cleaning the sensor is probably a job for a camera repair shop. Good luck!

When i open up the camera app. i see black specs all over the screen, it looks like dirt in there or something. Is there a way to clean it?


Three possibilities..
1. Dirt on the outside of the lens. Clean it with a lens cloth.
2. Something got inside the lens somehow. Do not take it apart yourself. Have a proffesional clean it.
3. The LCD screen is bad.

I just bought the canon rebel xs and every picture that I take has a black spot "burned" into the picture. Any suggestions as to what I should do? Or should I just return the camera?


Sounds as if there is a fleck of dirt on the rear lens element. While in the house (to minimize dust and dirt) remove the lens and look at the rear of the lens see if there is dirt there. If so clean it gently with a soft lens cloth not a facial tissue. Reinstall the lens, if the dirt is still in the same spot return the camera because I suspect the dirt is on the sensor and will need to be cleaned.

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.

Hi, I have a canon eos rebel xs. the mirror is kind a dirty, can it be cleaned by me or need to have it cleaned at canon service centers?s I also have a Tamron Telephoto lens, when I do a full zoom in...


This is a digital camera and I suspect it's not the mirror that's showing dirt it's the sensor. If you are seeing small bits of dirt on your pictures then it's dirt on the sensor. I would suggest having it cleaned at a camera store or repair facility if you are not comfortable with doing it yourself. Cleaned improperly can damage the sensor and renter the camera pretty well useless. The dirt inside the Tamron lens I would also suggest cleaning and if you are getting an error message you may as well send the camera in for a complete cleaning. There are kits on the marked to clean the sensors but again if you are not confident that you can do this then sent it to people that can and do it on a regular bases.

Pentax SMC D 16-45 Lens How to clean inside? Pictures are showing spots and all the outside lens have been cleaned along with the inside of the camera itself. Can not see the spots when taking pics only...


Your lens would need to be absolutely filthy with enormous dirt specks to cause the fault you describe. Dust, fingerprints, and regular minor debris simply doesn't show in the final image. In any case, you cannot clean inside the lens without dismantling it and that is a job for experienced specialists only.

Your fault is a dirty image sensor. You can buy sensor cleaning kits, but if you're inexperienced with them or trying to clean the sensor in a dusty environment you'll just make matters worse. Many camera shops offer sensor cleaning while you wait at relatively low cost. The reason you don't see the dirt when taking the picture is either because you're looking through the optical viewfinder or because the LCD screen simply doesn't magnify the image enough to show the marks which are present in the image.

You can prevent the dirt from reoccurring by never leaving the camera with the lens throat open for more than strictly necessary, and by always trying to keep the open lens throat pointing slightly down when swapping lenses.

I hope that I've helped, please take a moment to rate my answer.

Picture come out with black dot inthe middle of the picture


If Alex's comment didn't resolve your problem, check for dust inside the camera body and on the part of the lens that goes into the camera body. The highlight indicator he speaks of will show on the LCD screen, but should not show up on your final picture once downloaded from the camera. Since the optics on that end of the lens are smaller, they are more susceptible to dust and dirt. If there is dirt or dust inside the camera body and you are not familiar with how to clean it, same yourself some headaches and take it to a qualified camera shop. You can seriously damage the interior optics of your camera by attempting to clean it the wrong way.

Dark circular spot on Ricoh R6 screen and images


There is a spec of dirt that made it inside the camera and has landed itself on your image sensor.

If you take a picture and the image has a spot on it, it could be the screen. If you transfer it to your computer and the spot is in the same spot, its something on the image sensor. You would have to send it out for cleaning, and a new camera would be cheaper.

Sony kf-60we610 washed picture


if everything including sony menu is unclear, yeah cleaning may help. dirt can get inside the engine too. look at a white screen, this is your answer (or a black in some cases). any dirt on mirror or lense will be uncolored distortions. colored distortions are inside the light engine.
