Having problems with your Canon EOS 30D Body Only Digital Camera ?

Spots in the same place

\015 My photos in certain tyes of light consistently have spots in the same place no matter which lense. I sent it to Canon New Jersey for cleaning but they did not resolve the problem. They gave me an answer that no one who read it could understand. They seem to apper in photos of low light days or grey days but sometimes on sunny days as well. Do you know what this could be?\015\012Thanks,\015\012Ron\015

My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything. Purchased camera 11/07.

There's some dust spots in my pictures with my Nikon D80. I have sent it for sensor cleaning at Nikon centre but seems that the spots cannot be removed as the technician says it's hidden underneath/behind the sensor.
