Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

Spots on image

\015 A series of circles shows up on images of blue sky. They are always in the same spot. They show up using 28-135 zoom lens and the 10-22 zoom, but not with 50 1.4 lens.\015

Answers :

Hi,

The 28-135 zoom lens has at some point had moisture inside it. These spots that you can see are dried water marks.

You have to take the lens apart and clean the lens with a class cloth.

Alternatively you can take the lens to a specialist service center to be professionally cleaned.



Regards.

I've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's

GDay, I have a black spot in my image. I previously dropped the camera in the sand. Sand had blocked up the opening shutter. I have since tried to remove the sand in the opening mechanism. Any ideas about the black spot? And how to remove it. Many thanks

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,


You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera
