This will give you the idea how to clean the lens and have lens cover which is available in market to protect it from dust
Hi, researching forums it appears that this is a fairly comon problem, most likley the dust is on the sensor, this can get in when lenses are changed etc. If you are not confident about cleaning the sensor I recomend you take it to a specialist repair shop. Its a fairly easy process and your manual should suggest how its done. You can use a blower, or compressed air cleaner ( only use the correct product and keep the can upright) or use Visible Dust sensor swabs for stuborn particles. Have a look here.

Suddenly the pictures I take with my Lumix DMC-ZS3 have dark, shadowy, relatively circular spots on them. The spots are more noticeable when I zoom in. The spots are always in the same places on my images. This is my favorite camera of all time and I very distressed over this issue. I suspect dust has collected somewhere inside the lens where I can not get at it. I have gently cleaned the outside surface of the lens and have blown it off with compressed air but the problem persists, What c

There is some black unremovable dots (not visible on sensor sirface). Is IMAGE DUST OFF REFERENCE DATA helpful to remove that black dust like dot from image? how can I use that feture?

Dust problem I have the *Ist D and dust was a significant problem the first month I had it. I think it came from the factory packed with dust. After the first month, I got in the habit of frequently blowing it out and raising the mirror to blow only when there's visible dust on the images. I've had to do that perhaps four times in eight months. I don't think dust is as big a problem as some seem to.

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. I am not sure how true it is or the technician is just plain lazy because I had to tell him where the spots were 3 times before he got the remove most of them. The spots are not visible if I don't scrutinise the pictures though but it sure is irritating knowing there are 1 more spec
I think the problem is with the technician. I suggest you talk to the manager and ask for another technician to help you with this problem. I do not recommend trying to clean the sensor yourself as you may cause more harm than good. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
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
