Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

Recently I have noticed a small spot appearing in the same place on my pictures. It is not lense related as it occurs with each lense. It is also out of foccus, any ideas?


Answers :

You have dust on the sensor which sits inside the camera body. It usually gets in and settles on the sensor when lenses are changed and the internals of the camera are exposed to the air.

\015\012You can try cleaning the sensor yourself, but it is advisable to have a professional do it if you haven't done it before or are not confident in doing it because it can result in even worse issues and more dust. You also need special dust cleaning tools and solutions for your camera.
The camera body possibly needs service / cleaning to take care of this. Look for a shop that deals with these to get this resolved. I'm not sure what the charge would be but it's obviously worth it since that's a very nice camera. Good luck with it.

I have a Sigma 18-200 3.5-6.3 lense and use it on a Canon xTi Rebel. The lense is a year old and have recently noticed that at the 18mm focal length that the f stop no longer opens up to 3.5 but only to f4. I have not dropped or jarred the lense. Also I have noticed that at the 200mm focal length the f stop opens up to 5.6 not the 6.3. Any advise would be appreciated. Jim Caldwell

Grainy Pictures Lately I have been looking at my images photographed at 1200X800 and seen they look quite grainy. I have no idea why they have all this grain, I have the sharpness at normal level and the quality set as FINE. The ISO is in auto mode also. Does anyone have any idea what it could be or how I can get better less grainy pictures.


With the iso set on auto mode it will change depending on the light and anything above iso 200 is very bad on this camera i know have the 717 and it does a lot better but if you can set the iso yourself and take it off auto allways use 100 or 200 for ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera
