What I don't understand is that the second time I went to get my camera back, I asked him he he had tested this time. "I don't need to. I've got the equipment to see how clean the sensor is." I guess he meant a magnifying glass. But there was a photo on the camera (white screen) so he actually tested it. Why say he didn't? And why didn't he see those spots on the sensor the first time if he had the equipment necessary to see every detail? Especially knowing that he actually saw them with his bare eyes when I brought it back the second time.
For whatever reason, he thought that he could get away with doing a slapdash job ... that you were going to be easy to please. But he misread you badly. Now he's embarrassed and defensive and uncomfortable about being found out. He's trying to save face ... but even doing that rather badly (forgetting to delete his test image).
I take it from your user name that you are female (my apologies if I've got that wrong). I'm sorry to say that this might have something to do with it. Car mechanics in the UK, where I come from, are notorious for patronising female customers and for taking liberties with pricing and specification of work required. They have a built-in assumption that women cannot grasp technical matters and that they can take advantage of that. A male who actually knows nothing about how cars work will likely get more serious treatment. Your camera technician may have been an example of the same sort of thing. It means, if you are a woman, you have to be a little more vigilant, unfortunately.
Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.
