Shot at f/36. These spots show up no matter what lens I'm using. Sensor gunk or dead pixels? I've used the rocket blower on the sensor, but it hasn't helped. Next step is getting the copperhill cleaner if it's sensor gunk.

I know everybody always asks this question...thank you for any help.

Dust on your sensor, IMHO. Doesn't look anywhere as bad as mine did... I got the Copperhill Kit and cleaned the sensor and found it not to be all that traumatic an experience... However, if you're really anal retentive, you'll keep trying and trying to get every last speck and at some point you'll realize you have to accept a small amount of sensor dust as "a part of life".

This man speaks the truth.
We have to, at some point, face the inevitable and clean.

Haha ...

the only thing I can see is the dirt on my laptop screen :lol:
Really, if this is all that shows up at f/36, you don't have much of a problem IMO.

Mine looks a lot worse at f/4.0 :rolleyes:

Best regards,
Andy

OK, sensor gunk it is. Copperhill thingy is on order. It shows up way before f/36 by the way.

Sorry, didn't realize there was a sticky thread on this (it's a new sticky thread) - mods go ahead and delete this thread if you want to...

And yeah, I live with dust everywhere else in my life, I can surely accept a bit on the sensor...I don't need perfection. ;)

Judyg...1 sensor gunk it is then. If it's big enough it will show up well before f/36. Also auto levels etc will enhance it.

2 I've been around a while and to my shame I haven't read every sticky.

3 The dust in your post is small but some people will not live with even that small amount.

4 I would not clean the sensor with that amount of dust... but that's me
