I've taken several pictures at the zoo today and for some reason there is a white spot that appears in every single one of them... I even used different lenses so it must be the camera... Is this the sensor? How can I fix this? Thanks.

Hot pixel, maybe?
Do that "manual cleaning" trick so the camera will map it and you won't have to worry about it anymore ;)

Oh.. by Manual Cleaning trick I mean:

- Take the lens out of your camera and put the cap on the camera directly
- Put a fully charged batter on it
- Go to the menu and activate the Manual Cleaning thing and your mirror will flip up
- Leave it like that for a few minutes
- Turn it off and on again.


Photography is about GEAR and not talent or practice. Practice won't make you a better photographer. Expensive equipment will. =D

Now that the pics have gone, this thread is totally useless to anyone else.
Why to people do this.
It's so inconsiderate to anyone seeking help with the same problem.

Actually, even with the pics gone I found it to be a very useful and informative thread that taught me something new...

That maybe so, however, without Chronos adding his pics just prior to your post, how would you have known what the white spots would have been to look for and what you have been able to compare?
How do you know that the white spots in Chronos pics are anything like the original pics posted in this thread - you don't.
On that basis the original post in this thread is meaningless.

Of course... we could just base the information on my pictures since it also has a white spot that was cured with the same solution.
So if you do have the problem that my pics show then Alex_Venom's method works for that! :D

...Maybe Arch.cm will be able to clarify that it was the same type of white spot on my pics as on his. :)

I was wondering about this, as i once was pixle peeping on the camera. I thought that there were definite dead parts of the sensor, but i'm glad there is a seemingly easy fix for it.

definitely informative
