Grot on my new D800 sensor - advice please!
Mar 31, 2012

After getting the camera yesterday, the sun came out today. At f7.1, there was a dust bunny, so time to investigate... One f18 shot later. Ugh!

Try the menu option "clean sensor". No change.

Get the Rocket Air blower. Mirror up, look at the sensor. There's a bright white pin prick at the top of the middle of the sensor (which I assume causes the bright white spot at the middle bottom of the picture). Blow off the sensor.

No change.

Before I break out the Eclipse fluid - what would you do?

Thanks,

Sophie
