Sensor spots? How many??
Jul 27, 2012

Hi All,

I have read a couple of posts regarding sensor cleaning for spots in photos and videos on the Nex-5n. Apparently, spots would show up easily at F22. Here is my version of the test.

As you can clearly see, there are MANY dust spots at F22 (Scaring amount...). After checking more than one time the lens, and the sensor, I know for sure the spots are caused by dust debry (dust) on the sensor.

The in-body sensor clean procedure from the NEX-5n is absolutely useless with my issue.

Other than sending the camera to a pro to get it cleaned, or trying to clean it myself, do you have any other advice? Is the amount of spots normal? Should the in-body auto-clean normaly get rid of this dust?

I only have one lens. So since I got the camera, I must have opened it 3 times (in 6 months).
