Mysterious dots on photos
Sep 26, 2012

I've been having trouble with some D7000 images. On the right hand side [the top if in portrait mode] a distinctive pattern of small dots appears in an identical location and pattern. I have a feeling that this issue is resident on many of my shots, but most have some content in that part of the frame that obscures the pattern. It mainly shows up in light colored solid content like a sky.

I switched lenses on the theory that the lens wasn't clean, but the identical pattern persists. Two examples are attached here, one shot with an 18-105, the other with a 10-20. Look carefully at the top of each shot. I've messed with the exposure to make the dots clearer. Any ideas?
