Yesterday i noticed some dots on my images when uploaded to my pc. As i viewed images of f22 i noticed a few more. I circled the dots in paint and as the image was so bi,g i noticed a few more. The camera was given to me still sealed in the box as a going away present for my travels. I've had it 8 weeks and managed to see dots already i have never even taken the lens off the camera and always carried it in a lowepro bag.

Sending off the camera is not an option as i am already away. What am i supposed to do? I also noticed a peice of focused dust as i was taking pictures of the sky! you can not see the dust on this picture nor any other picture i have taken. Ironically i think the dust got there when cleaning it to see if the dark spots were dirt

Here is a picture:


Thanks in advance

simply remove the lens, with your wife's or mom's vacuum cleaner, clean it...do not get it very close to the sensor,,,it easily removes dust...i very often use this method and works great all the time...also vacuum the lens bottom side too...dust is the last thing you have to be worrried about

Are you serious?! A vacuum cleaner?

Maybe it does work to a certain degree, but I would really recommend an air blower for a few bucks instead.
