Hey Everyone;

First post here - I'm jumping into the world of photography with a second hand buy (can't afford new) and I've found nearby what seems to be a decent deal with a few caveats.

The camera is a Sony A6000 + two lenses for $799 AUD however sell has disclosed the sensor is a little dirty and needs cleaning.

So I will post a photo or two (as seller was honest enough to put it in the ad), and also ask; is this a bad sign? is it mold or just dust? do i avoid or just carefully clean?

Thanks in advance for any replies - photos below:

The sensor needs professional cleaning, not a task for a newcomer or even a veteran.  Figure this cost into the total cost of purchase.
