Re: Dust and oil is forever?

Sorry, I don't understand what you're asking. Did you have your shutter replaced and your asking if this spot is acceptable?

Re: Dust and oil is forever?

Did you send it in for a sensor cleaning and they couldn't see anything to clean?  I can sure see it!!!

If you plan to stay in this universe, you must accept dust. Most, if not everything, is buildt upon it...

Have you tried a blower? Looks like a simple dust "spot" to me...

Using a DSLR, you may just as well learn to clean your sensor yourself. It's really not that big a deal...

He appears to be ignorant of Nikon's new policy

He last posted in the forum 4 months ago. Apparently he is ignorant of Nikon's new shutter replacement policy for the D600.

Looks like dust to my eye

Easily removed with a small brush like the Arctic bufferfly.

What I see here is way way below the norm for a D600. The most obvious one is nothing and could even be something moving in the image itself. There are about a dozen or so "real" spots in various places in the blue sky and their quantity is rather low.

How many shutter actuations do you have on this camera?

lera,

It would really help to know what Nikon did to your camera. With six service trips, did they replace the shutter or not? As others have said, the dozen or so dust specks on your sensor are not out of the ordinary for a full frame sensor and they are NOT all in the upper-left of your test-shot . So assuming they replaced the shutter, what you have there is nothing to be alarmed about. I'm sure many people have similar results sending their cameras to Nikon for cleaning.

Might be time to learn how to clean your sensor, it's not a big deal by any means. There are plenty of tutorials and videos out there.

Stan,

I don't think replace the shutter. Only "Sensor cleaning and prevention" and replace other components. Now, for these spots, "not confirm" and not cleaning.

I'm having a little trouble understanding what you just said. Nikon said "not confirm", meaning what? And you said "not cleaning", right? Quite possibly if you send it back one more time they WILL replace the shutter, that is if they haven't done so already.

But, again, the amount of dust you have is not terrible and can be dealt with easily. And it does NOT look like lubricant to me.
