Looks like a wonderful place. (I think you got some salt spray on your sensor)

Palmina Moore on January 1, 2008

Is that the marks you can see when you look at it full size. What do I do? Do I take it to someone to clean the sensors?

Hi, Palmina. Yes, it's a bit of dust on the sensor. The best choice is to take it to a reputable photo shop. Your camera may have a sensor-cleaner function, but I don't think so.

Palmina Moore on January 1, 2008

Thanks George I'll check the manual. If not, I'll take it and get it sorted.

Palmina, I googled sensor cleaning and found www.bobatkins.com that gave some thoughts. Your camera is like the rebel XT in Canada and I don't think it has sensor cleaning capability built in. I would take it in (or take out the dust in Photoshop with the band-aid tool and not worry about the dust). If you're not selling them, it's not the end of the world (everyone has some dust in their lives!).

Thanks for the advice George I don't know the first thing about Photoshop, I'm one of those technically challenged people from another century! I can't even understand the tutorials! I will take it in and have it cleaned.

Peninsula Camera (Frankston),is good IMHO Palmina,for sensor cleaning,Cheers Craig :)

Palmina Moore on January 2, 2008

Thanks Craig that's the place I used go to. I used to work there for a short while a few years ago. All my wages went into equipment - I was better off not working!

I think it's changed hands now. I went in and bought Canon, lenses and Manfrotto but the camera died a week later. It was away 6 weeks which I thought was excessive for a week old camera, but I'll give them another go and see what happens. It's easier than going into the city.

I would think they could nearly do it while you wait,do you have a camera blower?, it may remove some of it,once the mirror is locked up to show the sensor,Craig.

Palmina Moore on January 2, 2008

I have a blower but I'll leave it to the experts I think. I'd be too frightened the camera ends up with ten ton of dog hair in it. LOL

This is so beautiful that it almost doesn't even look real! My goodness, how I'd love to be here right now! Wonderful, beautiful shot!

I'm not brave enough to surf (or even go in the water above my knees) but it did look very cool that day!

Hi Gerry It was nice and warm, too warm for a Norhtern English girl like me!.

I'll check out your shot in a second. Thanks for the visit.

Hi again Gerry Yes I'd seen that shot and commented on it a while ago. It's spooky isn't it? It just looks like Australia.
