Lately I've noticed a spot in my photos. I think you'lll be able to see it here:



It's doesn't stick out a lot, but I'm wondering what is causing it. I'm using a Canon SX100 and it's been used a lot the last couple of years. Is it bad sensors? Or is it a natural phenomenom of light?

thanx

Looks like a dust speck, either in/on the lens of maybe on the sensor.

Sensor dust. Doesn't look like you can clean it since you cannot get to the sensor on the SX100.

thanks nephler, fuzz

It's not usually noticable. But going over previous photos I can see it in some images. Maybe it's time to start looking for a new camera.

Sounds like as good an excuse as any to start shopping!

Yeah that is dust on the sensor. Its definitely dust on the sensor if its on the same spot but only becomes visible when using the zoom at certain points.

Lots of great deals out there for a new camera. Good luck!

I had the same thing and only could see it in sky photos, turned out to be a dirty lens.

Probably sensor dust, if you can't clean it, it ain't exactly hard to edit them out, most of the time.
