Hello Guys,


Can some one help me with the issue that i'm facing with my camera, it captures a dot on the right hand side of the picture i click, i have cleaned the lense, and also camera. But, it did not work. Uploaded a sample pic for reference, if anyone can suggest something here, would be of great help. :)

Hi, this has nothing to do with the lens but is dirt on your sensor.

Lots of dirt ;)


You can clean the sensor by yourself but please be careful.

If you are not sure contact a professional service, often offered by dealers or camera manufacturers.

If you get spots like these, it's usually dust or other particles on the sensor and/or rear element of the lens.

Avoid physical contact with optical surfaces if you can. Start by getting a dust blower and try to blow away the offending particles. Unless the dirt was wet when it got stuck, it's only held there by static electricity and should come off.

As soon as you clean by touch you'll cause scratches and streaks that may aggravate the problem. Worst case, IQ will be permanently affected.

Some cameras have a cleaning option in the menu that vibrates the sensor to dislodge dust particles. If your camera has that capability then remove the lens, point the camera downward and activate that vibration, with a bit of luck it may fix it.
