Here and there I read of people who set their lens to a small aperture while testing their sensor cleanness, supposedly to get the best image of dust speckles. However, the image of the on-sensor dust ...
I recently went to Silverstone to watch the F1 qualifying and took my DSLR camera with me. Throughout the day, I switched lenses a few times, but each time was very conscious that there was a lot of ...
I seem to have to dust-like speck on my Sony Cybershot S950's lens, but it appears randomly every few pictures. Could something be going bad internally?
Canon states that the 7D is weather resistant and built to resist water and dust. There is even a blog which shows a EOS 7D covered in snow, during a field trip. But reading trough the comments of ...

I borrowed a Coolscan V ED (LS-50 ED) scanner and scanned some old negatives as .NEF files. However, I didn't turn on all the Scan Image Enhancer / Digital ICE features, so a lot of them have quite a ...
I have seen this in my D700 menu and just saw it again on Nikon's tech sheet for the new D4. Is this the same tech that Minolta is using to clean their sensor of dust or is it something else? How does ...
