Those Darn Black Specks!

If you use a camera with interchangeable lenses, you get to enjoy a lot of features that owners of compacts don’t… but you also encounter a special problem: dust. Unlike compacts, DSLRs and mirrorless cameras aren’t airtight. Because of this, dust and impurities sometimes reach the lens. But don’t worry! Any camera repair shop out there can get the dust off your sensor, and as for dust spots in your photos, you can remove these in Zoner Photo Studio.

I’ve been taking pictures since 2004. When I was starting out, I photographed almost everything. Later my style solidified and I began photographing people almost exclusively. At the moment my main genres are fashion and advertising.

  1. Hi I am here now please give some help since I am a new one in zonera

  2. Not so true about compact cameras. I have (in addition to my Canon DSLR) a Panasonic Lumix. Dust is so prevalent, there are even Youtube videos on how to disassemble the camera to get the offending particles off. Of course, one needs 20/20 visions and a teeniest screwdriver known to man, to DIY. The other option is to pay a camera shop to do it – and that costs almost as much as the camera itself! I will stick to my DSLR and continue to clean the lens as often as necessary to get a great shot every time.
