    I recently noticed a floater in my pics. I have a nikon d40. It appears with both of my lenses. I tried cleaning the inside of the camera but they still appear. Any ideas?

    Oh man... I'm still laughing...

    OK ... lol ... it's probably sensor dust. Your sensor needs to be cleaned. There are TONS of threads about that here and ... google is your friend. Don't try to do it yourself if you don't fully understand the directions (it's not really that hard).

    Don't do it with Windex and a paper towel...

    dust spec

    try cleaning again. if that doesn't help and it's really annoying, send it in for a cleaning or take it to a local shop
