    piece of hair on the sensor or something, lock you mirror up and blow some air from an air bulb.

    Do a google search for cleaning the sensor of your specific camera. Ignore any response that says to use a can of compressed air. The air bulb he is talking about looks a lot like the little air thing they use for babies to suck their snot out...only you're blowing air with yours. There are also cleaning pads as well if you don't have success with the air bulb.

    thank you pal.
    I'll go with cleaning pads because it seems the easiest thing and as long as nothing happens to the camera and the lens I am alright because I was affraid that something worng is going on with the camera since I've just bought it 3 weeks ago.
    cheers and peace out

    As long as nothing happens to your camera, lens, and most importantly the sensor. Make sure you take great care when using pads, it doesn't take much to ruin a good sensor.

    What I am suggesting is that if used incorrectly, pads could possibly $@#* up your sensor. Read up on it. This looked promising.

    First question, before suggesting to lock up the mirror and clean the sensor, should have been what camera?

    So for the benefit of those who are more knowledgable than I on cameras to suggest what to do, but assume that everyone is using an extremely expensive dSLR, what camera?

    I would not use Cleaning pads for a sensor unless it was necessary! A piece of hair you can blow out with ease from a bulb blower if that does not work use the brush and genitally sweep it off then blow it out again. I have 14 pets in my house so Hair is a common problem 4 me. But I have never needed to do more than I just said above. Go run to the store if you don't have one a grab a bulb brush I even think they have it at wal-mart and wallgreens. I have had Slr's for many years and never had to touch the sensor other than what I have said. Link on what it looks like below

    A little something to be aware of, there is a filter over the sensor. It's almost impossible to damage the sensor itself unless you clean with hammer and chisel. The filter is fairly tough, so it does not scratch all that easily. Still, due caution is called for anytime you insert something into the mirror box.
