    That looks like dust on your sensor. The Canon has a sensor cleaning feature. Try running it and blowing out the dust with an air bulb or canned air. Be careful if you use canned air though, some of those come out with a lot of force.

    Yes, dust.

    The last picture looks almost like it has a fingerprint on it though. You haven't been touching the sensor, have you? :lol:

    Could be on the front of the lens, but I'm not really sure if that would show in the picture. Maybe a fingerprint on the rear element?

    Just clone it out in Photoshop. A "spot" like that is nothing to worry about.

    Just lock up the mirror, and blow hard into your camera while its upside down. Dust gets in any NUMBER of ways; even from the simple act of changing a lens will give dust enough time to slide in and do its dirty work.

    I wouldn't recommend blowing into your camera as a regular course of action, little specks of spit on your sensor aren't exactly a good thing. Buying a rocket blower isn't a major investment.

    Given the wink at the end, I'm pretty sure he's joking.
