This has been bugging me for the past month, and I can't figure out what it is.
I've cleaned the sensor countless times but yet it still appears (only when I use a high f stop)

Any help would be much appreciated

Dust and hair/fiber. Time to buy a proper cleaning kit consisting of a Rocket Blower, sensor brush and a wet cleaning system.

Dust, on either the sensor or the lens. If it shows up with all lenses then it's obviously the sensor.

I've tried cleaning it multiple times wither a silk cloth with no change.
I guess I'll buy a proper cleaning kit then.
Anyway other way I can do it without a cleaning kit?

Can you compare a few photos and see if each has the same layout of dust and lint or if the locations change around??
It's exactly the same. In fact I think it has gotten a lot worse over time. I first started to notice little specs like 5 months ago but didnt think anything of it until it finally became super noticeable.
It's also not my lens as it still does it when I swap.

You should not be cleaning your sensor with anything other then the proper size sensor Swabs and proper cleaning solution. Swabs come individually wrapped and are assembled In a Clean room from the manufacture.using cloths is not a good idea even silk cloths.

I suspect what you're seeing now is a piece of silk thread on the sensor

Even if it's assembled in a clean room, it automatically becomes contaminated once you open it so it's not much different. And it's not like I'm using soap and hot water to clean it. I'm literally using a dry silk cloth like the one I clean my lens with.

No, seeing that it's been like this before I even touched the sensor

Please tell me you're kidding.

PLEASE!?!?!?!?!


That is such a bad idea on so many levels.
I don't see what the big deal is. I've done it before on all of my other cameras... (which are perfectly fine btw)

I literally live 2 and a half hours away from the closest place that sells a cleaning kit for a camera sensor, hence why I'm asking for another way to clean it

You probably can't see the damage due to all the dust and fibers covering up the scratches. Trust me. Keep using your hillbilly method and you'll eventually be asking about how much it costs to replace the sensor.

Thanks for all of your guys help I suppose
