I was taking a few pictures of DS today when I noticed there was a blackish gray blob in the bottom right corner of all of my shots!! After panicking for a bit and doing a bit of Googling, I've come to realize I have a dirty sensor! Of course, me being the blonde I am, took my lens off and lightly dusted the pieces right there on the inside (I have no idea what those pieces are... they look like glass), only to make it worse! Now I can SEE dust particles when I focus. :doh: At least they're not showing up on my images just yet, though.
Anyhow, this is the WORST timing ever! A friend of mine just had her first baby a few weeks ago and asked me to take pictures tomorrow! So now what? I have a gray blob in the bottom of all of my pictures! Do I cancel? Do I shoot and just edit them all out? Everything I've read on sensor cleaning seems too advanced for me, though I hate the thought of taking it somewhere and out a camera for several days. I put my camera (Rebel XT) in clean mode, and you can SEE the spec on my sensor. So I know that's what's causing the blob in my pictures, but I obviously don't dare touch it.
What do you ladies do? I've read a lot on the Copperhill Method.
