Well I took my camera down to vistek where a very helpful and lovely technician gave it a looksee. Much to my surprise the sensor was cleaner than a Bill Cosby joke. She says it has to be something beside the sensor causing this. Maybe the lens but since not all my shots have this issue she suspects it’s camera related. Never dawned on me at the time, but we should have tried my second lens on it to see if the results were the same, which would eliminate a lens related issue. Anyway, the camera is headed back to Canon under warranty. All I can do is hope they fix it without mucking up anything else. The worst part is it’ll be gone for three weeks. 😦
As for the shot above, this is the Canon Theatre on Yonge Street, across from the Eaton Centre here in Toronto. I snapped it at the end of an outing just before the rain came. I figured it would be apropos since we’re talking about my broken down Canon camera. Ironically, there are no spots visible on this shot. Hope you like it.
