    I'm not too sure what this is, but I think this is a sign of dirty sensors. right?
    this has been happenning only when I shoot things in a landscape far away or subjects very close. Also if this is a dirty sensor what should I do to clean it

    At first I thought it said "dirty seniors" and I was scared to come into this thread.

    I don't really want to mess with it, I have never had the lens off the camera. So I don't know, this is kind of shitty. It's like big blotches in almost all my photos.

    as long as you don't touch the sensor, you'll be fine using a rocket blower like that. its either your sensor or dirt on one of the glasses. most likely the sensor though.

    does it really take off like that? yes, just press a button on the side. as for dust, it works nice for that too ;)

    I wouldn't suggest that to someone who isn't comfortable doing it.

    I bought a cheap ear-cleaning bulb for 5 dollars that does a great job.

    Pec pads work well for the actual cleaning.
