Notice how I have not been blogging much lately? It's because I have been having camera woes. I am not very camera savvy, so I am hoping that someone who reads my blog can point me in the right direction. Three and a half years ago, we purchased a new, not reburbished, Nikon D40x. It has had its quirks along the way, but mostly it has worked well for what I use it for, which is basically point and shoot. A week and a half ago, we were working on our Goodnight Gorilla project. When I first started taking pictures, I noticed nothing unusual. Then, I snapped a picture and it came out like this.
There really is no pattern to it. I have changed lens and have had the same problem, so I am guessing it is a body issue. The ISO is on Auto, but does this seem like a sensor needs to be cleaned? Can I clean it myself? Do I need to take the camera to a camera shop or is it an easy fix that I can do? Is there still hope for my camera? Thanks!
