Hi Guys,
Recently I have noticed a hair line at the top right corner of the photos taken with my k10d,
It does not seem to follow a particular lens. It happens when ever I zoom to take photos, I can correct it with editing software but it will be quiet a job fixing a lot of photos.
Please could this be dirt on the sensor, or the mirror? Could I use a blower to remove this?

Your advise will be appreciated
Thanks

It looks like it is on the sensor - a blower should remove this. Make sure it is a rocket blower type that has a avlve that helps stop dust being taken in, and then blown out putting even more dust marks!!

As above. Its on the sensor, a quick blast from a rocket blower will shift it.

I don't think the mirror has any role in image capturing (I mean after shutter bouton is pressed). That must be on your sensor, .. try to move it with a blower or with a "sensor cleaner" you can buy in any photo material store. Look after "sensor cleaning" on YouTube.

If it is a mark on the sensor - which I agree - it certainly looks like - why would it only appear when zooming?

No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

Actually, if you look closely -- well actually not all that closely -- there is quite a bit of muck on the sensor. It shows up so clearly on this image due to the small aperture.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

And did you notice it is in the shape of a question mark : Your camera playing "What am I doing to frustrate you now"
