    Just turn the camera back on and the SSS is flashing all the times.....I never did notice it until now, always thought that my hands shakes too much

    Any recomendation on fixing it or replace it with something else. TIA.

    My A700 (2nd body) is at TeleplanCameraRepair right now for the same reason - only my viewfinder was waaay off. It's going to cost about $200. I'll report back when I receive it.

    If you can live without Live View, I think the A700, at about $800, is a steal. If I was looking as <$500, it would be another A300/350.

    Re: Dark spot on Photos

    Nope I get that on my canon sensor all the time. I think personally it is a flaw in the sensor, since I sent it in and spent a ton of money having them clean it. Never again. I will clean it myself or shoot it through the fracking lens. I still get that on sky shots all the time. I have to clone it out if I care. Really annoys me. It is one of the reasons I am moving away from the rebel body I have. I can't afford a new body, so I guess I will just have to figure out how to live with it.

    There are all kinds of videos on YouTube on how to clean a sensor. In reality you will be cleaning the filter in front of the sensor as there generally a filter on top of the sensor.
    If you are having dust spot issues they should show up across the shutter range. Posting a picture or two should help us figure out what you got going on. The knowledge base here is pretty deep. You came to the right place.

    I would like to add that dust spots can show up on some pictures and not on others. The smaller the f stop opening you use the more they will show up and if you use larger openings like F2.8 or even 5.6 you may not even see them. A good and easy way to check to see if you really have some is to set your f stop at a setting such as F 22 and point your camera toward a nice blue sky and and take a picture, then look at that image on your computer screen. If you do have spots be sure and try a dry cleaning of just blowing them off with a rocket blower or something similar first BEFORE you try a wet cleaning.
