Sony DSC-RX100M3 Sensor Dust [Sample Pics] : [Repaired by Sony]

My Sony RX100M3 has developed some large sensor dust spots, most noticeable in the sky on landscape photos at small apertures. This article shows an example of the sensor dust along with some test shots against a plain white scene at different apertures.

I bought my¬†RX100M3 in December 2014 and it’s pretty much the only camera I use to capture my personal memories and I choose to leave the bulky Canon 5D Mark iii for work only events.

In the last 8 months I’ve taken my trusty RX100M3 skiing in Austria, a long weekend in Paris, a stag week in Vegas, a week at Glastonbury Festival and most recently a week in Switzerland. I look after my kit and it’s never dropped, exposed to moist or excessively dusty environments, kept in a soft pouch, etc. It’s got an official Sony screen protector on the rear and Sony grip on the front. (If you are reading this and you own any RX100 model do yourself a massive favour and buy the Sony stick on grip, you’ll thank me).
