Default 10d stange dots its no dust

I have a 10d for 2 weeks.
It is a very great camera and i love it.
But there is one strange thing.
I din't notice it in my first pictures.
I take a picture of the sky ans there appairing some strange dots.
Take a look at the link.
I also used different lenses so this is not the problem
It's no dust but it is something else.
Can someone tell me what it is then.
And how to fix it.
And falls this problemm under the warranty.

Good news is that it falls under warrenty (for one or two times). Bad news is,,,, it is dust. On the Sensor inside (well actually the protective screen in front of it).

Now, there are people that clean it themselves (I have), but they know if they screw the pooch, Canon ain't coming to the rescue.

In your shoes, I'd try the very non-intrusive method of:
powering up
setting open mirror in menu
remove lens
use Bulb blower (not compressed air -- just manual)

If that doesn't work, I'd google for one of the sites that talk about cleaning CCD/CMOS sensors.

And if you are the least bit worried, send it in for cleaning.

Oh, those must be "really big" dust particles if you can see them at those apetures. Normally you point the lens at the sky and use like F22(or a little less), to see them.
