Default Samsung SL600 Black Dots in viewfinder

When I look through viewfinder I see 3 light spots, as I zoom in they become darker and smaller. The 3 dots show up on pictures also. I have cleaned the viewfinder and the lens, I also took out the battery and the memory card shot air from a can into camera. I put battery back in and left the memory card out the black dots are still there. What are these dots, how can I get rid of them?

Could be "dust on the sensor".Seek help from an authorised repair shop, to get the sensor cleaned.Methinks !

G'day PK

It sounds 'funny'
I would go with the other suggestion of getting it looked at by someone who knows Samsung sensors

Hi Poochokid,by dust I also mean a possible "oil droplets/grease/fungus & co.So better to have the thing checked by someone who knows the stuff, unless it cost a fortune and outweighs the SL600 itself
