I have a Nikon D50 with the 18-55mm lens, and I have been getting pics with this grey spot in the upper right corner. Could this be dust on the CCD sensor?




Thanks guys.

YES

see the manual for cleaning directions

there should be a setting in the menu to lock up the mirror and open the shutter so that you can blow the sensor clean with an 'air bulb blower'

(camera on tripod, lens down, wearing a dust mask, on your back looking up)
