Few days ago I noticed a bug living in my camera. After much worry and panic, I finally came around to the idea of this little fellow setting up residence within my camera, so I let him stay. I don't know where in the camera he's living, but he pops up every now and then to say hello (in perfect focus), then goes back to his home to sleep.
He's now the official mascot of my Nikon D200.
Now of course, every camera bug and/or mascot needs a name, and I was left stumped. What kind of names are suitable for camera dwelling creatures? I asked people for suggestions and the winning one was "Quack", suggested by salteh (https://www.deviantart.com/salteh)
Using my camera phone
What shall I name the camera bug?
I was taking some photos yesterday and a strange little bug appeared in the viewfinder. I didn't really think anything of it at first, just waved my hand past the end of the lens and it disappeared so I carried on. Didn't even realise at the time it was in focus.
A couple of hours later and there it was again, this time, it didn't move! Of course, it was actually in the camera.
It's only just had the sensor plate cleaned so I'm guessing it got in there around the time that happened, I really don't want to take the lens off and risk getting dust back in it, especially considering I don't need to change lens
