In-camera spot removing

by GeorgeBradford / November 1, 2012 2:11 AM PDT

Hi Everyone,

Which entry-level digital SLR (approx. camera price around $500) has the best touch up as far as removing spots?

Thank you in advance to any and all advice!

Clarification Request
Just wondering.

I've only been at this for a bit too long but my lesson was to get the image as raw and pristine as possible then edit it later. Always saving the original so I can try again.

I would not look for such a feature.

I don't know of any camera that has such a feature.

Spots are usually caused by having dust on the sensor of DSLR cameras.
This occurs when you are changing lenses in a dusty environment.
Most newer cameras have a type of vibration feature that will shake the dust off the sensor.

"Any camera can encounter dust circles if you are taking flash pictures in a dusty environment.
It is caused by dust floating close to the lens and then a dust particle is illuminated by the flash.

It takes photo manipulation software to fix any picture that has either of these problems.
The dust circles are much harder to fix and requires an experience user of the software.
