    If it's difficult to get to a shop, you could buy a sensor loupe and at least inspect the mirror and sensor yourself as a first step. If there is a film or water spots on the sensor, then at least you have some idea of the issue and what you need to do next. I have the Carson SensorMag loupe and like it. It's inexpensive, like $20. And you'll need a loupe anyway if you ever intend to clean your camera's sensor yourself.

    Re: Condensation question

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I'm on hold right now and may not get to look at it for awhile.

    Last Friday afternoon, I was driving an elderly neighbor around town doing errands when I noticed a flashing light way off to my left in my left eye. Then I noticed every time I turned my head quickly to the left (like to check for traffic at an intersection), it flashed again. Like a lightning bolt - a thin, vertical bright light. My wife took me to the ER and after two ophthalmologists spent over 2 hours shining bright lights and poking in my eyes, told me I was experiencing vitreous separation. The vitreous fluid (very thick gel) attaches to the inside of the eye at several locations. One of those was in the process of separating. The exposed nerves cause the flashes of light. I'm also getting more than the normal number of "floaters". They said most of the time they will separate with no problems - may take weeks or even months. However, if it doesn't go right, it can tear the inside lining of the eye and require surgery. Oh, and to add to the fun, they said this usually happens to both eyes about the same time.

    My wife and I have wanted to see the Southwest (USA) for many years. Since we retired last year, we spent the entire winter planning a 5,500-mile, 4-week driving loop to see Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Zion, Mesa Verde, Arches, Canyonland, Colorado, and Old Rt 30 (Lincoln Highway). We had our bags packed and were going to leave yesterday (Monday). Obviously, I'm not about to embark driving on a trip like that driving with flashes in my eye. Plus, if there's a problem when we're in Death Valley.....???? So, after all that planning, I spent Sunday afternoon online and calling hotels and tours to cancel. Very depressing! Oh well, maybe this fall.

    When the eye situation settles, I will get back to "focusing" on this issue. I just didn't want you to think I was ignoring you.

    Thank again.
