Hi there. My name is Roger, and it would be my pleasure to help with your issue.

These spots on your camera are normally specks of dirt or dust on the imaging sensor o the camera. Many times this kind of issue will require that the camera go in for a sensor cleaning, but there is a couple of things that you can try at home that may be able to get rid of the spots.

Try using canned air or an air compressor on the lowest pressure setting and blow short bursts of air into the tiny gap where the lens and the camera body meet. Do this with the camera body facing downwards and after every few bursts, check it to see if you still have the dots. Also, check to see if the dots are moving around the picture on the camera. If you can get them to move, you should be able to eventually be able to get them out or at least off of the imaging sensor.

Hope this helps. Let me know if there's anything else that I can do to assist you. Please don't forget to click accept and leave a positive rating for me. Thanks and have a wonderful afternoon!!!
