How to clean a panasonic lumix dmc ts1 lens. i get spots when i take pictures


If the spots appear on flash pics only and are in different places on each photo, then the spots are not on your lens. Those are dust particles reflecting the light from your flash. It's a common problem with point-and-shoot cameras.

White cloudy spots on my images - a recent problem


If these are like "bubble" spots and they appear in different places on each photo, I'm guessing you're shooting flash pictures indoors. The spots are dust particles in the air reflecting the flash. This happens on small point-and -shoots because the flash is almost in the same plane as the lens.

White spot on photo


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, this would be a temperature imbalance on the CCD lens. Often white spot(s) appear at night or when the temperature is cold. Workaround is to open the lens but delay taking a picture after a few seconds. The idea is allow the lens to match the ambient temperature.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

D50 black spot of photos


Ok, step one - find an appropriate cleaning solution - be it an air blower, like a rocket blower, a pads, alcohol and a qtip, etc. Keep in mind that it's not necessarily true more expensive means better cleaning... but I wouldn't go the dirt cheap route of alcohol and a qtip, though many claim they use it. Personally, I use a blower, but I havn't had anything more than dust thus far...

After that, prep a very clean environment, then take off your lens, and clean your mirror!!! Then when you think it's clean, try your camera again... if you still have spots, then you're going to have to clean the sensor... again, I'd use a blower, especially considering that if you ruin the sensor, you've pretty much ruined your entire camera.

If you STILL have spots, check your lens for dust, both front and back lenses. Still spots? Try another lense entirely (might be scratches). STILL on there? Then you probably have a bad sensor... see warranty information and pray :).

If any of this makes you queasy, look in your phonebook for stores that will offer repair, and try to locate the Nikon-qualified if possible.

If you are getting spots regardless of which lens you use, then the stops are coming from debris on the CCD imager in the camera. There are cleaning kits available on the internet and in retail photo stores

Spots on image when using built-in Speedlight flash


As is common in many compact digital cameras where the built-in flash is very close to the lens strange reflections can appear in images under certain conditions. Particulate matter in the air in front of the lens (between the camera and subject) such as water vapor (as in a cloudy day), smoke, dust or other items can reflect light directly into the lens causing neutral colored white/grey semi-transparent spots to appear in the image. In extreme examples there may be many of these spots in an image or there may be only one per image. Also, since these spots are completely random they will move or disappear from image to image. For example, if two images are shot consecutively with the same camera settings one image may have spots while the other is clean. To avoid these spots: When possible, avoid photographing in smoky, dust, or cloudy areas Do not use the camera's flash in locations such as above Use an external Speedlight flash if a flash is needed Review images on the camera and re-shoot if spots are visible Cleaning the lens will not have an effect on these spots, as the particles that cause this are not on the lens itself.
