Question about Pentax Optio W10 Digital Camera
No not dirt, what it's called is lens flare. Lens flare is where a sharp/bright point of light enters the lens on an angle and causes the light to refract through the lens elements. This is hard to see happening on a pocket point and shooter and equally hard to prevent. What can be done is you hold your hand above or to the side of the camera out of it's field of view to cast a shadow on the lens and the flare won't happen. However sometimes you get your hand in the pictures. Even on my pro cameras and lens combination this happens even with the use of a lens hood. The good part of this is I can see it happening through the viewfinder. The only other thing I can suggest is to change either the angle of the camera or recompose the scene or subject to the point of light is not causing this flare.
