Default Canon A70 'bubbles' or water spot on photos problem!?

Hi,
I have a problem here. When I took my pic recently, i found that the photos have a lot of so called 'bubbles', it seems like a water spot on the photos. I checked my lens but it doesn't have any dust or water spot on it. I found that some user also have the same problem on this forum! Anyone have any idea how to solve this problem? I think the 'bubble' or waterspot problem only occurs when taking shot at nite facing a bright light sources. Should I ask Canon to claim for faulty unit?...

Thankx

Hi
In user guide documentation for A70 you can find explanation (reflection from dust or something else when using flash.....) so there is no use to contact canon.
Before A70 I had Olympus camera and sometimes (when taking night shots) bubbles occurs!

Don't face the light source! I know, easier said than done but what's happening is that light is entering you camera lens and bouncing around in there. When that occurs, you get the "waterspot" effect. Someone had a post in the Sony group a little while ago about the same thing. Your camera should be fine but if it continues, I'd print out some pics and take it to a camera store and see what they have to say.

rgds,
Mark
