Default Canon A40>>> Bubbles on the pictures

I have a problem with my camera. When I take picture inside and in dark conditions, I get kind of bubbles or blured spots on the picture. Those bubbles are different size and always at different place on the pictures. When I take picture outside, there is no problem. Maybe dust floating in the air cause reflection with the flash? I have submit the the case to the retailer and he's gonna talk about this to a Canon specialist. I have several pictures in stock to demonstrate the problem. Need help please. :?:

I got A40 too. You have to use the programed ae mode and set the white balance to match the type of the light. daylight and etc. you need to set it to tugsten (it thing that was the name). in good light conditions you don't need flash. and one big recommendation, buy tripod. i bought on small the day after i got the A40. it's about 20-30 cmmm and can reach 1.9 meters.

The bubbles are dust in the air. They reflect the light of the flash, and look large because they are close to the lens and therefore out of focus. It isn't just with the A40...it happens with the smaller Fuji's as well (FinePix 1200, 1300, A101, A201, etc.). It hasn't happened so far with my FinePix 2800, just with my 1300.
