I now think that the reason of that dusts are some particles in the air.Look at the fotos now i am sending.I took these in the clean room where there are only 10 particles in one metrecube. the flash also light but teher are no dust. What about your ideas?

Yup, as stated in the other a75 thread, it is just dust and junk in the air.

I think it is a problem with all of the aXX line of cameras. I used to have the a20 and had the same problem.

But which cameras do not have this problem? I'm fed up with all the "orbs" I'm getting on the photos taken with my A70 and I want to buy a new digicam. But I don't want to waste $350 on a new camera just to discover that it's no better than the last one.



Is the Sony DSC-P93 "safe"? The flash is located pretty far away from the lens on that one compared to the A70 and that must be a good thing, right?

I am sorry that I don't know about other cameras, but pretty much all of the Canon PowerShot AXX series cameras have this problem. I have a PowerShot G3, and don't have this problem and I know people who have Kodaks and HP's that don't have this problem. But I am not farmiliar with other brands then Canon. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

The mystery orb issue is not unique to the Cannon ax series. All cameras with built-in-flash are vulnerable to this problem. The problem stems from the relationship of the flash to the axis of the lens; the closer the flash axis is to the lens axis, the greater the chance that the lens will intercept (failrly bright) specular reflection from a dust mote in the vacinity. So the smaller the camera, the higher the probabilty that reflection from a chunk of dust will get recorded. My teensy Sony U20 has this problem in spades, my Oly C3020 has only rarely recorded a mystry orb. And my DiMAGE A1 has never (yet) seen the problem.

So the P93 should probably be ok then? The flash seems to be located pretty far away from the lens on that one.
