Hello everyone,

I was at the house that I am building tonight taking some pictures and noticed something funny about the images. In the week I can only go to the house after work when it is dark outside. My camera is a Canon A85 and I have had it for about 2 months. Some of the images, not all of them have what look like blobs or spots on them. In some of them there are very many, and in others just a few. I at first thought that they where stars in the sky, but the attached photo shows them clearly not in the sky. If anyone has an opinion as to what is causing these I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Peter

Well, all I can say is thank god you didn't post this on the Panasonic forum. Those crazies over therewould be saying "UFO's!" "space aliens!" or "exploding fairies!" or something like that...

By any chance, did you go from a cool environment to a warm one just before taking the pics (can't tell what the climate is)?

You are seeing a flash reflection on dust in the air close to the camera

The dust thing makes sense as there is lots of exposed dirt and sawdust etc. in the area. As for taking the camera from a cool to warm environment, it was the opposite actually, from my warm car to the cooler outside.

Thanks for the input.
