Just curious if anyone has seen dust specs in their flash pictures. Here is what I currently see with my current p&s...

It did happened to me but with Canon A70. But they were perfectly round, and only while using flash. Never happened with FZ 10 (yet).

fmoore, So you are saying this will happen often with the FZ20 too, with flash? I would think it would happen less, since the flash is raised up a couple of inches from the lens. It is not as close, as on very compact cameras.

Perhaps the fz20 would less prone to dust flash reflection than the a70. Obviously it depends on the amount of dust. If there is alot of dust, maybe you'll only get two dust orbs in a shot with the fz20 and 4 or 5 with the a70.

There has to be a LOT of floating dust in a room for this to happen in my experience (FZ20).. It does happen once in awhile but is very rare.
