Im just wondering if anyone knows what those yellowish circles are in all the t1 pics with flash. I cant post an example cause my pics are too large, but I am sure anyone with a t1 or w1 has atleast seen what I am talking about. Is there anyway to prevent these circles from appearing, as they are basically making my camera useless to me.

Isn't that just the dust on the lense (mind, not IN the lens, ON the lens)???

I do have it at times, when I'm using a flash in a VERY dark place. I thought it to just be a itsy bitsy dusty lense.

Without seeing the pictures, or knowing shooting conditions, it will be difficult to diagnose your problem. Two possible answers that come to mind are lens flare (if shooting a very bright object..) or simply reflections of dust. Try to resize the images using software, or take some at the lowest resolution so you can post an example.

It's called dust orbs. Dust particles in the air being lit up by the flash. The T1/T3/T33 all do it. The closer the flash is to the lens, the worse it is.
