you need to check that the lense is clean . Hold the camera up by the window and if it is dirty then clean it with a soft cloth. After you have cleaned it check it again as my camera had dirt on the inside of the lense. If lots of your photos have blotches then contact sony as this surely cannot be acceptable.

Well, there is complaining that camera works perfectly when light is good and photos are clean and neat. Than when light is dim and flash is ON photos filled with blurry rounds.
Let's be logical and presume that dust cannot come inside when it is dark for a night rest and than leave camera in the morning for a daily routine.

All this blurry round circles on photos are images of small particles in the air that bounce flash light back into camera's lens. When you take photos in combination of ambient light (regular bulb lights in house) and flashlight, this is not so evident and sometimes invisible. It depends on ratio between ambient light and flashlight. But when flashlight takes precedence, you can see stark dust reflections it creates.

This is common for all cameras with built-in flash that fires straightforward.
If you want to reduce or eliminate effects of dust ghosts, you need to disperse flashlight with light boxes, bouncers and so on.

okky I make a lot photos and the problem is infrequent

but today speak whit a seller (I think that he's """"expert"""" mah) told me that the problem of spot is very common with all cameras.....(that he sell I presume) and on the net I read that yes it's common (or not rare)

Ihad a Canon A530 and Fuji, Agfa, Philips digicameras but I never see dust...

:?:?:?

p.s.

Excuse me s_grinsbut I don't understand or tlaslate: "If you want to reduce or eliminate effects of dust ghosts, you need to disperse flashlight with light boxes, bouncers and so on"

I guess we can add the T9 to the list of Sony cameras that have a dust problem (in addition to W-1 and P100).Check out:

for possible fix if out of warrantee - worked for my W-1.

It has nothing to do with camera.
If you want to fix the problem, use air purifier.

If you have dust IN CAMERA, it will show every shot
Stop tormenting your cameras, start thinking

All the "T" series cameras reflect dust in the air showing up as white spots in the picturebecause the flash is too close to the lens. The dustIN the lens problem is something different and mostly P100s, P150s and P200s suffer from this problem.
