The picture we all get is something on the sensor. We've seen it many times. Besides dust, moisture condensation can also do that if you have taken the camera through a change in temperature. From a warm house out into the cold for example. If you are lucky, this can evaporate and the camera be fine afterwards.

Another thing... don't shoot it green box auto mode. That makes the camera decide what it wants to focus on and often will pick something of high contrast that you didn't intend. Switch to P mode and use the green box in the center of the screen. Then YOU can control where you want the camera to focus.

Try some more test shots with the above... Best of luck.

I have a G11 and I must have changed a setting at some point but I really don't know. I now have blurry spots in my photos. Also, in some evening shots the headlights or shiny bumper of a car were so bright that it was the focus of the picture when it wasn't supposed to be. Thanks for the help in advance!
