DMC-TS25 Spots when using flash
Nov 25, 2013

When this started happening I sent the camera in for a warranty exchange. The issue is still present with the "new" refurb. Just contacted Panasonic again. This was not a cheap camera. The non-flash pictures are great.
What is this? What causes this?
The lens, at least the outside, is clean. Tried different memory cards and no improvement.
Given the nature of the case, supposed to be water proof, is this some dirt or something inside the case?
Upper left corner of the calendar quite noticeable, but there are other little circles in the shot. They seem to be in same location as well. So either dirt in the image path or something with the sensor?
Not happy with Panasonic at the moment. Will see what they say tomorrow.
Would appreciate understanding what to call these....?
The first camera did same thing which is why I sent it in for an exchange.
