Black at top right and bottom left of photos

When I am taking pictures with my hs50exr, I sometimes get a black/grey/white mark in the upper right and lower left of the picture.  I am using the camera in EXR mode, as I just got it and am still trying to figure it out.  I am not using the zoom in this picture.  As far as I can tell, I am taking pictures the same way and sometimes I get the marks and sometimes not.  Anybody experience this or know what to do?

Are you using the lens hood or a filter by any chance?

That looks like vignetting from either a lens hood or filter. There is also a very slight shadow in a third corner (upper left).

My husband was using the lens hood.  He is going to take some more pics without lens hood and see what the pics look like.  What is the lens hood for?

We took a bunch more pics without lens hood and they were all fine.  Thanks so much!
