    Greetings all

    I have recently purchased a fujifilm Finepix F10. This is the first camera I have owned in a long time so I am quite green when it comes to this subject.

    I took a few photos today and noticed a weird dot on one of them. I'm curious as to what could cause this. Is it just sun reflection or could it be a fault in the camera? I have attached an image with the spot in question circled.

    Any help with this question is much appreciated.

    Regards
    Goober

    PS - The girl is covered in fake blood as it was a low bugdet horror movie shoot. Thought I better mention that.:wink:

    It could be a regular lens flare from the sun that obviously was shining brightly, as can be seen from the reflections of the car ... and while I wonder how a lens flare from the sun directly could be found in that very spot, I would not be too surprised to hear it is a reflection flare, for the cars reflect the sun quite a bit!

    Others - in the hope they can see you pics, too, and I see both of them - may be able to tell you more.

    Oh, and by the way: Welcome to ThePhotoForum!!!!

    that doesn't look like lens flare. Is it on every pic and in the same place each time? If its on every pic it might be a bad spot on the censor thats my first suspicion.

    Thanks for the welcome.:D

    So far of all the photos that I have taken, there is only one more that something like that appears in so hopefully that means the camera isn't a dud.

    Here's the other shot. I was testing out the flash, so at the time it was taken my back yard was in complete darkness. Not sure what the white thing is. Could be a bug blinded by the flash lol.

    Cheers.

    umm...so is anyone else curious about the blood in the picture?

    might be a dirty sensor.

    I think it's just strawberry jelly... :D (or something less tasty).

    He mentioned it in the original post.
