  1. Make sure lens is clean on both ends. Use a lens cleaner NOT glass cleaner & use a cleaning glasses cloth. No paper.
  2. \015\012
  3. If that does not solve problem you have moisture (condensation )on you image pickup. you can take lens off let camera air out place clean lent free towel over opening to keep particles out off camera.
  4. \015\012
  5. If that does not work you will have to have it cleaned by a repair shop.
Going from hot or clod environments or wet climates can cause moisture to gather on image sensor & inside camera always try to keep camera in a camera bag & avoid sudden temperature changes.
