When “White circular spots” appear in flash photos

How can the “White circular spots” be reduced?
  • Light the room and shoot the subject without flash.

  • Select (Anti Motion Blur) or (High Sensitivity) mode in [Scene Selection]. ([Flash Off] is automatically selected.)

  • The flash strobes twice. The first flash adjusts the light quantity.

  • While charging the flash, flashes. After charging is completed, the flashing icon will light up.

  • When shooting with the flash and the zoom is set to W, the shadow of the lens may appear on the screen, depending on the shooting conditions. If this happens, shoot away from the subject or set the zoom to T and shoot with the flash again.
