Specks on images and LCD


[link to this post]
 
I have a Panasonic FX35 10 megapix 4x optical zoom. If the camera is used on wide-angle, all is well but as soon as you zoom in, two black specks appear on both the display and any images, always in the same place. The lens is clean so what may be causing this and why should zooming aggravate the problem?

Dead pixel on the CCD?

Interpolaton may mask this on the wide angle shots.

Thanks Andrew, sounds like an expensive repair? I would have thought dead pixels would be more clearly defined but these look as if something has crawled in and died, in fact one looks like a bit of fluff!!

That's dust. Try using the sensor-cleaning function.

This camera is a little pocket job, not a DSLR!

No such refinement unfortunately!

Does look more dusty than a pixel
