    Hello, Today I discovered that with my DVX200 I have an unsharp, dark spot at the top of the picture. It doesn't change when I zoom or focus, so it's dirt behind the lens. Does anyone have any idea how I can remove that?

    This was my answer to someone recently asking a similar question:

    "In short, you can blow it off if it's accessible. If not, you can't and will have to service the camera with Panasonic, or hope it eventually moves to a different area of the glass that's not as noticeable.

    Dust in the inner chamber of cameras is a known problem due to poor quality control (for a particular unit, not in general), and most people just live with it as it's usually only noticeable at higher apertures."

    Thanks, the spot is very noticeable now, but only at 1080p, not with UHD So I think that's gonna be my workaround.

    I was going to add that sometimes it's worse with smaller sensor cameras and slow glass.

    Is it a new spot? If so, maybe it's on the outside of the glass and a good lens wipe can get it off.

    If it's new but on the inside, that's unfortunate.
