Dirty lens

posted July 9th, 2017
Hi all

I have several specks of dirt on the inside of my sealed lens on this type of camera.


I have tried displacing the dirt blowing with a straw and need help finding a different way to remove the 'blurs' which can be seen in most photos now. I assume the sealed unti cannot be disassembled.

Looks like this is a common problem. If you are under warranty, than you may want to send it back. If you bought at a real camera store you may want to go in and talk with them. If you are without a warranty and willing to try it your self youtube how to clean dust from panasonic .... There are multiple videos and instructions. The reviews on Amazon say this is a common problem for this particular model.

@phillyphotos Thanks Paula I watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nmwt0frZns .I previously took the back off but didnt go in this deep, it seems a lot of risk and wont remove all the specks of dust. so I will probably put up with it.

This is not a solution but if you have Lightroom you could remove the blurs in post processing.
