Taking pictures under fluorescent lighting may require a faster shutter speed and result in slightly 
changed brightness or colouring, but this is not a fault.
Red banding may appear on the LCD monitor or part or the entire screen 
may have a reddish tint, when recording or pressing the shutter button 
This is a characteristic of CCD and may appear if subject contains brighter areas. 
Some blurring may occur around these areas, but this is not a fault. This will be 
recorded in motion pictures, but not in still pictures.
We recommend keeping the screen away from strong light sources such as sunlight when taking

White round spots like soap bubbles appear on the recorded picture.
If you take a picture with the flash in a dark place or indoors, white round spots may

not a fault. A characteristic of this is that the number of round spots and their position 
differ in every picture.
