Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera
This usually is caused by dust on the sensor.
Since your camera is equipped with an automatic cleaning system, you can try to run a few cleaning cycles - see section "Automatic Sensor Cleaning" in the user manual.
If this doesn't help, the next thing you can try is to blow the dust off, using a blower bulb, as shown in the first part of this video:
To open the shutter for manual cleaning, you use the "Sensor cleaning: Manual" function of your camera.
If you are unable to remove all the dust with the blower, I would recommend performing a wet cleaning, as shown in the first video on this page:
If you want to do this yourself, order the proper cleaning kit for your camera. Use a professional product, recommended for use with your camera, don't make any experiments!
Alternatively (may be the better idea, actually), have the sensor cleaned in a camera repair shop.
For further information just google "DSLR sensor cleaning"...
