    On cleaning my HS20 tonight I noticed what appeared as dust laying on the inner lens.

    On closer inspection it looks like maybe condensation. However, after about 3/4 hours of use it remains there so I guess it's not that.

    I've attached a thumbnail, if anyone has any idea what it is and more importantly how to get in there to clean it.

    It doesn't affect the picture in anyway, but I would like to keep it clean for my own sake.

    Hi, i also have a HS20 but i dont have this problem, but i understand that you slide of the top clip type of thing, then give the cover a quater turn , which way i cant remember. that way you gan get to clean the inside.

    Yes, thanks but I have obviously done that. This is behind the lens.

    Anyone know how to open the machine up to get in there ?

    Hi Ekko Star,

    My HS10 does seem to be suffering in the same way. I haven;t noticed a drop in Picture Quality but if you do find a not to invasive way of cleaning it I'd be very interested.

    Mike.
