I wiped my lens many times, before i wanted to take a picture of the landscape and the moon in the background, i have a HP M22 Camera, and took a few here's one, didn't expect orb's one bit.

I know Orb's are not taken seriously but i thought i would post this up for better review from people who know more.

You used a flash... yeS?

That would explain a few things.

Could be alot of normal things. Looks like a plane or helicopter with its lights on heading in your direction. Could also be an light on a building or radio mast. Or something with the camera and flash.

By the way, what was the moon phase that night? Was it full, or tow days before or after the full moon? It does give me that impression.

I am not a photography expert but from my amateur experience the moment I saw those pictures I thought of lens fungus. Sometimes moisture gets inside the lens and all sorts of nasty fungus decide to show up
(and it doesn't matter if you wipe it).

If that is the case you should take your camera to a specialist - I'm not sure but I think the lens can still be salvaged. But I am sure there are people here that know a lot more than me about photography

Ive seen pictures similer to this taken by ghost hunters who insist that they are orbs, spirits of the dear departed.

He is talking about the faint orbs...... the bright light is known to be the moon.

Was it raining at all? If it was then a flash would make the droplets look just like that. I've taken thousands of images at night, and its the same effect.

Not at all, in fact all pictures i have taken have been fine, really close up, no rain, i will post pictures of other pictures i have taken from this camera if you wish, very close up and good.

I have had a death in the family, which does make me think.

If you are positive that there was no rain or moisture, and the lens was clean of dust, fingerprints and dry.. then I'd be willing to consider that. Verify the above conditions and keep shooting, try to capture it again

Just to add to what I said before - the fact that the picture is of a dark landscape would make more visible any problems in the lens so you might have not noticed they were there before.


PS - I'm sorry about your loss

You are in the city, honestly looks like dust or possibly your flash reflecting off of water particles in the sky??


I dunno ive always just thought of orbs that are supposed to be paranormal a little differently but who knows....I guess we need the opinion of a photographer.

Did you use a lint free lens cloth?

BTW, "wiping" your lens will cause micro scratches and degrade it over time.

Naw, Those cameras have cheap lenses. If it gets trashed, the camera is junk.

How far apart in terms of time between the two shots? The perspective seems the same but the orbs have moved and the numbers of them has changed.

About 3 seconds, no more than 5.
The air was dry, no moisture, and is basically a fairly new camera, i have taken lots of pictures before with the same camera, never seen these before.

There is no way to tell between orbs, dust, or moisture in the air, i guess its just one of those things, thanks anyway.
