I have a tiny peice of debris that is INSIDE my lens and causes a crescent shaped shadow to occur in certain shooting circumstances. What are my options to have it cleaned out?

This kind of thing happens often with zoom lenses on P&S cameras. The zoom action creates a vacuum inside the lens which ****** in dust and dirt.

Unfortunately, there isn't anything that a user can do about it, and it needs to be cleaned by a professional. You can check your local brick-and-mortar camera stores to find someone that might be able to clean it. Otherwise, you may have to send it to Sony.
