let me preface this by saying that i am quite the novice when it comes to these cameras, and any help would be most appreciated.
I filmed a video the other day, and when i was looking through the display i noticed that it was foggy around the edges. when i downloaded the footage the white fog was still there. I don't believe any moisture could have gotten in so I'm not sure exactly whats going on here.
Does anyone know what I can do to fix my camera? Thank you in advance!

That looks like some type of Creative Filter, to me. What shooting mode are you using on the top dial?
Do you know how to turn off Creative Filters? Resetting the camera back to factory defaults should clear it. You would first need to turn the top dial to “P”, and then look for the reset/restore option in the menus.

Hi and welcome to the forum:
It would help to have a lot more information please. First of all: what camera are you using and what lens(es) does this phenomenon occur with?
If you are having white around the edges, I would suspect that you have light leakage onto the sensor, or that the sensor is damaged.
Set the camera to Bulb.
Engage mirror lockup (page 449 and 165 of the camera manual) and remove the lens to look at the shutter. Can yo take a phone picture of shutter?
Since it happens with still images can you post a link to a DropBox or One Drive folder where you put a file we can download? Preferably RAW file.
Actuate the shutter. Does the shutter open completely and expose the sensor?
Hi OP, what camera and lens combo are you using. Do you see the same thing in the viewfinder. As Tronhard pointed out you may have a light in your camera. Are other lenses affected by this same problem or only 1 lens.
