Disease on camellia leaves?

Not sure I've posted this in the right place, but if someone can help it would be great to know what it is, how to solve it and also how to keep the plant happy. What are their ideal conditions?

    Camelias don't like alkaline soil so try and avoid watering with tap water if you are in a hard water area.  It's worth saving your rainwater for them.  If you do have alkaline soil you can get erricatious plant food.  They don't like the morning sun as this can cause their flower buds to drop off.  If you can post a photo it will help with identifying the current problems.
