Re: screen glare

Silly question but are you facing into the sun at all, they don't always like seeing any of the sun!

My Nikkon Coolpix s3300 displays everything in unfocused shades of purple and anything that is emitting or reflecting light glares like it is being viewed through night vision goggles. Is there a fix

If it works in the morning (when it is presumably cold) and not in the afternoon when it is hot, it is possibly a temperature sensitivity issue in the electronics. I would contact Nikon Support ASAP because your warranty is about to expire. There number is 1-800-645-6687 and the are open 9AM to 8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

Touchscreen has problems with glare; can't see image I want to photograph; also touchscreen surface is mottled;

touch screen has problems with glare look through your options and see if there is a setting to turn up the brightness or a daylight setting. I have 3 tablet pcs a half dozen palm and pocket pc devices, none of which can be veiwed worth a $#!t in direct sunlight. Your best bet is to plan on whereing a baseball hat and holding your camera close to your face if you want to see it in sunlight.
I am not sure if i understand what you mean about the mottled part.

When I am taking pictures outdoors there is so much glare that I can not see the picture I am taking.

Have you tried a glare shield, or LCD hood?

A glare shield reduced reflections, whilst an LCD hood folds out and provides "miniature shade" to assist in viewing.

Here's a 2.5" example (for pentax). Generic ones (such as Delkin) are cheaper.

For more types, search for "LCD Hood" on eBay, Cameras

Glare on lcd screen

it's pretty normal.. try wearing a brimmed hat to create shade, turning the brightness up on the screen, the lcd's tend to get washed out in the bright sun.

When taking pic in sunlight - lcd screen is whited out!!

I think that's normal. I also have experienced the same always when the screen is exposed to sunlight. Try adjusting its brightness or use an anti-glare protection.

Cannot shoot in the sun light

Screen Protector for Portable Devices Estimated Price: Under $10.00.
The original use was for hand held portable gaming system however you can use this on digital camera LCD screens as well.
You can't keep your pictures sharp if you can't see the screen. Protect your Olympus digital camera with a Screen Protector.
The Screen Protector keeps your digital camera clean and protects against scratches. The anti glare coating improves visibility in direct sunlight, so you can take your pictures of the
great outdoors. A polish cloth is included to keep your gear looking good.
You can purchase this at any retail such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target.... they can be located next to the hand held portable gaming systems in the electronic department.
