Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera
I've got this camera two weeks (bought it used). It worked fine at first resulting in great sharp pictures with proper lighting. But suddenly the good results started to be lesser and lesser. Ofcourse I went through the menu couples of times to get to know the camera better. This is the problem: when pointing the lens towards a light source it is resulting in pictures with strange vertical beams of light and the pics look heavily over exposed. There seems to be some pattern repeating also. Like when I take a picture of the tv with the pioneer logo on it, you will also see the logo floating in the air above the tv.
I did set everything in auto mode and the lighting metering in ESP. At night time it is not that obvious but a light source (lamp) will result in a straight vertical beam of light like a laser.
Does anyone have an idea why this might happen?
