I was travelling last week (in Rome and Milan) and during my trip I noticed an annoying problem that didn't exist before. Sometimes when I press the shutter button to halfway (to auto focus etc.) the LCD display shows (more like flashes) 1/2 of the picture strongly overexposed. This seems to happen when I have a darker object in the "focus box" and the overexposing affects only the brighter areas of the picture. As I only came back home yesterday I haven't had the time to check how the pictures turned out... But at least they looked entirely normal in the camera's display after taking the picture I can only assume that this "overexposing" occurs only in the "live view" just BEFORE taking the actual picture and doesn't affect the picture itself. Has anyone experienced this or read about it anywhere? Ideas/comments? All I can think of is that something has broken in camera since this can’t be normal (or because I’ve accidentally changed a wrong setting…). I bought the camera less than a year ago so the warranty should cover the repair if it comes to that... I've adjusted the exposure compensation to -0.3 ages ago and I checked my camera settings and couldn't find anything odd anywhere. I think I have the "Digital ESP metering"-mode selected as default. I will try to record a video of this problem with my IXUS 60 today but I'm not too confident that my IXUS can record it accurately though.
