Evaluate the pic : got a black spot in sun

  1. Sep 23, 2006 #1
    The picture was taken last Holy Week: April 13, 2006 while in a ferry ride from Samal to Davao (both in Philippines). I took the photo and noticed a black spot in both pictures. Can anyone explain the spot. Anyway, it was took about 4:50PM, the last ferry going to Davao.

    Some digital cameras have trouble dealing with oversaturated sensors and you can get spots like that on them.

    A lot of older television cameras had the same problem. You'll notice the same effect in some videos from the 50s-70s if they happen to have a bright light in the shot.
