White or purple streaks appear in bright areas of the subject, or the whole screen of the image becomes reddish

  • This phenomenon is called smearing. This is not a malfunction. Smearing is not recorded on still images, but is recorded as streaks or uneven colors on Sweep Panorama images or movies. ("Bright areas" refers to the sun or electric lights which are much brighter than surroundings.)
