When I filming with my P3P all is okay. Execept in the following situation:
When I'm filming and the sun is right behind me, there is a light spot in the centre of the frame. When I pan to the left and the right, it disappears. So does anyone know what this is?

Changing video settings make no difference.

I have an example of the issue right here. (right click --> save as, 114MB).

That is a normal optical effect that happens with all cameras. You normally don't see it because you normally aren't taking video with the sun directly behind you.

Thanks. I see why I wasn't able to remember what it is called. :)

It's also called a Glory because of the halo effect if you are looking at your own shadow.

I will just have to call it a sun spot-- because I cant even pronounce those -- much less remember them. Good to know.
Thanks for sharing.:)
