Recently I have borrowed my friend's SLR.

I don't know what settings I have changed.

When reviewing a photo, the black parts of the photo are highlighted (flashing) black/white every second.

The manufacturer of the camera is Olympus.

What is going on? How do I fix it?


You're in the mode of the camera where it shows you the over (or possibly under) exposed parts of your images. Its a useful mode, but if you'd like to exit, click the up or down arrow while you see that image to cycle through the viewing modes.


As rfusca said above, This is where parts of your picture has potential data loss due to exposure. This feature is called Zebra when looking it up in your User Manual.
