I'm trying to make a start in photography so I decided to buy a compact camera, the Canon IXUS 220HS. It makes pretty nice photos for a compact camera, but the only problem I have is the lens flares. Red dots or ovals appear when shooting right in front of the sun.
Take a look at these pictures:
This one clearly shows whats going on, but when shooting normally, you get something like this: Here it is less a problem, but still it would look better if the red dots/ovals weren't there.
Could anyone tell me what is going on here and how to resolve it, if possible.
