My camera Sony a35 all of a sudden started taking photos with one side lighter then the other - almost white. And it's worse with outdoor settings. I have tried cleaning the lens filter and that hasn't helped. Please help! It seems to cut the photos in half and make one side brighter then the other, it's a lot worse in out door settings. Where it is more brighter. I thought maybe the image sensor but not sure I cleaned it we'll.

Here's what looks like a similar problem on a Nikon D5100. It sounds like the culprit is a damaged sensor, possibly due to laser light.
