when I take pictures outside ,everything in the picture seems to have pink icicles hanging off it. I have an Olympus compact point & shoot camera which I received as a birthday gift in 2007. I love this camera but now I dont know what is wrong with it. It also uses "XD" memory cards , not SD .
Can you post a sample picture somewhere to give a better idea of what you mean by "pink icicles"? I take it you don't get those when shooting inside. Are you using the same settings for indoor and outdoor shots?
