Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera ?

Funny colored display in bright light


\015 As long as I take pictures indoors everything is fine. When I try to take pictures out of doors or in brightly lit areas, the display and pictures come out a negative color (kinda reddish). I thought I might have selected a setting by accident so I reset everything back to the factory defaults. No change. I tried a new memory card as well. It makes no difference which mode it is on.\015
