Default Purple Spot

Hi All I'm new to the forum and a novice with a camera. I use a point and shoot and mainly on the Automatic setting. The camera I have is a Fuji film Finepix S 3400, I bought it about 6 months ago. Lately when I'm taking picture outside in the bright day light with sun or even overcast in the snow, I've been getting a slight purple spot in my picture. Can anyone tell me what this is and how I can correct it. Here is an example of what I'm talking about. TIA for your help

Shocked. no one answered. and Welcome to Stevesforums.com for starters.

If you are getting a Purple dot, or called lens flare. and do not want it to be there. do not shoot with the sun in front. keep the sun to your back?

Sorry I do not see a purple issue in the pic posted.

And if this is not the answer as well, then lets hope a pro can jump in to answer

enjoy the site

That purple spot is a Newfoundland.

it does look like a bit of lens flare, compacts dont have lens hoods like dslr cameras but you can still avoid this by trying to shoot with your back to the sun or if the sun is to the sides shield the lens from the sun with your hand just as if your shieding your eyes.
