the other day i took a picture of the sunset with my vivitar 3785 digital camera and when i looked at it i noticed this big blackspot in the center of the sun i know the spot doesnt show up on any of the photos i have taken since so there is nothing wrong with the camera is this something that normally happens when you takea picture like this or am i doing something wrong?

Is this just when you look at it on the cmaera? Could be that the camera is just showing blown high-lights (completely overexposed areas). Won't be there in the actual picture in this case.

Here, it looks way to overexposed, so I got rid of the black spot and changed the contrast and levels, to make it a better pic.

Well, the blackspot I can't explain. Perhaps just a problem with the camera. Vivitar isn't a very well known brand.

That kind of thing is easy to correct with photoshop as shooting_rubber demonstrated.

Also, shooting the sun is NOT the best idea, you can ruin your camera that way if the CCD gets too hot.

Yes, that editing job took me about 20 seconds!
