Hello Rina...

It's the Infrared Filter on early Olympus Digicams. The IR Blocker filter didn't work well, causing these cameras to be IR sensitive. Your seeing a wavelength of light that is invisible to human eyesight.

Quite fun, really! Infrared in the film days was quite a pain and not much fun. Digital Infrared is just wonderful...
