Blooming Elph 330 HS

Today I tested my new Elph 330 HS.  The performance & sharpness seem fine, but it showed horrendous blooming when shooting into the sun at maximum (optical) telephoto.

In the affected shots, the setting sun is surrounded by an array of 8 purple blobs, and some other related strange objects are faintly visible in the frame.  None of my other cameras has such a kaleidoscopic reaction to the sun.

I Googled "330 HS blooming" and could not find any complaints.  Have any of you had this problem?

Thanks in advance.
