Your pictures are funny. They were probably not taken using the same aperture and shutter speed. I can go out right now with my camera and take a
photo of the sun with a fast shutter speed and make the sun look like a dark brown circle. I can then increase the shutter speed and make it look
bright white like it's going supernova.
Camera physics. That's all it is. The sun isn't brighter.
I'm amazed at how many people in this generation do not know how cameras operate. Then again, in the age of point and shoot and automatic everything,
it's no wonder. Back in the old days cameras were all fully manual and people who used them had to understand the physics behind light to operate
Not to mention your first pictures were taken with film and the last ones probably digital. Digital cameras do not have as much dynamic range as film
did and highlights (like the sun) tend to get blown out quicker.
