Default Is it something wrong with my F717

Is it something wrong with my F717?

Today Ive made some outdoor photos without flash after 2-3 shots, the viewfinder went black for a second- I know that this is normal that after shot EVF is going black, but it went black twice:

Black for a second
Black for a second
*screen ok (visible)
Black for a second (again)

It happened about 3 times
what do you think?

normal mode, jpg-fine
I have sandisk MS pro 256MB-it was empty

sorry for my english...

I think you have a problem. I`ve tried to recreate your fault on my F717 but it doesn`t happen. When you say screen goes black do do mean black or blank blue whilst processing. On JPG you shouldn`t have a reapeat delay problem only with TIFF while processing. Try the standard 32MB memory stick that came with the camera. The fault may lie with the 256 stick. Let me know.

One thing that could cause it is a low battery
