I have a Canon S1 IS camera for a couple of years and I am quite happy with the results.

Recently, all photos I am taking come out pink (see sample attachment)

Any ideas? Is it some setting I changed by mistake or is it some kind of malfunction?

In this photo you posted, the pink areas appear related to thehighlights in the file. Arethe other files that exhibit this issue highlights-related too?

In terms of digicams, the S1 is getting a little long in the tooth now.If it were across the entire image I would venture a guess you might have a sensor going on you, but this may be a processing-related malfunction if it's related to just the highlights in other files.

In either case, it may be time to see about picking uparelatively inexpensive newS3is while they are still available.

my first thought was purple fringing gone to heck. are you shooting this in auto mode? try the manual or av and tv modes, and change the white balance. in this setting, you might want to try daylight or cloudy.

and yes, an s3IS would be a definite improvement. im selling mine in a few weeks, depending on the availability of the s5 IS here in the philippines by june ^_^
