there is something blocking the light, there may be something in the flash.

or the line might be your finger blocking the light if you keep both hands on the camera and your finger is flare up. My brother naturally does that and had to learn to close down his finger on the camera when using 2 hands.

If there is something inside the flash that is blocking the light, call canon, and they will set you up with a repair order. All they need is the receipt or warranty card. And they will fix it. They are pretty quick with turn around.

I don't think something is in the flash because not all of the pics have a shadow (like the one I posted). I guess it could be my finger. I was just wondering if there was something I was doing wrong on the settings. I stick to the auto settings on the camera.

Could the camera strap be dangling in front of lens when taking a picture?
