Anybody ran across this problem with the 300D ? i shoot 4 or 5 pics and a vertical line appears in the images. I let the camera set for ten minutes or so ,shoot a few more frames and it starts all over again. Set all settings back to default, formatted the card in camera to no avail. Using a Sandisk 512 (new) and I've hadthe camera for 2 days. Please tell me it's not the sensor.. Will call the camera shop Monday if no one has had this problem. :evil:

The CCD (sensor) can, under EXTREME conditions, exhibit what is called "spill Over".

This is caused by an INTENSE light source overloading some pixels which "spill over" into other areas of the sensor. The result can appear as vertical lines or sometimes in a "starburst" pattern similar to the old star filter.

If this anomaly is happening on all your shots- then there is a good chance you got a sensor that slipped through the quality control folks.

Let us know what happens with the situation.

Called Canon tech support this morning. They adviesd me it was an internal problem that slipped thru QC. I read into the techs answer that this was'nt the first they have heard of . Advised me to return the camera to where I purchased. Took it back this afternoon for an exchange. Now I"m happy!:-)

Shake-

Great. Glad it went so smooth.

This is REALLY a very good camera, minor gripes aside, it will do just about anything you ask. Put some GOOD glass in front and let 'er rip !!
