I have not had one problem with the two cams. I get some crazy out of focus pics when the LCD shows a perfectly focused pic.
No errors, no issues.

I guess I got lucky with the two cams.
Also, I couldn’t really tell the difference in quality from the a60 a70 other than when it comes to print out time.

When set on auto or landscape the sky’s look like crap.
If I adjust manually it works a lot better. I need some filters.

Thanks for the honesty, I'm definitely leaning towards buying the A70.

Well, I broke down and ordered one from Circuit City! There were none available locally so, I ordered one from them knowing that if anything goes wrong, I can take it back locally and not be hit with a restocking fee. Now all I have to do is, wait and, wait, and wait.......

Default A70 Price @ Office Max

FYI Office Max has the A70 in stock in my area (Phoenix) for $300 including a high speed 128mb card. Some stores are sold out, but there are a few out there. The sale ends on August 9th.

am I missing something here? I just got a A70 and in my first 2 days of shooting, got some photos with what appears to be light bubbles in it. it occurs in any shooting conditions and about once every 10 shots which is way too often.

is it a bad camera? if I use a filter or polarizer, will they go away?

I'm very disappointed with the camera. the bubbles occur in random places and really ruins that picture when it is in the subject you are shooting.

hrmmm try to take 2 picks of the same subject. Leave the cap on for one shot and take off the cap for the other.

Then use photoshop to blend the two and look for these spots in the same place.

It might be a defect man...
I get maybe 1-100 with one or two white dots.
