I just got an SD800 it seems to have a problem related to exposure in video mode. When filming a medium light scene and panning to a very bright scene you get very noticible vertical bands of color. The camera eventually "pops" the exposure down to adjust for the bright scene, and bands are reduced- but if you look really closely you can still discern them.

I made as small an .AVI cliip as I could that would show this problem and put it here (less than 1MB):

I've searched all over and only found one mention of what sounds like the same problem in another users review:

http://www.pricegrabber.com/rating_getprodrev.php/product_id=26198643/id_type=M/page=2/lastrec=15

At first I thought this might be a defect, but then after finding that other review maybe it's an unfortunate problem in the design?
Still images don't seem to suffer from this problem.

Any opinions on what the problem looks like?

Here it's visible all the time! It's related to overexposed areas of the shot:

(this one is a little bigger ~2.8MB)

How long did it take for the camera to exhibit this problem? I have the Canon SD800 for 3 months now and never had this before. I'm starting to worry a little bit since i saw another review where the reviewer reports the same problem http://www.ipelagos.com/pd_canon_powershot_sd800.cfm
