I've replaced this camera but am holding on to it
in hopes of finding out the cause.

I am curious as to what changes in what component
would cause this effect.

Any techies out there got a clue ?

TIA

You got a poltergeist in the house?

Actually I do, but she swears she has nothing to
do with it.

Here's another example.
Maybe I should go to a UFO forum :roll:

Looks to me like the CCD is reacting to light from the lamp which is an effect not uncommon with digital cameras - if you point it away from the light source it will likely go away.

Does the camera take good shot otherwise - if it doesn't, then maybe it's an indication that the CCD's on it's way out.

This kind of effect doesn't happen for my nikon 950, but it's a known problem for recent cameras. Eg... canon g6 gets this kind of effect too.

Take a look at this link ...

The only difference is that while we can see this effect on the LCD of the G6, the photograph (the digital photo) will be fine. But in your case, you actually get the lines in the actual photograph.

It gets even stranger,
If I snap one outdoors on a cloudy day (evenly
dispered light) the pic is whited out, the image
barely visible as if in a fog, and yet indoor flash
shots are perfect!

Go figure.

Well thanks for your input, my new digicam is due
for delivery tommorow, and I'll have more pleasant
images to ponder.
