Wonder if your light streaks could be memory related?

The streaks are CCD related and affect all CCD still cams shooting video where there is a strong light source. Panasonic seems to suffer slightly more than some other brands but it is a situation we are all stuck with. Even so this didn't stop me getting a FT2/TS2 a couple of weeks ago for underwater/beach fun. Just be aware of the limitations or if you are not happy with the streaks get something with a CMOS sensor, problem there is you then have the jelly wobble problem, so nothing is perfect.

No worries, it would be great if it was just the memory, would make us all happy
