Image Sensor Disaster

It senses images but, alas, it didn't sense its untimely demise. Our digital camera's image sensor went kaput yesterday *tears rolling down cheeks* *sniff*. The images appeared like brownish ghostly figures. Our camera is now at the shop waiting to be sent for service. This may take about 2 months I heard *cold sweat*. How to wait that long? Uughoohhh!!

Bye... let me go and cry now... Waaaahaaahaaaa!

Hey no worries, you can use mine. Make sure the service people quote the price of repair before they go ahead.

Their two months can drag to 4 months and then....they will tell you at the end of the 4th month that they need to change something that will cost a bomb and then... I guess you know the rest. I went through that but lucky I got a 1.3MP 3 years old camera to substitute.

Yup, same problem occured to my Canon A70! Went looking online for some answers. Many have complained of similar CCD problem in their Canon Powershot A series.

Good news is Canon have released a statment on this CCD malfunction and have agreed to repair the cameras for free. Here's the link: http://www.canon-asia.com/index.jsp?fuseaction=image-phenomena_notice

Here's another link pointing out that other brands of digital cameras-Fuji, Konica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus and Sony-have also encountered similar problem: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0510/05100602canon_ccdproblem.asp

If you own any of the listed camera models, please send them back to the manufacturers for free repairs/replacements.
