Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it.
