So I replaced my 1DS with a new 5D mK2. Less than 3 months old and OCCASIONALLY I get odd areas ( always in the higher exposure area ) of excessive pink! Shows up as soon as the image shows up on the screen. Canon Australia is trying to infer the fault is with the Sigma le

I have a powershot S400. similar to one of the previous posts, the camera first started showing a pink hue in the center (1/3) column of the viewer, which would occassionaly show up on the snapshot. Now that problem has digressed considerably to distortion. first the center 1/3 of the image on the vieing screen will start to take on a pink hue. then the same area will appear to "melt" with pixels of the original image streeking down. sometimes I take a picture and it comes out perfectly

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera
