I have the Canon PowerShot SX10IS. I have used this camera and successfully uploaded my photos to my MacBook OS 10.4.X now for several years.

Hi, I have a two year old Canon PowerShot SX1. Recently began to think my shutter speeds have been on the low side, based on ISO, aperture, and general lighting conditions outside. Went out and purchased a Canon PowerShot SX130 just to compare. Took about 25 shots with each, same subjects each time, same settings, same position, about 15 seconds apart.

Pink areas. I'm a professional photographer and recently my wonderful old workhorse - a 1DS Mk 1 - started giving OCCASIONAL pink highlights.  Canon Australia Advised me that I needed a new chip at an astronomical cost.
