Recently purchased a Canon 550D and when previewing an image on the camera, it appears fine. After switching it on and off, the image appears as a small version with "Can not display preview". When viewing the images on a computer, the bottom is cropped on to the top of the image and it's as if there is a coloured filter over the image.

Importing Images Hi, When we take photos on our 500D we can preview the photos on the screen.
