Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare P850 Digital Camera ?

Producing distorted images when zoomed

\015 Hi,Please help me on this.I got this Kodak p850 camera and.. while I was testing it saw the pictures it took were distorted... when switched on, if I take a picture without zooming.. it turns out fine.. but if I zoomed then it gets distorted. while fooling around I found that I if gently push the lens (barrel to be precise) towards right (while on) the picture becomes clear... I'm suspecting a loosened lens barrel ...... I will really appreciate if anyone could direct me to correct this problemMany ThanksThilina\015

I have a Canon PowerShot A95 that has provided very good service for four years. But recently, the color and images are very distorted in some photos - faded purple in color with the image blurred or melted, sometimes icicle-like or stalactite-like in appearance. This occurs in both outdoor and indoor shots. These distortions do not occur in every shot, but have increased in frequency. This is the only problem I have ever had with this camera.

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted.
