Can anyone tell me why I'm getting vertical streaks (mostly green and magenta) in the video? Although the streaks are not continuous, they happen frequently enough to spoil the recording?

Do you get these with different memory cards? What card brand, capacity, and speed class are you using? Did you format the card with the camera's internal formatting routine?

So far the only card I've used is an 8GB, Micro HC class 4, and no, I haven't formatted it using the internal routine. The video otherwise looks good and plays without any jitter as long as I use QuickTime for playback. I do have some other Kingston cards I can try and if that doesn't clear things up I'll try the format routine. I was wondering if anyone else had ever experienced this issue.

Although it seems most prevalent when flying into or nearly into the sun, I don't think it is lens flare. It has an "electronic" look to it.

Oh, that's different. I think this can be caused by over-saturation of the camera CMOS if the auto-exposure doesn't adjust quickly enough. I've had that happen on occasion, but it's not very often.

Even at that, formatting the card with the camera's internal routine is recommended for best results. I'd also try a more common brand of card if it's a frequent thing... Micro HC is not one of the mainstream brands that are known to work well in this camera. There's a list of cards that are known to cause problems (mostly faster than class 4) in the FAQs (post 3), along with a list of some that are known to work OK.

Thanks for the reply.. guess I'll have to open it up and see if it can be straightened, are there any secrets to opening the case up without damaging things?

For reference, I think it's about 17g in its case.

Well I have a #3, liked it, bought a #11, didn't like it, so now have a #16, LOVE it.

This is basically straight out of the box, (well packet, and then charged), other than I chamfered the lens hole in the case to reduce reflected flare, (read that somewhere).

Shot with the #16 mounted on the side of my sunglasses.

I almost fixed all the previous problems, now I upgrade to beta firmware.
I still have a major issue: after recording 1 or 2 min of video the cam shut down with 3 red led flashes.
Battery full charged (charged by externar charger) also tried a different battery but same result.

I'm using a 1Gb no brand card, could be the problem?
