S100fs - possibly defective EVF/LCD
Mar 31, 2008

I think my S100fs, which is taking very good pictures, has a problem with the viewfinder/LCD. In high contrast scenes the viewfinder (and LCD) turns purple after I half-press and the beep is heard. That can be seen in daylight, with artificial light I don't see that. The two pictures were taken just to illustrate when the problem appears.
In the first picture

the right-hand side was purple,

and in this one, almost the whole frame, except the right-hand side where the wall can be seen

Anyone has a similar problem? Otherwise I really like the camera, it takes very good pictures (not these two, these are just examples to illustrate the problem), and the IS is MUCH better than I expected.
I think I should ask for a replacement.
