S100FS: Pink band on EVF and LCD after focusing
Apr 16, 2008

Hello S100FS owners,

I just bought my new cam and started playing around a bit, realising a strange and annoying phenomenon.

When I half press the shutter and the camera focuses on an area with some very bright areas - for instance a window, while shooting indoors - both the EVF and the viewfinder will show a strong, pink band above and below the bright area. This is only visible in the focused preview, not in the actual picture and not before focusing. I double checked with an F11, which does not show such a behavior, as well as my Ixus 300 does not. It's not only a slight, pink cast, but quite strong and easily visible.

This makes it hard, if not impossible, to properly compose a picture, as the actual colors in these areas are no longer visible. Has any other S100FS owner experienced this phenomenon, too?

Cheers
Uli
