Has anyone had a similar problem with their camera?


I can post more info if required.

It looks as if the sensor is dying, but try another SD card.

I'd try another SD card first. Also reset the camera, and if you haven'y already, remove the battery, leave it out for a bit, then put it back in and try again.
