    Just saw on CNN that Sony admitted that many of it's image sensors used
    by them, Nikon, Canon, etc go bad in high humidity and go black. The
    show said they won't do a massive recall but will fix those at no charge
    that show the symptoms. Does anyone here know what cameras are affected ???

    A month ago, my Sony F-717 suddenly started to produce poor color with
    small white lines across the entire image.

    Turns out it is the CCD that at first they wanted to charge me $425 but
    just at that time SONY must have sent the bulletin to all their
    authorized repair shops so they are fxing it for free.
