    I noticed this on the two Canon A80 I looked at. One was more severe
    than the other.
    When the camera is aimed at a bright object or area, and the shutter
    is pressed half-way, there are red vertical streaks or red vertical
    bands running across the LCD. These red shadows/streaks/bands do not
    show up in the final image, it just shows up on the LCD.

    Anyone knows why this is so? and does it happen on other cameras as

  2. The manual tells you about this, its normal.... as to why, I have no
    idea, I'm guessing that because the camera opens the shutter fully
    when focusing that the display gets blown out along one line...
    possibly... It does say its not a fault and will not damage the

    My take on this is, if the streak is being caused by light coming into
    the front (i'e pointing at the sun, or a very bright light) then dont
    leave the camera pointing that way for to long.
