    my camera seems to be putting a shadow in the corner of some pics, am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the camera? Is it the angle of the sun? It only does it on some pics but it's driving me nuts.

    Here is an example, look at upper left and lower left corners:

    I don't know, but that picture is gorgeous. Do you have a bigger version I can throw on my desktop?

    I can email you a couple.

    I can't seem to do it through the "email this member" function, pm me or post your email and I'll do it.

    How do you hold your camera? If you are shading the lens with your hand it will do that. If its a pocket cam just having your knuckels to close could do it. If its an SLR and you keep your hand on the lens while shooting that will do it.

    It's kind of in between a pocket point and shoot and an SLR, but I don't put my hand anywhere near the lens, I've had it for several years and this seems to be a new thing.

    It's an Olympus C-700 if that matters.

    those climbers rappelled down shortly after, scared the sh*t out of me just watching!

    Also, note there are no shadows in the corners.:(

    If its a fixed lens there might be fog inside.

    It's hard to tell from the red X... but fixing it (assuming it's not operator error, which it sounds like it's not) would probably cost you quite a bit o cash... Maybe it's time for an upgrade? I got my Kodak P850 with 12X optical zoom, more little gadgets than I've even discovered yet, and 3 more MP for $287...

    Just do it, mang!

    But I guess... It IS a nice camera if you want to keep it.........................................

    12X optical and 5 MP for $287? that's not bad.

    I've been going back and forth with the wife about a good digital SLR like a digital Rebel, but then again $800 is steep.
