I don't require a lot from my camera for this blog. But one thing I do expect is that pictures don't have a million horizontal lines in 'em, and they're not super bright...like this one:
I never really figured out why or how this started happening to my A430, and Canon didn't say anything either. They did, however, offer me a refurbished A470 for sixty bucks shipped in exchange for my old camera.
Look at all those lines! It's like I'm taking a picture of something on TV.
And this is with my new A470, which is an upgrade over the A430...though they're pretty similar. My old camera was about three & a half years old, which, unfortunately, is considered ancient in electronic years. It served me well. I'll miss it.
