OK, now this is a bit odd. I only recall seeing this on my Dimage A1 and for a camera like the A700 it is very weird. In some images taken at higher ISOs I see some lines running down certain areas of the image. It is not like banding and they are vertical (on the Dimage A1 they used to be oblique, particularly if using drive mode, the first would be alright and the second and the third would have said lines in them). In honesty, it just happened today and it would be great if someone could tell me why it happens or if I need to return another camera. Here's one example where you can see what I am talking about. If you look at the top left side of the hat and running down part of the subjects face (more accurately over the left eye), there are these vertical "scanline" like lines. As I said, I only used to see this with the Dimage A1 and when I sent if for a free repair under Sony, it had the CCD replaced (according to the engineer's report, but I still see the lines there). Now, this camera is only a few days old and I am not sure if I should continue with the Sony now. I was happy with the camera until today. Any ideas?
