Sensor failing? If yours does check this for free fix!

I've stumbled over this notice in several places but couldn't get a
good overview on the problem nor on exactly which cameras were
affected. Until NOW that is. The original page has been around for a
while but they updated it in February of this year.

The guys over at Image Resource .com have pulled it al together
and listed the cameras and serial numbers of the "recallable" cameras
on a page at
http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

I had checked my S2 when this poped up the Fuji web site but didn't realize
how widespread the problem was until I looked at the above page....holy sh@!

Although not many of the high end cameras are on the list, whole bunches
of the P&S are there (you know the ones we give the loved ones so they'll
leave our babies alone :{)

Take a check....

Way to go Sony! Interesting... I thought Fuji manufactured their own sensors... not just designed them and had sony make them.

Sony's got two strikes now... the laptop battery fiasco and this sensor mess.

The only thing they need now is to have someone discover that
blue-ray burners catch fire and explode due to gamma radiation....
:hitme

hmmm is there any money in starting a rumor?? (just kidding)

Blu-Ray is set up to fail at it's current price point. Cost of the players needs to be as close to $150 as possible. Good players are well over $1k and decent Blu-Ray PC drives start at $700.

Couple that with this rumor I heard about a man who was killed when his Blu-Ray player exploded from an abundance of Gamma Radiation buildup. He had a family... a dog too... very sad. :D

The dog lost a leg, half his tail, both ears and twelve teeth. They call him Sue now.
