Question about Cameras
Mine had the same problem (except the stripes are horizontal). I sent it to Canon and sure enough it is the CCD problem that many of these have. The good news is that it is covered under a recall and Canon will fix it free, including the shipping.

On the lower right side of the lens (as viewed from the rear) is a small button that releases the ring around the lens barrel. Removing the ring reveals a bayonet-style mounting flash that allows you to attach a lens adapter for extended telephoto, wide angle, or macro capabilities. Visit your photographic stockist for info on what is available
