Looks like the same problem with my A80... Canon accepted the unit under warranty/recall review to be sure. Cool support group.

I recently purchased a canon powershot sx20 15 and it is slow!

You need to do two things. 1. Take a Q-Tip dampened in rubbing alcohol and clean the battery contacts inside the compartment. Clean the battery and the charger also using the same method. 2. Go into your main menu and restore all factory defaults. You should be all set after these steps are taken. Thank you, Dana

Weird colors in viewfinder

Sounds to me like a CCD problem, which is a bad thing. CCD faults were quite common in the early S2's. It would be worth contacting Fuji about.

can you insert a few images into the thread to have a look at. Need more than one to check consistency of problem.

Images shoe up red

sounds like you might have an overheating CCD. Turn off the camera for couple of hours and when you try again if this happens again, return it to the store you got it from for warrenty repairs.

Distorted color on image

You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
