Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera
I HAVE A C 8080, WHEN YOU FOCUS ON THE SUBJECT THE PICTURE IS FINE AND THEN WHEN YOU TAKE THE PICTURE IT COMES UP WITH WHITE LINES ALL OVER IT
Shoot in RAW, or in black and white, see if it helps. If you shoot in B/W, you can post process the color back in wiht photoshop, itsw a hassle but a workaround for a bad ccd or compression problem.

If live video is ok but captured image is displaying "drop out" I would firstly try switching memory cards as it sounds like you may have a memory location issue. Try a simple test of switching over to your XD card and see if the problem still exists. If this works OK you were probably writing to the CF card, but as flash memory has a finite write cycle life (500 to 1000 overwrites) the CF card may have become faulty.
If you still have the same problem on XD as well, then try using the "pixel mapping" feature in the camera menu to see if this re-addresses a CCD image correction problem.
If still faulty then it is most likely the graphics processor circuity in the camera and it will need to go in for service.
Good luck...hope it goes well for you.
