A camera didn't make a great picture anymore than a typewriter wrote a great novel.

Saw the Candy and missed the question :lol:

There was no dark corners on the uncropped original the dark corners are lightly shown on a few pics not shown but It's pretty bad on some airplane pics I took the other day some times the corners are dark and most notable is the TLTR BR and some were TR BR.

I do see it. Well, that is too bad, but I understand that it is not acceptable. I did go back to previous pics I have taken and have not noticed the same dark corners. Thank the good Lord!!! Maybe a faulty camera???

Any idea what is causing it?

Okay, I checked out the first video I took with this camera. Please excuse the poor vidiography. A little shakey, and some too fast panning, take your Dramamine!!!! I do believe I see some on the right when I first zoom in, around the 5 second mark. Do you see that, or any more on this video? Not seeing it in any pics. Still checking!!!

ETA: The only dark corners I have found is in post 13 of this thread. But that is what I was hoping for :)

I see it in your video it is very very faint nothing as bad as some other videos I'm seeing now.

I had a closer look at some of my sx20 videos it faintly shows darkening on right which to me not a problem and never noticed darkening edges in any pics with it.

there is a setting on the camera that produces dark corners. It simulates an old camera look. A camera site that tests cameras produced that effect on one of their image samples as well as the video samples.

Looks like a great travel camera, might have to check one of those out, how far out does the lens extend at the longest zoom setting?

Umm..He's Sick, My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass-out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious……

My camera is at home. If no one answers you by then, I will check it out.

Sorry about the misunderstanding:o

Easy enough to mistake, appreciate your taking the time to post and will look for your update later, looks like a neat camera to have at hand.
Again, much thanks,
