i just returned my XTi to costco, without any CF cards or anything, just the camera and kit lens.

I may be paranoid but,
Is there any way that they can pull some images off the camera? I took some very sexy pictures of my girlfriend nude, and now she's giving me heck saying that the Canon people may see her boobies.

are there any artifacts left on the camera, maybe in the buffer, that someone may see?
Please, someone give me some technical jargon to calm her down.

There is no magic smoke in the camera.

What difference does it make if it does happen? I'm sure the people at Canon have dealt with crazier things. She shouldn't worry so much about that.

Were they the most recent pictures you took?

There is no secret storage, no CF cards, no images.

Yes the last 100 images are stored in a buffer that only the Canon techs can access. Once that buffer is cleared all images are stored @

It's like the retina of a dead man, you can lift the last image directly off the sensor if you know what you are doing. Hopefully they don't try and do that...because there's also a secret GPS in the camera and they know where you live.
:lol:

Crazy thing to try, take a picture of US currency with a camera that is a US market camera and see what happens when you look at the image on your computer screen

If I were you, I'll we be calling/emailing Canon immediately, begging them not to release the images. For that matter call Costco too:lol: ....j/joking.
Only some P&S cameras that have internal memory will make you life miserable in your situation.
Buffering is just a transition/holding "space" while images are transferred to the CF card.
On the other hand, I don't know if the FBI labs have a secret method to extract images from the buffer/sensor/or anywhere else in the circuitry of the camera. Maybe someone else will chime on this.;)

no, i took them about a week ago and have shot about 50 pics since then.

I am not the one who really cares, but my girlfriend won't cheer up until I can quote some technical jargon that says noone saw them. (she will hold it over my head until i can prove it so if someone can give me good news that means i might get lucky tonight)

:lol:

It depends on the exif data stored within the images. Please post the images here so that we can inspect them and we will be able to put your girl's worries to rest.

The only place they could be held is the buffer, and if the buffer has been filled and cleared since they went through it, then they're not going to be there.

I think you can assure her that the photos are long gone and no one will be viewing photos of her without her consent. :)

I dunno, I think you need to post them, and then let us verify that we didn't see those on the camera when it came across our desk.
