    depending on ur shutterspeed i guess.
    if u shoot at 1/1000 ,the camera processes it faster
    but it u shoot at 30/1, it needs longer.
    i'm not sure about the cameras now, my processing speed is = to the time the shutter opens

    No one helped you????

    Already 2 post that has given their 'opinions'. If you're not convinced, I suggest you drop by Canon to get 'expert' opinion. I'm sure they will be most helpful.

    By the way, congrats on your new cam.

    Don't worry. This is smearing, which is a characteristic of the camera's CCD and not an inherent fault.

    I am using Eneloop right now.

    Had tried the GP batteries (Not Recyko) and I find that it lost charge quite fast.

    Eneloop can last very long for me. So, do not think I would change to other brand for the time being.
    Let's get rolling :)

    Don't worry. This is normal and there's nothing wrong with your camera. If I'm not wrong, this phenomena is explained in your manual. As long as your picture quality is not affected, this is OK.
