Committed to defending your photographic rights!

CANON is offering consumers free repairs of any faulty PowerShot G10 cameras that produce 'lines' on photos, but adds that only some units are affected by the glitch.

Canon UK says that the 'phenomenon' occurs in rare instances on affected units, and the length of the lines that appear depend on the subject photographed.

'Images that display this

phenomenon cannot be fixed,' adds a statement on the firm's website.

Canon advises users to check the serial number on the bottom of their camera to find out whether it may be among the affected units. For details of affected units, click on 'Support' at wwwcanon.co.uk.

The National Union of Journalists, which released the video, condemned police for breaching media guidelines.

This was an attack on the freedom of the press.'

He added: 'There are clear guidelines laying out how the police should deal with the media: they have to allow them to go about their business.'

Brake, a party spokesman on home affairs, was filming the protest with colleagues in the Bank area of The City

At the time of writing, the Metropolitan Police press office could not be reached for comment.

The 'Notes and Views' section of AP's issue dated 14 May 1897 added: 'The photographic trade is considerably exercised at the proposition... Some are indined to the view that the trade itself should have taken the initiative, but for our own part we think that the whole scheme is well within the scope of the "Royal", and that its far-reaching organisation peculiarly qualifies the society to successfully engineer the exhibition.' The trade's appointment of 'energetic and enthusiastic' delegates to serve on the exhibition's committee was applauded by AP.
