Looking for some help here, i recently purchased the C-8080, very pleased with the camera. Then, about a week ago, when out taking a few landscape pic's, it froze up, Lens half extended, no lcd display, no viewfinder display, nothing worked ! repeated pressing of the power button had no effect. I then removed the battery (which was fully charged) for a few minutes and replaced it, no response at all, so I removed the battery again, packed up, and went home. That evening, I tried again, I found that by pressing and holding the power button for about 10 sec's, the camera came back to life, all the pic's were still there on the xD card, but the time and date in the camera memory needed resetting. I continued using the camera with the same xD card for about another 50 shots, all were viewable on the lcd screen at the time of taking, but when I attempted to view them on my pc, I could only find the pictures taken before the freeze up, no trace of the subsequent 50. Any comments, or theories out there ??
