This story has been around for months, and ran= in U.S. papers when the camera first hit stores in the states. The story was that if you used the "night" mode in full daylight, it could "see through= " clothing, and Sony promptly withdrew it to make a fix that would prevent that. I read this reported as fact - which does not necessarily make it so. It = may be true, or it may be an urban legend on a par with Kentucky Fried Rat, t= he Baby In The Microwave, and the Spiders In The Buddle-Yum. Did any LUGer actually see an early version of this camera, or a televisi= on story demonstrating its "abilities?"
