weird image issue

Three weeks into owning my K-3. First two weeks great but now I have a problem. Seems to be only when I use HI burst mode. Every five or so shots will have a white bar at the bottom of my shots or left when vertical. All the way across. Anyone heard of this?

Could be a corruption on your card. Are you using a card that's reasonably fast and reliable? i.e. >=45Mb/s write speed

Never seen this. Could you post a sample JPG image displaying the problem?

But yeah, probably a data writing issue. Should be simple to test.

How about uploading the actual photo rather than a photo of the photo on your screen??

Actual pictures.

Along with lightness, it also is sometimes blurry where the light spot would normally be. Only noticed it happening when shooting burst mode at fast shutter speeds. Thanks for any help.

Seems like the curtain isn't closing before shooting again and you're getting multiple exposures where it's exposed to the sensor.
