The exif is strange, 1.2 megapixels? Also, was the camera in manual exposure?

no it is the dreaded diaphragm block failure that plagues this model, some guys on this forum will tell you it is perfectly acceptable. I wonder if it happen to them if they would sing the same tune
In doubt that. When that happens the exif doesn't say f22 it shows a much more wide open apeture. The fault appears to be the way the camera is set.
