Have you tried using a different memory card? –  Matt Grum Feb 5 '12 at 18:18

Just to be clear: is the corruption visible on the camera's LCD screen right after taking the picture, or not until you transfer the photo onto your computer? –  drewbenn Feb 6 '12 at 4:26

mattdm's link looks to have the same problem as you. Please have a look at that question.

To figure out where things are going wrong, you want to eliminate things one at a time:

  • try a different card. If that works, you know it's your card

  • if you have reformatted the card from Windows, try again from the camera menu

  • try shooting RAW + JPG and see if both files look the same. If the camera is faulty, you might get lucky and find it can't product JPGs reliably, but the RAW file is fine. If so you'll just have to switch to shooting RAW and converting to JPG out of camera.
