Question about Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My T7 has developed severe chromatic aberration

Hello, I've been using a DSC-T7 very happily for the last year, but it suddenly started getting a massive amount of chromatic aberration. Has anyone else experienced this? The colours seem to seperate most of the time now. Especially (but not exclusively) when I use the flash. I have not knocked it as far as I know (is it possible to misalign the sensors?)... or could it be humidity? Is there anyway to fix this? Many thanks, Sasson

Re: My T7 has developed severe chromatic aberration

Not everyone is happy with this camera, though most are. It could be that your camera has developed a fault with the sensor, and I would suggest that you hurry and use the warranty if it's not over yet. One thing that users of this camera agree on, is that the flash is poor. It's range is very limitied, and the camera just isn't built for indoor/night shooting. If you have the subject within the flash range, which I would guess should be around 2 meters, then it should be ok, otherwise it's not known to give good results. If it gives poor results in full daylight, and the settings are default, then I would guess your camera developed a sensor problem. Good luck

Smoky stain inside lens ,poss fungus between Lens elements. ?

Fungus in a lens is the end of the lens. It is living and eating the coating. The coating is essential for the characteristics of the lens. Without it, the lans will have more chromatic aberration, flairs and will not be as sharp. Although I have seen advice to remove it with acetone, please keep it dry (silica) and start saving for a replacement.

Images distorted purple what is the cause and how can resolve this

Is the lens clean? only clean with a lens pen or a very soft cloth. (one you would use to clean glasses) Purple also could mean lots of chromatic aberration that only can occur when the lens is not correct in place. Did anything happen with the camera? like falling or bending in a pocket?

Sony cybershot dsc - t7. the display says ''lens cover closed''

It appears that you have already tried what I'd have suggested as a last resort. Apart from cleaning the contacts and removing the battery for 15 minutes there is not much that can be done.

In my opinion it is better to purchase new camera than to spend so much on this one. Note that sony may also charge you a checking fee if you decide to send the camera in hope for less costly repair than they estimated.

And yes, it would be fruitless to dismantle the camera if you are not qualified for this stuff. There are no user serviceable parts inside and also there are timed mechanical switches which can be difficult to reassemble without a proper schematic.

PS. Please do not use Vodka for cleaning electronic components as it contains small amount of moisture. Use Isopropyl alcohol.

LCD screen went black

No. It is likely that there is still water in it. It's very important that you take the battery out and do not try to use it. Take it to a repair shop and be SURE to tell them it had water in it so they can take the appropriate steps to clean and protect it.

DSC-T7 Blurriness

Try this test: Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness. If the picture is still blurred then there might be a problem with the AF but if it isn't blurred then the problem is either camera shake OR subject movement (or both).

Purple Fringing with H1

I use paintshop pro v9 to remove purple fringing. It has an option under ADJUST/PHOTO FIX/CHROMATIC ABERRATION

it really does a great job even in automatic mode!!! Im sure the latest vs 11 will work even better!

This is common with zoom lenses. very difficult to find any optics that does this. maybe some cameras will remove that within the camera itself.
