This is most likely a shadow of the lens.  The only realistic way of preventing this is to use an external flash.

Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR Vs. Nikon Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX are they the same len or not? thanks, Ricky at rpotter@eatel.net


No. The VR lens has 15 elements in 11 groups, the other has 13 elements in 9 groups. This indicates that the two lenses have different optical designs. The main difference, however, is that the VR indicates "vibration reduction." This lens has motion sensors and tiny motors that move the lens elements to compensate for camera motion, producing clearer pictures when hand-holding the camera.

Shadow on bottom of picture when I use a flash and 12 mm lens


Are you using a lens hood? That could create the shadow.

We just bought d90 nikon camera and we found a small half-round shadow at the bottom of the pictures taken when we dont use the zoom lens, how do we correct this?


Are these pictures taken using the built-in flash and with the hood on the lens? If so, you're seeing the shadow of the lens hood.

Remove the lens hood when using the built-in flash.

Hello guys fuji film s1 pro problem


From the Fuji S1 Manual:

F-- (Flashing) or (lit in M Mode)

Cause:
The lens mounted is not a Nikkor lens with built-in CPU or no lens is mounted on the camera.

Solution:
Use a Nikkor lens with built-in CPU (excluding IX Nikkor lenes). (Note that pictures can still be taken in M mode.)

Uneven flash


Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top and bottom?

What we are looking at is if you have a very wide angle lens with the lens shade attached to the lens, then the built-in flash catches part of the lens shade and make a shadow on your subject... take the lens shade off and try the same shot and see if that makes a difference...

Have a great day...

Shadow on image


The camera has a main mirror that you see with the lens off and a sub-mirror underneath the main one. It may be the sub-mirror is not flipping up completely when you take a picture. It could be off its hinges or damaged. Any good camera repairman in your area should be able to confirm this

Shadow across photo


Shadows, especially circular shadows, are pretty common with the pop-up flash. What you are seeing is actually the shadow cast by the end of the lens. This happens especially on wider angle shots.

The solution is to find a way to get the lens out of the way of the flash. You can get an external flash, like a 430ex or 580ex, which elevates the flash far above the lens. That is an expensive option so first you might try making a diffuser for your pop up flash, which softens the source of light and helps eliminate some shadows:

Shadow on image when using built-in Speedlight


The built-in Speedlight on many Nikon cameras is designed to be a convenient way to either light up a dark subject or to add fill light to a daytime scene. The built-in Speedlight cannot replace a full size, external speedlight which should be used when more power or coverage are needed. Because the built-in Speedlight is compact and close to the camera it cannot be used under all conditions. When using a lens that is physically very long, a subject that is very close, or a wide lens hood it is possible that a shadow may be cast upon the subject. Notice, in the sample below, the round shadow in the bottom center of the photo. When the lens is too long or the coverage is too wide with a close subject a shadow of the lens itself is cast. In figure "A" below the lens is casting a shadow. Switching (or zooming) to a shorter lens (figure "B") prevents the shadow and allows even illumination. If your lens, subject, or lens hood choice create a shadow, an external flash (either on the camera's hot-shoe or connected to the camera by a wire or wirelessly) should be used to fully light the subject.
