Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
When shooting with my Nikon D80, the image is black at the bottom. There is a dark gradient that starts at the bottom and fades as it goes up. It only started happening recently. The lens has been removed and cleaned. It's almost like a film fogging issue but there is no film obviously. It is also uniform on every image taken regardless of the lighting. Can you offer any troubleshooting assistance? Thank you in advance....
This is most likely a dirty sensor inside the camera. Cleaning the lens won't help this, and you also can't see it if you look into the camera, since the mirror is in the way. You can look at the sensor if you take off the lens, put the camera in "M" and set the shutter speed to several seconds. Press the shutter release and look into the mirror. It will lift up and the sensor will be exposed. Make sure you are inside when you do this, and don't do it in a dusty or wet area. You may see a cloud on the sensor. If you do, then this is the problem. You can clean it yourself, but it's worth it to take it to a camera shop, and it's not too expensive.
