Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera
Common problem and yes no to user error. You didn't say what lens you were using but I'm going to guess it's an 18mm on the wide end AND maybe you have a UV filter on it to protect the front lens element. What you are experiencing is what is called vignette. I hope my spelling was correct. What causes this is the extreme wide angle view of the lens, actually capable of seeing the edge of the lens barrel, there is another little problem that messes with your brain, you can't see this happening until after the picture is on the computer or you have enlarged it on the camera view screen and then zoomed in on the corner(s). The reason behind this is what you see in the viewfinder is only about 94% of the total image you will get on the view screen (LCD) or see on the computer monitor. So what can you do about this? There are a few things some you won't like. While taking a full wide angle shot remove the protective or polarization filter and shoot a "Naked" lens (correct for contrast in post processing) Stop the lens down to say F8 or F11 which will use more of the center of the lens but still give you the wide angle however you don't get something for nothing. You will most likely trade off shutter speed and need to use a tripod. Make sure if you are using a VR type lens that you shut the "Vibration Reduction" off when the camera is mounted to a tripod or you'll have some more issues. What I do at the 18mm end is shoot it without a filter at F8 or F11 and in post processing crop out the corners by enlarging the photo/print slightly. I call this shooting loose relying on the 6% I don't see in the viewfinder and shoot the scene knowing I'm going to "zoom crop" in Photoshop. Hope this was a help Happy New Year
