Lens characteristics can cause straight lines to appear bent. This phenomenon, which is called "lens distortion," is normal and does not indicate malfunction of the camera. Such distortion tends to be more pronounced when the camera is at an angle when you point it at the subject.

Why am I getting pictures with curved edges edges


Hi Ian
What you are suffering is something called barrel distortion which causes images to appear spherised or "inflated". Barrel distortion is associated with wide angle lenses and typically occurs at the wide end of a zoom lens. The use of converters often amplifies the effect. It is most visible in images with perfectly straight lines, especially when they are close to the edge of the image frame

the way to solve it is to try not use the end of the of the zoom of your lens. Above 20 mm you should be fine. If this is not possible then you can correct the effect in programmes like Photoshop

Hope this helps

Sound like a problem with the CCD sensor; this isn't a job that you could solve yourself. Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.

If this defect occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD correctly when in shooting mode, which results in symptoms like the following in captured images. These symptoms can be confirmed on the LCD monitor. The same symptoms may also occur in recorded images.
* images do not appear
* images appear distorted

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Sony service. I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Good luck.

Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. A problem has been discovered in some of the CCDs used in Panasonic, Fuji, Sony and Canon digital camera and digital video camera products that causes images to appear distorted or not to appear at all. And the says apologize for the considerable inconvenience this represents for your customers. Along with our respectful apology, we would like to advise our customers of the details of this issue and our policy for handling it, which are as follows.

The Malfunction:
Among the CCDs used in the affected products listed above, it has been confirmed that, especially under high-temperature/high-humidity environments, the internal wiring may come undone in some places.

If this defect occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD correctly when in shooting mode, which results in symptoms like the following in captured images. These symptoms can be confirmed on the LCD monitor. The same symptoms may also occur in recorded images:
* images do not appear
* images appear distorted

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; this, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Distorted purple image when camera is switched on


That is weird, maybe try to reset it by taking the batteries out and then putting them back in and starting it from scratch. Electronic problems....yikes.

Rebel (300D) Images are not level


This could be lens distortion. You didn't say what lens you were using, but when you tilt down or up and use a wide-angle lens, you're going to introduce distortion into the image. This will be particularly apparent for anything that linear. Fixes are as follows:

You can go into Photoshop or other photo editing software and correct the distortion. There are MANY free tutorials online that will give you a step-by-step how-to on doing this.

You can also use a more telephoto lens when shooting, which will cut down on the distortion when you tilt your lens.

It's very difficult to see distortion through the viewfinder. Even after many years of shooting daily, I still have trouble with it. My work around if distortion is an issue, is to shoot with a more telephoto lens.

gardenman13, I would certainly complain to HP about their w22 monitor!! Find out if the units warranty is still valid and can be swapped-out for a REFURBISHED unit. Your w22 shouldn't be hazy, distorted, or flicker for any reason. My best guess is that it (w22) has problems inside with it's "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and electronic ballast circuit called an INVERTER circuit, which could also cause the main "switch-mode-power-supply" to go a little NUTS upon STARTUP!! FYI you are dealing with a technology similar to the curlie-Q CFL screw-in light bulbs. Their ballast's are called CONVERTERs (ac to ac) and are cheaper. Your lanps are thinner and straight, hung on rear of your LCD panel. I hope this was informative. Please rate this on fixya. 12fixlouie

Does the screen seem like it's stretched top to bottom? Or does it have a wave like appearance when the object moves on set? Either way some resistance has changed. You may look at board and see a chardd or burnt spot near a resistor. You shoud have value checked and replaced. Also look for any caps out of line or distorted.
