Question about Fuji FinePix F601 Zoom Digital Camera

Shadow in Photos

I have a shadow appearing in any shots of bright skies, etc in the example attached. It looks like a hair or something, but the outside of the lens is clean and the camera (Fuji Finepix F601 Zoom) is sealed. Has anyone experienced this before, and hopefully found a solution? Thanks

Something on the sensor. Digicams aren't sealed and crud can get in. It's not as easy to get off as that on a dslr but Fuji can do it. Perhpas a talented and knowledgeable (on Fujis) repairman can as well.

Re: Shadow in Photos

If that were a digital SLR I'd say you have something on the image sensor like a piece of lint, making it all the worse in a camera such as yours if that is the case. Does it show up in the same place on the sensor in every shot? If so a trip to Fuji to clean it off is probably what you're looking at. "Sealed" is fine if nothing is in there in the first place, but this was made by human beings, so things happen.

Top edge of my photo is a black diagonal shadow


Sounds like it could be vignetting from either a lens hood or an accessory. Are you seeing this in all photos or flash only? If flash, sometimes a wide shot with a lens hood on will block the flash output and cause the described shadow line.

When pictures are taken outside during the day they are unclear with some white horizontal lines and when taken indoors its ok.tried everything the manual said but still no changes


White shadow or white lines may occur if the light was too bright when you take the picture, especially in strong sun light. Have you turn off the flash light when you taking those picture ? If you haven't, then you should try to turn off your camera flash light manually. And I must remind you not to take a picture with your lens faced the sun light or other light (lamp etc) directly. Even if you take a picture outdoors, try to make your lens shaded by something, you can even use your own shadow to shade them.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

My Nikon D40 has developed a shadow in photos, not associated with lens. Please advise.


Is this shadow more like a spot that you can see clearly in areas of the picture like the sky? If so, this could be dust on the sensor. This is easy enough to remedy. Just Google the words "how to clean a DSLR sensor" and you will find sites that explain in detail with pictures the entire procedure. You will also find the materials needed and where to find them.

Harsh shadows


to avoid harsh shadows moveaway from the bright light,or move object/people close to the backdrop that will reduce the strong shadows.

Spot/shadow on monitor and pictures


Does it appear on the photos if you look at them on a computer or print them out, and does the spot remain when you're using the menu?
If it's there all the time (on menus as well) it would suggest part of the display is starting to fail.
Also, have you done the shutter hold-up so you can check behind the mirror just in case it's something on the sensor (assuming it's not just the LCD that's failing)?

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:

Pictures are underexposed


When you are photographing scenes with mostly light objects (for example, snow, water, and sand), the picture is usually underexposed (darker than it really is). The camera meter registers the brightness of the scene and tries to set the camera lens and aperture for an exposure based on average brightness levels (18% reflectance) causing it to underexpose, as in the following picture. When you are photographing scenes with mostly dark objects (for example, shade, shadow, and overcast skies), and very few light objects, the camera may overexpose the image, causing it to be too light. If you have a flash on your camera, you can compensate by adding "fill flash" for some extra light. If your camera has an exposure compensation adjustment, you can increase or decrease the exposure to correct for these exposure problems. Increase the number to make the image lighter, and decrease the number to make the image darker. You may want to try a series of shots with different exposure compensation adjustments to get a feel for how much difference these adjustments make.
