Question about Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera
I've been using Nikon Coolpix 5400. It's a great camera, nice features. Normally when I don't use the camera I remove the batteries. Recently there was a period when I did not use the camera for about a month. When I put in the battery I noticed that the internal clock had been reset and all my menu customization was lost. OK this is because the internal batt got drained. But curious things started happening on the LCD display. It had purple patches in the image preview. Sometimes the patches clear but appear again. The final image that I shoot is OK except for a light purple band on top in some images. Why should this happen and how is it related (if at all) to the internal batt being drained. Any help fellas?
Don't rush to the store. CCD's in video cameras have it, My Coolpix has it. It has something to do with the way information is written to or read from an LCD or CCD. And although it looks bad, it's perfectly normal. Use an early days $50,000 broadcast CCD videocamera to record a person welding and you'll get a perfectly vertical white line in your image. But as you said: It's not in the actual image of the Coolpix (although I wouldn't know if it will show up when you make a picture of someone welding).
