Purple Fringing with H1

Took some photos this weekend at my sons soccer game and boy was I disappointed in the amount of purple fringing from my H1. Does anyone know what causes this and what is the best way to removing using post processing. Thanks! Treaks

Re: Purple Fringing with H1

I use paintshop pro v9 to remove purple fringing. It has an option under ADJUST/PHOTO FIX/CHROMATIC ABERRATION

it really does a great job even in automatic mode!!! Im sure the latest vs 11 will work even better!

This is common with zoom lenses. very difficult to find any optics that does this. maybe some cameras will remove that within the camera itself.

Remove the purple rim around my pictures?


That is known as 'purple fringing' and is usually the result of the sensors and/or the lenses in your camera not being able to handle higher contrasts or over-exposure. Scientifically it has more to do with the how the camera sensor responds to the available light spectrum. (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_fringing) Have you notice it is generally more pronounced where a very bright (white) area meets a high contrast (black) edge (like a bright sky behind a dark or shadowed object)? Best way to avoid is to be careful about the relative light levels exposures when framing the shot---or using a UV filter. There are many photo editing programs which can help eliminate purple fringing in post production. Have a read through: http://www.photoforbeginners.com/news/tutorials/how-to-remove-purple-fringing-from-your-photos.

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt


If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

When taking pictures there is a color displacement of some sort. Leaves like bright purples and pinks shadowing images.It is worse in lighted areas, the more sunlight/bulb light the worse the coloring...


Hi,

The term for an out-of-focus purple "ghost" image on a photograph is "Purple Fringing."

This is fairly common in Digital Photography.

In order to minimize instances of purple fringing you may incorporate the following:
Avoid shooting with big aperture (Small /f number) in high contrast compositions.
Avoid overexposing highlights (e.g. bright sky behind dark objects).
Shoot with a UV/Skylight Filter or a Circular Polarizing Filter. These protect the lens and also help to Get bluer skies and cut glare off reflective objects.
You could also use Post-processing to remove purple fringing by scaling the fringed color channel. This can be done in an image editor like Photoshop.

These suggestions will help in minimizing the instances of color displacement for you.
I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

THIN VERTICAL WHITE LINE on my photos


If you have the images in your computer them click on the 'Add image to your post' instruction and follow the prompts. But from what you tell me this appears to be a CCD problem and the camera should be returned to the vendor if under warranty or contact the Customer support at Nikon other wise. for the camera to be replaced

Pink Edges in Photos


It is called 'purple fringing' or chromatic aberration. It is quite common with digital cameras, especially those with small sensors. Sending the camera in for repair would not help at all. It can be removed, quite labouriously, in photoshop. Usually it is very seldom so obvious that it would require corrective work. When it is, it is often only in a small part of the image making it not that time consuming to fix in photoshop.

Filter


Skylight filters don't generally block UV, they change the colour tint optically, which you can do without danger of image degredation in post-processing, so I woudn't really recommend using a skylight filter for digital cameras. I haven't tried a UV filter on my fz10, only my circular polarizer. From what I've heard however, a uv filter may act as lens protection (or use the lens hood), and might in some circumstances reduce haze (rarely), and there are unconfirmed rumours of possibly reducing purple fringing. If anyone could ever confirm this, I might consider one. Otherwise, UV filters also seem peripheral for digital photography. Probably the most important optical filter you can use is a polarizer. This can cut a lot of excess scattered/polarized light and reduce excess contrast, increase sky colour saturation, etc. It's effects are extremely difficult or impossible to get in editing.
