it all started with cherries

Also, here's to an available light photo taken at almost 8 p.m.! Does anyone else dread summer solstice?


Smarter people than me: Any idea why I'm getting vignettes on these photos? 50mm lens, 5D... this photo is almost straight out of the camera.

    i was getting the same thing on my d700 - i still don't know why. congratulations on your new camera. and yes, i dread summer solstice bc it makes me sad the day after. shorter days :(
  • deb PRO 5y

    Is the d700 a full-frame? Did you not have it with your previous Nikon? Are you using a 50mm too? Sorry for the barrage of questions, but I suspect it has something to do with the full-frame thing; maybe I didn't notice it before when I got less in. Or maybe I need to RTFM. :)

    that manual is like a beast. plus i managed to lose it when I went to DR... thankfully, everything is now online. d700 IS full-frame, yes and it took me sometime to adjust. from what i understand - bc the 50mm is a portrait lens, you get it a lot with portrait lenses. try upping the ISO and also having a larger f-stop and see if it helps... it does make me want that 20-70mm zoom everyone's raving about.

    oh and didn't have that issue with my old d70s.

    Yep. I can't believe the peak of daylight is only a week away. Boooo. It seems like it should come next month instead.

    Wait a moment. You didn't put cherries in those sweet little chocolate doughnut balls, did you?

    Deb, I'm a Nikon user, & I know that some cropped-sensor lenses have vignetting on a full-frame camera. It may be worth checking the specs on your lens - with Nikon what I've noticed is that lenses suitable both for cropped & full-frame tend to be more expensive. Hope this helps!

    Thanks. Looks like I found my explanation under "Vignetting" over here; I use the 1.2 and didn't notice the vignetting before I went full-frame (because I'd only see the inner rectangle). Fancy that!
  • Olga Massov 5y

    Are you able to fix it? It doesn't seem to be the case on my pictures anymore. Though for the life of me am not sure why!
  • deb PRO 5y

    The guy on that site suggests stepping down the stop, that by 2.8 it was gone. I haven't played around with it yet, but it makes sense.

    I would call it a loss of sharpness at F1.4, which is what is used in this photo (thanks for allowing us to see EXIF Data!), not vignetting, which is when the lens barrel starts to protrude into the picture. I love the new photos with the 5D, they are making me drool. I've already started making recipes from your site. Yum.

    Thanks, Patrick!
