Shadows on the bottom of close up photos

I just purchased the Tamron 18-270 lens. When I take photos with the flash on, I get like a dark half-circle shadow either at the bottom or to the side of the photos. What could be causing this?


Lens is to long for the internal flash. Try an external one, it's position is more away from the center of the camera. Normally this should'nt happen, may be that the internal reflector of your flash is disorted.\012Try to get a cheap 430 EX, mor ... Cannon EOS 50D Digital Camera

When I take a photo with my Nikon D90 in auto mode and flash i get a dark spot on the bottom of the image on the lcd that resembles a shadow. there is no shadow in the picture. What is casuing this?


This is more than likely a shadow from your lens. The on-camera flash is in a fairly low position, and I am able to duplicate your description when using my D200 on-camera flash and a physically longer lens- in my case a 28-70 F2.8 lens. Using a hot- ... Digital Cameras

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.


The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Canon 1400 IS: When I take a picture using flash of a close up object, a shadow is cast on the lower right corner of the picture. For pictures that are not taken close up with flash, or taken from further away and just zoomed in to the object, does not have this issue. Do you know what could be causing this shadow issue?


It's most likely the shadow of the lens. The flash is above and to the left of the lens, so the shadow of the lens will be to the right and below. ... Digital Cameras

My camera is producing spots, or freckle-like or shadow-like spots which are noticable on photos such as a clear blue sky photo. The spots are in the exact same place on photos even when I change to different lens. I know the mirror flips up for a photo, but to be safe, I have cleaned it, but that didn't help anything. Purchased camera 11/07.


You have dust on your sensor. your best bet is to get it cleaned professionally, . if you want to clean it yourself, get a kit like this\015\012\015\012http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Survival-KIT-Sensor-Eclipse/dp/B000PNGM18/ref=sr_1_2?s=elect ...
