Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

Shadow on image


\015 I have a nikon d80 and some of my images are displaying a black shadow near the bottom of the image, the shadow is in the shape of an arc...i thought it might have been the lens hood, but i tried taking some images without it and the same problem occurred\012\012thanks for your help\012liz\015

Answers :

I think the shadow could be the shadow of your lens when your using the built in flash. i had the same problem with the 18-135 that came with the camera but if you use a shorter lens (i mainly use a 50mm) or stop using the built in flash you shouldn't have the problem.
The camera has a main mirror that you see with the lens off and a sub-mirror underneath the main one. It may be the sub-mirror is not flipping up completely when you take a picture. It could be off its hinges or damaged. Any good camera repairman in your area should be able to confirm this
