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

I'm trying to shoot photos of objects against a light table. When they have a hole in them, the stupid camera is adding an ugly brown spot for some reason. Can't figure out how to make it go away!

Answers :

It's likely that the light table is resulting in the camera shooting with a fast shutter speed to get the right exposure on the main part of your objects, but when there is a hole in the middle it throws a shadow that looks like a brown spot in your picture. Try using "fill flash" to have the camera put some extra light (from the flash) on the front of your object. You may have to put the camera in either A or S to have it work correctly, but don't worry, it should give the correct exposure in either. Put the camera in A or S (A will let you select the lens aperature, and the camera will select the right shutter speed to give the correct exposure; S will let you select the shutter speed and the camera will set the lens aperature to get the correct exposure). Then, use the button on the side to pop up the flash. You may have to try this with several different settings to get it to turn out well. Once you get one you like, write down what you did so you can use those settings again. You can also look at the properties of the file and see the settings. Hope this helps, and if not send back some details and I'll see if I can clarify!

I've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's

Viewfinders are very sensitive and delicate. The best and safest way to clean the viewfinder screen is not to touch\015\012it and not to use solvents on it. No matter how dirty it is it won't\015\012affect the image. If it gets dusty, use a blower to ... Digital Cameras

One with 6-8 spots and my new one with one spot. Is there a sensor that one can clean. Does anyone else have this problem
