    is it just me or is there quite a bit of distortion?

    I was using a wide angle lens, so I guess, there will be distortion?

So recently I decided to try back to basic photography, after I got my hands on a 2nd hand Nikon FM 2, and as I prefer landscape pics, I also got a wide angle lens.

    I had read up on photography, and had a rough idea about exposure, aperture and composition. So, I decided to experiment on my recent trip to Taiwan. But when I developed my very first roll of negatives, I found that, while some of my exposures were okay, some of them ended up with a dark ring around the pic. something like the one below.



    You can see the dark ring round the pic, even though I try to crop them out. Otherwise the proportions looked a bit funny.

    And I have no idea what happened! I mean, you dun get this kind of problem with my digital camera

    Sure, I can crop it out everytime I get this, but I want to know what I did wrong, so that I can take note of it the next time I shoot. Please excuse my very ametuerish attempts.

    Thanks a lot.
    I used a 58mm wide angle lens (third party) with my second cam (Fuji S5000), which I had to use a 55mm to 58mm converter to use the wide angle lens, no problem for this. The shop I bought the wide angle lens advised me to buy 58mm instead of 55mm was it would be 'better'. First time using wide angle, I had no experience so I just took it.

    When I bought my third cam (Fuji S9500), it had 58mm thread lens. Using the 58mm wide angle lens produces similar results when used without zooming. Maybe it would be eliminated if I used a 62mm wide angle lens.

    The point is, maybe you can eliminate the circles either by using original wide angle lens or by using a bigger wide angle lens.

    Hope this helps.
