    Default Help with vignetting

    I'm new to the SLR world and I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting vignetting on pictures taken on my new D40 with Canon 18-200 lens. From what I can tell it only happens while shooting in the P mode. Is it the lens or camera or a messed up combination of shutter speed, ISO, etc?



    Shutter: 1/400
    Aperture: f/7.0
    Exposure Bias: 1.0
    Exposure: Normal program
    Focal Length: 90mm
    Flash: Off
    Metering: Pattern
    ISO: 500


    Shutter: 5/2
    Aperture: f/4.6
    Exposure Bias: 1.0
    Exposure: Normal program
    Focal Length: 60mm
    Flash: Off
    Metering: Pattern
    ISO: 200


    Shutter: 2/5
    Aperture: f/3.6
    Exposure Bias: 0.0
    Exposure: Normal program
    Focal Length: 18mm
    Flash: Off
    Metering: Pattern
    ISO: 200

    That is not vignetting. Looks more like a sensor mis-alignment issue.
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    I suspect the shutter curtain. But no idea why it only appears in P mode. Better send for NSC.

    You still have many modes, other than P right?

    Well it can't be sensor misalignment either, or else it would appear in all modes.

    First time seeing such things, should send to NSC for a check up.

    Btw, vignetting is light fall off, usually at corners. It forms a circular dark ring at the edge of the frame.

    Haha, no wonder I was puzzled when you used a D40 with a canon lens.
    Yeah i think its better to send it to a service center for a check.

    Oh 40D.. Then DON'T go NSC. Go CSC.

    Seems more like shutter problem to me.
