    Speaking of D70. I saw someone opening a new D70 box at funan centre food function this afternoon. Wondering if he is a clubsnapper.

    Hi, were you using the internal flash as you shot? If so, likelyhood (pun not intended) is that the flash caused the shadow on the pic. Btw, it's the 18-70 lens hood, all the lenses that comes with hood have their own hood.. D70 doesn't use a hood

    Hey thanks, next time I will show you and ask for your opinion. I didnt use my flash. I was surprise to see that there are dark edges when I took a shot with the kit lens at evening time( w/o flash)

    Yeah and the webcam got built in BR (Blurness Reduction), 10x much better than Canon IS or Nikon VR.

    Hi Hosea,

    I think your hood is not on properly - it sounds like it is a little too far forward, it should not be loose. When you put it on, it should click firmly in place. Because you are not putting the hood on properly, it is blocking the corners of your image.

    I've taken photos with the hood on at 18mm and don't see any dark corners.

    Another thing with the kit lens is, if you shoot at 18mm and have the aperture wide open (ie f3.5) there is some light fall off around the corners.

    Well,another reason could be the stacking of filters. Some newbies will stack their polariser on top of the UV then when using the wide angle, there may be some slight vignetting (Dark Shade around the photos)

    Hi Gooseberry,
    Take a look at this shot , see the 4 corners with dark shade.
    I didnt use the hood on that evening and hand-held.Will check the setting later.
    When I use the hood, it did click firm on the cam but it is easily drop just with a slide jerk.

    Do tell me whether you guys experience the same thing , especially evening shot.

    Quekky, I will check the setting and let you know when back home

    Light fall off. The light from the wides doesn't reach the sensor in time.
