Hey guys i think i'm getting some vignetting issues on the corners of my camera
is it due to my camera or filter?

I'm using the D90 kit lens with a Hoya UV(0) Filter

look at the four corners below


Now facing a white wall with a filter


Now facing a white wall with no filter


Thanks!

Well, vignetting is dependent on lens design too... In your case it's pretty bad. I think you have a thick UV filter? Either shoot wihtout the filter, or get a thin, low-profile filter.

Agreed with RASHkae
Wide open like 10 - 12mm wide angle lens you will need to have a low profile Filter lens.

HOYA PRO1 Digital Series - Key Features

Digital Multi-Coated
Digital multi-coated filters greatly reduce the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections.

Low Profile Frame
Ultra thin filter frames to help avoid vignetting on super wide angle lenses are also designed to hold a lens cap.

UV Protected Case
Filter cases are UV protected to further lengthen the life of filters.

So ask for Pro-1 Low profile type from HOYA or better get B+W (Germany quality).

I wouldnt worry about that.
It can easily be fixed through post processing.
If it worries you to much don't use a filter.

hmm could it be a lens natural vignette?

i seem to only get the vignetting on only some conditions (leaving it at 18mm).. which i can't replicate
Maybe darker condtitions?

There are 2 types of vignetting which can occur :-

1. Lens Vignetting
In general, at the largest apeture size, vignetting is most likely to occur. Solution is to use a smaller aperture, e.g. f/4 vs f/1.4 or f/2.8.

In addition, for zoom lenses, vignetting is more likely to occur at the wide angles.

2. Mechanical Vignetting
This can occur especially if you use a standard sized filter for a wide angled lens.

Solution is to use the SLIM type of filter. Costs more but is worth it in the long run.

Alternatively, you could ignore the above and just use post processing in Photoshop/Ligthroom to remove the vignetting effect. The drawback of this method is that the exposure of your photograph is increased, which can be a bad thing in certain situations where you are trying to prevent overexposure.
