For the last few weeks I have had a problem with my camera, whats the problem you ask? – a nasty looking virtical line across pictures taken at night or with a dark background. I first noticed the problem in late February when I attended and snapped some shots at the 2008 Reggae film Festival and again the same night when there was a beautiful lunar eclipse.
see that ugly line to the lower right of the picture?
I am not to sure what caused or is causing the line but I hate it it! Daytime pictures or pictures with sufficient lighting aren’t affected by this feint (but ugly) line and I have learnt the hard way how fragile photography equipment can be. I am in two minds whether to send back the camera to Sony as it is still under warranty, I have printed up the necessary service documents through their website and all that is needed now is for me to send it off to them, but I am weighting the costs plus time without my camera plus what if the decide it’s not a manufacturers problem. All that has been on my mind lately so I just thought I blurt it out here. Whether I decide to send it or not I am bound to blog about it here.
The line is seen more clearly in this photo.
