Yesterday I remembered that it was the last day of the month so I made sure that my last couple of photos make a good piece of evidence of my lens trouble.
This is something that has been happening more and more often. Have a look at my penultimate and last July photo:
By the end of this post you’ll be as frustrated as I am. Recently my camera (Nikon D5000) keeps producing white blotches together with the error warning and instruction to release the shutter button again, which sometimes works and my next photo is good, but at other times doesn’t and the whiteness continues.
Here are some further examples of the times when it worked, all from heavenly Piran on the Slovenian coast where I’ve been staying in my parents’ home the last two months. Included please find a chandelier made of sparkling wine bottles, my father’s idea. All the photos have only been cropped, straightened and resized, with no other editing.
There is no photo studio here in Piran, so I can’t show it to an expert. Can it be a result of my fall when I fell on top of my camera hard but with no visible damage? At first I thought it was happening because my battery was low, since once recharged the issue got better but not for long. It is mightily frustrating. This Tamron lens (18-200) is not even one year old (but its papers are back in Tuscany). If you have any thought on it, I’m all ears.
Bushboy’s Last on the Card rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st July.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do.
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments.
