  • HELP! anyone had a "glitch" like this ?

    One of my holiday shots ...



    It is a Coconut Tree full of fruit ... I think there must have been a power drop at some point ? Anyone ever had this ?

      If you paid full price for that holiday I'd complain with the travel agency.

        Because of the "smeared" color band in the middle, I'd guess it's a write-to-card problem. I've seen non-camera software do this (Painter Classic used to do this almost daily). Or as ardvorlich says, a flash sync problem, though I'd not expect the smearing to occur if the synch was out of whack, just the black band.

          It could be a shutter curtain problem - the curtains move vertically on a horizontal shot - hence side to side on a portrait shot - did any other shots do this - was the battery running down any other strange symptoms

              I would add that I can "view" the tiny RAW tile as complete - but as soon as I click on the shot it changes to this !

              ps I have added an exif jpeg nw (and delted the other)

                This is exactly like the images I got just before my Digilux 2 sensor went kaput (replaced under warranty even though 4 years old) but if you can read the RAW tile OK then it's not that. Is it just on this image or some others?

                  Just this one image David, of 2,000 taken in two weeks on holidays ! I am fearing it was a "power surge" when I downloaded it ... I should check the card (if I have not done a format yet ...)

                    Re: anyone had a "glitch" like this ?

                    Well the 'RAW' tile is actually a tiny embedded jpg image in the file.

                    Could be a corruption on reading the file, might just possibly be a bug in the raw converter used. I suppose if you managed to power off the camera while it was writing from the buffer to the card this might happen.

                    But my guess would be a card fault.

                    Sorry

                      If in any doubt, providing I have downloaded all the relevant images I would always format the card. In fact I never "erase all" in camera I always re-format.

                        OK

                        Chevvy sent me the ORF file and I was able to read it into Aperture and see the whole image - I then exported a PSD version and sent it back to Chevvy

                          So does this tell us why it happened ?

                            I can see the full EXIF data in Aperture. I think that there was a data combination in the file that could not be handled in the program that Chevvy was using yet it can be handled in Aperture.

                            I was also able to convert it into a DNG file using Adobe Digital Negative Converter program.

                            So I think that it is not a problem in the file but a deficiency in Chevvy's program.

                              It looks like a card write failure to me. That is the sort of thing that can happen with emailed photos sometimes (on the horizontal) if half the data is lost.
