"OH NO!"



I was out yesterday just kind of relaxing after spending a good month getting stocked up on my waterdrops for my special little gallery viewing and of course had my camera with me. Well, I took a couple of scenery shots and right after I snapped the shutter, I looked at the lcd display and my photo had two brown lines down over the picture. It looked actually like an upside down v. It wasn't solid brown, but almost like a graduate filter look. So it went from the outside of the upside down v darker brown to lighter on the inside of the v. I wish I could clarify that better, but don't know how to. It did that with about every other shot. It lasted while I was looking at the picture, then of course you know how the display goes off, and then when I would press the button to make the picture come back up, it wouldn't be there. So it's not being embedded in the photograph. What could that possibly be. At first I thought it was a reflection from maybe the trees through my windshield but that wasn't it. I even tried to "lock" my photography to see if it would stay on the picture, but it didn't. Freaking out here..Any opinions?

This will sound dumb, but were you wearing sunglasses when you glanced at the picture in the rear LCD screen? I noticed that some sunglasses make it look as if strange lines are running through the image.

Presumably polarized sunglasses, adversely interacting with the LCD.

You know what guys, that could quite possibly be. Come to think of it, my regular sunglasses are at my eye doctors getting retinted, so I am wearing a cheap pair of those clip on glasses over my regular glasses. I'm feeling much better thinking that possibly we are on the right track..thanks guys.....

I think that, like the other responses, it's your glasses. I was looking at the LCD on my D7000 and thought, I screwed up the sensor when I cleaned it. I was getting an upside down V line through the image. I finally looked at it without the glasses, everything was fine. Just another moment of terror in digital photography.
I usually try to get non-polarized lenses with sunglasses, but some places, like Costco, don't offer them. Be aware!

If there's no photo, it didn't happen.
