Were you shooting the full sun? With a zoom lens?

If so, be very careful for both your eye sight and your camera. That is like putting a magnify glass to your eye and looking at the sun. This not only can blind you but damage your camera.

Does the camera have the same fringing in NON sun photos?

Burned highlights are burned highlights, whether it's the Sun or a studio setup with an overexposed flash tube.

If it were me, I'd send the camera back to Nikon with that kind of sensor artifact.

P.S. viewing directly into the Sun through a camera lens can be dangerous, but most of us are doing that at sunrise or sunset, where the luminance is lower due to airmass, humidity, and smog filtering. It's a good thing to be aware of though. There are ways to shoot the sun through big teles or telescopes at high angles, but they all involve heavy filters and eye protection, and that's important.

Your Exif info for the image:


Exposure Time = 1/2000"
F Number = F5.6
Exposure Program = Aperture priority
ISO Speed Ratings = 200
Date Time Original = 2006-05-23 19:15:46
Date Time Digitized = 2006-05-23 19:15:46
Focal Length = 300mm

From the time of day and the aperture, it looks very over exposed by forcing the aperture to F 5.6.

What does your histogram look like?

If it is a vertical line at the right side, you are overexposed.

I would have used "Auto" or set the aperture to F 22.

Hi,

What RAW converter did you use?

The D70 is known for blooming with shots like this due the "electronic shutter" that is used for higher shutter speeds. Over 1/250th from memory.

Cheers
Peter

both: PS CS2 and Nikon's one give the same results

what does it change ?
is it new "buit in" feature from Nikon for such value of money ?
