"Bad Shots???"


Lafayette, US
          

Does anybody know what happened here? It is one of about 6-8 photos out of over 700 taken on the same morning. This is the first time I have experienced shots like this. In Lightroom, the metadata shows it to have been shot at a speed of 1/1000 sec and ISO of 100. The F stop and mm numbers are blank. This was one of two in a row. The shots before and after of the same bird are fine?

Was your MODE dial knocked into Manual?

I was shooting in manual. I had the speed set to 1/1000 (except when my thumb moves it GURRRR) and aperture at F/11. ISO was Auto.

Probably a lens/body contacts issue? Reason I say that is f-stop and mm are blank, so seems like a clue.

I would give both a cleaning. I would also dismount and mount the lens anytime you see this.

Thanks Steve, Yes, I am sure that is it. I was caring the camera and hand using it. The lens is heavy and it could have twisted sightly in use.
