"barrel distortion with 10-30"


US
          

I've had my V1 kit for a week now and am very impressed by the IQ. Got it with the 10-30 and 30-110 lenses. I took a picture this morning with alot of straight perpendicular lines in it and noticed pretty bad barrel distortion at the widest setting (10mm). Is there an adjustment for this anywhere? I've combed the menu and can't find anything. I know my Pentax and Canon SLRs have it. Or is there something in the software if I shoot RAW images to correct it?

The V2 adds distortion correction in-body, but the V1 does not have it.

Capture NX 2 can remove the distortion if you shoot raw.

View NX, Capture NX, Lightroom, Photoshop, DXO are some of the products out there that can correct for distortion. PTLens is an old favorite, too. Raw is best when it comes to post camera distortion correction since you have more data to work with.

Although it does not bother me too much,
I found the best solution to barrel distortion at 10mm
is to put the 10mm f/2.8 lens on instead.

Visit my Nikonians gallery.
