View Full Version : SONY W1 Wide Angle Lens BIG Shadow Problem... Did Sony Test IT?

12-02-2004, 09:20 PM
I just purchased the Sony Wide Angle Lens (VCL-DH0730) for my W1. Every picture i take "With Flash" gives me a big dark shadow in the bottom center of the picture. Zooming in helps a little but the shadow is still there. It works fine "With NO Falsh" but the pictures are darker.

I think the Lens is too large for the W1, the flash boucnes of the top lip of the lens and causes the shadow. But why dose Sony sell it as a W1 Accessory? Did sony never test it?

I have attached 2 pictures:
>One with the shadow caused by the wide angle lens.
>Another with the shadow caused by the wide angle lens and a coin sitting on the lens (proving the lens causes the shadow)...

Has anyone else had this Problem???? I dont know what else to do. I Even used the red-eye feature... Still get The DARK SHADOW...
