HI EVERYONE, I HAVE AN E510 DIGITAL SLR THAT HAS A SHADOW AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LENS EVERYTIME I USE MY FLASH. THE SHADOW COMES UP IN ALMOST AN ARCH AND TAKES UP SOMETIMES HALF THE PICTURE. I CANT FIGURE OUT WHATS CAUSING THIS.
IF ANYONE HAS ANY ANSWERS IT WOULD REALLY BE APPRECIATED.
THANKS
DREAMWORKS:confused:

Lens too long and obstructing the flash? Screenshot?

Take off your lens hood when you use the flash.

If you are using the 14-42mm lens that came with the camera, this shouldn't happen except a little bit at the bottom at certain focal lengths. If you are using a larger lens or have the hood on, there is nothing you can do, except use a smaller lens, remove the hood, or get a larger flash like the FL36R.
