Hi guys
I'm having a very strange problem with my sony a7.
Shooting with canon fd 24mm and nd filter in landscape mode I get a strange dark bar on the left of the picture. If I shoot in portrait mode everything is fine...
Without nd filter is all good...
I changed lens from 24mm to 35mm canon fd and have the same issue with the nd filter on...
If I rotate the filter the bar is always on the left... I can even see it in the preview.
Do you know what it could be?

Sounds like something is obstructing the image.

The sensor is wider than it is tall (and the image is a circle) so if something blocks the left side in landscape, if you rotate it to the left in portrait it might no longer be blocking the image that hits the sensor.


It's weird... I guess the issue is with the nd filter... Without it everything is fine...
Please check my pics on
