Transparent image taken with FZ200
Nov 25, 2012

Took this picture of the duck in jpg with my FZ200 and notice the top head of the duck had gone transparent.

Don't know how it happened and the picture had not been doctored in any way.

Anyone had an explanation for it

Wow I've never seen that before. Did you take a single shot or burst mode? Maybe during the processing it somehow overlapped 2 images or something.

Wow that's the craziest thing I've ever seen (well, at least coming out of a camera).  Would love to hear somebody explain this......

Brilliant illustration of quantum entanglement! As photons are reflected from the object they pass through various quantum phases before they hit the sensor surface and are thus recorded.  The physics behind this phenomenon were first explored in 1935 as a result of an article by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen. Perhaps you have heard of  its more common name, Schrödinger's Paraducks.

Holy Cow!!!! Schrödinger's Paraducks, that explains everything!!! Thanks Sunny for this!

(Sorry Nick, not trying to make light of your situation... it is bizarre for sure).

Panasonic needs to come up with a software fix for this...shredding parachute(?)...and quickly! (I wonder if Leica has already addressed the issue?)

In spite of its short duration,1/400 second, the exposure was long enough for the duck to turn it's head to a second position before the shutter closed. That resulted in an effective double exposure  as can be seen in the full size image in which is clear that the dark grey oval below and to the left of the eye is also an image of its eye.

No one has mentioned this yet, but something similar is happening with the duck in the background at top. Most of the beak is transparent, sort of a solarized look.

Short of quantum entanglement or a side effect from the LHC, or dark matter bending light, I'd say it has something to do with movement of the duck. The camera cannot invent blades of grass behind the head it can't see. Also there's a fainter eye below the eye suggesting head movement.

O.K. I'm officially impressed J C.

I bet that it was applied one of the multi-shot regimes (e.g. HDR or Hand Held Night). Then the FZ200 processed those three shots into one which turned out to be that special! Of course the duck did move during these serie and that was the reason of the final strangeness

All the best,

Thanks Florida.

Although we may not always be able to explain it there is always a rational explanation.

When shooting wildlife it is desirable wherever possible to use the highest possible shutter speed which is consistent with an aperture which will give the desired depth of field.

Did you do that from memory or were you somehow able to extract that from somewhere. I'm particularly interest if you can get the Panasonic specific settings which wouldn't be in the EXIF data.

The info was extracted from "PHOTOfunSTUDIO 8.3PE" software that came with the camera.
