Nikon D3s - Uneven Exposures

Hello :

Am slightly stomped with this issue -

While shooting a 18% Kodak Grey Card ( was trying to calibrate my Light Meter to the D3s's Sensor at Base ISO ) using my Nikon D3s, the Test seems to reveal un-evenness in the results.

Attached please find the Test Result.

This was shot using 2 Strobes on either side of the Grey Card with the camera on a Tripod. The Strobes were set to an approx 45 Degress Angle with no obstruction in the light's path to have caused this issue.

Image shot at X-Sync Speed at f/13.0 using a Nikon 85mm F/1.8 D lens.

I get a similar result when using the 50mm F/1.8 D lens as well.

Any thoughts why the exposure is uneven and that too only on one side ??

Remain worried : (


ps : This question has been cross-posted on another Forum as well.
