    D750 Light Leak videos

    D750 Light Leak videos
    Since a few days there are videos showing a "problem" with the D750. I read some other people have taken some D750 cameras back for issues with light on the top right, tried some D750 cameras and found some without the issue. It seems an exaggeration to me, people want to find issues with the latest (cameras) to show off they found it and thus deserve attention. (which I'm sadly giving here) Anybody here that believes there is an issue, somebody who experienced it?

    Now I'm using exposure preview; could it maybe be possible the dude had it enabled and light simply leaked in through his viewfinder?

    The manual advises to cover it when shooting ex-preview on the LCD to avoid just that.

    Considering the vids disappeared and we never heard of it again, I'd say he realized it too.

    I think your picture above clearly shows it is very well possible to shoot straight into the sun.

    This guy seems to have understood exactly what happens:

    If you can reproduce it easily, you can avoid it easily as well.
    Still seems smart to check lifeview or the picture if you are not just in the case of the "reflection".

    P.S.: just came across it looking for reviews

    I had the cam next to me and have been waving it 10 minutes directly pointing at a light, every possible angle, wide lens. I wouldn't know what I could do to make light leak in easier but alas, besides the occasional lens flare, no plane of brightness.

    Guess what, I could replicate it. If I use the live-view and move the cam below the light here, I get the plane of "light leak".

    If I put my hand above the front of my lens, it disappears. I guess his 25 years of being a photographer didn't make him understand that if light hits the lens wrong, it causes all kinds of problems.

    I'm not even touching the cam or blocking it, I use my hand as an extended lens hood and the light leak is gone.


    Some more testing. I put the cam on a pod and moved it forward below the light using the same slight upward angle until I get the exact same "problem" they have. It's constantly there. The moment I change the lens from 18mm to 24mm, it is gone. Picky light leak. Just one finger above the front of the lens, and it's gone again.

    Rather amusing.

    Anyone with a D750 and light leak problem, my right finger is for hire at a very reasonable price.
