This is just an hypothesis, but I notice that in the picture with the "problem" that the spectra of the lights in question seem very narrow. It looks like the lights are hydrogen vapor (bluish lights) and sodium vapor (yellowish ones), whereas the lights without the problem appear to have broad spectrums. It could just be that your lens has problems with ...


There is no "Normal" lens flare. Lens flare, however, is normal. It does appear to be flare caused by internal reflections between the lens surfaces and the camera sensor daughter board on the main circuit board. That's my guess based on the following tiny details in the two images you linked to in your reply to Caleb. There are 6 points in both of the ...


Fog, mist, moisture, particles in the air? In Alaska sometimes in the winter we get ice fog ( small frozen water particles in the air ). This results in being able to see a ray of light shooting through the air. you can see shafts of light shooting up all over town even if you can not see the light source. Normally one can not see light on air molecules ...

I recently bought some that sells for the "kitchen" and they cost arround $1 dolar. I use theese for cleaning all the time cellphones, glasses and tablets. There is a chance that ...

You show "solitary" lamp housings and "triple-headed" ones that appear as you expected. Looking at the reflections of the "solitary" lamps on ...


can anyone give me something concrete? We can't tell you anything definitive because we can only guess at what you're seeing. Please post an example. The way to tell whether it's lens flare or not is to take a series of photos and see how the effect in question changes as you move the camera relative to the bright light sources in the scene. In other ...
