Picture with black line at bootom, any clue?

Hi all,
Started taking some pictures today and a black line is showing at the bottom. I have no clue where this black line is originating. I switched lenses and the line still shows. I guess the line is either from my lighting or my camera going bad.

I use a Nikon D80 with a 50mm and 80-200mm lenses. Do I see a new camera under my Christmas tree? Any thought will be appreciated.

Please downsize the picture so that we can see it. You do not need the full res for questions.

Where was the camera when the picture was taken? It would be really tough to get that line from incorrect lighting. Try a photo of a light colored wall, nothing else and post it.

Please size it smaller.

Have you inspected the inside of the camera to see if there is a foreign object inside?

Tried to download your image to inspect it closely and could not.

My good friends at Huron Camera in Dexter (734-426-4095) had me slow down my shutter speed from 200, and that corrected my problem!

Thanks Brian for checking this thread. Pictures are need for last minute family stocking stuffers.

Yes, this problem results from a shutter speed that is higher than your flash can sync to.

Terry, just between you and I, this is your fault.
I saw you shoot models with you 70-200mm, so I had to try mine. So I set the shutter speed to 200. I guess my old D80 can't sync above 160.

It's not your D80, it's your flash. Smile
My cameras would do the same thing if I went above 200. It's a common issue with flash photography no matter which camera/lens you're using.

When I want to go higher than 200 I use continuous lighting (Westcott Spiderlite TD5s). Otherwise I'm going to see the same black bar you did.

Terry,
You are one great educator!

Detroit Public Schools should let you be in charge, and then pay you the $400,000 a year they pay the top guy.

Now why would you want to punish Terry like that? What's he ever done to you?<g>
