How to remove shadows on dslr sony a5100

2 months 1 week ago #686470 by luizcrf
Hello everyone!Two weeks ago I bought a Sony a5100 with 16-50 lenses (Model SELP1650), but when I started filming I noticed shadows around the image.I researched forums about the problem, and saw that it could be an effect called 'vignette'.I shoot with the setting 1/80 F5.6 and ISO around 400 to 600 (with 3 lamps of 60w in a room of 3 meters by 3 meters)and I was recommended to set the camera to 1/60 F11 and a higher ISO (around 2000)I put this setting, but with the ISO increased, the image is very saturated.Is there any other solution to remove these shadows?The camera is very good, and the focus is fast, but this problem with "shadows" (or "vignettes") is putting an end to my filming.The image below is part of a shot on a white wallConfigurations: 1/80 F5.6 and ISO around 400 to 600 (with 3 60w lamps in a 3 meter by 3 meter room)

If you are indeed referring to the shadows on the edge of the image itself and not the subject, then yes that is vignetting. This is a lens issue and not a camera issue. One other probable cause of a vignette is a filter on the lens or an improper lens hood. If you have a filter or lens hood on the front, remove them and see if that helps. If shooting RAW and not jpg, make sure you have checked that the lens profile is applied before you begin the rest of your processing. If it's a native Sony lens the correction will be known and applied. There is a setting in most reputable photo processing software packages that corrects vignetting with a slider. Hope this helps. If you have more questions, feel free to ask.

The OP mentioned video, and I don't think lens correction profiles are available for video editors. Best to use an appropriate lens?

The example image doesn't tell use what focal length was used, but I think it's a problem with the lens/body combination.
