Just wanna run something by youse all to see if anyone else has this issue!
When I take photos in a dark environment, obviously I use the flash (cos I'm clever like that)
However, there always seems to be a large amount of flash bleed...
Now the bleed is always on the left or top as that is the location of the flash in relation to the lense.
You might have noticed that the flash is recessed from the surface slightly
I think that because the lense is covered by a layer of clear polycarbonate, about 0.5mm thick, and the flash is recessed by about 0.5mm, the light from the flash is hitting the side of the clear layer of polycarbonate causing it to retain some of the light from the flash, in the image.
I know that's a mouthful so here are some pictures I just took to illustrate what I mean.
Does anyone else have the same issue?
I don't know if there is a collar that could be make to shield the clear walls surrounding the flash to ensure the light does not penetrate the polycarbonate.
Seems a touch fiddly to me!
