Safe Area and Vignetting

Hi all,

Im not sure whether this has been asked before but from my brief look through the pages, it has not.

My question is regarding the safe area (I have set my Z7 to 90%) and vignetting. I have a 3rd party wide angle lens that vignettes slightly when mounted. I can just see it inside the corners of the safe frame. My question is "whether the rest of the vignetting outside the safe frame (but still within the physical edges of the LCD monitor) will be visible when played out through a DVD or during editing?

I cant have access to my editing machines right now and would appreciate any views on this.

Thank you very much.

Double check and make sure your nd filter knob is not between numbers. Got to turn it until it clicks or you will get what you are describing. Just a guess on my part.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for the info but its definitely not caused by the ND filters. The wide angle lens just protrudes too much in front that it enters the frame thus the vignetting effect.

Cheers

Well, if you're shooting in HD and producing a standard definition DVD, you can always crop the image a bit in post, without suffering any loss in resolution.
