Unintentional Pop Art

Nikon D70 @ 70mm, 1/60 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200

"What the hell???"

That's what I thought when I saw this on my lcd screen. This effect was not achieved by post processing. Something went very badly wrong when I took this shot. I got very worried, and almost couldn't bring myself to try the camera again, but thankfully it was fine. So I haven't a clue what happened.

But I'll tell you what - it's definitely a more interesting picture that it would have looked had the camera worked normally! :)

Quite an interesting result. I find it unbelievable that this wasn't achieved in post. Has a very Warhol look.

I recommend you to remove those spam entries. That will increase their page rank in google and increase the traffic for their sites.

Your result looks to me similar to what happens when a 32 bit graphics driver on the PC breaks. It then defaults to 16 bits and throws out all information that was in the remaining 16 bits. Did the camera have any temporary problems around the time you took the picture? For a PC a reboot is necessary to get back to noraml, so I'd expect that you would have had to reset the camera one way or another.

Congrats on your result in the last fujimugs, that was a picture made to be noticed...

Any news yet on how this happened? They say some of the best shots happen by accident. ;)

Hey Mathias. Thanks for the explanation - the only one I've heard so far (inc. over at dpreview). The camera was working fine, produced this shot, and then continued working as normal. I took it out again today and everything's working perfectly.

And the annoying spam entries have been deleted! Thanks for the info on them.

Hey Owen - only Mathias's explanation so far. Everyone else just seems to like the 70s look :)

Hi John, I do enjoy seeing your photos - As for this one... I've seen the same effect on my D70 - only once in 7K pics... others have also reported it on DPreview. (camera bug) - still happens on V2 firmware.
