Hello
I am new to this forum and very new to learning photography. Will someone please tell me why some of my photos do this? It is starting to happen quite often. I am using a Nikon D3400 with a new sd card. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Try and use another SD card and see if it does the same thing.?

Okay, I will try to pick one up tomorrow before my sons soccer tournament. Is there a specific one you recommend? I am currently using a SanDisk ultra plus v10 32mb. Thanks for reply...

Agree with a new SD card

I would make sure the new card is formatted in the camera and after downloading your images to your computer reformat the card in the CAMERA to delete the images.

Looks like flash with the shutter speed set to fast, at night or in a darker environment you'd only get the upper half of the shot.

Yes, new card. It isn't writing all the data.

I believe it is the card. I wasn’t using the cameras flash. Getting ready to transfer pictures now. I will update later, thanks for the continued input.

I can't see how that could possibly be the SD card. If the card was failing, the missing data would be randomly located: Sometimes lighting, sometimes color, etc. --- AND almost always render the image unreadable.


Is the line between the light & dark always in the same spot? If so, I'd say it's a problem with the sensor.
