    Here are a couple pictures I took at a show last night. I didn't do any processing other than just an Auto-Levels:

    What the heck is that green line? It started showing up in my pictures last night.

    I use a Nikon D50. The first picture was taken with the 50mm 1.8 lens. And the second picture was taken with the Quantaray 70-300 lens.

    The line is showing up in the exact same spot for each picture.

    Has anyone seen or heard about anything like that before?

    Is that a dead pixel? Anyone?

    I wonder if the sensor got scratched.

    Maybe try a different SD card?...... if it still shows..... it's likely to be the sensor... maybe something on it..... or maybe a scratch like mark suggested.

    hat my friend is unfortunatly a problem with the sensor matrix that makes up the electrical grid of the sensor. (X-Y contacts.) That is a bad sensor, and is in all likelyhood non-repairable.

    I would send it back to Nikon to be sure.

    Yeah, it is a super-straight line, so probably not a scratch, but a matrix problem, like Soocom1 said.

    I'm just responding to this to give a big prop to Wolf Camera. I took it back to the store I bought the camera from to see if they would send it back to Nikon to have it fixed under warranty.

    Instead, they just swapped the camera for a new one.

    Props to them!
