did you talk to the OP directly?
I read his post.
OP is going to have to provide example Photos with full EXIF data with the image, rather than what the OP "thinks" the setting is in the various modes.
Only then would we be able to get past a theoretical analysis of the problem.
Which "auto" mode are you using - Program, Aperature (auto), or Shutter (auto).
Sounds to me that the sync is wrong and the flash has flashed before the first shutter curtain has reached the bottom of the sensor. If that is in Auto, the camera has a fault.
The OP likely does not know the image as it is projected onto the image sensor is upside down relative to what is seen in the viewfinder.
With front shutter curtain flash sync being the default setting from the factory if the flash fires before the front curtain has fully opened the top of the image is black because the curtain is blocking light from reaching the bottom 1/3 of the image sensor.
I agree with john. that if the D5500 is in green AUTO mode when the problem manifests - the camera is malfunctioning and requires repair.
its the built in flash and i haven't used the lens hood.
The only way we can effectively help you is if you post a photo for us to view.
yeah its the built in flash. I tried factory settings. i speculate my camera
Thanks. i will try some photos and post later today. Shutter speed 1/60 and ISO was 100 WHEN i tired auto mode (green-dial) flash yesterday.
Thanks. I will try doing that today and will post the pictures as well.
i hope its not cameras fault but eventually it seem that it is.......
