I have had my Canon Rebel for about 6 months and really like it....well most of the time.

Can anyone tell me why on certain shots (see atached) 2 light streaks appear

I took a number of shots of cows to use as a backdrop for a Dairy poster. On viewing the photos this morning some had these light streaks and others did not. All photos were taken at the same location.

This has happened once before, same deal, some had it and others didn't.

The cow shots were taken on automatic, when it happened before I used the RAW setting.

I would really appreciate an answer to this mysterious problem.

Thanks
Maria

All that I can think of is that there is something on your sensor. Or maybe something on the lens? But if it only occurs in certain shots I am not sure. On the shots that it did not appear, was the background dark or something where you wouldn't notice the imperfections? I also have a rebel and have never had this problem, but maybe there is something wrong with the camera? Not quite sure.

Does this happen regardless of what lens is used, have you tried a different lens. It could be a lens issue as the image looks repetitive, a bit like lense flare.

Just an idea.

Thank you for your replies.

Yes I have tried different lenses and different settings, all to no avail..however it does NOT happen with indoor shots only outdoor shots.

I have contacted Canon and send them the same shot, so far I have not heard as yet.

One of the shots I have corrected in Photoshop but I certainly don't want to spend my time doing that with every shot.

Cheers

I'm no expert, so I'm just throwing out guesses. Could this be a light leak of some kind? If it only happens outdoors, maybe the bright light from overhead is coming in? Was the shot done with a tripod? In the manual, it says that if you don't cover the eyepiece when using a remote trigger that light can leak in. Just guessing, though, it could be a defect in the camera. I've been using a Rebel for about 2 years, and I've never seen anything like this, even though I've probably done everything wrong that can be done wrong.


Good luck in solving the problem.

As I mentioned in the other forum you posted this in, it looks like your shutter is failing.
