Is my DBK21AU618 Okay? new
      #5560384 - 12/08/12 03:33 AM Attachment (52 downloads)

Bought recently from a gentleman as a like new unit. I've not had any chance to try it until this evening I gave it a test run.

The picture is a screen capture with the camera in live mode but no scope or lens connected. I had the cap on the sensor but intentionally let some light leak through. As you can see, there is a line which concerns me. Is this normal?

That doesn't look too bad.

Thanks for the relief, everyon! As a hardcore visual observer, I'm indeed a newbie when it comes to the imaging gears.

The vertical line I believe is a result of imaging source fixing the bayer pattern issue on the earlier dfk21 618 cams. I'm not sure whether it will be a problem for stacked images. Its doubtful but I know some people were freaked out by the line and returned their cams.
