    I need a Photography Expert to Tell Me what this is............

    without going to much into it, I have a old Kodak Digital that's about 15 years old and I've taken thousands of pictures with it without a single problem until last week and I took 14 pictures of this location I'm interested in and 4 of the pictures came out with Strange Anomalies, so I'm just going to post one picture here. In this picture of a hillside, you need to focus your attention to the top of the hill and along the Ridge - Skyline that is mixed in with trees and bushes, you may need to enlarge the pic and/or zoom in on it. For a lack of a better description, I just call these the "Alphabet Pic's" of which apparently shows ...P's.....M's....and maybe a few numbers like 3's.......Just for your information, I am computer Illiterate and wouldn't have any idea on how to manipulate any photo....If my camera screwed up, okay I can understand that, but it has never done this before or afterwards, I know I'm asking for logical explanation that may not have one.....Thanks, DarrellClick image for larger version.

    Well, you were able to post a pic, so I don't think you're as illiterate as you state.

    I see a poorly taken pic.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I consistently fail Rorchach tests so I wouldn't dare venture a guess.

    Pixelated. Google pixelated photos pretty sure that is what happened. It could have been because of lighting or it just couldn't get a focus so when you took the pic it was in between focusing. Sometimes when I take a picture of something in the distance the camera focuses on something close and the thing in the distance is out of focus or pixelated.

    Also cameras will take photos like this when they are in movement (shaky) that's why my wife takes most of our pictures because I shake a lot.

    It's called camera shake. You took this image at 1/8s and hand held. How do I know? Because the pattern is repeated throughout - top to bottom.

    I used to be able to shoot consistently clear images with a 300mm lens handheld until about the age of 60. Now, I can get similar results with a "nifty fifty" (50mm) lens if I try to shoot at anything slower than 1/60s.

    The camera shake can be caused by excitement or age, but the biggest culprit is the slow shutter speed. If you're out in the back country, you might consider purchasing a simple monopod. While not as stable as a tripod, takes much less space in your pack, is much lighter, and gives you a mount that will at least stop the vertical shake.

    If you get a well made monopod, it can be used as a walking stick in an emergency . . . like when my old motorcycle injuries flare up while out on a shoot.
