    How to Stop Vignetting

    So I was shooting today in the first bright sunny day we have had in awhile here in Utah and I noticed some vignetting really bad on some of the shots. Is it inherent with the lens I am using? ( Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS ) If not..how do I stop it?

    vignetting on a 55-250? I thought it was an issue mostly for ultrawides and wide...

    someone familiar with this range of lenses will surely deliver an answer

    Have a guess :)

    It's fairly common with many lenses when shooting wide open and/or with filters attached.

    Easiest solutions are to stop down a bit or just correct it in post-processing (most packages have controls to do it almost automatically).

    Hope this helps

    Thx. I will try a stop lower tomorrow and see if that helps. I did have it all the way open and zoomed all the way out.
