German term or phrase: Vignettierungen Vignettierungseffekte
. In beiden Fällen ist die Verzeichnung jedoch nicht zu stark ausgeprägt, so dass sie bei Motiven aus dem Alltag wohl kaum auffallen wird. Vignettierungen sind nicht erkennbar.

Vignettierungseffekte sind nur in absoluter Weitwinkelstellung ganz minimal zu erkennen und dürften in der Praxis nicht stören.

vignetting or vignetting effects
Explanation:
vignetting (unwanted) is the darkening of the picture corners caused by using a poorly coordinated lens, camera construction and image area combination. In your case, with the short focal length operation (wide angle), the lens is a little too close to the image area, which reduces the amount of light that reaches the corners of the image area.

vignetting (desirable, especially for portraits) is accomplished by adding a more-or-less sharp edged ring at the end of the lens to purposely darken the corners and sides of the photo, emphasizing the person's face. The same effect (either lighter or darker vignetting) can also be added later when the prints are made.
