I'll see if I can get to it tonight. I don't remember if it was turned on or off last time.

I'm on my second body and so far no banding what so ever. But I do remember I had active d lighting on but on all of my pictures under and over exposed there was lines even on low or high iso..

Did you send the first body back? I wonder if they took care of this with subsequent production batches

is it only when shooting at a bright light source? I have seen multiple lines in my images but only when shooting at iso 12,800. i would not like to have lines but I am unsure if it is banding or just a characteristic of that iso.

anyone?

I just went to change the active d lighting setting and it was already turned off. I did take another couple of photos, one at 6400, and one at H2.0 and the banding/blooming was generally the same as my other samples I posted before. But significantly worse at H2.0.

Sonya,

I'm curious. Would the banding be removed by standard noise reduction software? And if not, would it show up in a print?

Thanks,

Bob

The banding/blooming is still present with noiseware, even on the strongest setting. I printed (just now) both of them at 4x6 and could see the line.

I'm sure it was just as bad with my D80.....still, it's not an issue for what I shoot so even with these bands at mega ISO's it's not a problem for me at all.
