E-3 High ISO banding - recommendation
Sep 13, 2010

I took a nite photo workshop in Maine this weekend for star shooting. The recommended manner by the instructor was to use fast glass, 2.0 preferably or lower, wide angle and shoot at 3200 ISO. While acknowledging in advance that this would create some noise that would need to be removed in post processing I was concerned with the 4/3 format and it's historical noise at higher ISO levels.

I cut back on the ISO to 2500 on several of these but still got significant banding. Is this just something the E-3 cannot handle (and hopefully the E-5 will?) or are there any C&C recommendations.
