Re: ...

Firstly, thank you all for you posts, both negative and positive, they're all useful - I ask that people please attack solely the issue at hand with an open, critical, inquiring mind rather than each other - it won't help anyone, least of all me

Following on, HPT was used - and I've heard it causes issues (after the shoot in question, sadly) but again, it's a £3k camera, in 2012, and a feature that is in NO WAY marketed as a BETA offering . It's a fully endorsed, featured, and promoted feature of this model. I'd hate to find out that it's basically a gimmick designed to fill ad-space rather than aid photographers. But I accept it might be ca*p also. (won't help me much with a lost days shooting however). Other culprits perhaps?

(much of my other work on is done with a 5D Classic - artistic merit and cr*p high compression ready-for-web JPEGS aside - it's always been perfectly fine, with huge post production changes, if required, as noise is fine and removable - banding not!)

thanks all
