D80 problem
Nov 12, 2012

A number of the pictures I took at dusk yesterday with my 5 year old D80 have this strange vertical banding. I know this isn't a very good picture but it illustrates the problem quite well. Oddly there's another version of this picture that doesn't display the problem, the only difference being that that was taken at 1/80 and this at 1/60.

Does anyone have any suggestions for what this is? Googling suggests a loose connection or water ingress. I can't see how it could be the latter as it didn't get wet yesterday and only about 3 of the pictures towards the end of the hour I was out are affected. When I got home I couldn't reproduce the problem so could it be some bizarre one off or, as I suspect, is the camera on its last legs?
