D3/D700 banding is real, but only after big user mistake...(with samples)

D3/D700 banding is real, but only if you underexpose 2 stops while shooting over iso 3200 with strong highlights in the image and while you want to recover that image in postprocessing..., which is not a realistic scenario and a big "user mistake".... Upto that - and with any camera - correct exposure is one of the basics to get good pics...

I was reading about this as well when I had my D3(as Toa.design mentioned) and I did test it today with my D700. The issue is still there but only if you underexpose strong.

As most cameras have already have serious issues when you underexpose @ iso 200-400, a little imperfection after you made a mistake @ + iso 3200 is really a non-issue...

Underneath a sample

The image @ iso 6400 @ 0. EV, straight out of the camera, really outstanding iso 6400 IQ TMHO...

The image underexposed by 2 stops

The underexposed iso 6400 image recovered in NX2. Here you can clearly see banding.

I prefer one really good picture in a day over 10 bad ones in a second...
