Re: Settings to reduce banding; are DPReview samples immune?

While trying the different settings I downloaded samples from DPReview and Imaging Resource and one thing I really don't understand is that I cannot see any banding whatsoever at any ISO, even when pushed 5 stops. (????)

Maybe the deep shadows info is lost at JPG conversion, and you can't recover banding by pushing the JPG. Or did you push their NEFs? Banding will not be noticeable if there are no deep shadows in the scene.

One particular case of banding was with a certain mFT camera and certain lens, maybe due to lens AF motor interference. You could try turning AF off or using an old lens with no electronics.
