Re: Banding on long exposures: lens or camera?

Nice photo.

The 20/1.7 can produce banding, particularly. Anders has found out if one tries to AF the lens for a few seconds before executing the shot the banding may be avoided.

Banding like that may be tamed with a NR app like Dfine (I don't know if other NR apps as of late also have a banding correction feature).

Live Time/Bulb modes can tend to be a little noisier than the standard long exposure, but that's a different matter.
