Re: Banding on MKIII and Some New User Questions


Oops, I see what you are talking about.  Forget the cards, not the problem.  The sensor is dying.  That is exactly the way my 1D MkIII looked before it died, except on mine the banding/striping was vertical, not horizontal.  I sent it in to Canon, they wanted to replace the entire sensor assembly at a cost of $2K.  Good used 1D MkIII's sell on eBay for $1200.  I used the Canon loyalty program and (reluctantly) got a 5D MkIII for about $2300 in exchange for the 1D MkIII.

Nothing beats the 1D MkIII for pixel-level image sharpness.  Your is dead, sorry, send it back.
