I was shooting the ceiling in my bedroom, which has a florescent light. When I take pictures of the textured ceiling, I get this strange yellow gradation across the photograph. It looks like someone put a graduated filter on the lens, one part is normal color, and the rest is this dark yellow tint.

I can take pictures around the room and some of them will look almost normal, but then that yellow coloration shows up at the bottom of the frame.

This only happens with sRAW.

Also, I tried playing around with the different white balance presets, which only helped for the portions of the image for which the yellow coloration was not affecting in the first place.

I took photos in the kitchen where there is another florescent light, and it does not show the yellow coloration with sRAW.

Has anyone experienced this?

It's not a huge deal, but a little annoying. I finally took the time to setup all my banks, and I created one for casual use, which is the one affected.

Update: So far it appears the issue only occurs with sRAW & ISO 800+

Again, adjusting white balance, kelvin temperature does not appear to affect the yellow part of the image. I can take a pic of anything in this particular room, and that yellow shows up in the pic.


I do not know why is it happening just with sRAW files. When you are shooting at fluorescent light at shutter speed faster than 1/60 sec, weird things happen. Fluorescent light fluctuating with frequency of AC and with faster SS it is a lottery at what stage of fluctuation picture will be taken
