Quick fix: Is the backlight stripe noise really a major problem?
14

There are a lot noise/discussion about the stripe banding from the A7III for areas with strong back light. Some even say this is an issue that will make many to stay away from buying this camera.

So much talk. Why don't anybody do something with the problem, was my thought. So I decided to do something myself this morning. I downloaded one of the affected sample pictures from the Dpreview A7III gallery, and did a very easy quick fix with Photoshop. This took me just a few seconds to do.

The final judgement: Do you find the fix acceptable, and the result useable?

Left: The original, a 100% crop from the Dpreview sample gallery. Right: A fix that takes a few seconds to do with Photoshop. What do you think about the result? Good enough?
