Colour gradation in blue skies
1

Hi, I'm not sure I'm posting this question in the right forum. But I think it specifically relates to my equipment.

I often find non-smooth colour gradation in the sky in my landscape shots. What I mean is, there is no smooth transition from one colour to the next. It is kind of in steps or bands of colour. This makes it difficult to edit the photo, as those colour transitions become more and more visible when I apply contrast, sharpening or filters to the image.

Is this a limitation of the M43 sensor or Panasonic cameras or lower MPixel count? Or is there a way to avoid this in post-processing? Interestingly I find my friend's Sony RX100 doesn't seem to suffer as much from this problem.

Thanks.
