With some shadow recovery tests I could not detect any banding in the shadows with my new z6 purchased a week ago. Did they (silently) fix this problem? I did see it in some raws downloaded from the imaging recourse website.

This is my first Nikon and find the image quality and dynamic range to be extremely impressive. Before this I had a Canon 6D. Definitely a step up from the 6D in terms of image quality although the 6D was also excellent.

Also find the IBIS to be very effective, in both stills and video. The video quality straight out of the camera I find also beautiful.

I think Nikon has a very nicely rounded camera in the Z6 and applaud them for it. Definitely, do not regret I did not get the A7III.


I don't think it was ever a problem . For what it's worth, here's an extreme example - No banding whatsoever for me as processed in Capture One. Prior to 2.00 I didn't notice is either.
