Hello all, this is my first post in this forum, hope it can be useful to better understand the "banding" phenomenon that affects the Z6.

I have just bought a Z6 and I am testing it just to understand wheter banding is there and can be a true problem for me.

Banding is actually there, but only in very specific situation, at least in my experience. I noticed that it is almost always there when I shoot at 100ISO a close subject in good light surrounded by a more or less dark and almost completely blurred background due to limited depth of field (for example, shooting a close subject at wide aperture; in my case, 50s at 1.8). In these cases, the dark stripes are almost always there every time I try to push a bit the shadows, it is not necessary at all to push them much.

Post an image with exif.
