I've encountered an unusual problem on two D810 bodies now. Luckily, the shop I bought my first body from last week agreed to replace it, but when I used the replacement body tonight I had the same problem (please see the image below). Has anyone else had this happen? It certainly doesn't look to be normal to me, and I've never seen a noise issue like this. This image was opened in Photoshop and saved to jpeg with no other processing. I'd be grateful of your opinions on what it might be - or have I just been unlucky?
It also looks like the outdoor lighting (halogen I assume) might also be causing what appears to be banding. Does this only happen at venues like the one photographed here? I only ask because I know that those types of lights can do nasty things to shots at some shutter speeds.
It would be nice if Fuji still made the S series DSLR's, like a S6, S7, S8, etc to use as a control to prove that Nikon is messing something up.
on both my monitors .
I would try different raw converters .. Could you post a raw file and we can have a go at converting it?
Being a photographer is a lot like being a Christian: Some people look at you funny but do not see the amazing beauty all around them - heartyfisher.
The only way to determine this would be to shoot images at different shutter speeds under the same light conditions and see what happens.
A trial holding the camera vertically and panning horizontally may be interesting. Also, setting up the same EV under tungsten lights and doing the same motions would rule out the metal halide lights being a part of the problem.
For those interested, here's a link to a NEF file from the second body that shows the problem more clearly: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kez4uw5pgrslyo3/_DSC1720.NEF?dl=0
And, I doubt this is the lighting now that I have seen it "in the raw"....no pun intended...LOL
