Why are blue skys usually so poor?
Hi, I have noticed that in the sample photos given for most cameras on this site, a clear blue sky is often damaged with color stepping and stippling.

Is this a consequence of the jpeg compression or of the cameras CCD?

Either way, as a lot of people take landscape photos (myself included), why does the manufacturer not worry about this?

Thx, El

Hi El, its the jpg compression for the web

sasc has one possible explaination: the other likely one is your own set-up. If you have your color depth set lower than 24 bit you can see that effect.
