Now that's interesting, Roy.

Jim - I love the series of pictures and didn't even notice the banding until Roy mentioned it - was there something causing it? Just curious, since there are people on another board talking about banding in shadows with high ISOs. Just wondered if there was a reason for the definite banding apparent here.

Nice series, Jim. What did you do to make him pose, did you tell him the joke about the two tomatoes who crossed the street...?

Thanks Harriet. What looks like "banding" is actually an out of focus high chain link fence around the area of the Tigers compound. The Tiger didn't have the banding because I was on a platform which allowed me to shoot over the fence. I've taken over 3,000 pictures with the K10D now and have never seen any actual banding! Jim

Thanks Kjell. The joke I did tell him bored him that's why he's yawning! :-) Jim

Hi,

Nice Shots! I played a little with one of the shots. By the way what lens did you use? I wouldn't be a Mirror lens would it. I say this because of the rings in the bokeh.

Thanks Rudy. I used a Tamron 28-300 XR Di lens. The "rings" in the bokeh are part of the high chain link fense in the background behind the tiger. That is also causing what looks like "banding". If you look closely you can see where the rings and banding stop just a short distance down from the top of the picture at the top of the out of focus fence. Jim

Thanks for the information - I haven't seen any true banding either. I have seen noise in shaded areas at 1600 (experimented a bit), but I wouldn't call it true banding. I don't do much really low light/high speed stuff (in other words, I don't feel a need to use 1600 often) and so was just wondering.
