D200 Image (with problem...)

    Newer Older

    It's not art, but I stopped at the cafe on the way home; taken with 85mm f/1.4 AF-D. Note the vertical banding noise when viewing the full-res image.

      @carpeicthus -

      Yes, this was the first lens I thought to grab on my way out the door. Precious, indeed!

      @all -

      I was reading the manual before going to sleep last night, and so had the camera next to me in bed. Thus, when I fell asleep I actually spent my first night with the d200 with it on the pillow next to me, and awoke with one hand on the camera. Heh...

      This is a beautiful photo. I've been looking at it very carefully for a couple of days. I like the warm red & yellow background accentuated by the blue lights shining on the bar glasses. Nice bokeh in the background with a few specular highlights providing contrast. The blue light gleaming on the facets of the glass and fading off into darkness on the right makes this photograph something special. There is no doubt that Spincycle has an eye for composition.

      Starfish (and all), thanks for your comments! I AM quite happy with this image, in spite of the not-so-subtle flaw visible if you view the full-size image.

      Some D200's have an annoying "vertical line bug"; this image was taken with such a D200. It was replaced by another body shortly afterwards which has fewer problems - the jury is still out about the cause of this bug, but we're hoping that it is fixed soon!

      Hi spincycle. I'm in a similar situation. I also have "banding" or "striping on my camera" in shadows when shooting directly towards the sun at ISO400 or around overexposed areas. As soon as Nikon communicates on the fix, I'm sending my camera back for repair or replacement.

      Woah, check out the views! I wish my D200 had banding. ;-)

      Yeah, lots of views...this has shot to my all time most-seen photo. Not sure if that's cool, or sad!

      I have a huge backlog of shots from the last month that haven't made it on here yet, hopefully I'll manage to get some great ones up...

      This photo is the poster child for D200 banding. I haven't seen another one that even came close to exhibiting this much banding. ... However, I do like the composition.
