5D4: Canon has not solved the banding problem
« on: January 06, 2019, 08:54:21 am »

Playing around with a sunset shot that I took recently to try not get a bit white splodge, I shot at 1/4000, f/8 (-2EV) and what do I find?

Down at the very bottom of the image a purple band that spans the entire image on top of a green band that spans the entire image. (processed with LR 8.1)

No this isn't intended to be a "final image", I was just playing around with settings to see what was possible with this image (likely end result is trash.)

Canít see it,
Nor can I.

Without knowing how a file has been post processed one single jpg is meaningless.

Sunset or sunrise is when the top of the sun crosses the horizon.
This is not -2EV near the big white blob. It is massively overexposed and you are probably just looking at flare.
You can possibly damage the sensor.

Ok, this is really hard to demonstrate. Harder than I imagined.

* on sRGB it isn't easy to easy but on a wide gamut monitor, it looks awful
* attachments are limited to 4MB making TIFF hard to do (but I've done so - 100% crop of the very bottom)

Don't know what's causing it but I can recommend an easy fix if you have Photoshop or similar.

Create a blank layer above set to color mode. Use a large soft clone brush and clone over the green band with colors from above. It'll retain all that purple/green/blue color variability in the peaks and valleys of the waves.
