Thank you Elm for posting your lovely photos. I am in Thailand currently on work and my other photos from this lens are in my main computer at office. Will post after a month when I return.

Why would you buy a 44mp camera to shoot 4K video?  Seems like overkill or is there an advantage I'm missing?

Dont know. Never done that before.

Agree with you Sella. Entirely, Totally. But there will be more coming here and things will keep improving.

Would they not need to manufacture whole lot of new lenses of MF?
Possibly they are buying of some MF company...

BUT one question remains a mystery: When I upload all three pictures after reducing sizes almost exactly, why does the processed photo show degradation?

You are choosing too low a value in quality at your save as jpeg step.

It is called posterization and is very common, it has nothing to do with camera settings or your other processing. Do it again but save the jpeg at over 80% quality, sometimes you even need to use 100%.

Thx for your prompt reply. :)
I saved the jpeg at 75% quality.
I have attached another photo with less processing and the problem seems to be reduced. This new photo was saved at same - 75% quality.
THX.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Banding concerns. What am I doing wrong?
« on: September 22, 2013, 12:48:05 AM »
I am attaching two versions of the same photo - untouched RAW (size reduced) and processed (size reduced).
The processed photo, on size reduction, has BAD banding in the dark areas. My processing values a (Camera Raw) are:
Contast +34, Vibrance +30, Saturation +8. Blue Saturation +24. Also brightened the eyes.
Rest are ALL untouched.
What am I doing wrong to get the banding? Hope my camera is able to handle such non severe processing??
I hope it is me and not the camera. If it is the camera, I do not know what to say.

All of these were taken with 1dx. I did not notice the horrible banding on top right of the cheetah photo until I reduced the photo to web size. I guess I over darkened the mountain? Concerned enough to start a new thread on this right away...
