Paulstw Posted March 2, 2015 Share Posted March 2, 2015 Dare I open this can of worms? Not on any other forum no, in fear of there being a riot. However, I feel it warrantied here based on the maturity of the user base, experience and I know I'll get a straight answer either way. I'm a Lightroom user and like to experiment with edits. I changed my LR camera settings to 2010 and appeared the Fill Light slider. I used it and noticed a lot of lines across my images in the shadow areas. Apparently this is called banding and Canon are notorious for it. A little purturbed by it I carried on but it's been annoying me since. I went through a wee series where I was trying closely to blacken the sky in landscape B&W edits, and highlight the clouds but the files just kept falling apart, posterizing all over. I was sent a NEF file from a D810 and it was a breeze. It's since then I've been wondering you see. Is this just a Canon thing or are Sony sensors really that superior? I did touch on switching a few weeks ago to a D810 after many conversations with a user who switched but is there many else out there that did it? is the grass greener? I'm looking to slow down a bit, no more news, no more sports and just enjoy shooting again. Build my port and go back to doing better in the day job. I think that bit of advice was so damning at the time but so true. Canon are releasing the 5Ds and 5Dsr but they just seem to me like FF versions of the 20Mp 7dII sensor with the same poor dynamic range. I kind of feel they aren't really listening to the needs of many and from early previews the cameras seem a bit average. Open to ideas of course.
