    Banded Image

    This image was posted on a dog forum by a fellow member who asked what had caused the banding.

    Banded Image

    I couldn't give an answer but got permission to post it here to get your ideas. At first, it looked like the banding resulted from a mowing pattern but looking more closely, that is not the reason since the banding continues for the height of the image...

    Question for your colleague:

    What camera? (EOS 5D springs to mind)
    Was he carrying any RADIO GEAR (either Camera related OR CB TWO WAY ETC in his vehicle . . .?
    Any TELECOM relay towers close by?
    And High Voltage POWER LINES close by?
    Any other source of 'Transmission', close by?

    Could almost be a shot of a painting/print - if so, and behind glass, are they reflections?

    Banding would imply straight, vertical lines which I don't see. It looks like a textured background was added to the photo.

    I would be very surprised if that was RF interference. Can I see the reflection of a camera lens about two thirds across the picture on the right hand side, or is that my imagination?

    Can't see too many dogs either?

    It occurred to me that it was NOT a photograph of a print or a painting: I thought that if it were, then Richard (or the original Photographer) would have mentioned that fact.

    Also I assumed that it (the original image of a scene) was taken with a DSLR - but that might be an erroneous assumption also - the original source could have been a film negative.

    I think we need more information and I think I have made way too many assumptions.

    I agree that RF banding is usually straight.

    Greasy sensor, maybe? Looks like a tight-aperture shot.
