Nikon D200 Banding: Official Acknowledgement
Nikon just acknowledged the banding issue of the newly released dSRL Nikon D200, but pleaded not guilty nevertheless. The official response has been expected for months, with various speculations on how will Nikon fix the problem (click on the picture to see banding). According to Nikon US website, the vertical strips can be adjusted, but can not be eliminated. In other words, D200 buyers will live with the banding issue for the life of the thing they paid $1600 for.
