In D200 banding II spin cycle started the thread with a very clear example.
Opinions seem to vary between the link in reply 59 (it does not affect 197 out of 200 shots so why worry) through "it's a sin" to "I have not got it"

Can those who definitely have it do an extra test please and post feedback.

Page 197 of the instructions refer to blooming resulting in vertical white lines with very high contrast - and avoiding the problem by reducing the light which falls on the sensor either by using a smaller aperture or (not 100% convenient) by using an ND filter.

This implies part of the blooming issue depends on the intensity of light falling on and reflected by the sensor.

Test 1
Can those who can generate banding with high contrast subjects (like the example in post 1 of Banding II) repeat the tests and see if it goes away either with a very small aperture or with an ND.

Also can Spincycle confirm whether the replacement D200 is free from banding.

Test 2
Can those who get the effect with more "normal" light see if the effect goes away when using the smallest aperture or an ND.

If the "stop down fix" works for banding it is a starting point for moving forward.

***

A suggestion for the volunteers who run the Nikonians site:-

As far as I know there is no facility for a poll.
Occasionally (perhaps with a moderator specific approval) there is a need for a poll - if a facility can be made available.

What I expect most of us want to know is the percentages of D200 owners who get banding in "normal" light, only get it in high contrast light, or cannot get it at all.

Nikonians IMO would be a good a place as any to do this
poll due to the significant number of D200 owners visiting the site.

If we knew what the percentages are we could perhaps move forward.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.
