After extensive testing, I have determined that it is NOT the D200's CCD sensor that is causing the banding effect. In fact, I believe that Nikon included the banding as a feature to help validate image alignment, after the fact, with such things as walls and floor lamps. I think that somewhere in a deep deep menu selection there must be a Custom Setting to turn this on and off. I dreamed, last night, that it was Custom Setting a4. I haven't validated it yet though.

As clear proof that the banding is not caused by the D200's sensor, please examine my test shot below. I took this shot with my D2x, of a D200. If you look closely you will find that merely taking a picture OF a D200 introduces a banding effect into the image. It is very faint, but visible under 3000% magnification (as below). I think they do the banding effect by some new form of Magnetic Induction Wi-Fi or something. What do you think?


(Now SMILE, people!)
