Colour banding on 10D images

Hello I've recently started using a Canon 10D and have noticed that the detail has been lost in many of my pictures - some areas of the image become pixelated, lack detail and form bands of single colour. The camera settings are standard, as far as i know, & I'm shooting on jpg at the highest quality setting. Any ideas what might be causing this? It's especially noticable with areas of little detail i.e. blue skies - rather than a gradual colour change, the image forms noticable colour bands. I've attached an example. Thanks for your help.

Re: Colour banding on 10D images

Are you using a cheap LCD monitor? Some cheap LCD monitors cannot display more than 6 bits per channel (3 x 6 = 18 bit colour, 2^18 = 262,144 colours). If you use such an LCD monitor for viewing photos, you have a great chance of seeing banding in certain areas such as the sky. Try looking at the same photo using different monitors (better LCD that can display 8 bits per channel or a CRT monitor).

Re: Colour banding on 10D images

Shoot in RAW mode and convert to 16 bit images to reduce banding

High shutter speed causes band of over exposed image


I would suggest to check the lens inside. there might be some kind of small item inserted inside.
check if this happens with no zoom and full zoom.
if the problem persists, I would suggest to first have it checked with another lens just to make sure it's a lens matter.
Then decide if you need to send it back or buy a new lens.

My 10d won't focus


At 700 images/week for 52 weeks, you're just about at the point where the shutter could fail pretty soon. I don't think that would affect AF though, and AF doesn't "wear out" with use (other than experiencing the random failures that all electronics do).
