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.

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).

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

.HAVEN'T USED 10D FOR A LONG LONG TIME AND


Here are a few things to try:


1. Remove the main battery and the small backup battery (CR2025) from the battery compartment. Charge your main battery and put both batteries back in once your main battery has been charged. Sitting without batteries will give the camera a chance to reset itself.

2. You may have a bad CF card. Try starting your camera without a CF card or use another.

3. Try reloading the firmware (camera's operating system) using this link Canon. http://web.canon.jp/imaging/EOS10D/10D_firmware-e.html
Be careful to follow instructions exactly as restarting the camera in the middle of a firmware update will brick it and you will need to send it back to Canon for repair.

Hope that helps,
Bax

Pictures will not transfer to computer


The best way to download pictures to a computer is through an optional card reader then there is no problem with the computer not recognizing the camera or downloading the pictures. Using a card reader you would remove the Compact Flash card from your 10D and insert it into the card reader the computer would then recognize it as an external drive. Do not format the memory card in the computer always format in the camera. If you must use the camera as the reader make sure you have plenty of battery power in the camera to do the transfer then turn it off. Have the computer on and connect the USB cable to the computer and the mini USB to the camera. Turn on the camera and the computer depending on you operating system will ether place the camera memory card as a drive on the desk top or you may have to go into your system preferences. Most newer systems the HD icon will appear on the desk top. Which ever system you use make sure you click on the icon when you are finished downloading the images and "eject" the memory card, failing to do this will cause problems with lost files or corrupt the memory card.

I have a canon 10D that is getting an "error 99".


You could've used a non-compatible lens or the contacts are dirty. Turn the camera off then use a clean micro fiber cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

Horizontal Lines after-photo.


Hi, I don't know if this is going to be your problem, but recently the Canon anounced a recall for Canon S1 IS, due CCD problems. Most people with this problem complains of lines on the image, or the image going completely black. Some are having their CCD changed, but most of the users are having their S1 replaced for a brand new S3. Contact the Canon Technical Support, and maybe you get a S3 for free...

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).
