Calling fellow F11 users who don't have the vertical lines / banding problem.

I have sent my F11 in to Fuji Singapore for repair. In order to help them make a case to Fuji Japan, they request samples of F11 photos that DO NOT HAVE the banding problem at ISO1600 & ISO800, with dark / shadow scenes.

For F11 users who do not have the banding problem, I need your help. Can you please post or send me FULL-SIZED images (NOT CROPPED) of night / dark scenes at ISO1600 or 800?

I will send these in to Fuji as proof that NOT ALL F11s have the banding problem.

Once again, if your F11 does not have the banding problem, please send me:
1. Full-sized images (do not crop)
2. Dark or night scenes at ISO1600 or ISO800

Please post them online (I will check this thread), or email them to me personally at f11problem@mailbox.dnsalias.com

If I'm not wrong, most will have some banding to varying degrees. Why not look for F10 users? My cousin has an F10 with absolutely no banding at ISO 1600. I think the problem with the F11 could be the new NR algorithm used, but I'm not sure.

To make a case, just show 2 similar photos at ISO 1600, one taken by F10, one by F11. Will it work? ... Just a suggestion :)

I've found one source. The F11 review photos at this website show no banding whatsoever, even at ISO1600.

Check out the following shots at ISO1600 and ISO800.

Don't you wish all our F11s produced photos that were that clean? Lets see if we can get Fuji to do something about it. With the F30 being launched, I fear they may just forget about the F11 users.

P.S. Some of the F10 units also have the banding problem. See this thread:

Thanks, a shot like that will be perfect, but it needs to be not resized (email me the full sized picture at f11problem@mailbox.dnsalias.com please).
