Guys,
need your help. i have shot a few of the same shots and now noticed that there's a green dark shadow.

these test shot are at H1 ISO and all with the same settings.

I would probably guess its time to service the camera body or change the shutter mechanism. Your thoughts?

No problems at all.. It's just the cycling of the lights.

A very common phenomenon.

yogestee: some of the photos taken has really ugly green banding as if the floor is lighted with a green gel. :(

Assuming it's fluorescent lighting, that is what yogestee has said: cycling of the lights.

Florescent lighting. It isn't the floor that's green. It's just coincidentally that the green band is over the bit of floor in your picture. :p

Decrease shutter speed until it's lower than the cycling rate and it should disappear (I think).

Was your main light Florescent lights ? if so they cycle at a certain rate and you need a shutter speed to compensate for the lights or shoot RAW and fix in post .

At this time I cant remember the shutter speed that will help

Edit : or use your flash to overpower the Florescent lights .

Thanks guys. i ran some further tests and found the following results

the shots are mostly on H1 ISO setting and that will 'attract' the recycling of lights effect, well it kinda made me realized that "thats why its called ISO sensitivity" :o

anyhow thanks for the pointers. really appreciated it! Cheers!

It'll only happen with fluorescent lights

I work in fluorescent lighting all the time and if you shoot at 1/15, 1/30/ 1/60 and 1/125 you will avoid the frequency cycles but no higher than 1/125 but at even shutter speeds of 1/8, 1/15, 1/30 and 1/125 you should be OK.

What caused you to tell him that? As others have pointed out, it's caused by the recycling of flourescent lighting.

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

Yes. If you're in North America, that is, where the power line frequency is 60 Hertz.

Elsewhere it's probably 50 Hz, and the speeds would be 1/100, 1/50, 1/25.
