Only works when the horizon's flat and your lens has a flat front element (or is a Nikon 14-24L, which has a dedicated Lee filter holder for extra-large filters).

So the best solution is to demand better DR from Canon or switch brands.

Well there you have it, you've found your own solution, so why not do that and quit complaining about a camera that you don't even own and nobody is forcing you to buy?

Oh right, so you're talking about a VERY specific set of circumstances that 99% of photographers won't encounter?

Why are you telling me to do something that I am already doing? I am switching to Nikon, but that doesn't stop me from correcting other people when they are wrong. :)

Don't make me laugh.

It seems that you are kinda new to photography, aren't you?

*Very* specific?

Most horizons I've come across aren't flat.

You've pointed out that the MIII has banding, that's all you need to do. We know, now we can decide on our own whether we feel it's an issue, and decide whether to buy a MIII regardless of it, or to buy another camera. People are not "wrong" if they feel it's not an issue for them and their photography.

Give the guy a break. Perhaps he lives on a very tiny and flat island in the middle of nowhere. :lol:

One of the examples that you posted had a flat horizon.

Which one? Out of the ones I posted as examples of situations where pattern noise could not be eliminated by filters or multiple exposures (rather than examples of other things), one was a vineyard shot, the other a shot of a sailing boat.

The vineyard shot had rows of vines coming up on each side, so the 'horizon' was definitely not flat. The boat shot had a a flat transition between sky and sea, but a big boat sticking out in the middle of it - definitely not a linear transition zone.

I'm sorry, where am I defending the camera? I haven't, so please read before commenting.

I'm merely suggesting that there's no point in complaining about a particular camera when there's many others to choose from. Nobody is forcing you to buy any one camera, just choose the one that's right for you.

Wow, just wow. I sometimes wonder why I bother with online forums. Over here on the Canon forum you have people thinking that banding on the 5D MIII is the end of their world, whilst over on the Nikon forum moire patterns on the D800E are the end of theirs. No camera is perfect, each one has their pros and cons, and you as a photographer should know how to work around those.

The whole idea by having an AA filter is to avoid moire. So by implication - people buying a camera without AA filter does it because they do care more about resolution than moire. Or because they didn't think in the first place.

Well, tell that to them. People just seem to love complaining, as proven in here.

You even suggest the obvious solution of buying a different camera, and they complain at that as well, it's really quite amusing.
