If I'm in Photoshop at like 200-300% and I were to take a screenshot then I would get lines like that.

You might have an issue as well then. I just tried this. I loaded up one of my 7D shots and zoomed all the way to 500% and there are no lines. After 500% the screen switches modes and displays the pixel boxes, but no lines in the image.

OP, sounds like your plan is a good one. It is not normal.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

That's banding. That's a defect. Interesting theory on the devil. I think you're saying you'd rather have them fix that and find everything else which may be wrong, in which case you are one full inspection ahead of a return for another one.

I was referring to the pixel boxes. Its become readily apparent that's not what it is though. For some reason the lines looked like pixel columns to me. I think I've only been zoomed in that far once so my recollection of what they looked like wasn't accurate.

Julian...tried killing the ALO and HTP...no joy.

TGrundvig...had that issue once with my 50D, and putting everything back to "plain vanilla" was alright, as long as I wanted to shoot with all focus points and in "green box". The CF card came directly from my 50D to try the "new" 7D, and the pictures that were on the card from the 50D don't show the aberration.

BTW...I grew up in Arapahoe County, Colorado...where are you?

Regards, folks!
Don

Did that already...formatted the cards twice, too...

I'll just plan to give it up to the tech folks at Canon...

What a long, strange trip it's been...

Left Colorado for the Navy in '61, spent 4 years in the South China Seas, went to Florida upon discharge 'cause it was freezing in Colorado, came north to finish an education and stayed. Been here since '74, it's fine. Each time I go "home", I get depressed, looking at all the tract homes and plastic ski chalets everywhere. I used to chase pronghorn near Parker...now they're all gone...just like the water table.

Cheers!
Don

I'd say she deserves a nice night out for this one. :)

Wifes are wise!:D

Mine said last night, rent the EF 70-200 IS MkII and if you think it's worth it over your 18-200 BUY IT!

You might as well buy the 7-2/ii than waste money on renting it. :lol:

That said, I have a feeling she's hoping you'd say the same the next time she's at the jewelry store. You better be prepared to tell her, "Well, if you think that 4-carat diamond is worth it over the one on the engagement ring, BUY IT!"

I've always known that she's much wiser than me.
I think she views me as an unfinished project...

It's in a totally different class. There is a reason it costs 4x as much.

Hopefully you are going to hang on to your 18-200...or get a high quality standard zoom.
