That's only an issue when using adapted glass. With native glass, hybrid AF the contrast detect portion of the AF system doesn't get tripped up straight lines.

I've played with it a bit more, definitely doing better with the AF system this morning.

I have LED lights throughout my house, and unfortunately this means I cannot use silent shutter in my own house. It bands terribly with my lighting.

I have read that dimmable LED's do horrible with silent shutter, I have a cheap variety for my work room due to weird size, and they band horribly. The rest, I use home depot LED's, I forget which brand. Interesting, they still band on my R2, but on R3, no banding. My mom's house is the same, all LED's and Flourescent for the kitchen, no banding on the R3, but banding on the R2.

I read on DPreview by one of the engineers like Kasson that it could be that newer LED's are optimized to prevent light flicker/epilepsy prevention, and those less likely to cause banding.

Shooting at certain shutter speeds like 30/60/125 will also reduce banding if not eliminate, however some bulbs are at different frequency and still cause banding. 99% of my shooting has been silent since I bought the camera, even landscapes. I did baby portraits with full mechanical, wasnt sure about bokeh effects and didnt want to risk it.

I’m not sure this is correct, I’m sure I tested it with a native lens. I drew a horizontal line on a bit of paper and a vertical line on another and pinned them both up. The camera could only lock on one of them. I would have to recheck though to be sure as it was a while ago

I use top max for my Fuji x100f and I use Ravpower for my Sony. Both have been great

Awesome all.

I'll give the RavPower a go. £26 delivered on Amazon for two batteries and the in car/USB charger sounds like a plan.

Are you saying you are Marissa Jasso and you wrote the article? I’m confused.

No, sorry folks for misleading , my apologies, to clarify it was the first time for me knowing that Flickr even highlighted a specific photographer
Were any of you aware Flickr did this..
I agree Eddie some great safari shots

Yeah LED and CFL's usually flicker at some multiple or divisible of the frequency of the AC current in your country. In the US, we have a frequency of 60hz....so 30, 60, 125 will minimize banding.

I like the 'story' aspect of this shot David.
