Was max referring to video?..
That is his thing after all
Yes, he was seeing it in quick pans while doing video. But the sensor readout time that causes that to happen in video is the same thing that causes banding under pulsing lights like LED's. So, while I'm happy to hear that it's been "reduced", the big question for me will be whether it's been reduced enough to make shooting silent under LED's viable.
One thing gives me hope. In Jason Lanier's hands-on video, he's speaking with a Sony rep, and asks the rep what are the big differences between the A9 and A7Rii, aside from resolution. The rep specifically brings up silent shooting under "pulsing lights". As if that's not a problem anymore.
But one would assume that if that's caused by the same thing that causes rolling shutter jello in video, and that has only been reduced, not eliminated... you'd think there would still also be banding under LED's. But the bands might simply be larger.
BUT... if this rep is correct, and there's somehow still jello in quick pans in video, yet no banding in stills under LED's, I'm frickin sold. Silent shooting (at whatever frame rate) would be hugely useful to me, whereas now I'm only able to take advantage of it safely in specific circumstances
