Banding may appear when shooting high-speed sync with low flash power at a fast shutter speed. In high-speed sync shooting, the flash continuously emits small bursts of light to create near-flat lighting with minute light-dark pulsations (ripples). When the shutter moves at a fast speed, the ripples and shutter exposure can synchronize, which then appear as bands on the screen. If this occurs, try the following:
Notes: Depending on the model, some functions may not be available.
- Reduce the shutter speed.
- On a camera that allows you to adjust the setting for the electronic front curtain shutter, select Off.
- On a camera that allows you to set the Shutter Type, select Mechanical Shut.
