Ok people I need your advice/knowledge '5dmII sensor problem?'

I have started to notice when I zoom in at 300% some strange artifacts on my images, I was told that this is due to the sensor deterioration by another photog.
It is some sort of criss/cross lines on the image, anyone have any experience with this issue and how to resolve it?

You have been misinformed by a plank.

What do you want to see at 300%?

Thanks for the response KeithWink
It was something that caught my eye and so I inquired, I was afraid that this would ruin some images when I print large. I tried a HDR last night and it had serious banding throughout the image which in turn had me considering what he had said about the damaged sensor.

Look at your image on screen at 50% and that is pretty much how it will look in print. HDR can throw up some weird and rubbish stuff anyway.

Hey Bren , you have some amazing images in your PF. As Keith said 50% is easily enough to view at , however i have two 5Dmk2s and they do not show any banding at 300% of any sort, is it on all photos ? have you viewed an image on someone elses monitor ?

Was your ISO set very high?

HDR very often shows banding and noise

As Keithh says, 50% i fine for judging sharpness and I only even go to something like 200% when doing very fine selections.
Printing is far more forgiving of noise and artefacts than viewing on-screen - what seems unacceptable on screen can be fantastic on print (I gather this is something to do with the way the ink spreads on the paper).

PMSL....Grin

LOL, Thanks Keith, I needed cheering up today, Just love them one liners that say it all......Smile

Add my own tanners worth, Why in the sane world would anyone want to peruse images at 300%, Jeeez! Why not get a microscope, Just in case there is a sub atomic particle lurking on the sensor......Grin

Who so ever gave you that advise is to be avoided like the proverbial.Wink
