Shooting the Sony A9 Blindfolded and in the Dark by Patrick Murphy-Racey
Diglloyd made a banding test of the camera. The problem is the Red Channel which does show some banding:
I state here (as before) that for most color images, the pattern noise that I show is unlikely to be an issue for “ordinary” usage, since the green and blue channels blend with red in a color image (thus masking noise), plus subject color, type of lighting, and exposure also contribute substantially. The Sony A9 makes a very fine camera for what it is designed for (very high frame rate).
As stated by Jim Kasson in previous noise tests the problem is that the noise behaviour isn’t random enough. This is something Sony could work out by processing images in a slightly different way.
