New owner of the RP but not sure of this camera because of the horrible banding.
I'm a night photograhper so all my images are pretty much dark but properly exposed.
I'm getting banding without even pushing the shadows or the night sky, and when I do push them the image is becomes usless.
Will there be a firmware fix for this like the one the EOS R received?

We can't see what you are seeing. Some images of this "banding" might be helpful. Not saying the community can solve your problem, but at least we'll see what you are describing.

Don't know much about it so this may not apply, but I have read that the way focus pixels are embedded in mirror-less sensors can cause banding in some situations.

This is RAW. I only raised it 3 stops to show it easier. It starts to show up at less then 1 stop raised aswell. Also shows up really well in foggy night pics without any editing and correctly exposed.
Either way even compared to my 77D i've never seen anything like this with any of my pictures or same presets.
I guess the RP can't handle what the 77D can do.

Should I be looking at the night shot of the house? Using a cell phone I do not see any banding.
Links are discouraged, with some exceptions. Did you know that you can post images in the forum? [We took care of it!]

I have the same issues when doing sunrises and sunsets. Spoke to someone last evening whose experience is testing various cameras from various manufacturers. He told me about the banding issue on the rp before I asked about it. I guess the sensor is not the best in canons line and cannot be corrected with firmware. Wish I knew that before I bought the camera but I still really like it otherwise. I remove the banding as best as I can in photoshop
