I read a report on photo.net of someone who seemed to have the same problem with a 1D mkII to the extent that an entire wedding shot was ruined. The techs seemed to diagnose it as a chip problem that needed to be sent for replacement.

It's caused by the multiple readout amplifiers in the sensor not being properly calibrated together, so that every eighth row of pixels has a different overall exposure level than the rest. I see a bit of this effect in underexposed ISO 1600 images on my 1D-MkII occasionally, but Neat Image seems to get rid of most of it. If the sample was pushed more than a stop, I'd say the easiest fix is to learn how to expose properly. But if that is a RAW conversion with exposure set at 0, then you'll need to have the camera sent in for sensor recalibration or replacement.

Has anyone else had this banding problem with the 1ds2?
 It shows up as very fine lines close together, sometimes vertical, sometimes horozontal. I suspect it is with polarised images but need to test this.

Seems to be a chip problem that Canon replaces. If it happens all the time then it's a trip to Canon. I've seen it happen once and not come back but that seemed to be caused by extreme cold temperature and humidity.
