    I heard about those banding issue, but if you look at the pictures I linked a few posts above, you'll see there's no such banding effect. As I wrote, the only problem is when the sun reflects on the borders of the barrel's aperture or is in the field of vue. Mostly you have to keep the sun on your back or have it hidden behind a building or tree...

    Hi all - here is a 202 picture where there is definite banding (seen clearly in the sky), after taking this, I took the camera apart cleaned and oiled it thoroughly - and hey presto no more banding.

    The Horizon is a russian camera. There is very little to no consistency from one camera to the next. Yours works great, the next guy/gal's will not. That is why some call it the russian roulette of camera buying.
