I have been in Kenya shooting some properties and staff portraits for 2 weeks. Everything has been working as normal until yesterday when I imported my photos from the day and discovered some major color banding. In playback mode right after taking the pictures, I did not see this problem. It was only when I imported them to my MacBook Pro and into Lightroom classic that I saw the issue. I haven’t dropped my camera or caused any damage that I know of - I did get caught in a little rain yesterday but in my experience the Pentax has been previously unaffected by a little water. Please tell me my SD card got scratched or something? I do see some scratched on the gold part. I am using a sandisk 256gb card and have a 2TB sandisk hard drive.
Please someone tell me that this is not a broken camera sensor and rather a problem with the SD card reader or card itself!
