Image Banding (error) ...

I started downloading images from the Alice Cooper concert, when I noticed what seemed to be another failed CF memory card.  Banding across a large quantity of my images. (70-80%)

The same thing had happened on 2 other occasions in the past.  In both situations I was able to have the memory cards replaced.  Lets face it, 64GB 1066x Lexar Pro cards, are several hundred dollars each. But the biggest issue, is that you're losing valuable images from tossing those cards.

That was until I looked further and found another common denominator.  The card READER!!  Yes, the camera bodies and cards were fine.  The trouble ended up being a seldomly-used card reader. 

That's what happens when you have a multitude of readers.  11 for the desktop, 1 for the laptop, 1 spare, etc...

Thought I'd share this information, just in case something like this ever happens to you.

To the retailer that took back my supposedly "faulty" cards.... Sorry. :(

Alice Cooper | Motley Crue - The Final Tour

August 24th 2015 - Bell Centre (Montreal)

We (the photogs) were in shock, to see the way Motley Crue's management decided to treat us, on their last representation in Montreal. We were accredited, for 1 song only, and from the back of the venue, at the soundboard, and without a riser, at the same level ground as the fans. Thanks for all the great years of coverage guys! (A-holes)

Alice Cooper was the complete opposite (and his usual self), allowing photogs to come up close and personal, in the pit, and playing to our lens for nothing less than four (4) songs.  He even allowed the use of a flash (something that is never seen in our industry).  This guy is without a doubt, the nicest guy in the industry. Confirmed by more than one person that has interviewed him in the past.

Needless to say, we've got great shots of Alice Cooper, and shitty ones with plenty of arms and cell phones in the way for images from Motley Crue, for that entire One (1) song.  You'd think they'd like to finish their career on a good note, and have media play in their hands.  Guess not!

You can find the setlist and a few pics from Alice Cooper HERE
