    I purchase a D90 in November, which I do love. However, a couple of days ago the pictures I have taken in two different basketball gyms have had problems. the exposure seems to look different on different areas of the photo. (Like from a pickish cast to a greenish cast) It seems to go from bottom to top or top to bottom, even a strip in the middle of the pictures. I have taken pictures in these gyms before and they were fine. The lens is the Nikon 70-200 2.8. I put the lens on a different Camera and the pictures were fine. WB was set to floresant. I stepped outside changed settings for outdoor and the pictures were fine again. Any ideas?

    Sounds like something might have become "stuck" in the software. Can you post a couple of examples?

    Sounds like a white balance issue....

    Next time ur at the gym put the camera on live view and use the K setting on white balance..... then scroll through the temperature until you have a reasonable match.. then turn off live view and shoot ...

    if ur shooting raw you can also adjust the temp slider in post processing

    That was what I thought until I got to the "Stripe down the middle" bit..

    OK it sounds like data corruption to me at first. But it could be a bad sensor. First waht SD card are you using and, do you have a spare? I would try a second card and, see if you can repeat the error on that card first. Also try using close to the same lighting if possible.

    What ISO? Colour accuracy goes out the window at really high ISO settings.
