I am looking at this quality issue. Can I have the original image that you input to the software for debugging? Please use the below link to drop the image. Thank you!


Same for me with Nikon Z9


Yeah i’m seeing these too. they are most prominent in darker areas. if you increase the contrast you can really see them. I’m guessing this is how the upscaler works internally.
