Who cares about moire?
Oct 21, 2013

Looking at the past year's camera introductions, you would think moire is the biggest photographic problem facing mankind.

X-Trans seems to have been designed primarily to show that Fujifilm could devise something Kodak didn't (Bayer sensor) and secondarily to reduce moire.

Nikon and (later) Sony introduced models that come with either AA filter to reduce moire, or without to increase resolution.

Pentax devises a whole new way of shaking the sensor to reduce or eliminate moire without an AA filter.

Maybe pro photographers care about moire, but judging by the extremely poor color accuracy we see in product catalogs and on the web, I would have to question how pro the pros really are.

Otherwise it seems camera vendors are solving a non-problem.
