D7100 moire, is this corrected at all in camera?
I'm just trying to clue myself up on the D7100 and the removal of the Optical Low Pass Filter. I work in camera retail and whatever information I get will help me in the future.
From what I understand the removal of this filter increases the possibility of moire but with the increase of sharpness. To add to that I've read that with the right technique this can increase shapness even more in some situations.
That's as far as my knowledge goes. What I'm interested in knowing is wether any of this moire is processed/ corrected in camera?
I have read that with the D800E there is software correction available in Capture NX2.
I've found no record of any correction in camera and have always assumed it was done in software processing. Someone queried it with me today.
Any information will be a great help!
I don't believe moire is corrected in camera.
I haven't noticed any moire in my shots. I don't think it is a significant issue.
Adobe lightroom has moire removal in the brush tool.
Moire is more likely with cameras with a low number of MP. Camera makers used a low pass filter to reduce the chance of moire with the trade off of a bit less sensor resolution.
With higher MP cameras the risk of moire is much reduced, and post process moire removal tools are now more common.
The D7100 does not have a low pass filter to help prevent moire but even so because it has twice as many MP as 12 MP you are much less likely to get an image with a moire problem.
A great painter gets credit for artistic skill rather than owning marvellous brushes. There is a common assumption a great photograph requires a marvellous camera. Usually the photographer and not the camera deserves most of the credit.
Whatever CNX2 does to D800E should be applicable to D7100 too.
One can probably find moire if looking hard enough, but a sharp lens is required. Limited lens resolution effectively replaces the AA filter.
From what I understand the removal of this filter increases the possibility of moire but with the increase of sharpness.
once in a great while, it's possible to find moiré in a given D7100 image, but it's rare, and really has to be looked for at 100%, under very particular circumstances. I've owned the camera since the day it was released, and have NEVER wished for a moiré removal tool, under any circumstances. It's really a non-issue.
