Video thumbnail for vimeo video Issues with Moire on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera? Mosaic Engineering Has a Solution - nofilmschoolThe Blackmagic Cinema Camera is even more of a bargain now that BM has reduced the price by $1,000. 10-bit ProRes/DNxHD and RAW recording for just $2K is quite a deal all things considered, but there is still the nagging issue of occasional moire since the BMCC lacks an Optical Low Pass Filter/Anti-Aliasing Filter, or OLPF/AA filter.

Back in May it was announced that the Canon 7D anti-aliasing/moire filter from Mosaic Engineering was being released, and there were plans to make one for the other cameras as well.

Now they’ve released a similar filter for the Canon 7D, and as you can see from the video embedded below, it will work in much the same way. They are also developing a filter for the Nikon D800, which has similar moire problems as the 5D Mark II, even though I haven’t really noticed it too much in my testing. More »

Yesterday Philip Bloom dropped a bombshell on the HDSLR world, announcing that he’d found a filter that claims to fix most aliasing problems on his 5d Mark II — and that actually works. Earlier solutions have caused a loss of sharpness or didn’t work at all, whereas this $385 optical filter seems to genuinely eliminate moire on most lenses. Check it out: More »
