As you may know one of the things considered most problematic about Nikon’s new D800 HDSLR is that it has moiré and anti-aliasing problems and it’s a sure thing we don’t want our HDSLR footage degraded by good old line skipping anymore.
EOSHD has been in contact with David Cubanski from Mosaic engineering and they are already working on a filter that can fix these issues for good.
Mosaic Engineering has started to heal our HDSLRs last August when they introduced the VAF-5DS for the 5D mark II. A filter that can be inserted into the HDSLR and reroutes light directly to the necessary sensor pixels to avoid moiré and aliasing. Using the filter will temporarily disable the stills features of your DSLR but it can be removed at any time.
So there’s hope for your Nikon D800 (order at B&H) to beat the Canon 5D mark III after all.
Mosaic Engineering says their D800 filter will be ready for testing in a week. It is unclear what that means in terms of a timeframe for a production model.
