D800e will Moire be a problem underwater?
Posted 19 March 2012 - 05:34 AM
My question is this. While most most landscape photographers do not seem concerned about moire on the new D800e. What about us UW photographers? We shoot in a natural environment but many times there are repeating patterns. Fish scales, corals ect... Will we see more of a problem?
There are many pros shooting topside with cameras that have no AA filter, almost none of these cameras make it UW. There are very few housed medium format cameras. It is very different to shoot landscapes topside with no repeating patterns or fashion topside with a lot of man made repeating patterns.
I just wanted to know what more experienced people think? Do we have enough repeating patterns to have a moire problem?
I am a Canon shooter but the D800e is very interesting. I will wait to see all the tests or samples.

No moire in the corners of domes then . But seriously I don't think that this is the case or all underwater images would look soft.....
I think that the water column and the port glass will also help against moire (they "blur" the image).

Well, pictures above water donīt look soft and most of them are taken with AA "blurring" filters...Just think of any UW picture taken from a little too long distance where detail is always lost etc... In any case, I agree with you on the non-moire side. Looking forward to see a review...
