OLPF for BMPCC or Hollywood Black Pro Mist against moire?As many of you will have noticed, our little precious is prone to moire, not only in raw. I have gone a long way to overcome all problems with this beast, but moire makes me sick to a point where I just want to sell the whole bundle and just stick to my G6. However, the more I compare my most felicitous test shots to what I knew before, I know I would regret it forever. It's time to address the issue. When I bought the Pocket, I reckoned the Sigma 18-35 with the Metabones BMPCC Speedbooster could substitute all my MFT lenses, and I sold them all (now only own the 14-42mm G6 kit lens). So there is little to compare with, mainly apertures. At open aperture, moire becomes so rare, it ceases to be an issue for me. But: As was proven to me >here, the Speedbooster in this combination results in a DoF of an f1.8 in APS-C. As soon as I want a deeper field by closing the aperture two stops, the image obviously gets too sharp for the sensor, thereby introducing moire. The concept of an OLPF (used i.e. with Canons 5D) seemed like a possible solution. But how? Apparently Mosaic Engineering is developing a special filter for the BMCC. Has anyone heard about efforts to create one for the Pocket? The theory behind this says that moire is a sign for reduced resolution and that if you cut off high frequencies at the right values, you optimize the resolution, even though the image looks a little softer. Some say the native resolution of the Pocket is near 1920 minus 15% (for bayerfiltering or sth.l.t.). With the right lenses (not too sharp ones) or with, well, actually a moderate soft-focus-filter (?) it should be possible to get rid of the annoyance once and for all. Is this correct? The very same topic in BlackMagicForum resulted in recommendations for ProMist filters, here. I used to own one myself, for weddings, but since I never actually bothered to use it, I sold it. Has anyone tried to use such a filter against moire?
