New and improved Canon 7D raw video with the Mosaic Engineering VAF-7D anti-aliasing filter

http://vimeo.com/88826657

In my opinion the Canon 7D is currently the best budget solution for shooting raw video. There’s plenty of used bodies going for $750 on eBay here – and that is practically a steal for 14bit raw video from a Super 35mm sized sensor… Stills camera is a mere bonus!

So to the big question – does the Mosaic Engineering VAF-7D filter completely cure the 7D’s raw video of moire and aliasing?

D800 and Mosaic Engineer anti-aliasing filter

Good news for Nikon D800 owners. Mosaic Engineering are currently working on anti-aliasing filter for the camera. Because the sensor line-skips to produce HD video, the custom-designed optical low pass filter should almost eliminate any moire and aliasing on the D800 if it works as well as it did on the Canon 5D Mark II.

Canon 5D Mark II – Mosaic Engineering VAF-5D2 anti-aliasing filter review

A great many have forgotten what an absolute beast the 5D Mark II is.

A power house of image quality with a massive sensor, Hollywood film sequences and entire episodes of prime time network TV have been shot on it purely for the way it looks. But it does have one big flaw.

This is now much reduced with the VAF-5D2.

Anti-moire and aliasing filter for the 5D Mark II – is it any good?

Buy the Mosaic Engineering VAF-5D2 Anti-Aliasing Filter for $385

The biggest issue with Canon DSLRs is the rainbows – I don’t so much mind the lack of resolving power relative the GH2, sometimes a softer image is more organic and cinematic. Certainly when you project the footage on a big screen and sit back, it looks detailed enough yet organic. Quite unlike on an LCD monitor. The worst thing you can have is an image that isn’t organic but over-sharpened with the bright high contrast jagged lines around every single detail – it’s extremely tiring on the eyes and very DV.
