Have you ever had a wonderful fashion shoot, only to look at your images or video on the back of your camera (or even worse, on your computer when you get home) and noticed that the fabric is making a weird effect? That is called moiré, and it can ruin great images – not just in fashion, but with any subject that features fine repetitive detail when shot with a camera that doesn't have an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), also known as an anti-aliasing (AA) filter.

Well, if you have a camera that lacks one – namely a Panasonic Lumix S1, S1H, S5, S5 II, S5 IIX, GH6 or Sigma fp – your prayers have been answered. The clever folks over at Kolari Vision have developed a low-pass filter modification to stop moiré ever showing up again in your images… but be prepared to spend a pretty penny to get this permanently fixed!
