What is moir?? (red/blue stripes)

\015 In some of my photos I have an odd red/blue stripe or pattern. What is this?\015

Answers :

Sometimes odd stripes or colors will appear in a digital image, either from a high-end digital camera, or from a scanned image. This effect is called moir? and is caused when a fine pattern in the subject (such as the weave in a fabric or very close, parallel lines in architecture) matches the pattern of the imaging chip. When two patterns meet, often a third, new pattern is created. This third pattern is called moir?.\015\012\015\012In order to reduce (or eliminate) moir?, a special anti-aliasing filter is mounted in the camera. If too strong a filter is mounted an overall soft image will be produced, but with no moir?. If a weaker filter is chosen the image will be sharper, but there is more of a chance for moir? to happen in some circumstances. Nikon has chosen to produce the sharpest image that can be made, even though there may be some moir? in parts of some images.\015\012\015\012\015\012To help reduce moir? there are many techniques to use:\015\012\015\012Change angle of camera.\015\012Since the angle of the camera and subject causes moir?, slightly changing the angle of the camera (by rotating the camera) can remove or change any moire that is present.\015\012Change camera position\015\012Again, changing the angle relationship by moving left or right, up or down can reduce moir?.\015\012Change focus point\015\012Moir? is caused by very sharp focus and high detail on fine patterns; slightly changing the focus point changes the sharpness and can help to remove moir?.\015\012Change lens focal length\015\012Different lenses or focal length settings can be used to alter or remove moir?\015\012Remove with software\015\012Nikon Capture (as well as several third-party, Adobe\302\256 Photoshop\302\256 plug-ins) can be used to remove any moir? that does appear in the final image.\015\012Of course it may not be possible to remove all moir? in all cases, but in general an overall clean, sharp image with slight moir? is preferred over a soft focus image.\015\012\015\012Moir? can happen with images from all digital cameras and scanners, but is more likely to happen with an SLR-type digital camera system because the lens, sensor and software are designed to produce the sharpest, most accurate image possible.\015\012\015\012When reviewing images to see if moir? is present be sure to be looking at the image on the computer screen (or the camera's LCD) at the full, 100% view. If you zoom out on-screen a false moir? can be produced by the pattern of the monitor grill.

My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes. The pictures captured by the camera do not display the same vertical stripes, which seems to indicate it is a problem that only affects the focusing screen. These stripes take up about 2/3 of the right side of the viewing screen. Do you know what might be affecting the problem? In addition the camera has never been dropped or mishandled in any way.
