At least I assume that is what I am seeing..On some of my images, when I view them (ViewNX2, RAW,) I can see areas that look out of focus, blurred.These are usually areas where there are repeating patterns, such as tree lines , grass, and bright fall leaves. But from what I am reading I am not sure that is my problem because if I blow the image up to 100% they 'clean up',looking ok, until I let it go back to the default size.. Now if I resize/convert to a jpeg many times the blur is still there, but not always.
Can someone point me to a good article ( no videos please..26.4Kbps dial up connection..not even 56K ) to help me understand what moire is?? Or is this a color aberration issue? ( and I still have very little understanding of those terms)
