Moiré and the In-camera Sharpness Setting
Prepared 2006-02-20 (150/74899) by Bill Claff

(50mm f/1.8D at 1.77m)

These 6 shots represent the following Sharpness settings:







Here are 100% crops from the center of each of the six images:

Although Sharpness had an effect on the "graininess" of the Moiré, it had no effect on the Moiré itself.
