If you’ve shot any reasonable amount of video with the 5D Mark II, then you have likely encountered aliasing and moiré pattern interference.  Mosaic Engineering has built a filter that fits inside the Canon 5D Mark II and actually fixes these problems.

While there are some other niggling issues created by the use of this filter, it appears that the benefits more than outweigh the problems.  Check out the video below for the full rundown.

Right now the filter is only available for the 5D Mark II; however, the company is currently exploring development for the Canon 7D as well.

This looks to be a great product for any photographer using the 5d MkII, but where can I get one from and what would the cost be?

Panasonic modified HDSLR sensors in their four third F 101 video cameras and could solve aliasing & moire pattern artifacts. That was a good idea. Many cinematographers like this modification. The F 101 is a video camera and has many video options for cinelike quality as well. If Canon could release 5D MK II with an easier method to change it from photo mode to movie mode (may be in MK III), with anti aliasing & anti moire filters, video setting, …, many projects will shift to shoot by 5D MK II. I think that is not so far. But all of Mk II owners have a chance to modify their sensors easily by purchasing a filter and put it on sensor!
Ok, I,m waiting for it. I hope to see it in camera stores soon. Good job Mr. Glenn Przyborski.
