Thread: Why are Moire Patterns mostly blue/orange?

    Why are Moire Patterns mostly blue/orange?

    For cameras without AA filters (M9, D800E, my own hot-rodded 5DII) Moire patterns are possible.

    I was wondering why when they appear, they don't seen to show green/blue/red, but they are mostly blue/orange in color. Why is this? Any good scientific explanation?

    Something to do with the sensor having twice as many green-filtered photosites perhaps?
