Why do jagged horizontal lines
sometimes show up?

The end result is most commonly seen on thin lines and paterns, and ranges from overt
to invisible. For an example, watch the gray roofop here:

The frst thing you should do when switching your DSLR from stll to movie mode is to
make sure the Sharpness setng is turned all the way down. This won’t come close to
eliminatng aliasing under all conditons but it should reduce your camera’s problems.
As the chips inside these cameras get more powerful, we might see a HDSLR that does
some in-camera image sampling; but to eliminate aliasing problems, the best soluton
might be to actually lower the camera’s resoluton (this is one of the advantages of a
5-megapixel RED camera over a 21-megapixel DSLR).

For more on the technical reasons behind aliasing and moire, see Barry Green’s post at
DVXuser and Stu Maschwitz’s follow-up (I commented on both as well).

The frst thing
you should do
when switching
your DSLR
from still to
movie mode is
to make sure
the Sharpness
setting is turned
all the way
down.

Rolling shuter, known informally as jellocam, is another drawback inherent to large CMOS
sensors. Yes, CMOS technology allows you to put a big ‘ole chip inside a relatvely cheap
camera (compared with a 3CCD approach), but with the good (Shallow depth-of-feld! Low-
light sensitvity!) comes the bad (Stuck pixels! Bayer fltering!) and the ugly (Jellocam!).
Because large CMOS sensors scan top-to-botom instead of all at once like CCDs, fast
movements and pans can cause the image to appear to wobble. I can show you beter than I
can tell you:
