    Are there any techniques that can be used to minimize moire in the NEX-6's video, other than "don't shoot subjects with fine, repeating detail"? Our house has a lot of rough brick on it, and when I shoot video using my NEX-6 I often get noticeable moire (false color) when some of the brick is in the frame. The NEX's have more of a problem with this than some cameras (I'd rented the -6 and -7 along with some Mirco 4:3rds cameras when I was trying to decide what to buy and while the NEX video was generally quite good they definitely suffer more from moire).

    Two solutions come to mind:

    1) make sure your lens is very slightly defocused

    2) use an optical lowpass filter, but they are VERY expensive
