    This is at 100% magnification using Aperture's Loupe. Does anyone know what the maze-like pattern is showing in the middle (and more clearly towards the right side)? The this is a shot of an SB-800 pointing towards the camera.

    Here's the same pic zoomed out a little bit.

    This isn't a serious shot anyways -- just playing around so it's no big deal, but I'm just curious what that is/is caused from.

    Probably just how the computer is rendering the image.

    For whatever reason I don't see the image. It did not make it all the way to my screen so I'm really guesing. But from what you say it could be a Moire pattern.

    What you may have are two sets of grids are similar scales. One set of grid is the pixels in the sensor and the other is fine detail in the subject.é_pattern
    See the example of the parrot phot on the above page.

    it's probably how a camera renders lights together, part of the beyer output perhaps
