I haven't seen this as an issue for many years, and certainly isn't an issue
with the Canon D30/60, Nikon D1X, 100 etc.

Why must you decode them in the camera?

Or...doing it with an exceptional algorithm, or using hardware as well to
implement parts of the algorithm.

Or an issue inherent in the use of silicon as the "filter", and having the
"filtration" stacked.
