Chromatic aberration

What is Chromatic aberration?

Chromatic aberration meaning in Digital terms is An image defect caused when different wavelengths of light are focused at different distances from a lens. This results in varying degrees of sharp focus at the image sensor depending on the color or wavelength of light. Chromatic aberration is seen as "color fringing," and is most noticeable in an image at edges with high contrast.
