8 mpx crop of a 5DmkII picture
May 29, 2012

My thoughts.....

The 5DmkII has a maximum resolution of 5616 x 3744. If I devide this by 1.6, the resolution is 3510x2340 which is approx the same as my old 8.2 mpx 30D.

If I crop a 5Dmk2 picture to this resolution, would it be the same FOV as a crop camera?

I'm tempting between a 7D and 5DmkII as upgrade for my 30D that's why I'm asking this. I go to canada next augustus and expect to shoot landscope and wildlife there.

I only print normal formats so I think (nog sure yet but here are the experts) I can live with a 8 mpx crop of a 5DmkII if it still prints good.

I mainly used the center focuspoint of my 30D and don't do BIF.

Anyone an idea? Would I be happie with a 5DmkII and a cropped wildlife picture?
