But nothing really changes...you could get the same framing advantage by taking a Sharpie marker to the viewfinder of any DSLR. Only difference with the 1.3x crop mode is the marking can be turned off so easier to erase than a grid drawn with a Sharpie

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)

Seriously?

Yes. That really is what 1.3x crop mode is. Same as drawing a box on your viewfinder with a Sharpie and only recording what's in the box. With the sharpie method though, if you change your mind you still have the entire scene recorded...but the file is bigger and fps went down

I know exactly what 1.3x crop mode is. I just found your response to my valid comment about what I ( and Jimoyer) find is an advantage (being able to see what's coming into frame before it does) as completely snarky and not up to your usual helpful standard.

Think it over, FujicaST605 - Mako is right.

In the viwfinder, the crop-mode is just a drawed line-box. Nothing else - and nothing that you didn't have without that drawed box. You are giving exactly the same informations in the viewfinder about the taken Picture - no more no less. The differense is alone, if you crop it imediatedly or later in PP.

BirgerH.

I've been trying to explain this further down in the thread - it doesn't give you any advantage by seeing what is coming into the frame - the extra people think they are getting in crop mode to see the subject before it enters the frame you still are getting in DX mode just that you are capturing that extra in the image as well.
