Re: No FF video on the D800?

A nice and informative video, Thanks.

What I think is missing is reference to the fact (if it is a fact) that the D800 does not actually offer FF video !

(I learnt that from the DPR review of the D800--here's a quote from the "Movie Mode" section: "Movies can be shot at two different crops from the sensor, FX and DX. This makes it easy to vary the field-of-view for grabbing footage, even if you’ve got a prime lens mounted. However, the ‘FX’ size is a significantly cropped version of the full sensor (it’s 91% of the sensor’s width), so the field-of-view will be a little narrower than you’d expect for any given focal length .")
Any comments on that point?

It's true, the D800 does have a very slight crop when switching to movie mode.
