Re: Help me understand D800 Cropping Purposes

I do like it, and the reason is storage savings. I shoot raw and keep these files, and as long as there isn't any possibility to crop raw files in post yet, the in-camera crop feature is a good way to adjust raw file sizes to the subject.

If you do portraits, 5:4 is a good ratio many times and generates files aprox 20% smaller. If you want to extend reach in tele, DX will generate raw files half the size of FX. This makes D800 very versatile with raw.

You don't need to use DX lenses to take advantage of expanded tele reach in DX mode.
