Re: Why not shoot smaller files?

If 12 MP is acceptable, the D800 can shoot in DX mode at much lower than 32MP. In fact it has a lot of options to shoot smaller files in less resolution. It is not locked in to 32MP mode.

I don't understand the complaint.

I do not trust downsampling inside camera and rather will use sensor with lesser native resolution. Using FX body in DX mode is plainly ridiculous even with DX lenses - one always can crop latter with much more desirable output.
