Do you use the 1:1, 16:9, or DX modes?

I never thought I'd use these modes since you can crop to achieve any of them from a full-sized image. As someone who doesn't mind cropping, I used to feel like I was limiting my potential results if I didn't shoot FX all the time.

But as I've used this camera more and more every day, I've found that it's really fun - and often useful - having these modes and knowing that what you see is what you get.

Granted, a lot of my photos end up on social media, so that factors in to the 1:1 and 16:9 being beneficial; but again, it's just fun to view my subjects or scenes through a different aspect ratio sometimes. It definitely affects my results, and I think in a positive way most of the time.

Anyone else use these modes, or do you prefer to always shoot full frame and then crop later?
