The Sensor Plane #12: Nikon Crop Modes

This week on The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast, I explore the various crop modes with my Nikon cameras. Ever since Nikon came out with their first 35mm format camera (FX format), the D3, they have implemented ways of cropping the images in the camera.

While the most obvious crop mode is Nikon DX (1.5x) format, which enables the use of DX format lenses on FX format bodies, Nikon also offers 1.2x and 5:4 crops on some of their cameras, including the D800 and D810. These crop modes can be useful in a variety of situations, but have some drawbacks depending on the camera you use.

  1. Hi Jason

    I’ve just discovered you web site and the Sensor Plane Podcast. Like it a lot but the audio on SP#12 is not audible on the video or the mp3 version.
