p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D800 1.2X crop mode samples


I've received several requests for BIF with the D800 in the 1.2 mode. I used the 70-200 VR II w/TC-17E II
to give y'all an idea what ~400mm looks like. Turning (a5) to OFF gives you nice VF shading for comps.
As is the 'monkey way, these are handheld & SOOC. Feel free to post 'em if ya got 'em, thanks!

As usual top notch. I use 1.2 crop for shooting sports and I am very happy with the FPS boost and tighter crop.

Great pictures as always, but... it looks more 4:5 crop than 1.2 crop to me.

Love the shots, Will! I'm guessin' you use the TC-20E III with the 70-200 as well? At least I'm hoping so, seeing as that's what I have! Just starting to get some BIF keepers with that combo... don't have a Bush hawk set up as of yet, but it's on Santa's list.

Do you get a faster FPS in 1.2? About how much would you say?

it's another fps, or, i guess you could say, a 25% increase in speed. Really quite nice. I'd never bother to buy a grip and get battery for the 6fps in even-smaller-crop mode. Sigh, need to get a 1.4x TC ;-0 Like the last shot "o hai ther! mind if i join u? no sir lol!"

With the grip and AA-batteries you'll get 6fps as well. No need for the extra battery-cap and D4 battery.
Works fine for me.

Thanks a lot, Bill. The B'Hawk doesn't play especially well with a zoom unless you have a third hand
I've used it some with the 70-200/200-400 but usually locked at the long end as zooming requires you to take
your hand off the camera body or using the extension handle/trigger to fire. (and that's another can of worms)

TM, the photos are actually 4:5 crop (except for the third one with is 2:3 so that one could be 1.2X mode).

Great shots!
