Just thinking.... How hard would it have been for Nikon to have offered a square crop on the D800. It would have been a cool option to have. Yes, I know its available as a trim option in the retouch menu, but a RAW square file would be awesome.

Agreed. I shot a ton ton of 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 in college and I loved the square prints. It would have been another nice crop but oh well, no biggie.

Am I missing something? Why not just crop in post? Framing?

As someone who used to write computer systems validations, whenever I see a request for what seems like a simple feature addition, all I can do is start counting through the validation test cases in my head.

1:1 crop in three focus modes, four autofocus point selection modes, three metering modes with spot metering having a variable parameter, testing AF point illumination or no illumination, etc. I know it seems ludicrous but sometimes the amount of work to test a new feature is exponentially larger than the work to develop the feature

Hardcore -- yes, well that is the only option we are left with is it.

Binary -- ya, I still want it though

I'd love such an in camera crop

It would be handy! It can only be done in the retouch menu - but that renders a jpeg.

Undoubtedly. I'm all for anything that can take a step out of post-processing. I don't think I'd ever use such an in-camera crop myself but I disagree with the mentality that you can "always just crop it in post."

Of course you can - but if you know you're not going to use anything outside of the square, why would you add the step and the additional storage/processing time?

Yes - you can do anything you want in post -- its post! But why not shoot it the way you want it - in camera! Eliminate a step. I love the square crop.

I guess my rant is that -- they took the time and care to engineer a 1.2 crop and the 1.5DX crop, and a 5:4 crop mode...... why not 1:1?

The 5:4 crop may be intended for 8x10 prints. How many people print square?

Never miss the square format after I stopped shooting LP covers.
