I never have used it in the past. A D810 at DX crop becomes effectively a 15.3MP DX camera with a lot less resolution than a D7xxx camera.

What I have found extremely useful is the 5:4 crop mode that was introduced with the D3 camera. When I am photographing people and know that they will want 8x10 prints I can crop in the camera and this saves a great deal of time in post.

5:4 is useful if you're shooting for an 8x10 output.

I use 1.5/1.2x occasionally if it is late in a wedding reception and the cards are getting low and I don't want to put a new one in.

Strange, my D3 shoots DX @ 11 fps


Never used my D3 in DX mode seriously, as mentioned I didn't like the IQ in that format

But neither saw the advantage (for me) to shoot the D3 at the highest fps possible, whether in DX or FX mode
Even if for action photography shooting at a high fps is next to mandatory, I don't like to spray and shoot and hen hope I got the shot amongst the multitude of pictures taken

Sure with perfect timing and sufficient advance knowledge of what is going to happen, and where, it's possible to still get a good action shot without a winder/motordrive
But IMO surf photography is too unpredictable in that respect and getting a good shot at 1 fps is too much of a gamble

Despite having the extended 30 NEF buffer (compared to the standard 15 NEF's) I preferred to shoot action sports at max 7 fps
Allowed shooting longer high/7 fps series, or a number of number of consecutive shorter high/7 fps series, compared to filling up the buffer at the highest fps possible (and then having to wait for the camera to write all the shots away and possibly missing any further action)

Virtually never. I just pick up my D5300 and shoot that.

Like Trenchmonkey said, I do a 1.2 crop on my D800 when shooting the Sigma 50-100mm/1.8. Itís the only one of my DX lenses I couldnít sell when I sold all my other DX stuff.

I don't shoot that way, just didn't want folks to think your 7fps was all the D3 could muster.
Never shoot mine in DX mode...use 5:4 quite often, however. A lil burst at 9 fps rate gives me
the exact wing position/rodeo move I'm after.
