I use one of the custom modes (C) to do this on my R3. Iíve also customized a button to change the shooting mode on the fly.


I do the same thing. Though, it kind of sucks when you forget that you're in crop mode. I have C3 as crop mode and it just mirrors what I have in C2 with crop mode swapped.

On the R5, Does crop mode alter the raw file number of pixels ?
For the 5DSR, the crop mode would give a raw that has a crop window, but all the pixels were still there. So you could revert back to full frame when editing. This made the CROP mode kind of pointless for me. No reduction in file size.

What are the advantages for using crop mode on the R5 ?

Yes the files are smaller.
The only advantage is when the AF is struggling to lock on a small subject in the frame. By quickly going to crop mode it will reduce the amount of AF "distractions" and seems to lock much quicker.
This only comes in handy when you have the time and your subject, usually song birds in my case, hangs around for a few moments. Otherwise I rarely ever use crop mode as I've learned it's easier to just crop in post so long as the AF doesn't struggle.

IMO crop mode is more relevant when you need to deliver images straight out of camera and the receiving end either can't edit or doesn't know how to edit images effectively. For example, this could be a news deadline type situation. I have used it for youth sports on-site printing so that the kids nicely fill the images. Sure, they could be cropped from the full frame image with the same result, but lots of dead space and/or distractions looks less appealing to the average viewer not versed in post production options.

I may have to try it for birding. Thx

I want to thank everyone who responded. Much appreciated !!

Good to know that it may be possible on the R3, hopefully they will include this option with the up coming R5 II & R1

Curious if a future FW update would enable this action on the present R line.

I can tell you its available on the Sony A line.. Wonder if its also available on the Nikon Z line


It's not possible on an R3 either, it's still a custom button and turn the wheel,
