Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the crop in the Canon 5DS, part of Canon Digital SLR: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- In this video I want to share with you a new feature…only found in the Canon 5DS and 5DSR.…Now, when the Nikon D800 and D800E came out three years ago,…there was a feature in it called DX and FX mode,…and what it enabled you to do was simulate having…a crop sensor camera in a full framed camera, essentially,…giving you an 18 megapixel image instead of a 36.…Now, this is the first time we have seen…a similar feature in a Canon camera.…Now, 50 megapixels is a lot to work with.…
And we have the ability to crop after the fact.…So you can take an image, bring it…into post-production and crop it.…And you will still have, most likely,…a lot of megapixels left.…But what's really cool is you can actually do it in camera,…and I'm going to show you how that works.…We are going to go ahead and select the menu,…and we're going to be in the "shoot for" menu.…Crop aspect ratio.…It's defaulted at "full", which means you are getting…a full 50 megapixels.…If I come over to 1.3,…it means you are cropped in 1.3,…and you're getting a 30.5 megapixel image.…
