Can Someone Please Explain "DX Mode" to me?

Discussion in 'Nikon DX DSLR Forum' started by Jeff Fillmore, Jul 28, 2008.

  1. Can someone please explain if there is any real advantage to using the D3/D700 DX Mode over just cropping away any vignetting a DX lens may produce later? Especially with a zoom that may only vignette on the wide end- what is the advantage? Can you overide the camera and shoot a DX lens in FX mode?

    Thanks for any insight on this-

    It saves space on your memory card
  3. Yes you can override DX mode - there is a menu setting that allows you to turn Auto DX off (which is what I've done).
    I've then assigned the function button+wheel to scroll through FF - DX - 8x10 modes.
