I tested it out and it works quite well but I was wondering is it really doing anything that you could not do in post anyway? The camera is recording with a particular bandwith, regardless of crop. This implies that if you record say 4K at 100mbs and crop to an HD size in post, you are throwing 75% of your used bandwith away, leaving an HD image at 25mbs. If you crop directly to HD size in camera and record at 100mbs, you get a HD image recorded at a max bandwith of 100mbs. I'm not sure if the camera actually uses 100mbs in such a case. As the HD crop in camera is likely to have less detail, the actual bandwith used might be less then 100mbs. For all practical purposes it might not matter much, if your uncropped footage looks good from the start. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
