DX lens on FX body without vignetting
Tue May 28, 2013 10:54 pm (PDT) . Posted by: "Vern Rogers" fotabug
Here is some great information for anyone who may have an FX Nikon body,
such as D700, D3(?), D4, D600, D800, etc. There is a way to shoot a DX lens
without vignetting in FX mode and not get a cropped lower resolution result.
I know, most FX camera users don't likely have DX lenses. But if you have
any, there is a way.
Here is what you do. Deactivate Auto DX in the Shooting Menu under "Image
Area". At least that's where it is on my D3. Then mount a 1.5x
tele-converter on the lens, such as the Kenko that I have. The result is
the same view you get with DX mode, but the great news is that you have full
resolution. So instead of a 5.1 MP image I have a 12 MP image on my D3.
With a D800 one would have the full 36 MP, with a DX lens! And the image
fills the whole frame, even at widest aperture! And the image area is the
same as you get with DX mode. What makes it great for me is getting 12 MP
images instead of 5.1 from my D3.
Here's some test shots (of no photographic merit) to show that I get full
resolution with DX image area and no vignetting. I shot the images with my
40mm Nikon Micro DX lens on a D3 in full frame mode, thus getting a 12 MP
result. Don't pay any attention to the image content, except for those two
important facts, full resolution and no vignetting. Here are three shots
using a DX lens with the same view one gets in DX mode, but with full
resolution and no vignetting - <http://www.pbase.>
I was wondering if someone could answer this for me. I am new to photography and am not too computer literate. I was asked by the magazine " Birds and Blooms" if I could send to them a high resolution version of the photo I had sent them to possibly use in a upcoming issue. I have a Nikon Coolpix P100. I no longer have the photo on a camera card but saved on my computer. I have no clue if that is possible or how to do that
