Excellent shot, and excellent thread. I'll ask you....do you think the D810 is fast enough for BIF? I know 5 fps is not exactly setting the world on fire as far as fast frames are concerned. But if the AF is fas and accurate enough, you might get 4 out of 5 shots as keepers.

btw...how much of a crop did you do to get that eagle so full in the frame?

Well you can get up to 7 FPS by shooting in crop mode and with the grip and AA batteries, so a 15MP image with 7 fps would work decently I would assume.

I'd want the pixels for cropping. :)

I actually shoot in 1.2x crop. It gives me an increase in FPS with battery pack, more buffer room (37 shots) and I'm still shooting with 25MP. I'm getting between 6-7 FPS.

As far as the cropping question goes it depends on how far you are from subject and what lens you are using.

Here is an image not cropped in post, just the in-camera 1.2x crop at 600mm for a 720mm FOV.

Great photos!

I have literally just got a D810 and haven't had time to play with it. Can you tell me if the crop mode actually gives you a real focal length increase?

Regards,
Ian

It's just changing the field of view, not a focal length increase. It would be the same as if you cropped in post. The benefit of crop mode is increased FPS and buffer.

That makes sense - thanks for your reply!

Same here, took some getting used to and was a bit frustrating at first.
