I've been shooting my D800E in 30x20 mode since that gives me 5fps for birding.

I did chop off some birds if I wasn't careful looking at the viewfinder lines. For context regardless even when using the full frame of a DSLR, chopped off BIF is somewhat a norm as the subject approaches.

Do I have that right that I am getting 5fps without grip as a result? I was left a little uncertain from reading the manual, but I think this is correct.

Also, is 30x20 mode and 1.2 crop the same thing?

This also allows for more frames before the buffer fills.

Best regards, SteveK
