How much can you crop in on a D800E image? I decided to test that.

Took the D800E to a basketball game this past week. These are taken from inside a courtside loge so the distance to the hoop wasn’t too bad but certainly not like being on the sidelines. Since I was testing to see how well the images from the body crop, I decided to just stick a 50mm/1.4 lens on it. I switched to manual focus and focused on the hoop using max magnification in live view. Set to manual exposure, ISO 1600, F/4, 1/800th sec, JPG Large-Fine capture.

I have posted scenes with three JPGs for each.
The first being what the full field of view was – straight out of the camera.
The second being a crop of the action at the basket with no alterations.
The third being the same cropped shot but with an unsharp mask applied.

You have to be sure to have the full shot up when comparing against the crop shot so you can see just how cropped in these were. I would suggest right-click/saving these to your computer for review versus looking at them in your browser. If you do look at them in your browser make sure you wait for the file to fully render - in Chrome I know it takes a few passes before the full res shot is loaded.
