Mirrors are not the only thing an HDSLR shooter doesn’t need. Here’s a reason to think differently about depth of field.

Over the last months Johnnie Behiri used the Nikon’s new flagship HDSLR, the D4, to shoot this image video about the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
While some few shots were done on other HDSLR’s the majority came from the D4 and in particular from the D4’s 2.7x crop mode.
What is that mode?
It only uses a 1920×1080 pixels crop of the sensor. The result is much more depth of field (less blurry background) but also a very crisp, moire and aliasing free image.
