Here is the post that you responded to:I think that person does not understand the point of crop cameras. It won't be a need for crop cameras when high resolution full frame cameras will cost as much as crop ones.
The post is about using crop mode on a full frame camera (like the R5 the poster uses), vs. cropping the image in post processing. You don’t know if the person understands the point of crop cameras because he’s not talking about them at all. You are. Ergo, you missed the point.I don’t understand the need to crop in camera? Wouldn’t cropping in post have the same result plus the ability to choose a variety of post capture compositions? I’d rather do it in post. I have the R5 and forgot it has the ability to crop in camera because I’ve never thought to use it. I’m primarily a portrait photographer though.
Do you understand the difference between crop mode on a full frame camera and a camera with a crop sensor, and that it is possible to discuss one without considering the other? The concepts are not terribly complex, I suggest you give them some thought before replying.
