!dx Mark ll

I just worked with a friend that has a sony A9 and it was able to switch between full frame and crop sensor, he told me that the 1DX Mii also had that ability, does anybody know if that is correct.

I believe all you can do is save cropping info with the image when shooting in Live View.

I believe some of the Sony bodies can automatically switch from full frame to crop mode when you mount a crop sensor lens onto the camera body.  Canon full frame bodies are not able to mount crop sensor lenses, so such a feature would be moot.

EF-S lenses won’t mount, but third party crop lenses can be mounted.

I guess you could use LV and use crop marks to frame usable portion of image.

The Canon mirrorless (RP for sure) can do it but not the DSLR. On the RP you can set 1.6 crop for EF lenses and it's automatic if you mount an EF-S lens to 1.6
