 hello everyone, I have a question about binning on cmos sensors, (mono, of course!) I understand that it is done in software mode and not hardware as in the ccd, on some forums I read that it would be the same as doing a normal recovery without binning and then cropping to 50%, and true as read, are there any real advantages in shooting in 2x2 binning, first of all increasing the sn ratio?
thanks fo reply!
