I'm thinking of going from DX to FX (crop to full frame) this summer. I'm a Nikon user so the options are D800, a used D700 or the unreleased D600 which is rumored to be 24MP.
If I don't go with the D700, I was wondering if it is possible to implement some kind of resizing or pixel-binning workflow. Shoot at full res (36 or 24MP), download to the computer, batch process to either 12 or 16MP, and then import those into Lightroom. Save the original files somewhere else (external hard disk), for a time when my computer is a little beefier to handle them.
A side-benefit is that via pixel-binning high ISO files will look even better.
Is this possible, and if so what kind of software will: a. automate it b. leave the resized files at the highest possible quality?
I'm using Mac OSX.
