NIKON D600 D-SLR W/24-85 3.5-4.5 VR LENS

New Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor — the high optical performance of NIKKOR lenses maximizes the advantage of high pixel count [NEW]

The new Nikon FX-format CMOS sensor (35.9 x 24.0 mm) with 24.3 effective megapixels delivers stable high image quality at a wide ISO sensitivity range from ISO 100 to 6400 (expandable to ISO 50 to 25600 equivalent) utilizing large pixel pitch. You can enjoy large and beautiful bokeh effects that only the FX format with its large-size image plane can offer, and 14-bit A/D conversion and a high signal-to-noise ratio deliver images with rich tonal gradation and reduced noise. Combined with its high resolution, this achieves high-quality images that can be enlarged or cropped. And what maximizes the advantage of this high resolution is the NIKKOR lenses that deliver superior optical performance. The vast array of the FX lens lineup makes a wide variety of photographic expression possible. In movie shooting, the abundant data from 24.3 megapixels produces full HD movies with high definition.

Compact and lightweight body — the smallest and lightest among Nikon FX-format models

Inheriting an array of specifications and functions equivalent to those of the D4 and D800 series, the D600 realizes the smallest and lightest camera body among Nikon FX-format models. There has been a comprehensive improvement of many details, such as reducing the number of components by giving multiple functions to each one, reviewing the space efficiency of various parts, optimizing the design around the pentaprism and employing a smaller AF sensor module. All of these factors help achieve a compact and lightweight body with superior agility.

High-density 39-point AF system featuring seven focus points compatible with f/8 for superior subject-acquisition performance

The D600 comes equipped with a Multi-CAM 4800 autofocus sensor module. 39 focus points acquire and track the subjects precisely and the nine cross-type sensors cover the most frequently used center area to deliver higher subject-acquisition performance. Moreover, the seven focus points (five central focus points and one point to the left and right of them in the middle line) are compatible with f/8. Stress-free and smooth focusing is realized with the 1.4x or 1.7x teleconverter and precise focusing is possible even with the effective aperture value of f/8 by attaching a 2.0x teleconverter to telephoto lenses with maximum aperture of f/4. Comfortable AF shooting is realized for shooting wild birds or trains, for example, from a long distance at high magnification. AF area can be selected from single-point AF, dynamic-area AF (9 points, 21 points, 39 points), 3D-tracking and auto-area AF. Combined with the Scene Recognition System utilizing a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor that recognizes smaller subjects, the D600 shows higher subject-tracking and subject-identification performance. Furthermore, it is possible to choose an 11-point option by using custom settings. This is convenient for selecting a focus point quickly.

Selectable AF-area modes according to the subjects

Single-point AF mode
The camera focuses on the subject at a selected focus point only. This is most suitable for stationary subjects, for example, when you want to focus on your subject's eyes in a character portrait.

Dynamic-area AF mode
Suitable for a moving subject. The camera will focus based on information from surrounding focus points if the subject briefly leaves the selected point. Dynamic-area AF allows you to choose from 9, 21 or 39 points. In each mode, the selected AF point and the surrounding points cover a wide area to keep your subject in sharp focus, combining with AF-C (continuous-servo AF) of autofocus mode.

3D-tracking mode
The camera tracks the subject using all 39 points. This is ideal for shooting subjects that are moving erratically from side to side in a creative composition. Once the subject is focused with a selected focus point, the camera maintains tracking of the subject by automatically shifting among focus points according to the subject's movement while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. By utilizing subject tracking of the Scene Recognition System, the D600 recognizes fine patterns of the subject's color and brightness that are tracked with selected focus point to achieve highly accurate and stable subject tracking.

Auto-area AF mode
The camera identifies and focuses the subject automatically using all 39 focus points. With a G- or D-type AF NIKKOR lens, the D600 can distinguish foreground and background and detects a person's position by recognizing human skin tone for improved subject acquisition.

High-speed continuous shooting at approx. 5.5 fps in both FX and DX formats for up to 100 shots, that captures the decisive moment

The D600 achieves high-speed performance by employing an exclusive driving mechanism that drives the mirror independently. Combined with the enhanced speed of the image-processing engine EXPEED 3, high-speed continuous shooting at approx. 5.5 fps*1 in both FX and DX formats, for up to 100 shots*2 is realized. Using dynamic-area AF allows you to capture the decisive moment of a moving subject more precisely. Start-up time is only approx. 0.13 s*1 and release time lag is approx. 0.052 s*1 which is close to the approx. 0.042 s*1 of the D4. The shutter-release button and power switch are coaxially located, realizing smooth transition from turning on the camera to releasing the shutter, while the grip shape does not hinder finger movement. All of this contributes to quick and comfortable shooting, helping you to capture unexpected photo opportunities.

*1Based on CIPA Guidelines.
*2JPEG, excluding fine/Large in FX format (max. 57 shots).

Scene Recognition System with enhanced accuracy achieved by the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor

The Scene Recognition System recognizes the subject's situation accurately prior to shooting and enables highly precise auto control. The D600 analyzes the subject's situation, including brightness and color, finely before shooting, employing information from the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and image sensor, and applies it to autofocus, auto exposure, i-TTL balanced fill-flash and auto white balance control. Especially in phase-detection AF using the viewfinder, the high precision of auto-area AF is supported using subject identification, while that of 3D-tracking is supported utilizing subject tracking. Also, face-priority AF is available using face detection information of the image sensor during live view or movie recording. In playback zoom of a face in still images, the face can be zoomed in on, allowing easy confirmation of the focus.

Auto exposure control

The 2,016-pixel RGB sensor detects highlights within a frame precisely. It calculates optimal exposure to deliver more accurate auto exposure control and i-TTL balanced fill-flash.

Auto white balance that support various light sources accurately

The D600 detects color and brightness information of the shooting scene before shooting utilizing Scene Recognition System and identifies the light source highly accurately by referencing its massive collection of in-camera shooting data. In addition to the conventional setting of Auto 1 (Normal) that compensates lighting colors, the D600 allows you to set another auto white balance mode, Auto 2 (Keep warm lighting colors), that maintains warm lighting ambience when you shoot under incandescent light. If the image is shot in RAW, these modes can be applied using the NEF (RAW) processing of the D600's in-camera retouch menus regardless of the shooting setting.

After reading so many reviews about the D600, I thought I would write one of my own. Back in the late 90s I purchased a Nikon f50 as my first camera, without knowing what to expect from a 35mm, after using a point and shoot as a kid, I soon realized how awesome that optical view finder is. Like putting on a underwater mask to go snorkeling, and seeing with one eye how there was a whole new world out there that you just can't get by looking at a 3" LCD screen, well with film and developing being what it is today, needless to say the digital world has taken over. So after going through 3 digital point and shoot cameras, I'm not so enthusiastic to pick up another one of those toys. It's only been a couple weeks since I picked up the D600 with 24-85. And much like my very first Nikon 35mm. I can't put it down. Yes I tried the D7000, it's not a bad camera, but it sure isn't a FX. If I had to compare the value between the D7000 and the D600, without hesitation the D600 is the better choice for me. Yes it's more money, but if that means I'll be taking more pictures because of its great feel, lots of menu features and ease of use. then that's all I need to know. I'm not a pro, but I know what good pictures look like. I'm sure this camera will be suiting me just fine for a long time. I put on my old 50mm f1.8 that i picked up at a garage sale. It must be from the 1970s. And wow! I love this camera!

Excellent full frame camera, lots of options. And with all the hype of the oil/dust issue on the sensor was only with the first generation models, mine is fine so far and I'm happy that I bought it. I'm not happy that Nikon brought out the D610 so quickly.
