Sensor and Viewfinder Details

The newly designed 24.3MP full frame CMOS sensor is powered by the same EXPEED 3 processor as the Nikon D4 giving the D600 the ability to continuously shoot at 5.5fps, record 16 bit raw files with a native ISO range of 100-6400, expandable to 50-52,600.

39 AF points, nine cross type seven of which are sensitive to f/8 are powered by the Multi-CAM 4800 AF system giving fast accurate focus.

2016 pixel RGB sensor allows for full-time face detection with 3.2” 921,000 dot live view and while shooting through the viewfinder using the 100% coverage finder.


Movie Recording Function

Movie recording has been influenced by the D800 giving the user the option of streaming uncompressed video to an external monitor using the HDMI port.

Memory

Storage for all the lovely pictures and movies you will be capturing is taken care of with two SD cards as with the D7000. Gone is the SD and CF card partnership for the D600 to aid in keeping size and weight down. Share and upload all your images straight from the camera to your Android/IOS device with the newly announced WU-1b Wi-Fi adapter. It allows for wireless transfer of images and usage of your phone screen as a second viewfinder and shutter release.

Controls

D7000 users will instantly feel at home with the controls and how the body moulds into you hand with just 9mm extra width and 8mm height of magnesium alloy, weather and dust sealed to the same standards as the D800.

Battery Pack Ad-on

Nikon have announced the MB-D14 battery pack which accepts AA or the EN-EL15 batteries giving extra life, extra shutter button for portrait orientation and a bit more stability when using long/heavy lenses.

Price Point

Priced at £1955.99 for the body, £2443.99 with the 24-85mm kit lens, the Nikon D600 is ready to go on sale on 18 September 2012.

The new MB -D14 battery pack will retail for £249.99 and the WU-1b Wi-Fi adapter for £64.99.

      Looks like a very good deal for the price. Not ready to invest in such a high quality camera, but will remember this for when I do. Thanks for sharing.

      After alot of research, my husband and I decided to get the Sony RX-100 a few months ago. It isn't quite up to par with this Nikon (it sounds), but it really is a great entry level DSLR, and the price was around $600 (for anyone who might be price sensitive). Admittedly, I don't know much about cameras, but I do love the small, compact nature of the Sony RX-100. Just yesterday, we enjoyed our beautiful Northeast spring day with a walk through the park, and a picnic, and this camera nestled nicely in the one of the holding compartments of my son's stroller. Great hub though!
