T’is the season for camera releases, Nikon’s D600 is out

Nikon-D600

Well it seems everyone is releasing new gear. Yesterday we had Sony and the RX1 along with the Full Framed A99, today the Nikon D600. Where is Canon?

This was definitely no secret, the D600 is Nikon’s new entry-level full framed dSLR. According the Nikon USA’s pricing it comes in at about $1000.00 cheaper the the D800 hence the “entry-level” tag.

The specs:

  • Total Pixels: 24.7mp
  • Storage: SD, SDHC, SDXC
  • Dual SD card slot
  • Continuous Shooting: 5.5 fps
  • ISO: (50), 100 – 6400, (12800, 25600)
  • LCD: 3.2″ 921,000 Dots
  • Sensor Size: 35.9mm x 24.0mm

Full specs can be read on the Nikon website.

On paper it’s an extremely capable camera, one thing that pops out at me is that Nikon have long been the leader in offering exposure bracketing of more the 3 frames, unfortunately the D600 doesn’t get this treatment and is relegated to the 3 frame brigade. For anyone shooting HDR or if you are just wanting to bracket your exposures 3 is a bit limiting.

Strobist, David Hobby, has also written a post about the max sync speed of 1/200. If your not sure why this matters I would check it out.

What are your thoughts? Are you going to be ordering it?

Get on the list
