The Nikon D600 is a new digital SLR camera that is both affordable and portable compared to the usual DSLR package. The D600 is an entry-level digital SLR camera that uses the FX series of lenses. This DSLR is a terrific pick considering that the FX lenses have got cheaper in recent times. The D600 is a unique entry level DSLR that gives you full frame features but has a lower pixel count than usual DSLRs like the Nikon D800 gadgets.
The D600 has a full frame 24.7MP sensor and is capable of ISO range of100 to 6400, which can be expanded from 50 to 25600. The viewfinder has about 97 percent coverage for DX and 100 percent for FX, and the autofocus is 39 point strong. It comes with a 3.2-inch LCD. The Nikon D600 weighs around 760g and includes some weather sealing and that makes it highly durable. Video recording at HD 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps is possible. Face detection technology is also packed in.
Pros and Cons
The large sensor used has a larger viewfinder and shallow depth of the field, but it reduces noise giving more color depth and dynamic range. The best part of the FX DSLR camera can be the video recording capabilities at high definition 1080p at 30 frames per second. The D600 is lightweight and truly much in the affordable bracket.
Nikon obviously did not skip too much on the manual controls and port control to the menu. The flash control had electronic pop-up control like the Nikon D3200 but unlike the D800 and D4, which have a manual pop up flash button that may have appealed to serious photographers. However, the Nikon D600 sure does open up the market- those who want a full-frame sensor but want a DSLR without burning a big hole in the pocket.
