Nikon D600 Full-frame DSLR
Nikon has launched its lightest and smallest full-frame FX format DSLR camera, the D600. The new model features a full-frame 24.3-megapixel CMOS image sensor and offers video recording capabilities similar to the D4, D800 and D800E.
Nikon says the D600 is now the smallest and lightest FX-format camera in its lineup, measuring 141 x 113 x 82mm and weighing 760g (body only).
The Nikon D600 has the same EXPEED 3 image-processing engine as the more expensive D4 and D800, delivering an ISO rating from 100 to 6400, expandable to ISO 50 (Lo 1) and up to ISO 25600 equivalent (Hi 2).
A Multi-CAM4800 autofocus sensor offers 39 focus points and nine cross-type sensors. In addition, seven focus points (five horizontal and one above and below the centre of the frame) are fully functional at f/8. Nikon says this allows more precise auto-focusing when super-telephoto Nikkor lenses are used with a 2x teleconverter.
On the back there's a 3.2-inch, 921,000-dot monitor with wide-angle viewing. A sensor automatically controls LCD brightness and contrast according to ambient lighting conditions.
There are dual SD memory card slots, compatible with SDXC UHS-I cards for smoother still-image
and movie recording.
The camera also offers full-HD movie recording at 1920 x 1080/30p and can be used with an optional wireless adapter (WU-1b) to transfer files from the camera to a computer, smartphone or tablet.
The D600 goes on on sale from Tuesday, September 18.
