The Nikon D600 Digital SLR Camera Body features a full-frame 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor in a compact form-factor. That means the D600 is both slimmer than a traditional HDSLR and more budget-friendly. And with a full-sized sensor also comes a powerful engine; the EXPEED 3 processing system enables features such as 5.5 fps continuous shooting at full resolution. Also, compact as it may be, the D600 still fits in a 3.2" LCD monitor.

The D600 also has other hardy features that allow the camera to stretch for the photographer's needs. Such features include a wide ISO range of 100-6400, which is also expandable to 50-25600. This allows shots to be captured in a variety of lighting situations, from low-light to bright, with minimal image noise. The camera also has 39 focus points for wide-area AF coverage for both stills and HD video capture.
Other ways that the D600 enables the photographer to focus on the job at hand include features like Nikon's well-known metering and onboard intelligence. The camera uses the company's intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II for beautiful, high-def images. This metering takes into account brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors for accurate, balanced photos. The i-TTL flash, auto white balance, subject tracking, and autofocus all come into play as well.
The D600 is an HDSLR, featuring 1080p HD video capture. Selectable frame rates include 30/25/24p at the highest resolution and 30/25/24p at 720p. Other useful features at the photographer's disposal for shooting movies include manual exposure control, full-time AF with face-priority, dedicated inputs for a stereo mic and headphones, Simultaneous Live View, and then some.
The Nikon D600 is compatible with F-mount NIKKOR interchangeable lenses (both FX and DX-format), giving the photographer a wealth of options. Additionally, the camera can be used with Nikon's WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter for wireless transfer of images to a smartphone or tablet. The adapter can even be used for remotely capturing images with the D600 using the compatible app.
Compact Full-Frame HDSLR Full-frame, high-resolution performance is available in a compact, affordable HDSLR - the D600. The camera's 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor captures every detail with lifelike sharpness. Its EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with speed and accuracy, enabling up to 5.5 frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting at full resolution. The camera also features a fast power-up (0.13 seconds) and minimal shutter release lag (0.052 seconds). And the low-light performance synonymous with Nikon is again proven deserved-shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25,600 for extreme situations.
Highly Accurate AF System for Superior Sharpness The D600 has 39 focus points that provide wide-area AF coverage and offer seemingly endless compositional possibilities. The 9 cross-type sensors and 7 center focus points work all the way down to f/8.0 for extended AF functionality with teleconverters and long-reach lenses. When shooting photos or HD video in Live View, Nikon's responsive contrast-detect AF activates for accurate full time auto focusing.
Metering and Onboard Intelligence The D600 delivers consistently beautiful still images and HD videos, thanks to Nikon's intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II. Its 2,016 pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and the scene colors, all within the time it takes to press the shutter release button. That data is then referenced against an onboard image database for consistently accurate exposures, auto white balance, i-TTL flash and subject-tracking autofocus performance.
Cinema-Quality HD Video Projects Shoot 1080p HD videos with selectable frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression. Bend time with 720p HD at 60p, 50p or 30p for ultra-smooth video playback of fast moving subjects, or create slow-motion footage during post processing. Maintain your creative vision with manual exposure control, full-time AF with face-priority and subject tracking, dedicated inputs for a stereo mic and headphones, still image exporting, and much more. Enhance all that with the dramatic perspectives and depth-of-field control of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses.
Built-In Accessory Terminal On the opposite side of the camera's dual memory card bays you'll find the various sockets and ports including everything from audio jacks to USB. Under the flap designated "GPS" is the same accessory port used for both the GP-1A GPS Unit and MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord (both sold separately). While there is no 10-pin terminal, the MC-DC2 enables remote firing of select D-SLRs, including this D600, so you won't bump or vibrate the camera when taking photos. The GP-1A geotags your images so you can record latitude, longitude, altitude and time information. Allowing you to plot your images on map software and retrace your steps.
Share Images Easily with the WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter Using the optional WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter, users can automatically send great pictures to their smartphone or tablet and even remotely capture images from the D600. With its simple app, now when you can't wait to share that great image, you don't have to. Share it to your smartphone or tablet in an instant.

Wonderful FX camera - have been waiting for the "right" fit in full frame, and the D600 is it. Perfect for the advanced amateur with "attitude" :-)

Shing M. from MERCER ISLAND, WA:
I am not a pro photographer and I am upgrading from a D80. I take mostly pictures of kids' sports and activities (concerts, performances). Thus, the ability to handle low light situation is very important to me. The D600 is a vast improvement over the D80 in every respect. The D600 at ISO 6400 out performs the D80 at ISO 800. The D600 produces photos with brilliant color and its focusing is fast. I travel a lot and the D600 is perfect because it is not too big nor too heavy. If you're looking to upgrade to a full frame camera, I highly recommend the D600. I even like the D600 charger. There is a small adapter you can use to plug the charger into the wall without bulky wire.
