D600 vs D300s exposure difference.

Hey that's what I'm doing,

But I be using both cameras in the field at the same time. Shooting a wedding for an example. It's good to know how different they act when using different exposure modes, auto WB, A mode, P mode, etc. If I was using two of the same bodies like I been doing with my D300 and D300s, this would not be a concern.

But to me the biggest concern is the difference between controls between my D300 and D600. Now that can get confusing when your heavy into shooting an event and switch cameras. And If I hit that OK button in the middle of the muti-selector on my D600 one more time and expect it to do the same as the button in the center of the muti-selector on my D300, I think I'm going to get really upset. Instead of getting 100% crop on my D300 I get the useless edit menu on my D600. Man I wish I can find a way to turn that off.

Just got the D600 a week ago and I'm trying to set it up as close as possible to my D300s. I thought I go out and take a few shots outside with both cameras using the same lens, Nikon 17-55mm, and see how different the metering system react to the same lighting condition. Using Matrix metering in manual mode I got the same exposure reading. But for some reason the D600 exposure is brighter than my D300s. Curious on why that would be, difference in sensor sensitivity maybe? I used the same settings, including picutre controls, on both cameras.

really?

There is hardly any noticeable difference. They are different cameras, with different sensors.

Go shoot photography.
