Product description
Announced Sep 13, 2012

The Nikon D600 is the smallest, least expensive full frame Nikon DSLR yet, aimed directly at enthusiast photographers. It is built around a 24MP FX format CMOS sensor and crams many of the features of the more expensive D800 into a distinctly D7000-esque body. It features a 100% coverage viewfinder and 39-point autofocus system, nine of which are cross-type points. It can capture 1080p HD video at 30, 25 or 24 frames per second and can stream uncompressed footage out over its HDMI port.

Our review

The Nikon D600 brings full frame functionality to the masses along with dual SD card slots and 100% viewfinder coverage. Image quality at high ISO sensitivities is outstanding and a wealth of customization options enables quick access to shooting controls.

Good for: Full frame shooters looking for a smaller, lighter and less expensive alternative to pro-level DSLRs. Photographers who often shoot at high ISOs.

Not so good for: Sports shooters who need wider AF coverage or videographers who demand real-time aperture control and fullscreen HDMI output.
