Nikon D600

24 megapixels | 3.2 screen | Full frame sensor

So let's put the oil spatter issue to bed then: yes, my camera had the problem, yes, I sent it in to Nikon for a replacement shutter, and yes, this fixed the problem. Not Nikon's finest hour, certainly, but no reason to avoid the D600 today. The D600 is the entry-level FX dSLR from Nikon, essentially a full-frame version of the D7100. In direct comparison, the finder view is larger, the frame buffer is twice as big, and the AF points now cluster in a smaller, central region of the viewfinder. ...

Everything is great but its autofocus could be faster. It's fast enough but not always fast enough to capture close moving subjects. Besides that, I love it. I mostly use a Sony A6000 for its size, but if I need better image quality in low light, I go with this.

This camera is and was everything it was supposed to be, except that the shutter spits oil in the sensor, and this problem existed out of the factory.  It doesn't really affect me much since I so rarely shoot at the sky with f/16 or smaller.  No matter. It is a clear and widely known issue, and Nikon should never get my business again for the way they handled it and continue to handle this issue.  If I wasn't already so well invested in their lenses/system, I'd jump to Canon for just this issue.

The most important feature of this cam: popup flash, dual cards, very good DR, and indirectly, the 28-300mm lens with weight 800g. It did have a dust issue, which has been solved/repaired by Nikon Service without charge, even after its guarantee.

Likes: Great image quality, dynamic range, shadow recovery, iso performance Great handling, AF is quite good, reasonably fast / accurate Dislikes: ... if I had to complain about something it wouldn't be this camera.  It works well. I sent it in for the free shutter upgrade.  No difference that would alter my adherence to normal maintenance.

Just does everything I want and very well.  Sometimes a bit of a load at the end of the day with fast glass but well worth the output.  Looking to add a V series camera as backup...which one..undecided at this point.

I love this camera but there are some things I really hate about it too. It's been everything I need as a semipro photographer. Pros: Amazing dynamic range Excellent noise performance at iso up to 1250 (some say more but I don't see it, I hate shooting over iso 400, 1250 would be max) 5.5fps at 24MP what more do you need??? Great viewfinder! Cons: Live view is worthless, it doesn't show the correct exposure, it doesn't change when switching shutter aperature and iso. VERY VERY disappointed in ...

The D600 has had its share of bad publicity, therefore already replaced on the production line by the D610, which has another shutter, and a software tweak, or two. My background is a life in transport, security, illustration, and publishing, where a camera sometimes came in handy, so I have used them all, almost. One could say I grew up with a 35mm SLR (bought my first in my teens), and my dad's TLR, but eventually tired of the weight, and bulk, so I changed to Minox compact 35mm cameras ...

You can see my photo on flickr in my profile link. I shoot architecture, events, some landscape, fashion, model/portrait, strobing, sports, macro and camera covers it all.  This is a copy from my amazon review.  Hey this site is the same thing right. I upgrade from a d40 to d7000 and now this. I think the jump from d40 to d7000 was more performance and the higher megapixel (MP) was huge. What I noticed from d7000 to d600 are the iso improvement, more detail of 24mp and more bokeh (blurring of ...

As of today I have had my D600 for exactly one year and feel I have spent enough time with it to give an adequate review. Yes, I was one of those foolish early adopters who reserved the camera at my local camera shop and picked it up the first day it was available for purchase. My primary justification for the camera (at least to my wife :) ) was to use it for architectural photography of my own projects and I wanted a full frame camera to achieve the best color and DR and to be able to ...
