Defending the D600

I still don’t buy the idea that we’re missing anything significant on the D600.

The D600 shoots 38% faster than the D800 (in frame rate).
The D600 buffers 8% MORE frames than the D800 (80% more than the D7000).
The D600 is quieter than the D800.

I can’t wait to control my D600 from my phone and be able to see what it sees on my screen!

When I started out in photography, my camera’s flash sync speed was 1/90. Then I got a new camera that synced at 1/125. In the times that I would have been limited by those sync speeds, 1/250 would NOT have solved the problem. We’re now talking about 1/200 vs. 1/250? That’s such an insignificant difference.

My first camera’s max shutter speed was 1/1000. The next one was 1/4000. I never felt limited. I mean, I’m sure having a faster maximum shutter speed could expand your possibilities but it’s not an absolute requirement for me.

Keep in mind that the D3/300/700 start out at ISO200 compared to ISO100 on the D600, so that actually means that the D600 is capable of dealing with the same amount of light that the D3/300/700 can.

Round eye-pieces, remote/PC jacks, whatever, whatever…all nice, but we’re really digging to find reasons not to like the D600.
