Indeed the D600 seems to be a nice... still camera, but since they already crippled down the 1/8000th shutter speed, Nikon needed to down-grade some basic features that even the most basic amateur DSLR do : aperture control in video mode. So for the moment, the single Nikon cameras offering such a basic feature are the D800(E) and D4.

Moreover, Nikon clearly states that the D600 is capable of offering clean HDMI output, which means clean 1080P output via external recorders that will use uncompressed or low image compression for better post production.

This guy tested the HDMI output, and it unfortunately shows a black box around the frame, cropping several pixels of the video. The D800 on the other side, offers full HD HDMI output :

What is Nikon thinking off ? Are we dumb rabbits ? I am disgusted by such a low-minded marketing politic. Being a long time Nikon shooter willing to upgrade to a nice Full frame camera with proper video down-sampling such as the D600 was a dream to me, and now, they crippled it, again : what a shame !!!

Its not a shame, nikon says, we build still cameras at first, and not videocameras!! If you want video buy a panasonic, i´m photographer, i buy Nikon!
