Re: Overcoming some of the limitations of a D600

This is a non-issue except in the rarest of cases where, for example, someone wants to stop extremely fast action with a 1/8000 shutter.

D300s/D700/D3/D3s base ISO 200 max shutter speed 1/8000

D600 base ISO 100, max shutter speed 1/4000

These are the exact same exposure values. The same is tru for minimum ISO D300s/D700/D3/D3s minimum ISO was 100 using (Lo1), the D600 is ISO 50.

The D4 and D800 are better in the respect but the D600 is hardly lacking.

1. Max shutter speed of 1/4000. I know that with most photographers very few shots are taken above that speed. I know the limitation. My question is can it be overcome using ISO 50 and not ISO 100 in very bright sunlight? Does ISO 50 come with its own issues as it is not a real base ISO? I tend to think this as a simple solution, but the net is full of rant on the lack of a faster shutter speed on D600 when most cameras that are compared with have either 100 or 200 as base ISO . What are the other ways to overcome this limitation?
