Just Pre-ordered a Nikon D600! Some thoughts…

I’ve been waiting and anticipating the release of the Nikon D600 for quite a while now. The prospect of a smaller full frame camera, not to mention a more affordable one was pretty damn enticing to me. It seems to be mostly a Full Frame version of the D7000. The only thing I wanted that it doesn’t have is a 1/8000 maximum shutter speed which is helpful for shooting your fast lenses (f1.2, f1.4 and even f1.8) wide open in bright light. It does have a base ISO setting of 100 and is expandable to ISO 50 which would make up for the 1/4000 less shutter speed but we will have to see if the ISO 50 setting lowers Dynamic Range or blows highlights.

Everything else is looking good though! Here are just a few of the specs:

  • Sensor: 24mp full frame (35.9 x 24 mm)
  • Speed: EXPEED 3 processor, camera can shoot up to 5.5 fps
  • Build quality and size: Pretty close to a D7000. Mix of Magnesium (top & rear) + polycarbonate front
  • Flash: built in flash that can act as a commander to trigger off camera flashes using the Nikon CLS (Creative Lighting System)
  • Bonus! Something the D7000 & D800 don’t offer is support for a Wireless Adapter (WU-1b) that lets you run a app on your iPhone or Android to capture and share images.

Once I receive mine I will do a D600 vs D7000 comparison.
