5.0 out of 5 stars NIce Job, Nikon!, September 20, 2012
This review is from: Nikon D600 24.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (OLD MODEL) (Electronics)
Make this short and sweet-

Had a Nikon D300, D700, D3 and sold them. Also had 2 D800 that had focusing problems-and returned them. However, Nikon hit a home run with this camera!

I use/shoot primarily wildlife/birds in flight, and I can say, that even though it shoots 5.5fps, this is 90% fast enough for birds that are in flight (hawks, or birds moving erratically-hummingbirds).

The 24MP is big enough to crop,without losing alot of detail, but what is really nice is the high iso capabilties that you need for wildlife and birds! As you know, when shooting birds in flight, you often have to crop when they are high in the school, even with large Nikon 500mm f4 VR lenses!

The AF is good enough to land 90% keepers and I have more keepers that shooting with my previous D300, D700 and D3!

Nice job, Nikon!

Not possible for birds in flight at the D600 frame rate. Nikon still has yet to replace the D300/D700+MBD10 high action 8 FPS, short of the brick-body D4.

Kevin, right under the product picture it has a link to click to share related photos...you just click that and upload the pictures and they'll display below the product picture. I'd love to see some shots too from this camera, especially birds or wildlife as that is my primary interest.

Can you compare for us the ISO capabilities between this and the D300? I shoot the D300 and would like to get something with better sharpness and noise control. I thought the D300 was going to be rocking in the ISO area but really anything over 1000 just kinda sucks. Is this a big enough jump to please me?
Thanks

You can shoot iso up to 6400 very clean!!

I have shot birds in flight over the past month, and D600 blows D300 iso away!
