FX-quality images and HD videos
Nikon’s most compact full-frame HD-SLR ever
Passionate photographers who seek exceptional full-frame, high-resolution performance rely on Nikon FX-format HD-SLRs. For the first time ever, that level of performance is available in a compact, affordable HD-SLR. D600's 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor captures every detail with lifelike sharpness. Its EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with remarkable speed and accuracy, enabling up to 5.5 frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting at full resolution. And the low-light performance synonymous with Nikon is again proven deserved—shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25,600 for extreme situations.
The beauty is in the details
Highly accurate AF System for superior sharpness
One of the keys to capturing razor-sharp images and HD videos—whether shooting through the viewfinder or with the LCD monitor—is a fast, precise autofocus system, and the D600 has one of the best. 39 focus points with wide-area AF coverage offer endless compositional possibilities. Nine cross-type sensors and seven center focus points work all the way down to f/8 for extended AF functionality with teleconverters and long-reach lenses. When shooting photos or HD video in Live View, Nikon’s responsive contrast-detect AF activates for accurate fulltime autofocusing. Every moment you capture will be razor sharp.
Unwavering exceptional performance
Flawless metering and onboard intelligence
The D600 delivers consistently beautiful images and HD videos, thanks to Nikon’s intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II. Its 2,016 pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and the scene colors, all within the time it takes to press the shutter release button. That data is then referenced against an onboard image database for consistently accurate exposures, auto white balance, i-TTL flash and subject-tracking autofocus performance.
Cinema-quality HD video projects
Pro-level 1080p HD video recording features
Nikon is committed to developing HD-SLRs that empower and inspire filmmakers and video enthusiasts, and the D600 is proof of that commitment. Shoot 1080p HD videos with selectable frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression. Bend time with 720p HD at 60p, 50p or 30p for ultra-smooth video playback of fast moving subjects, or create slow-motion footage during post processing. Maintain your creative vision with manual exposure control, fulltime AF with face-priority and subject tracking, dedicated inputs for a stereo mic and headphones, still image exporting, and much more. Enhance all that with the dramatic perspectives and depth-of-field control of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses, and you’ll dazzle with every video project.
Wi-Fi camera control and mobile photo sharing
Optional WU-1b wireless mobile adapter
With Wi-Fi compatibility, the D600 makes sharing photos even easier. Connect the optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi enabled device. Use your smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend.

The 24 megapixel files take some getting used to, esp after the 12 and 16 megapixel files I was working with before. I will say, a wedding photographer does NOT need a D800. There's no way to quickly and efficiently handle files that large. 36 megapixels is way overkill. If you are doing commercial or landscape photography, sure, knock yourself out with the D800.
The D600 feels a lot different in my hands compared to the D700. It is heavier than I expected, but still lighter than the D700. The quiet shutter function is awesome for church ceremonies. I did buy an off brand grip to help balance the weight when using large lenses.
The dynamic range is like nothing I've ever seen. I have photos from my last wedding that have beautiful details in the highlights and shadows that would not have been in shots taken by either of the previous cameras I've used.
The time lapse function is pretty neat. I tried it out this past weekend and really enjoyed it.
I have not had any issues with dust or oil spots. Knock on wood. The focus is great, the resolution is great, and all in all it makes beautiful photos in a very compact and lightweight body. I am going to wait a while to see what Nikon decides to come up with, but I anticipate I will be buying another one of these this fall.
There are two kinds of spots -
1. round spots - These look more like oil/liquid spots. I spotted 8-9 spots.
2. irregular spots - These are more like when bugs get smashed on to your windshield and leave nasty spots(may be dust?). I spotted 4-5 spots.
I am planning to dust cleaning today to see if it get rid of some spots.
I have owned multiple Canon cameras (5dmk3, 7d, t2i) and I never had to wet clean the sensor. I know multiple folks commented that dust accumulation is very natural but believe me dust/oil spots that you see on some d600 images they don't seem natural so please stop defending a product which has a possible design defect, it doesn't make us less of a fan of Nikon or for that matter of any brand.
If you ask me I will probably keep this camera considering all other good things. I know how to wet clean the sensor. But if this problem is recurring every few hundred shots after sensor cleaning (dry and wet) I will choose to send it back.
[UPDATE 16Oct2013] After a month of using the D600 _after_ Nikon Service updated the Shutter for me, I am seeing a few more spots on the sensor. I haven't shot a lot of photos -- maybe in the 200 - 300 range, however, there are now a handful of substantial spots on the sensor once again--even with the fix. So if they truly did replace the shutter with that used in the D610, I'm not optimistic about the D610 nor am I'm relaxed about owning the D600.
[UPDATE 16Sept2013] I just received my D600 back from Nikon Service. During the NAB in Las Vegas earlier this year, a Nikon Rep told me that they had a "quiet" service practice for D600. She said "Send it in". I didn't bother doing that until early September of this year and got it back 10 days later. They paperwork said "clean sensor, upgrade firmware" so I was concerned. I called and the Service Tech said, yes there's more to it than that, but he wasn't allowed to say--but he did say "They fixed the problem". After a lengthy test shoot of the Sky, timelapse of nature and several "party" shots, I see Zero Dust/Grease whatever on the pictures. I believe this camera is now fixed. Thank you Nikon and of course Amazon for the best Customer Service ever!
[UPDATE 29Nov2012] The 4th unit is now going back to Amazon. This D600 was oil-free and I was very happy for the first 100 or so images. Then excessive dust started to appear. I "let it go" for about a week and it seems to have settled down. I called Nikon who told me I could not clean the sensor myself--it had to be sent to a Nikon Authorized service center. But my experience with Nikon service while good, is also VERY time consuming. So this unit is now on its way back to Amazon and another one has been ordered. Let's hope we get both no oil and little to no dust on this one. (Fingers crossed)
I'm on the 4th D600 from Amazon.com (gotta love their fantastic customer service).
The other 3 units had Oil spots either right after shooting or came with oil already on the sensor.
This unit seemed okay for the first 40 or so images, and then I saw some particles of dust (not oil) on the sensor. I blew it away and shot another "roll" and saw even more dust and what I believe to be 1 or possibly 2 tiny oil spots (the prior units had larger oil spots).
Regardless of how good the image quality is, if you can't depend on the product to product pictures vs dusty images (or oily images) it isn't worth your time.
My pure speculation is that some units have oil and some have excessive dust. Oil being caused by Nikon assembly workers over-oiling a poorly designed shutter mechanism, and dust if they did not over oil the shutter mechanism. So you get one bad feature or the other.
The other camera I have is a D800e and it now has 1 oil spot after roughly 1000 images. I may send it in to be cleaned, assuming no more appear. But this being the 4th D600 I'm going to conclude, based on what I've read here and from my own experience, that this model is definitely NOT ready for prime-time.
I would suggest you put off your purchase until either they replace this module with a new one (one that has the problems resolved) or you invest in a cleaning kit and become what most consumers are not, a camera cleaning expert.
Oh, and those who keep saying "are you sure its oil and not dust" please move along until you actually own one of these models, you're boring the rest of us who are actually trying to make this camera with great potential, work.
This camera produces some of the best pictures of any Nikon yet. Sure the D800/e has more pixels, but a 50% increase in those pixels makes your computer run slow as it reads/processes them. Plus, the camera itself slows down as it processes 36 megapixels (again on the D800). This camera has just the right mix of features.
So unless you're a pro, this should be your camera if you're a Nikon shooter (or get he new CANON 5D Mk III if you prefer CANON, both are great).
This is a full-frame camera, not a Pro Camera. It has all the scene modes you've used from the D7000 but gives you that great depth of field results you normally only see in an FX (full frame) model.
Likewise you can use Program/Pro mode, or Aperture or Shutter Priority modes and pull fantastic shots.
The Good: FX sensor, 24 megapixels is good enough, more would be a negative feature, fits all your Nikon lens, but start buying FX (non-DX) lenses if you haven't already; it has a fast enough shutter speed and great colors.
The not so good: The focus sensors have been purposely crippled on this camera. Instead of using an FX autofocus array from the D4, D800 or other cameras, they use the same autofocus array used on the D7000 DX camera. This cheat means that you basically have a small area in the center of the view finder in which focus occurs. While this is really offensive to me as a consumer, (shame on you Nikon) it isn't a show-stopper. It too borders on "good enough" but I do find it irritating in some situations. So while focus is perhaps the biggest shortcoming feature, it shouldn't stop you from selecting this over other models.
Last, like all 2012 Nikon cameras, this model too tends to overexpose its photos when not using matrix metering (e.g., spot metering). So I tend to have to shoot at -0.3ev all the time. The more I use the matrix metering however, I'm learning to know when the camera will work with it vs spot metering. The over exposure that can occur in spot metering (I'm speculating) was done to accommodate those "ultra stupid hi ISO" features. If you want to shoot in the dark, get a camera with night vision.
So unless you're a professional, get the D600, you'll love it. If you're a pro... keep your D3 or get the D4 or for B-roll consider the D800.
One caveat: The original D600 I received was wonderful until I hit about 100 photos. Then a bunch of oil spots on the "sensor" (actually on the anti-alias filter) started to appear. Apparently if the person or machine on the assembly line didn't have their coffee, they might have over-oiled the shutter release on your camera. Now, it is easy to clean off dust particles, but oil is problematic. If you look around, you'll see two types of users writing about this issue: Those who received a good unit that doesn't show the problem and who falsely conclude that is never happens, and those who are having the issue. To see if yours has the issue, shoot a photo of the blue sky, and look at it on your computer. If you see little grey or slightly dark orbs, you have the problem. I originally had zero, then about 5, then it went to over 20 spots. One or two is nothing--it won't show up on your prints or elsewhere. But one or two dozen, that's a problem
The great thing about getting your cameras from Amazon.com is you can return/exchange it for another unit. And that's what I did.
