The Nikon D600 digital SLR camera offers 24-megapixel full-frame sensor, the SLR digital camera costs about $2,100 on the market (body only). Although the D600 is classified as an entry level DSLR but at the first glance it looks more professional than any other digital cameras at its category.

The Body of Nikon D600 Digital SLR Camera

The dimension looks smaller than the D800; however it is a little bit bigger than the D7000. Overall, the digital camera weighs about 2 pounds which is still fairly handy. The lightweight magnesium-aluminum alloy for the casing, only applies on the front of the camera, it reduces the cost but still offering a high quality. Nikon has put together this excellent mix of materials. The controls on the back are arranged so that the Nikon D600 can operate very quickly with the thumbs of both hands. For example, the requirements for the ISO sensitivity and white balance are changed instantly. Top left of the top plate sits a handy mode dial that is secured with a lock to prevent accidental adjustment. The right half of the upper side is dominated by a large-area status display, which can be illuminated with a light turning on the main switch. In use, the Nikon D600 is very handy despite its size. The viewfinder shows a great and pleasant bright picture. Even an electronic level can show itself, then the exposure scale displays at the bottom of the viewfinder if the camera is tilted to the right or left.

Based on its equipments, the Nikon D600 is clearly not only aimed professional photographers but also amateurs. The D600 can also be operated as an intelligent full automatic. Then, the photographer needs to worry about anything. Once the digital camera detects the subject situation, it sets itself to one. Demanding photographers on the other hand will find that the D600 is virtually anything your heart desires or requires each situation. Whether an automatic program, the possibility of semi-automatic or even manual exposure or exposure bracketing -. The equipment list of the D600 is so extensive that you have to look far for a gap. There are no restrictions on the D600 board flash, with the camera seamlessly integrates with the "Creative Lighting System" - the on-board flash can control as master wirelessly connected system flashes. The flash functions of the D600 are very diverse, second-curtain flash on missing any more than the ability to slow sync or a separate flash exposure. In comparison to big sister D800, which has a flash sync speed of 1/250 second, have to make do with the D600 with 1/200 second - a small restriction, which is thought to play a role rare in practice. 

Only at very intensive study of the technical data indicates where Nikon has set the D600 compared to the D800. About the light meter, the RGB sensor has to get on with the D600 still lush 2016 pixels. Nikon has also saved the auto focus of the D600; the camera essentially takes the AF module, the D7000 with 39 sensors (including 9 cross-type sensors). The sheer number of measurement points focus has proven in practice always be sufficient. Not always practicable, however, is the arrangement of the measuring fields: you jostle with the compromised by an APS-C camera AF module but badly in the center of the full-frame viewfinder. If the desired point of focus at the edges of the crop, the camera must first centrally focused on capturing the moment and then swung at half-pressed, triggers are - a process especially wide open telephoto lenses the subject can quickly than desired slide from the focal plane. Even when tracking a subject loses the AF contact with the subject long before this has arrived at the edge.

In addition, the D600 can about their HDMI jack to transfer the uncompressed data stream, such as on a professional recording device. As usual with Nikon, the D600 is not stingy with editing functions in playback mode. Images can not only rotate, crop, or, they can also be retrofitted with effects or optimized. For example, lightens the D-Lighting function on even afterwards tapered shade. The Nikon D600 accepted all Nikkor AF lenses, including older models without focus motor.

Conclusion on Nikon D600 Review

The Nikon D600 is perfect for serious amateur photographers, but quite palatable for professional photographers. Whether resolving power balance between noise reduction and image details or input and output dynamics: The image quality of the Nikon D600 is excellent up to ISO 400, and even at ISO 3,200 or more as well. The high resolution of the camera does however utilize only if the D600 is equipped with adequate lens. However, the D600 is not quite as good for action photography, even if it is with a burst rate of about 5.5 frames per second.
