    Fantastic Camera, Bad Quality Control by Nikon, October 12, 2012
    By

    WHO IS THIS CAMERA FOR?

    1.) More advanced photographers moving from DX/crop format to full frame (assuming they already own FX glass or plan to buy at least a couple FX lenses with the D600.)
    2.) Photographers who want a second body to accompany their pro body as back-up.
    3.) Nikon D300, D300s and D700 users who want better ISO performance, much better resolution and dynamic range and won’t miss a couple of the pro features of the D300, D300s and D700.
    4.) Patient beginners with very deep pockets who understand it’s going to take more than “Auto” mode to create beautiful photos. Open yourself up to RAW.

    WHO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA TO:

    1.) Beginners with no $$$$. You’re gonna need money. Lots of money. Forget the kit lens that comes with the D600. You’re going to need something better to make this camera really shine.
    2.) People who only want to shoot JPEGs. Yeah… you can shoot beautiful JPEGs with it, but that too requires adjusting settings. JPEGs can be unforgiving as opposed to RAW. Some might really disagree with me on this point, but I’ve known too many people who bought DSLRs and were surprised when the camera was taking unsatisfactory pictures. It’s not the camera, it’s the user!
    3.) DX/crop sensor photographers who don’t own any FX glass. Get yourself FX lenses first. No matter how much you’re tempted, it makes much more sense. Trust me.
    4.) Anyone expecting $3,000 + features for $2,100.00.

    SHOULD YOU BUY THE D600 or the D800???

    Depends on what you’re shooting, why you’re shooting it and how much money you have.

    D800 = Pro 51 AF point module vs. 39 AF points – slightly more accurate/faster focus and a tad more viewfinder coverage
    D800 = 36 megapixels vs. 24 megapixels – slightly more resolution
    D800 = Up to 9 consecutive shots for HDR vs. 3 consecutive shots – better HDR
    D800 = Shutter life of 200,000 vs 150,000 – longer life span
    D800 = Teeny tiny bit more dynamic range
    D800 = 1/250 flash sync speed vs. 1/200

    D600 = 5.5 FPS vs 4 FPS – better for sports and wildlife
    D600 = Lighter and less pixel density – easier to shoot hand-held with slower shutter speeds (Good for nightime and daytime photography. Less chance of camera shake/motion blurr)and easier to carry during long hikes.
    D600 = Just a teeny tiny tad better at high ISO in low light
    D600 = $1,000 less
    D600 = Smaller file sizes, which means easier file handling.

    There are a few more differences, but both cameras will give you incredible results, both cameras have insane high dynamic range and resolution, and both produce beautiful RAW and JPEG files. If you’re a serious amateur, the D600 is plenty of camera for you. If you’re a beginner, the D800 may be too much camera to start with. By the time you learn the ropes with the D800 (which may take years), the next best thing will be on the market, and you would have wasted $3,000.00 on a camera which you were able to use only 50% of its potential before you trade it in (then again if you’re not the type who must upgrade as soon as something new is on the market, the camera will keep you busy for years). For beginners even the D600 may be a bit too much. Pro landscapes could do just fine with the D600, but may appreciate the 12 more megapixels and 9 shot bracketing (for HDR) when they’re printing large posters. Wildlife photographers may appreciate the faster FPS, slightly better ISO performance and lighter body of the D600. In my opinion the D800 is more of a tripod camera while the D600 is more of a hand-held camera. If you’re still not sure, rent them both and decide that way.

    I WANT TO START OFF WITH THE POSITIVES:

    I absolutely LOVE my new D600. I moved up from a D7000. Although I like the D7000 a lot, the D600 is even better in many ways.

    1.) It has incredible high ISO performance
    2.) Sharp, accurate and fast to focus (much better than the D7000) even in dim light
    3.) Incredible resolution at 24 megapixels
    4.) Very high dynamic range and the color reproduction is beautiful
    5.) Fairly light compared to other Nikon pro bodies
    6.) 5.5 frames per second which is slightly less than the D7000 6 frames per second, but the D600 has a larger buffer.
    7.) Auto-ISO feature is very helpful.
    The list goes on…..

    As far as use and picture quality goes, this camera blows away anything within the same price range, and even some of the slightly older pro bodies that still go for well over $3,000.00. DXO Mark rates this camera as #3 on it’s list, and the only cameras listed above it are the Nikon D800 and Nikon D800E. Believe it or not, the D600 sensor scored higher than the D3s, D4, D700 and all the current (2012) bodies in the Canon line-up. Obviously the D600 lacks some pro features like faster frames per second, an even bigger buffer, a couple of nice…

    Nikon D600 vs D700 vs D800, September 20, 2012
    By 

    So after getting to play with the new camera I wanted to give you a heads up on what I thought about it. I’ve shot over 100,000 images with my d700 and have loved that camera. I’ve rented the D800 for weddings and shot thousands of images with it. I want to tell you how I landed on the D600 as the camera I will use along side of my D700 at weddings. All cameras all full frame so I think it’s pretty fair to compare.

    > D700
    I have loved this camera this has been my workhorse. 70% of my images are taken with the 85 1.4 and D700 combo. It just works. That being said this camera is old and compared to the others it doesn’t stack up very well.

    Pros
    Feel – It has the best feel out of all the cameras because it is a bit taller and fits nicely in my hand.
    AF Mode Button – The placement on the back of the camera means I can switch without looking or taking my eyes of my subject. This is huge!

    Cons
    Lower resolution 12 Megapixels
    No video
    1 card slot
    Older technology

    > D800

    Pros
    Lots of detail in files
    Insane amount of resolution – 36MP
    CF & SD card slot
    HD Video
    Beautiful color

    Cons
    More $ than D600
    HUUUUUUGGGGEEEE files (I think most of my files were 45megs a piece – fast computer & lots of storage space needed)
    No sRaw or smaller raw file option (deal breaker for many, canon’s have this option)
    I didn’t like the feel in my hands as much
    The photos out of this camera look awesome but you better be in focus!

    > D600

    Pros
    Least expensive out of all of the cameras
    High ISO looks better than the D700 to me
    The resolution seems just right 24 megapixels
    The photos out of this camera look awesome!
    2 SD card slots

    Cons
    It doesn’t feel as nice as the D700 in my hands
    That damn AF Mode button is in the weirdest place, I hate it. I wish they kept it where it was on the D700. I use this button constantly
    No CF card slot

    > CONCLUSION

    When it came down to it, the price on the D600 was just right along with the file size. I considered buying a used D700 or a New D800 (instead of renting) but when the D600 was announced I knew it would be the right fit. It was bigger than I thought, which was a good thing because I’ve held the D3200 in my hand and that feels like a toy. This camera is almost as big as the D700. I still have to see in low light how fast the AF performance is on the camera but I am guessing it will be about even with the D700. On Saturday I will have my first full wedding with the camera but all the files that I have seen look incredible. This camera will be a hot seller and people WILL be raving fans. I can guarantee that. Also if you are between the D800 and the D600 and aren’t a landscape photographer, you won’t be disappointed with the resolution of the D600. In real world situations there isn’t much difference once a photo is printed out between 36MP and 24MP.

    A rumor: It is rumored that the images out of the D600 are of a slightly higher quality than the Nikon D4 (the $6000 brand new pro camera). Of course the D4 was built for speed but it is amazing to think that their prosumer camera is on the same quality level or higher as their newest top of the line camera.

    So far I’m extremely happy with my decision to go with the Nikon D600. I hope that will be your choice too!

    > HACKS & UPDATES SINCE ORIGINAL REVIEW WAS WRITTEN (Last updated 10.3.2012)

    Didn’t notice there is no AF-ON button till I went to separate the Autofocus & Shutter button like I had setup on my D700. So I had to reprogram the AE button to be the AF-On button. So far so good.

    It seems like the AF is really snappy in lower light and locks on better than the D700 or D800.

    I went ahead a filmed a minidocumentary of my friend Fearless Jaleel King with it (go and watch it to see the quality of the video – amazing!). Turned out pretty awesome. I used a $30 lapel mic from Radio Shack and a set of cheap headphones.

    Great camera with FATAL FLAW!, November 19, 2012

    This camera has a fatal flaw that is affecting a large number of D600s. Specifically, the camera mechanism that raises the mirror during exposure is flinging lubricant onto the sensor. This is completely unacceptable — for more about this go to: [...]

    Because of this, you get very distinct spotting on your images. The website referenced about mentions that Lensrentals.com had to clean 100% of their D600 bodies to fix the problem.

    For the record, I have three other pro-grade Nikon DSLRs, and 20+ Nikon lenses, and have shot only Nikon for 35 years. I’ve never seen anything like this on my other cameras. My first 200 shots were fine, but the more I took the worse this problem became. Sadly, I purchased the camera for the recent Formula One race in Austin, TX. I took roughly 3,500 shots during the four days I was at the track. I am infuriated that most of these shots will need extensive retouching to fix these flaws.

    If you already own one of these cameras it’s easy to find the problem. Shoot a picture of the sky or a light-colored wall. Underexpose a stop or two to help you see the spots. If you have the issue it will be very apparent.

    And IF you have the issue please return your camera immediately! I don’t have any issues with Nikon on a personal level, but they need to be pressured into fixing this problem — and big companies don’t spring into action unless financial circumstances warrant it. If enough people return their D600s — and if enough people complain and make this problem known — Nikon will be forced to fix the design flaw. Furthermore, they will be less likely to let another design with this flaw slip through into production.

    I hope this review keeps others from going through this same experience!
