After months of rumors and speculation, Nikon has finally announced its new full frame camera, the D600. Now the smallest, lightest, least expensive full frame DSLR on the market.
The D600 is the company’s “entry level” full frame DSLR, featuring a 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 50-25600), a 39-point autofocus system (9 cross-type points), 5.5 fps continuous shooting, dual SD card slots, a viewfinder with 100% coverage, built-in HDR, 1080p HD video recording with full-time AF, a 3.2-inch LCD, all in a weather sealed magnesium alloy body.
The D600 will also accept the new WU-1b Wireless Adapter – a $60 dongle that allows photographers to connect wirelessly to the DSLR. Paired with a special app for smartphones, it allows users to remotely fire the shutter, transfer images to and from their phones, and quickly share them online (through the phones). It has a range of about 50 feet.
The D600 will be available September 18th, 2012, and have a price tag of $2,099 body only, or $2699. with 24-85mm F3.5-5.6 lens.
