Nikonrumors.com reports on a leak that has all the Nikon D600 info we've been waiting for! Check out how this new camera can help you enter into the full-frame market.
First, forgive the quality of the photo above: it's the best we have so far.
But moving on, this is pretty exciting. It's now all but confirmed that the D600 will be a 24MP full-frame camera. The new camera will feature full 1080p recording at 24, 25, and 30fps and up to 60fps at 720p (still no full HD at 60fps, sorry!). Back to the good news... Clean HDMI out!
The D600 can shoot at a very decent 5.5fps, and 100% frame coverage is nice to see while the shutter speed maxes out at 1/4,000 (still plenty respectable). If the 100-6400 native ISO were any better, the D600 might really be too good to be true, but that's not too shabby as it is.
And finally, it'll be compatible with the WU-series wireless transmitters for mobile devices and will use the same EN-EL15 battery as in the D800 and D7000. I think that's awesome because a lot of us will likely use the D600 as a backup somewhere along the way. And if you have a D7000 for the video and a D800 for the image quality, you won't have to worry about which battery goes into which camera. If only this were possible with all cameras like it could with memory cards...
In any case, I think it's safe to say we can't wait for this to actually hit the streets. Forget 'prosumer' v. 'pro.' This camera will be loved by all. If the earlier-guessed $1500-pricepoint is true, there's no telling how many hands this thing can reach...
UPDATE: New price estimate at $2100, according to Nikonrumors.com. Does this affect your purchase decision? Is Nikon asking too much for too little in return?
