RCT SCORE 7.8 / 10

RealClear Summary


Nikon's D600 brings "full frame" photography down into a price point (roughly $2,000) that was unheard of just a few years ago. For the uninitiated, a full frame digital SLR offers an image sensor sized like 35mm film (bigger sensor = more light = better images). It's the kind of camera professionals demand and Nikon has brought that quality down to a price that some consumers may find appealing.

The 24-megapixel D600 boasts HD video recording at 1080p, 5.5 frames per second burst shooting and an ISO range up to 25,600. It works with the large family of Nikkor lenses for both full frame and APS-C sized d-SLRs.

Reviewers were uniformally high on the D600, lauding its size, design, image quality and performance. If you have the means, it should top your list for high-end camera of choice.

Great Value
This fence-straddling consumer-meets-pro DSLR is a cracker that offers great value for money. Clever, Nikon, very clever. You'll want to pat the D600 on its camera-y head too.

Great Camera, But Lacks Some Features
The Nikon D600 is essentially a D7000 with an FX sensor, but lacks some of the extra features found in the Canon EOS 6D.
