A Professional Photographer’s Thoughts on the New Nikon D600 Rumor by Leo Huang
There have been a lot of rumours floating around about the potentially new entry-level full frame camera from Nikon. This is just after the Nikon D4 and D800/E have been released.
Many complaints that they can’t afford the D4, and that D800/E is just too many megapixels and the files are too big, the camera is too slow etc… etc…
So I’m not sure this rumour has been cooked up by some angry Nikon Fanboy who wishes there was a lower-end FX Body from Nikon.
Although for me personally, a cheaper FX body, would serve great as a back-up body to my D800, as now I’m using a D7000 as a back-up. I am against the idea of this camera as I don’t want them to develop a camera on the basis they want to fill in a gap in the market just to increase sales.
Nikon have shown us they can have killer ISO performance and an incredibly good fps rate/buffer on the D4. Equally they have shown us they can create a camera which pumps out the best of the best images with 36.3mp and great dynamic range. The Nikon D600 just seems like a camera which they’re putting out to make sales, and not necessarily be the best, game changing equipment to own.
The D600 is rumoured to be an FX sensor, but it could still come out as a DX sensor. I think Nikon should focus on filling market gaps with DX equipment, and push out a replacement for the D300s. What are your thoughts?
