Nikon D600 First Look: Is this DSLR a D800 Killer?
They say a picture is worth a 1,000 words. But what if the scene you’re viewing can’t be described so easily–should you switch the camera to HD Video mode? That’s what I do.
Serious photographers who are looking for one of the best values in HD-SLRs have lots of choices these days when it comes to shooting with dual-personality, interchangeable lens cameras. And the new kid on the block, the Nikon D600, is about to take center stage. It’s a relatively affordable, well-built, full frame, camera that’s nearly as comfortable shooting Full HD 1080p video as it is capturing fast, sharp, high-speed action photos that can be printed at 24 x 36 inches without degradation.
I got a chance to handle one behind the scenes at a Nikon Preview event on Sept. 12, 2012, about 15 hours before the world found out (more than enough time to stop drueling!) My thoughts, and a few close peeks at the camera are contained in the following video:
Now that I have one in hand, expect some in-depth feedback on the camera with its new kit lens, the Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 G VR lens. And perhaps a few videos that have a lot to say.
