Here is Nikon's F-mount, providing the D600 with 62 available FX NIKKOR lenses. This is one of the largest collections of lenses available for any camera, providing you with several lenses that will work for whatever situation you will encounter. 





nikon_d600_sensor.JPG
Capturing the images for the D600 is Nikon's 24.3-Megapixel, Full Frame FX-format CMOS imaging sensor. The D600 is the smallest Nikon to feature this large sensor, making it easier to carry and operate the camera; especially designed for those who are on the edge about upgrading to a Full Frame camera. Nikon has also included a self-cleaning sensor system to make sure that the sensor is free of dust and dirt, and your images are free of blemishes (Note: see a recent service advisory about dust getting on the image sensor by clicking here.).

The power behind this CMOS sensor comes from the EXPEED 3 image processor. Handling all of the data and camera functions, the EXPEED 3 processor allows for frame rates of up to 5.5fps at full resolution, and keeps image noise to a minimum throughout the standard 100-6400 ISO range. This is combined with the camera's autofocus system featuring 39 focus points, 9 cross-type sensors and and 7 center focus points, ensures the fastest and most accurate AF possible. All three of these great systems combine to give you all of the speed and accuracy you need to capture amazing images.

The included popup flash unit gives you the assurance of always having a powerful and useful flash available at all times. It has a range of GN 12/39ft. (m/f) at ISO 100, allowing you stay back a ways from your subjects. Even in a situation when you think you will not need it, it can work wonders as a fill in bright situations. It also works with Nikon's i-TTL system, allowing it to command and control up to 2 groups of remote flashes for much more sophisticated lighting setups.





nikon_d600_hotshoe.jpgThe hot shoe on top of the camera allows for the addition of an external flash unit or other any other accessories that work with the sync and data contacts. Other than an external flash, accessories like the ME-1 Stereo Microphone, that require power or data from the camera itself work seamlessly to improve the camera's quality or capabilities.

On the lens are the controls for Focus (Manual/Auto Or full Manual) and VR (Vibration reduction, On or Off). 

















nikon_d600_controls_top.JPG












The top right of the camera features the Sub-Command dial at the top, Shutter release coupled with the power switch, movie recording button, exposure compensation and metering buttons and the Digital Control Panel. Here you can see all of the camera's settings and some other information about its operation.
















nikon_d600_mode_dial.JPG
On top of the left side of the camera is mode dial. Here you can quickly change the camera's shooting mode from any of the manual and automatic modes to one of the two user defined modes that you can set for your favorite places or scenarios. The button on top keeps the dial locked in place until pressed, stopping you from accidentally changing your shooting mode. Underneath the mode dial is the shutter control dial, featuring all of your continuous, remote and self-timer settings. The button to the bottom left of the dial releases it to allow you to make changes.

Under those you will find the Menu, Picture Control/Retouch, Help/Protect/WB, Image quality and size/Zoom in, ISO sensitivity/Zoom out/Thumbnail/2-button reset buttons.
