Nikon D600 full-frame camera to be released September 18 in Canada
Photography enthusiasts who use Nikon's DSLR cameras generally start out using the company's DX models. With a smaller image sensor, they're more compact, lighter, and—most importantly—way cheaper than their full-frame, FX-format cousins.
But after taking lots of pictures and accumulating a number of FX lenses, many prosumers eventually begin eyeing Nikon's full-frame lineup.
Nikon has just made it a tad easier to make the leap from DX to FX. Today (September 13), the company introduced the new D600, its smallest, lightest, and least pricey full-frame DSLR yet.
It'll come with a 24.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100 to 6400 (expandable from 52 to 25,600), full HD (1080p) video-recording capability, a 39-point autofocus system, and a 0.052-second shutter release.
Most significantly, the D600 body will sell for $2,179.95. The next step up, the older D700, goes for $2,499.95, while the newer D800 costs $3,149.95. The D600 will also be available in a kit with the AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens for $2,749.95.
The D600 will hit Nikon Canada dealers on September 18 and will no doubt pique the interest of many enthusiasts looking to get into full-frame photography.
