First Photos of Nikon’s D600 Entry-Level Full Frame Leaked

Entry-level full frame rumors are certainly getting their time in the spotlight today. Immediately following rumors that the 7D Mark II might become the Canon FF entry-level we’ve all been waiting for, we now have the first pictures of Nikon’s D600. Initial rumors about the entry-level full frame, which is supposed to be the true sequel to the D700, were met with significant reservations, but these pictures seem to leave no more doubt that the camera really is in the works.

New specs were also leaked for the shooter, including: 24.7-megapixel full frame sensor, 3.2-inch 921K dot LCD, built-in AF motor, weather-sealed body, ISO range 100-6400 (expandable to 50-25,600), 39 AF points (9 cross-type), same exposure comp as the D800 and both Full HD video (30p, 25p and 24p) and standard HD video (60p, 50p, 30p, 25p).

Even with a leak this big, rumors are still just rumors, and will remain so until Nikon either confirms or denies them. But it does look like the SLR camera market will be getting a serious shake up come September. For a more comprehensive overview of the specs, be sure to check out the full list over on Nikon Rumors.

    I was just going to buy Sony NEX 7, now I am going to have to wait and see D600. How is this camera compare to NEX 7?

  • Jared Monkman

    I don’t think you can even compare the two.  The sensor sizes are the distinction.

  • Crystal R. Pace

    the D800 and both Full HD video (30p, 25p and 24p) and standard HD video (60p, 50p, 30p, 25p).

    The size of that screams “pentamirror”. Which explains the price.

  • Chris Newhall

    So, correct me if I’m wrong. In picking this vs. the D800, the D800 would make a good landscape/studio camera and this would make a better (cheaper) all-around camera (based off the assumption that the specs listed here are true)?

  • Paul Eliasberg

    Here’s hoping there will be some cheap D700s up for grabs sometime soon…

  • Chris Newhall

    But if I’m using mostly autofocus wouldn’t a pentamirror actually work better?

  • Mansgame

    I want!  Who needs a 4 year old D700 if this can get better ISO AND video?

  • Markus WET

    Might be worth upgrading from a D7000 … let’s wait for the first reviews :) Either way: I’m thrilled!

  • Aaron David Cole

    I was thinking that myself.

  • Patrick Niddrie

    If you wait for the reviews, you’ll be way on the bottom of the waitlist!

  • Markus WET

    As for now I’m perfectly happy with my D7000 so I really don’t care if I have to wait 6 months or more after the launch :D Also: I can save up some money in that time span ^^

  • Paul Eliasberg

    Just because it’s ‘old’ doesn’t mean it doesn’t take good pictures. My favourite camera is still the FM2 I bought thirty years ago. Upgrading from a D7000 to a D700 means I finally don’t have to take that bloody crop factor into account anymore.

  • Chris Newhall

    You can’t compare the differences in image quality over the course of just a couple years between an analog and a digital camera. Of course your FM2 still takes great pictures, the hardware isn’t what actually records the image like it does on a D700. If you go back a few years before the D700 digital image quality was terrible, film hasn’t changed much over 30 years.

  • Mansgame

     I’m not saying the D700 doesn’t take great pictures, but with my money, why would I spend $2000 (new price) on a 4 year old camera when I can get the same thing for $1600 like the D600 is rumored to be?  Even if the D700 drops down to $1400 used, again, it makes no sense to buy the older technology.  

    I think the D700’s price is artificially high because there are no real alternatives yet (D800 is not a direct upgrade) and because of the earthquake, it has hung around longer than it should have at high pricepoint it’s at now. 

  • Mansgame

     I’ve never been on a waitlist for anything but if this thing is $1500-$1600, it’ll be my first time. 

  • Chris Newhall

    My guess would place this more in the 5D Mark II range ($2000-2500). $1500-1600 is just too close to the D7000’s price.

  • Henry

    Looks like it might be time to upgrade from my D70

  • Roland

    Don’t listen too much that made you hesitate from what you have planned. Get it & start shooting if your budget is right!!!

  • EagleS

    u cant compare the two exactly, one is DSLR, one is mirror-less camera
    now if u want a lighter and smaller caera that will have the similar specs od a DSLR buy the sony but if u want a real pro or semi-pro camera buy a DSLR the main diffrenc bettwen the two is image sensor size and pixel size, ensor on d600 will be (full frame)36x24mm and sony’s is 15.6 x 23.5 (APS-C) so sonz has a smaller sensor size which means that when u try to put all of those 24MP in aps-c sensor siye the pixel size will decrease and when it does the image quality gets lowerd esppecialy in low light and will have a worser dynamic range so d600 will beat sony in terms of sensor size, pixel size, dynamic range, and bit per pixel, it mean it will have a smaller number of colours and the photos on d600 will be more vivid and natural, the d600 will probably have 14 bit per pixel while sony 12 bpp

  • EagleS

    lol i just saw how many writing mistakes i made sorry for that and also the d600 will have more lens available a lot more
