Last month, we reported on a rumor that Nikon’s upcoming D610 DSLR will simply be a D600 clone that fixes the sensor speck issue that some owners grumbled about a while back. Now, a newly leaked set of camera specs seems to confirm that initial report.

How Far We’ve Come: Comparing the ISO Capabilities of Nikon’s D70 and D600

After Toronto-based artist Kyle Clements put together his popular D600 sensor dust time-lapse, he began receiving many questions about how his new camera stacked up against the D70 he used up until that point.

Nikon D600 Gets 100% HDMI Output with New Firmware Update

nikond600

When Nikon launched the D600, the DSLR was advertised as being on par with the Nikon D800 in the realm of video recording. There was soon grumbling, however, when owners noticed that HDMI output from the camera was crippled: there were black bars around the frame that weren’t present in D800 footage. People immediately began pointing fingers at Nikon, accusing the company of intentionally hamstringing the D600 in various ways so that it wouldn’t cannibalize sales of the D800 too badly.

Well, Nikon heard the complaints, and has now addressed them by releasing a firmware update for the D600 that does away with the black bars.

nikond600

In October 2012, LensRentals owner Roger Cicala reported that the Nikon D600 seems to collect more sensor dust than other DSLRs. Other owners began reporting the same thing, and different theories began emerging to explain the origins of the annoying specks.

When Imaging Resource reached out to Nikon for comment, it was told that Nikon customers are encouraged to have their cameras serviced if the dust becomes “bothersome.” Nikon finally issued an official advisory this past Wednesday regarding the issue, but its message is the same.

If you’ve recently purchased a Nikon D600 at its standard body-only retail price of $2,000, you might want to stop reading this post lest you suddenly find yourself filled with manufacturer-induced buyers remorse.

Some Nikon D600 DSLRs Not Closing to the Apertures They’re Supposed To

A little earlier today, we reported on how Sohail Mamdani of BorrowLenses had discovered that one particular Nikon D600 he was testing was consistently overexposing photographs by two stops.

Nikon: Get a Cleaning if You’re Bothered by the D600′s Sensor Dust

The whole situation surrounding Nikon’s D600 dust issue is turning out to be eerily similar to Apple’s iPhone 5 purple haze problem. In both situations, there are people who are very bothered by the “flaw”, people who wonder what all the fuss is about and believe the complaints to be overblown, and a slow response from the companies. Now Nikon is also doing exactly what Apple did: respond to complaints saying that what users are seeing is normal.

Theory: Nikon D600 Sensor Dust Problem Caused by Scratches in the Mirror Box?

It has been widely reported that the new Nikon D600 full-frame DSLR suffers from a higher-than-normal amount of dark spots appearing on the sensor. Yesterday we shared one photographer’s time-lapse video that demonstrates that the issue occurs right out of the box without any lens swaps.

Photographer Daniel Gaworski has been experiencing the same problem, and decided to take a closer look at his D600. He discovered that his camera’s shutter curtain contains scratch marks on the bottom flap (see above), particularly in one corner of the camera.
