The Nikon D600 HD-SLR camera takes advantage of a full-frame FX-format sensor to deliver good quality images, says the company. It claims to pack in the Expeed 3 image processing engine in its compact form factor and allows recording HD videos as well.
The shooter’s 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor works towards capturing detailed pictures even in low-light conditions and its ISO sensitivity ranges from 100 to 6400 which can even be expanded up to 25,600. Its Scene Recognition System determines the scene to be clicked for an improved AF performance, while the Expeed 3 engine processes the captured images and videos. It boasts of a 39-point AF system as well as MultiCam 4800FX AF module and gets ready for use in about 0.13 seconds. The D-SLR device is compatible with DX-format, AF and AF-S Nikkor lenses.
