Nikon D600

Okay. I purchased a Nikon D600 full frame camera during the Holiday break. And wow! This camera is amazing! My previous DLSR was the Nikon D90 and the D600 is quite an upgrade to the D90. It’s 24.3 megapixel sensor is simply amazing! I’ve been having fun with this camera and shooting at ISO 3200 and the shots have been coming out crystal clear!Image

The above image was my first shot from the camera. I had my Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 G lens on the camera. It was shot at ISO 3200 at 1/60th of a second at f/ 1.8. This first image just blew me away! Awe… Josie, she’s soooooooo cute!

So, I took the camera down to my family’s Christmas gift exchange and shot more pictures. All of these shots are straight out of camera. Yes, I imported into Lightroom but no cropping, no adjusting…


Josie and her cousin Ethan – ISO 3200 1/320 sec at f/1.8, 85mm


Flying Josie with Aunt Ashley – IS0 3200 1/80 sec at f/2.0, 50 mm

The sensor is stunning. The only issue I have with the camera is it’s 39 autofocus points. They are all in the center of the sensor. So when you shoot you subjects of both sides of the frame, a shot looks like this…


I guess I can live with that. I’ll just have to pre-focus my image and then slightly move the camera or manually focus. That will be something I’ll have to learn.

But I was surprised to see the Nikon D600 is the second (or third best DSLR out there) behind the Nikon D800 and Nikon D800E in sensor quality. It’s sensor even bests the Canon 5D Mark III!

I am really really happy with this camera!
