With the release of the D800, Nikon users were left wondering whether the new camera was an upgraded version of the outgoing D700, or a new product all together. The latest rumor going around is that Nikon will be announcing another full-frame DSLR in the summer: The D600. The D600 will be Nikon’s new entry-level full-frame DSLR offering, placing it bellow the D800. Some of the other features that are rumored to be in the D600 are dual SD card slots, a built-in time-lapse function, in-camera RAW editing and possibly GPS. There is no information on the resolution of the alleged D600’s sensor.
Though this early rumor is quite vague, it would make sense for Nikon to offer another full-frame camera to the lineup. It will be interesting to see if this rumored D600 replaces the current D300s, making the Nikon lineup consist of 3 DX cameras and 3 FX cameras. The new lineup would potentially look like this:
DX Cropped Sensor Cameras
- D3200- Entry-level
- D5200 – Mid-range
- D7200 – High-end
FX Full-Frame Cameras
- D600 – Entry-level
- D800 – Mid-range – High-megapixel
- D4 – High-end
Is this Nikon’s future DSLR product map? We’ll just have to wait and see.
