A few weeks ago, a rumor came out regarding the Nikon D600, a new full-frame camera from Nikon that would be released sometime during the summer. A new list of specifications for the rumored camera has just come out with some really interesting inclusions. Some of the specifications, such as the 24-megapixel full-frame sensor, dual-SD card slots and built-in time-lapse feature were mentioned in my initial Nikon D600 rumor post. The newer Nikon D600 rumors add a 5fps burst rate, 39 Autofocus points, eye-fi card support and in-camera retouching features. All of this will be packaged in a camera that is said to cost around $1500.
Some of the other specifications rumored to be in the Nikon D600:
- Buit-in HDR
- Auto DX crop mode
- New battery grip
- Pop-up flash with a 1/250 second flash sync speed
- Function button
- User custom settings options (U1 and U2)
- HD video
With the way these specifications are looking right now, the Nikon D600 is not only going to be a camera that will potentially shake up the full-frame DSLR market, it will also have a huge effect on the DX cropped-sensor DSLR market. I can’t wait to see how this turns out, and what other camera companies will do in response to the Nikon D600.
