Yesterday, Nikon Inc. announced the 24.3-megapixel (MP) D600, a camera designed to deliver the image quality and performance benefits of a full frame FX-format sensor.
The Nikon D600 gives users the ability to record Full HD at varying frame rates and resolutions including 1080p video at 30, 25 or 24p, and 720p video at 60, 50 and 30p. When shooting HD video at the highest quality setting, up to 20 minutes can be recorded, or up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds in normal quality for added convenience when shooting static shots such as interviews and events.
For monitoring and streaming applications, the image can be displayed on the LCD screen while simultaneously shown on another monitor through the HDMI, with or without shooting data. What's more, the D600 adds the ability to transfer uncompressed video via the HDMI connection, which can then be routed to a digital recorder or similar device.To accompany the D600, Nikon has also announced the optional WU-1b Wireless Adapter that allows users to connect wirelessly to the camera and share images taken with the D600 through their mobile device to their social circles, as well as send and download images from their camera to a compatible device. A companion Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility application for Android™ based mobile devices is also available at no additional cost. Furthermore, an application for the iPhone® and iPad® mobile digital devices will be available on September 15, 2012.
The Nikon D600 will be available on September 18, 2012 for the suggested retail price (SRP) of $2,099.95*, for body only, or with the AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR for the SRP of $2,699.95*.
