Nikon unveils lightweight, full-frame D600 DSLR — hands-on and low-light samples videoBy Sharif Sakr posted Sep 13th 2012 12:01AMHands-OnNikon unveils D600 fullframe DSLR 24MP, lightweight, 2,400 handson videoWe’ve been watching out for the D600 since images leaked a couple of months ago, and today it’s been made official: a full-frame DSLR that’s priced ever-so-slightly closer to the reach of mortals read: “high-end enthusiasts” who perhaps can’t claim everything off their tax. At just shy of $2,100 update: €2,150 in Europe, the 24-megapixel camera’s US list price is significantly lower than that of the 36-megapixel D800, and undercuts Canon’s rival EOS 5D Mark III and Sony’s brand new full-frame Alpha A99.What’s more, aside from the resolution, you’re getting something pretty close to the D800 — including a weather- and dust-resistant magnesium alloy build, fast Exspeed III processor, and AF that works down to f/8 — but here it’s all contained in a body that sheds a full 15 percent off the D800’s weight. It feels great to hold a full-frame DSLR like this, which is barely any heavier or more conspicuous than an APS-C shooter like the D7000.Nikon is also making a big deal out of the fact that the D600 handles wireless transfers and triggers using the new WU-1b widget, which is identical to the familiar WU-1a we reviewed on the D3200 except that it plugs into the camera’s USB port rather than the HDMI port. There’s an Android app to allow your mobile device to communicate with the camera, and an iOS app is set to land by the end of September.Read on a few more initial impressions and a quick look at the D600’s high-ISO performance
