Nikon's D600 camera surfaced way back in April (2012), but a new leak has exposed information about it, not all of which fits with previously revealed details.
Set to be a smaller sibling, of sorts, to the D800
, it will use a 24.7-megapixel FX sensor, a 3.2-inch LCD on the back, an HDMI output, and a 39-point autofocus system.
The camera's maximum ISO sensitivity (“film” speed) is massive as well, topping at Hi-2 ISO 25,600, well beyond the 1600 needed for shooting in the dark. Speaking of which, the 'regular’ range is 100-6,400.
That said, the product will be a good option for those who won't want to pay $2999.95 / €2,289 or more (D600 will ship for $1,500 / €1198).
Not exactly the smallest price ever, but quite decent under the circumstances.
There is one problem though: the camera doesn't have GPS, which means no global coordinate labeling function for photographs.
Shipments will begin next month (September 2012), according to Nikon Rumors
