The D600 is definitely a pro camera. In fact, I've used DX format cameras for some of my pro work (portraits, products and events). It really boils down to the photographer: if you can take pictures people will pay for, then the camera is secondary (in most cases). In today's market, so many people merely share their pictures via Facebook, email, etc., but rarely do customers buy the 3'x2' framed art to hang above their fireplace. Having a full-frame camera is necessary to get that kind of quality, and the D600 is superior in that regard. Also, I should mention that by "pro", I'm not referring to Nat Geo or Time-Life photographers; instead, I'm thinking of most gigs, i.e. weddings, events, portraits, etc. In short, being "pro" for a camera (or photog) is a subjective term, but IMHO, I feel the D600 is a pro camera. Lastly, to really up your game if using the D600, go for one of the prime lenses. I use the Nikon 85mm f1.8 prime, which does an amazing job with my D600...customers rave about the quality, even on enlargements I've had made at 36"x24" (good glass is a big variable in this equation).

This is a perplexing question.

For the purpose of qualifying for the benefits of Nikon Professional Services, as others have already made clear, the answer is no.

For every other purpose, the questions have to be asked: Considered by whom, and what are their criteria?

Some photographers have paid their rent shooting with disposable cameras. Are those cardboard cameras, then, "pro" bodies?

In my opinion, this question is equivalent to people buying "pro" quality golf clubs. It's not the clubs that make you a pro, or in this case, not the camera body. The tool isn't what makes someone a pro or not; it's the person using the tool. If your type of work, and ultimately what you get paid for (which is what makes you a "professional" versus a hobbyist), doesn't dictate that you spend $5,000 for a particular piece of equipment, then why spend the money? If a D600, or whatever other camera body does the job you need it to and you get paid, then you are still a "pro" despite the level of camera you use.

I've shot plenty of commercial projects that have been published in various magazines, including GQ and Sports Illustrated, using nothing more than a D300.

People are too caught up these days thinking they need all the bells and whistles on a camera for it to be a pro camera. A true pro can make great images from just using the manual settings. In short, yes this is a pro camera.

just to know D600 is a semi-pro body, pro cameras cost above 4000$, pro bodies - Nikon D4, Canon 1Dx, Nikon D3x, Canon 1Dc and medium format cameras like Phase One 645 and Pentax 645

while D800, D600, D700, D300s are semi-pro cameras !

This body of D600 is much lower in terms of construction of a D300s, is very similar to a D7000. Will be a D7000 considered someday a pro-camera? I do not believe. The D600 also will not, it only have a fullframe sensor

Couple this new camera body with the best Nikon glass and you will wind up with what I call a "smart pro's system". That is, putting your money in an adequate body and great glass saves money, provides reasonable street cred, and of course, if you have the eye, and luck, will allow fantastic captures. Short answer; in my estimation the D600 will soon be accepted as a "pro body".

I've shot at 2500 ISO on my D600 indoors with very good quality and extremely low noise. I tend to use fast glass (f2) and in those cases, even in dim light indoors, can shoot at about 1600 ISO with a shutter speed around 1/125, which has given some very good results.

You're kind of asking for an apples to oranges comparison, but perhaps this will help.

Before I even bought my D600, I downloaded RAW files from various Web resources to make comparisons with the D800, especially with regard to noise performance at high ISO. I was able to make comparisons because Capture NX2 had early support for the D600.

Even a cursory examination shows the D600 to have superior high-ISO performance. This is as expected because the D600 and D800 represent about the same generation of imaging sensor technology -- i.e., the latest -- in which case the imager with the larger pixel site pitch should have the noise performance advantage, all other things being equal.

Now, you'd think that by the same token the D700 should outperform the D600. This is not as obvious, and I can only guess that this is attributable to the D700 sensor being an already somewhat dated design. Yeah... this is a fast-moving industry.

Don't get me wrong. The RAW files reveal that the D800 has excellent high-ISO/noise performance -- something that's all the more remarkable given it's high sensor resolution. It's just that the D600 is even better in this particular regard.

answer 1
I believe both of the previous answers are incorrect regarding crop factor. A DX sensor is smaller than an FX sensor. Using a DX lens on an FX camera does not magnify the image - quite the opposite. The FX sensor will see a larger portion of the image (including vignetting at the edges) unless you use the "DX crop mode" of the D600 to limit the sensor area to the same size as DX. Then, it's the same as a DX camera.

The 1.5x crop factor happens only when you put an FX lens on a DX camera. For example, a 200mm FX lens would be the equivalent of 300mm lens on a DX camera. For years, I shot with a 50mm 1.8D on my Nikon D50 #DX camera# because it gave me a bright telephoto image equivalent of 75mm.

I currently use a 35mm DX lens with my FX camera because I like the vignetting effect as a creative tool. It's the equivalent of a 20mm lens with the D600.

Correction, YES you can use DX format with FX lenses. There is a button just below to the right of the lens, press it in and the back command wheel to change from FX to DX. You will only be using 10 MP but you will benefit because you will be using the sweet spot of the lens and because of the size of the pixels you should get reduced noise and better dynamic range. Not to mention 300mm essentially becomes 450mm.... one more thing, the auto focus zone is perfect for DX (entire frame) while kind of small for FX. There are definite advantages in doing what your question asks.

No. Optically a Dx lens is the same as an Fx lens. The reason Dx sensors are 1.5 crop is because they are half the size of an Fx sensor. However when you are done cropping out the vignette you will be in essence at 1.5 magnification, so yes i suppose depending on your point of view.

I agree, this is COMPLETELY unacceptable. If it had this one simple feature, it would be on order right now. A Canon t2i can do this. That's a cheap 4 year old camera. What gives? I really hope this is fixed in a firmware update. I simply cannot believe this thing has clean HDMI out and doesn't have the ability to change the aperture while recording.

You can force any DX lens to shoot full-frame images on the D600. Just turn off Auto DX Crop in the menu and select FX for image area.

You will have severe vignetting, of course, but the amount depends on the lens, aperture, and zoom settings. For example, with my 18-200 set at 200, the full-frame image had very manageable (i.e., easily correctable) vignetting.

In any case, allowing full-frame capture with DX lenses puts YOU in control of the crop. Unless you're strapped for memory card space or are forced to work with a slow computer, I see no reason to use Auto DX Crop.

Question

SD Card "error message", does anyone know the cause?

I was taking some test pictures with my new D600 and all of the sudden I noticed that when I press the shutter release button, the camera is not focusing or releasing the sutter. While trying to figure out what the issue was, I noticed the "card error" message flashing in the screen on top of the camera. After some investigation, I realized that the #2 SD card which I'd set up as overflow back up is causing the issue [In other words card #2 was not even in use when the issue occured]. Removed card #2 and the camera started working again. At this point I had taken about 150 pictures with my camera. Since then I've been unable to read the card that was removed from slot #2 [8GB calss 10 Kensington] on any PC. I'd have this SD card for several months and used it with my other camera's with no issues. I had formatted both cards after inserting them in the camera before shooting pictures. I do understand that memory cards regardless of type or brand could go bad but I am wondering, if anyone knows what could cause this issue?

I am a D600 owner, and I wouldn't lie to you. The answer to your question is yes.

Moreover, the AE-L/AF-L button can be assigned different functions for still and movie modes.

The manual is now available for download. That will explain all of the assignable choices. With respect to menu functions, I have found no errors or inaccuracies in the manual so far.

There are several personal reviews of the D600 online from photographers stating they have been able to assign the AE-L/AF-L button to become the AF-ON button. In my opinion, this AF-ON button capability will be a heavily-weighted determining factor for most pros considering this camera as part of their working equipment list.

NIKON - PLEASE answer this question definitively!

I can take an educated guess.

In terms of captured pixels, full-frame (FX) yields 6,016 x 4,016, whereas the DX crop mode yields a 3,936 x 2,624 image.

While the viewfinder is optical, there is an LCD overlay that provides things like grid lines and the focus points. To show the DX crop exactly (i.e., at 100 percent), the LCD would have to have a resolution of about 24 million dots -- way more than needed for the basic viewfinder overlay functions. (The LCD monitor on the back of the camera only has 921,000 dots.)

The 97 percent spec, therefore, represents the nearest approximation of which the viewfinder LCD overlay is capable, erring, obviously, on the side of safety.

Moreover, you have the option to save all of your RAW images to the SD card in Slot 1 while saving all of your JPEG images to the SD card in Slot 2. You don't have to do it that way (i.e., you can save both format files to the same card), but you have the choice.

There is a menu-accessed microphone sensitivity adjustment, which provides input level control for either the built-in or external mics. There are 20 discrete adjustment levels. The lowest of these should accommodate line level signals.

So, no, there is no line input per se. The mic input, however, might be usable for line signals at low gain. It might be best, nevertheless, to use an inline pad.

16 x 24 in. would be the size at the native aspect ratio. At that size the image resolution would be 251 ppi (pixels per inch), which should be more than sufficient for a high-quality print.

The P mode is one of the four advanced shooting modes: P, S, A, and M. All of them give you full control over camera settings, the only difference being how exposure is handled. The Auto and Auto (Flash Off) modes basically turn the camera into a point-and-shoot. There are many differences; here are just a few:

In Auto mode you are dialed into matrix metering. You cannot change to spot or center-weighted as you can in the advanced modes.

In Auto mode, the flash pops up when the camera decides you need it. You can choose the Auto (Flash Off) mode if you don't want this to happen. In the advanced mode, you always decide if and when to use the flash.

In Auto mode, neither exposure compensation nor bracketing are available.

In Auto mode, white balance is set to Auto and you cannot change it.

In Auto mode, many custom settings assigned to the Function and Depth-of-Field Preview buttons are unavailable.

It would be nice if Nikon compiled a table showing which camera functions are available in which shooting modes. I haven't seen anything like that.

Regarding the P mode, more pros than you might think use this setting. Rather than having to decide with each shot whether to go aperture- or shutter-priority, the P mode interactively enables you to go through the entire available set of shutter speed and aperture combinations for the determined exposure value using the main command dial to shift the program.

Auto mode the camera does everything and you have no control.
Programmed auto the camera will do everything but you can still adjust the aperture and shutter speed. You can also use auto ISO and set minimum shutter speed.

Left and right arrows will indicate whether you are focused behind or in front of your intended subject. You are in focus when the dot appears. Any of the 39 focus points can be selected for this "electronic rangefinder" function.

The D600 does not have interchangeable focusing screens to my knowledge.

Question

Angle of View on D600 with DX lens?

When using the 18-200mm DX lens on the D600, does the lens still provide a 76*-8* degree angle of view?

It seems to me that using this lens on a DX body gives a wider image when compared to using DX mode on the D600.

I know that using FX lenses on a DX body will produce a cropped image, for example a 35mm FX lens produces an image equivalent to a 50mm DX lens, but does this also happen when using DX lenses on a FX camera in DX mode?

Expanding on earlier response with sample images.

Tripod position locked down, D600 and D300 attached in turn via quick-release-type mount. 18-200 set to 18mm. Both cameras set to ISO 500, manual exposure mode. All exposures the same: f/5.6 @ 1/20 sec. RAW images processed in Capture NX2 -- no crop, default settings except white balance. Images downsized, captioned, and saved as JPEG in Photoshop with no other processing. D600 Vignette Control set to off (although this should not matter when using a DX lens).

"When using the 18-200mm DX lens on the D600, does the lens still provide a 76*-8* degree angle of view?"

That depends on whether or not you use the DX crop feature on the D600 (which is on by default). The EFFECTIVE angle of view will be narrower with DX crop because you're using only the central portion of the sensor. The 18-200mm fitted on a DX sensor camera body or a FX sensor camera body with DX crop engaged behaves as though you were using a 27-300mm lens in terms of 35mm film full-frame.

"It seems to me that using this lens on a DX body gives a wider image when compared to using DX mode on the D600."

I don't find this to be the case. I have the D600, the D300, the D80, and the 18-200. I find the angles of view to be equivalent within a few pixels (when I engage auto DX crop on the D600).

"...for example a 35mm FX lens produces an image equivalent to a 50mm DX lens..."

No, no, no. A 35mm lens is a 35mm lens. Lens manufacturers do not change the focal length value they stamp on their lenses on the basis of any reduction in sensor size (with respect to full-frame). For example, my point-and-shoot camera has a lens marked 6.0-22.5mm. In the specs and marketing material, the lens is described as having an angle of view EQUIVALENT to 28-105mm on a full-frame sensor camera. Get it?

The 18-200 can be used in non-crop (FX) mode on the D600, but you will get severe vignetting. (It's actually not too bad at the 200mm end, though.) And, yes, the wider angle of view in that case means the lens is no longer as "telephoto" as it was for you on a DX body or in DX crop mode.
