Great full frame value


Great performance and value. Visibly lower noise at high ISO than DX cameras. Works flawlessly with manual focus, af-d and newer af-s lenses. The AF sensors are all grouped quite tightly in the center of the frame. I almost always use a single AF point, but it could be troublesome for tracking action.

Cruella de Vil


The bad people at Nikon have stolen all the spots of every Dalmatian in the world and put them in this camera. The main purpose of the camera is to take pictures. How can you do that with oil spots all over the sensor. Its like a car that splatters engine oil on your windshield while you are driving. No recall! Just sent my camera in to be serviced, and depending on the outcome, it will determine if I stay a Nikon customer. UPDATE: Camera came back dirty and am having problems with shipping labels in both Chrome and IE. Horrible!


built like a tank - dropped 5 feet & survived


I bought the D600 refurbished over a year ago - perhaps it was returned for the oily sensor issue. Got a great camera for a great price. I own several Nikon cameras (film & digital) including the D700, D2X & F4S. The image quality & resolution are amazing imho. I use it a lot handheld with the 80-400mm VR for shooting birds - a great combination. It is a nice size & weight for hiking compared to my larger heavier D700 & D2X. My D600 has over 11,000 shutter actuations on it and have had no issues at all - except for one close call which was my own fault. I was in a rush to get to the airport one day and put my D600 with attached 28-300 mm VR into my camera back pack & headed down to the parking garage. Put our suitcases into the trunk & as I was swinging my backpack off my shoulder, a loud crack echoed through the garage & saw the camera & lens sliding along the concrete floor. With a few expletives, I picked up the camera, & a small piece of black plastic & put them back into my back pack.Apparently I had in my haste, forgotten to close the zipper in my backpack. . Headed to the airport with thoughts of having to buy a new camera and/or lens ( $3000+/-) when I got back home. After we got to the departure gate lounge I reluctantly took out my D600 & attached lens for a closer examination.The end of the lens hood was a little flattened & chipped & there were a few scuffs on the camera body but no obvious external damage. It's all internal damage I thought. I then took a shot of a helicopter taxiing just outside our window & had a peak at the image on the screen - it looked normal - I was amazed. The old heavy metal Nikon film cameras have often been described as being "built like a tank" but I didn't think I would be describing a plastic covered digital Nikon in the same way. My D600 & 28-300 mm lens are still going strong - thank you Nikon !!


Still today good quality body for the price.


First I will state I do love the camera body and images from it I am a Nikon guy but I do not like constant issues. When I purchased the body I did not have a issue but I received an email stating the problem and they would upgrade it for free so I sent it in. I received it back and I was incredibly happy they tested less than 10 shots after I image tested myself I took it with on a wedding I had. I had multiple lock up issues. I found my command dial would not lock, green light would stay on as if the buffer was full but the images that came out were beautiful and the client was happy so no fuss I had other bodies. Sent it back they replaced the encoder and command dial they took less than 10 test shots and I had it back. This time I was sure I had my d600 back and was again very happy with it. I purchased the d750 as well it had issues so I returned it to avoid this type of thing again thinking I would go with the d810 since I had 0 issues with the d800 and no worries I had a practically new d600 for any winter stuff that might come up. After 500 shots the oil spots came back so again I sent in the camera but now this time I had no other body since I sold my others to upgrade for this year. This time they had it for 2 weeks and when it came back to me it was cleaned up looked new the photos are clean but the data showed Nikon took over 3000 "test" shots with it!!! They said they sometimes need to take multiple test shots. I said a camera with under 10000 on the shutter sells for more than over they said it will not change the resale value. Thats my story take it as you will I have a lot invested in Nikon and even purchased a new d610 to complete a few valentine shoots I had but instead of the 810 I personally may have to switch.


Great camera, small size and weight.


I would give this camera a rating of 4.5 out of 5. I bought it as a second, smaller, lighter, body to use along with my D800 and am very happy with how it is working in that regard. Don't let the dust issue stop you from getting one. Nikon fixed mine for free and it was out of warranty. The image quality is terrific--more than adequate for practically any use. Makes my D800 somewhat un-necessary in that regard. I thought it might be a step down from the D800, but the difference seems to be negligible and not worth worrying about. Live view works great for focusing big slow telephoto lenses. It allows me to get much improved lens performance. In fact, one huge old tele-zoom that I love has actually seen improved performance with this camera body. Terrific! The optional infrared remote trigger works beautifully with the mirror-up option when shooting with a huge slow telephoto lens. Works beautifullyl with my extensive collection of old manual focus Nikkor lenses that I have accumulated since 1967. The optional 24-85mm kit lens is an extremely useful and versatile travel lens. Not too large, as are so many modern lenses. I would prefer a faster lens but the increased size/bulk would likely be prohibitive for easy carry. Dislikes are minor: Need more "non-CPU lens" data entry points than the 9 provided. Viewfinder is a bit small for my glasses. No need for the built-in flash. No need for video. Would prefer a shutter speed dial rather than the command wheel. Cannot mount my old 7.5mm f/5.6 fisheye-Nikkor lens.


Dust, Dead Pixels :(


Sensor Dust, dead pixels starts to appear before 1 year of regular use, see attached pictures.


A real step up


I had been using an N80 for more than 10 years, and other SLRs for many more. When I had become fed up with the increasing difficulty to get films and processing, I got the camera that seemed to me like it could replace it, and got a D5100. I felt like something was lacking with the small viewfinder and the extensive menus. I learned why it is called an entry-level when getting away from automatic meant a lot of menu navigating. When I learned a FX camera could be within my price expectation, I jumped on the first opportunity. I had foolishly forgot to check if my 28-200mm zoom would work on the D5100, and to me recovering that lens was a good bonus. At once that feeling of missing something was alleviated. The big viewfinder looks like the cameras I was used to and the availability of many buttons and the same two command wheels that the N80 has just felt much better. I was very much bothered by the endless discussion of the oil spots because among all the messages there was very little information to get a real feeling for the size of the problem. I tend to like taking photos in very dark places, so I pretty much never use small apertures. I have noticed spots in test shots of a white wall, but never anything on the real photos. I do not know if those were the spots that were so much talked about. So, the combination of price, low light performance, viewfinder and user interface have been just what I had been needing. Since I have the camera I have taken some very satisfying photos.


Sensor Mess


In theory I should love this camera but, I don't. I have multiple Nikon lenses and speed lights and purchased it for close to $2,000 in order to have a full frame camera for my photography business. Landscape photography is the absolutely worse nightmare, the entire frame is a mess in the blue sky area due to dirty sensor issues in the upper left corner especially at f/22. Little specks all over the place that take close to 100-200 clicks to remove in post processing. My husband (a professional engineer) cleaned the sensor with a professional kit after I returned from a trip and discovering the big mess since I needed it for another photo shoot. The mess is endless it's back again a few months later and now I'm sending it in to the Nikon shop for the free repairs and cleaning. Possible two weeks without my camera is the best answer to something that hasn't performed since day one. See screenshot below of the post processing work necessary to meet my standards.


Great Product


With this camera, I am very happy with my move to full frame.


Good Camera, Make Sure to Test it Though!


I've had my D600 since October now and it has worked well. The main issue I had with it was the slight green tint many people spoke of when it was released. This issue would later develop into the camera exposing pictures in all green or neon purple. There was also an issue with odd lines coming up in the top of the frame we had to be removed pixel by pixel. Very annoying work but Nikon fixed the issue free of charge and since then the camera has worked perfectly fine. Other than that the camera offers excellent quality in photos. 24MP is everything I need and the camera has to worked quickly and well in most situation I have used it in. My only advice is to test it out as soon as you get it. If you have another camera shot as many different environments as possible and compare, make sure there is no irregularity in the color of the images. If there is Nikon should be more than happy to help you fix it.
