EXPEED 3 for faster, more intelligent
image processing
With the goal of increasing pixel
count while minimizing high ISO
noise, Nikon engineers created
a way to get the most out of this
camera’s astounding 24.3 effective
megapixels using the new FXformat sensor. Using its high S/N
(signal-to-noise) ratio, the D600 achieves stunning details, all
while keeping noise remarkably low throughout the wide ISO
range, and even further reduced at ISO 100. The D600’s large
pixel count also means more flexibility in cropping during
post-production. Combine these benefits with beautiful
bokeh from a large FX-format sensor and a much wider array
of compatible NIKKOR lens choices, and
DX
you can see how much potential the
D600 truly offers.
Utilized by top-end models like the D4 and
D800 series, EXPEED 3 generates
extraordinary images. That same
image-processing engine is
found in the D600. The camera’s
2 4 . 3 - m e g a p i xe l i m a g e f i l e s
are large, but EXPEED 3 handles
them smoothly and efficiently, which
translates into more shooting confidence for you during
continuous shooting, card recording, image playback and
image transfer. Even with specialized processing features
like Active D-Lighting and high ISO noise reduction, the
effect on capture speed is minimized. EXPEED 3’s stateof-the-art intelligence successfully reduces noise at higher
ISOs without sacrificing fine details, all while broadening
the dynamic range and improving color reproduction in
significant ways.

FX format for more flexible control of light
Nikon’s noise reduction method
From the bright, harsh noonday sun, to low-lit interiors or
evening scenes, the large FX-format sensor handles light so
effectively that it delivers exceptional image clarity from ISO
100 up to ISO 6400. When it comes to high ISO settings,
Nikon takes image quality very seriously.
Strict standards have been put into place to
ensure clearer pictures. When the situation
demands even more versatility, you can now
push your light sensitivity to ISO 50 (Lo 1) or
ISO 25600 (Hi 2) equivalent. The higher ISO
capability gives the D600 a specific edge,
not only creating further handheld shooting
opportunities via faster shutter speeds, but
also offering video enthusiasts the confidence
to shoot in darker places.
Thanks to its improved image processing performance
and a comprehensive noise reduction system, the
D600 successfully minimizes noise at higher ISOs while
substantially broadening the standard ISO range. What
makes Nikon’s noise reduction method
superior is that noise appearing in an image is
analyzed, and then optimized noise reduction
is applied accordingly. The result: effective
noise control in your movies and still images,
all without sacrificing the fine details.

Incredible AF design with compatibility up to f/8
The D600 delivers remarkable AF performance using
39 tightly packed, strategically placed AF points,
which work like a net to find your subject and lock it
into sharp focus. The nine cross-type sensors in the
center give you further accuracy, even when light and
contrast are scarce. If the maximum effective aperture
of your super-telephoto lens gets as slow as f/8 when
attaching a 2.0x teleconverter, you can still count on the
D600’s AF performance with seven active AF points —
a huge benefit for sports and wildlife shooters.

Versatile AF-area modes
Regardless of your photographic passion, the D600 has
AF-area modes optimized to suit your subject matter.
Dynamic-area AF is a powerful tool for tracking moving
subjects using one priority focus point and the supporting
points surrounding it. Switch between 9-point, 21-point
and 39-point coverage, depending on your subject’s size,
speed, and type of movement. The intelligent 3D-tracking
feature allows you more compositional freedom by
continuously following moving subjects that stay within
your 39 AF points. Try single-point AF when you need
pinpoint focus on stationary subjects such as landscapes,
portraits or still lifes. On the other hand, the D600’s
auto-area AF is an ideal choice for candid shooting, as it
automatically detects main subjects.
Scene Recognition System for further
metering accuracy
Speed that responds to your reflexes
To ensure you catch the right moment,
the D600 shoots up to approx. 5.5
fps in both FX and DX formats —
outstanding speed when you consider
that each image is 24.3 megapixels.
Such speed makes dynamic-area
AF even more effective. The power
switch strategically encircles the
shutter-release button, which means
that once turned on, your finger is
already in position. The camera is ready
to shoot in approx. 0.13 s*, and release
time lag has been minimized to approx.
0.052 s*, close to the Nikon D4’s
approx 0.042 s*. The right-hand
grip has been optimized as well,
complemented by a redesign of the
shutter-release button area for faster
response and less stress to your finger.
Utilizing the camera’s built-in 2,016-pixel RGB sensor,
Nikon’s Scene Recognition System analyzes each scene’s
brightness and color information, and then uses this
information to further improve accuracy in autofocus, auto
exposure, auto white balance and i-TTL flash metering.
Such accuracy instills a vital dose of confidence when using
auto control. This is particularly helpful with autofocus,
where the Scene Recognition System measures subject
identification and tracking information for an enhanced
performance by 3D-tracking and auto-area AF.

RELIABILITY
Light, small, dependable
Incredible agility when shooting in remote and demanding conditions
The most compact FX-format D-SLR camera
Accuracy to match both your view and your vision
When in the field, photographers always stress the
importance of traveling light, and Nikon engineers
listened. While designing the D600, many camera
components were reassessed and redesigned in order to
free up as much internal camera space as possible. The
main challenge was to optimize the design surrounding
the pentaprism and employ a smaller AF sensor module.
The result is an FX-format D-SLR camera that weighs
approx. 760 g/1 lb 10.8 oz* — the lightest and smallest
in the FX-format category. Where would you go with
mobility like this?
A precise understanding
of ever y element in the
frame can be crucial to your
compositional intentions,
especially when shooting
landscapes. The D600 is
e q u i p p e d w i t h a n ew l y
developed glass prism optical
viewfinder that gives you approx. 100% frame coverage.
Enjoy a bright and clear view thanks to the large FX-format
sensor, plus a focusing screen that is painstakingly designed
to make sharp focus fast and intuitive in both autofocus and
manual. Unlike the LCD monitor, the viewfinder allows you
to truly home in on your subject more steadily and without
distractions. The speed of viewfinder shooting also gives you
an edge when you need to make quick decisions, which can
be crucial while shooting portraits, candid images or action
shots. If needed, try the viewfinder’s on-demand grid lines*
for simpler, more accurate framing.

Light, rugged magnesium alloy body
Nikon engineers trimmed both the size and weight without
sacrificing ruggedness. The D600 uses durable magnesium
alloy for the top and rear frames, which helps keep it light
while protecting the sensitive technologies within from
accidental shock. Extensive weather sealing gives the D600
dust- and moisture-proof protection that is just as reliable as
its higher-end cousins, the Nikon D800 series, allowing you
to work in harsh environments.
Double SD card slots compatible
with UHS-I
When shooting large image files,
recording speed and card capacity
matter. The D600 comes equipped
with double SD card slots that are
compatible with the latest UHS-I
for faster data transfer. The camera
also supports SDXC, the SD cards’
large-capacity standard, to ensure
stress-free and productive shooting.
Eye-Fi equipped SD cards are also
compatible. Having two SD cards
offers a number of advantages,
including backup recording, RAW/
JPEG separate recording and more.
Shutter tested for 150,000 cycles
The camera’s highly durable shutter
and sequential control mechanism
have been tested to 150,000 cycles
on fully assembled cameras. While
the shutter unit is designed for speeds
between 1/4,000 of a second up to
30 s, its intelligent, self-diagnostic
shutter monitor automatically monitors
actual shutter speeds in order to
correct possible variances that can
occur over time.
Leading-edge LCD monitor with
automatic brightness control
The large 8-cm (3.2-in.), approx. 921kdot LCD monitor offers you bright,
crisp image playback with an extended
color reproduction capacity. Its antireflective design offers clear, glarefree performance, even under bright
conditions. Set your monitor brightness
to Auto, and when the monitor turns
on, the camera will automatically
adjust the LCD brightness according to
the environmental lighting conditions,
allowing easy image confirmation in
both bright and dimly lit places.

Whether you want to record nature, exotic locations or just
the magic moments of daily life, Nikon’s broadcast-quality
D-Movie demonstrates exquisite moving image integrity,
due in part to its 24.3 megapixels and large FX-format
sensor. By using the B frame data compression method,
the D600 can record 1080p Full HD video at 30p in H.264/
MPEG-4 AVC format for up to 29 min. 59 s* of recording
in a single clip. The camera’s intelligent image sensor
reads out movie images at faster rates than ever. Thanks
to EXPEED 3, Nikon’s latest image-processing engine, you
can expect exceptionally smooth gradation, with minimum
block noise and beautifully natural movement rendered
sharp and clear. Your movies will take on a distinctive look
of their own, even when shot in dimly lit locations. Combine
these benefits and you’ll begin to realize what new creative
opportunities are possible for photographers and video
enthusiasts alike.
With two formats in one camera, the D600 is designed to
explore a variety of moods and perspectives. The camera
gives you exquisite Full HD image quality in both FX- and
DX-based movie formats. Video enthusiasts will love the
shallow depth of field that the large FX-based format can
deliver. Action and wildlife shooters can take advantage
of the DX-based format and its telephoto effect for
extra reach when they need it. Combine the
benefits of both formats with an arsenal of
NIKKOR lenses and you can begin
to see what an incredibly
versatile movie-making tool the
D600 truly is.

Comprehensive audio recording control
Time-lapse photography made easy
The D600 is designed for crisp stereo recording with
a built-in external stereo microphone input. Attach the
compact ME-1 Stereo Microphone to record clear sound
while significantly reducing mechanical noise. An external
headphone connector enables you to effectively monitor
and control audio in isolation. While the sound level
indicator offers visual confirmation of audio level, the
microphone sensitivity can be controlled precisely in 20
incremental steps.
Creating a time-lapse photography piece once required
elaborate calculations and editing, but not any more. Simply
designate the interval and duration times through the menu
and the D600 does the rest: each series of frames you
shoot will be automatically converted and saved as a movie
file, ready for your review. Whether it’s traffic, passing
clouds or something more creative, the D600 makes it easy
to show slow-moving activity at dramatic speeds*.
* Replaying rates can be set from 24 times to 36,000 times faster than normal.
Note: Movie files of time-lapse photography will be saved in 16:9 aspect ratio.
Optimized live view controls for stills or movies
View simultaneous live view output on external
monitors and record uncompressed video via HDMI
The D600 comes with independent live view controls
that have been designed specifically for both stills and
movie shooting. During still photography shooting, live
view is capable of fast contrast-detect AF, operating at the
same speed as the D4 and D800 series. It also displays
your images with up to approx. 19x magnifying capability
for accurate focus confirmation. When shooting movies,
on the other hand, the camera’s specialized exposure
controls enable smooth exposure transitions for moving
subjects. Use live view mode for a clear and accurate
way to confirm both the image area and the shooting
information so you can
concentrate on the shot.
In addition to the camera’s LCD monitor, the D600 lets you
watch the camera’s output on an external monitor* in real
time using an HDMI connection. And for those who need
the purest video output for professional quality editing, you
can now record uncompressed live view movie footage
directly onto an external storage device via HDMI interface.
* When video is output through HDMI interface simultaneously with SD card
recording, output image through HDMI interface will be smaller than 1,280 x
720.
* Total time dependent on frame rate, frame size and movie quality settings.

1: Grip and shutter button ergonomics
3: Two-axis virtual horizon
5: Intelligent power management
The right-hand grip has been carefully
redesigned to accommodate a larger variety
of hand sizes with such a compact FX-format
camera. Small, subtle form changes in the
back create a better grip for the thumb, while
a slightly deeper and longer front groove
provides added stability. Furthermore, the
flattened power switch and adjusted angle of
the shutter-release button both contribute to
making finger movements more natural and
strain-free after prolonged use.
Whenever you need a level view, simply
turn on the smart virtual horizon tool. This
lets you see both horizontal dimensions —
side-to-side and front-to-back*. Landscape,
architecture and still life photographers
will benefit from this added level of
compositional accuracy.
A comprehensive re-working of camera
circuitry helps the D600 realize exceptionally
efficient power management, while the
latest EXPEED 3 image-processing engine
aids power-saving even more. Expect longer
battery life, as well as the ability to shoot up
to approx. 900 shots* on one charge from
an EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-ion Battery, the
same type used in the D7000 and D800
series.
2: Strategic layout of mode dials
The mode dial was designed to give you
quick access to the exposure modes you use
the most. As well as the release mode dial,
the mode dial incorporates a lock function to
prevent unintentional mode switching. The
newly added lock release button is easy to
operate allowing smooth and secure release.
The release mode dial is located on the same
axis, providing continuous shooting options
as well as the quiet shutter-release mode for
even smoother operation.
* Front-to-back available only in the LCD monitor.
* Based on CIPA Standards.
4: Optimized textures and
terminal covers
Numerous camera components have been
improved for further operational comfort.
For example, the rubberized cover for the
terminal interface has now been divided
into three parts to enhance protection
against dust and moisture. On the bottom
of the camera, the anti-slip texture has
been improved for extra grip when shooting
vertically on a tripod.
6: Multi-power battery pack (optional)
Some situations require an extra boost of
power, such as extended location shooting,
making long D-Movies or when shooting
time-lapse photography. The MB-D14 MultiPower Battery Pack lets you double your
shooting time*. This pack incorporates the
same rugged magnesium alloy construction
and weather sealing as the D600 body itself.
The dedicated shutter-release button and
command dials for vertical shooting
are an added benefit, especially
for portrait photographers.
* When EN-EL15 Rechargeable Li-ion
Battery is installed in both MB-D14 and
D600 body.
– 14 –
The D600’s HDR feature shoots two frames in a single
shutter release: one brighter and one darker. The camera then
automatically combines them to create an image covering
a broader dynamic range while retaining full saturation and
tonality — an effective option for landscape photographers.
Direct access to Picture Control
Image area options
Customize the look of your stills and videos
through Picture Control settings by fine-tuning
parameters such as sharpening, saturation, and
hue. The D600 allows you to access Picture
Control instantly and directly from a dedicated
button rather than entering the
menu. You can also use live view to
visually confirm how a customized
Picture Control setting will look on
the monitor.
The D600 allows you to shoot with two different image areas:
FX format (35.9 x 24.0 mm) and DX format (23.5 x 15.7 mm).
DX format offers an approx. 1.5x telephoto effect by using the
required crop. Yet despite this effect, you can still expect the
exceptional image quality of 10.4 megapixels for a variety of
purposes thanks to the D600’s large pixel count. When a DX
NIKKOR lens is used, DX format is automatically selected, and
the image area is visually marked in the viewfinder.
Picture Control

Auto ISO with auto minimum shutter speed control
When using the Auto ISO feature*, the D600 automatically
controls your minimum shutter speed based on the focal length
of the lens being used. This can be very helpful in reducing
camera shake by raising ISO sensitivity, and particularly
advantageous when shooting with a zoom lens.
Quick adjust display
Detail in highlights and shadows: Active D-Lighting
* P, S, A, and M modes only.
When facing extremely high-contrast lighting beyond the
camera’s dynamic range, Nikon’s exclusive Active D-Lighting
helps you maintain details in the highlights without losing them
in the shadows. Choose an intensity that reflects the levels of
contrast in your shooting scenario. Color reproduction at even
the Extra-high intensity level has been improved, thanks to the
EXPEED 3 image-processing engine.
Accurate and flexible auto white balance
By effectively identifying every type
of light source, Nikon’s auto white
balance feature delivers incredibly
accurate results. Choose from
two options: Auto 1 renders white
as white, while Auto 2 renders
warmer hues under incandescent
light sources. Now with the D600,
you can alternate between Auto 1
and 2 during in-camera NEF (RAW)
processing even after you shoot.

As a documentary photographer,
I capture strong images when I can
respond quickly. The D600 is small, light
and fast enough to have with me at all
times, rendering 24.3-megapixel fullframe images that are big and beautiful.
I can even crop tightly to perfect
my composition and still maintain
stunning detail. The D600’s intuitive

system give me complete control
over the imaging process. Technical concerns fade away, and
the camera becomes an extension of my eye, letting me work
unencumbered. Using the bright viewfinder’s approx. 100%
frame coverage, I can confidently record authentic, storytelling
moments that will never be repeated. When shooting portraits,
I’m often at a lens’ widest apertures for the dreamlike bokeh
that a full-frame sensor achieves with fast NIKKOR glass. Now
I don’t hesitate to use ISO 6400 to capture the atmosphere of
a low-light scene. Live view lets me compose my landscapes
precisely, its two-axis smart virtual horizon helping me center
the camera and keep distortion minimized. The D600‘s new
broadcast quality D-Movie, HDR (High Dynamic Range) and
time-lapse photography features are so easy to use they are
now taking my work into new and unexpected directions.
This camera inspires my photographic passions and helps my
creativity soar.
I am often asked to recommend the
best camera for nature photographers,
and this incredibly versatile new
camera is it. In nature photography,
weight often matters, and here you
have the finest Nikon technology in a
rugged, full-frame camera body that is
impressively compact and lightweight.
With 24.3 megapixels, a ver y fast

fantastic high ISO capabilities, it has
exactly what nature photographers want. The D600 gives you
access to NIKKOR’s beautiful array of wide-angle lenses like
the AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, but also lets you use
autofocus at f/8, even when using my favorite long lens, the
AF-S NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G ED VR II with a 2x teleconverter.
This versatility extends to video as well. It delivers fantastic
Full HD video files, and with the large FX-format sensor, you
can shoot cinematically with a shallow depth of field, and the
camera’s lightweight design makes it easier to use on cranes
and magic arms. I love creating multimedia presentations,
and for that, the new time-lapse photography feature is a very
handy little gizmo. Never before has there been such a compact
camera loaded with so many fantastic features. Now there are
no limits to your creativity. The D600 is a true all-rounder.
