B&H sent out a marketing email announcement a few days ago. Interesting to me, and perhaps this forum, is the emphasis on video in the marketing description. It is like they want you to see the D600 as a camcorder shaped like a DSLR that can shoot photos too!
My sense is that all future cameras and camcorders will need to be good at both.
(I added the underlining.)
"“The new Nikon D600 digital camera is a compact full-frame DSLR featuring a 24.3MP CMOS sensor and an EXPEED 3 image processor. It is capable of capturing virtually noise-free imagery from ISO 100 to 6400, and has expandable sensitivity from ISO 50 to 25600. It features Full HD 1080p video recording with multiple frame rates, manual exposure control, full-time continuous autofocus, dedicated headphone / microphone jacks and the ability to output uncompressed 8-bit video through the HDMI port while recording.
A 2016-pixel RGB sensor provides accurate, intelligent exposure metering in conjunction with the 3D Color Matrix Metering II system for consistent results. A 39-point autofocus system is also employed to acquire precise focus, which is further enhanced by nine cross-type points and seven center points for use with longer lenses and tele-converters. The D600 also features a 3.2” 921K-dot LCD, a continuous shooting rate of 5.5 full resolution FPS and it is compatible with a wide array of NIKKOR lenses. Additionally, the D600 is compatible with the optional WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter for Wi-Fi connectivity between the camera and your smart phone or tablet. When used with the Nikon Wireless app, it lets you control your camera from your mobile device. The D600 is available as a body only or in a kit with the AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens.”
