AT A GLANCE

Sen­sor 24.3MP full-frame CMOS Sen­si­tiv­ity ISO 100-6400 (ISO 50-25,600 ex­tended) Con­tin­u­ous shoot­ing 5.5fps Video 1080p Full HD at 30fps Rear dis­play 3.2in, 921k-dot LCD Viewfinder Pen­taprism, 100% cov­er­age at 0.7x mag­ni­fi­ca­tion An­nounced to­wards the end of 2012, the D600 was at the time the cheap­est full-frame DSLR in Nikon’s range, slot­ting in just be­low the semi-pro­fes­sional D800. The 24.3MP full-frame sen­sor is ca­pa­ble of ex­cel­lent im­age qual­ity, while the 39-point phase- de­tec­tion AF sys­tem pro­vides fast and ac­cu­rate fo­cus ac­qui­si­tion. For those look­ing to get cre­ative with off- cam­era flash the D600’s built-in flash can also be used as a com­mand unit via Nikon’s Cre­ative Light­ing Sys­tem. In terms of size and build qual­ity the D600 re­mains one of the smaller full-frame DSLRs avail­able and also ben­e­fits from mag­ne­sium al­loy top and back pan­els along­side dust- and wa­ter-seal­ing. It’s a cheap route into full-frame pho­tog­ra­phy.

The Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8 D can be picked up for as lit­tle as £64 from MPB.com
