Nikon D600 with AF-Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D £663
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.
