Nikon leads the way again, with the first "affordable" full-frame digital SLR. Fun to shoot, the Nikon D600 offers as little or as much control as you want, perfect for both amateurs and more advanced photographers; even pros will feel right at home. Its 24.3-megapixel sensor offers excellent detail, and performs well in low light. In addition to stills, the Nikon D600 captures Full HD video at a greater range of frame rates, and includes not only great audio controls and an external mic jack, but a headphone jack to monitor what you're recording. There is a bit of a dust issue with the Nikon D600, which seems to be worse in the first few thousand frames, so users should learn to clean their sensors. Still, the Nikon D600 is an excellent digital SLR with impressive image quality. We have no trouble recommending it highly. Click here for our Nikon D600 review, or click this link to shop now!
