Nikon unveils smallest DSLR camera
Dubai, September 17, 2012
Japan-based Nikon has introduced the D600 DSLR camera, its lightest and smallest FX-format DSLR camera, which offers a 24.3-megapixel image sensor for superior image quality.
Despite having the smallest and lightest body among Nikon FX-format cameras, the D600 offers advanced performance, a statement from the company said. It is equipped with a new FX-format CMOS image sensor with 24.3-million effective pixels and the same Expeed 3 image-processing engine built into high-end Nikon DSLRs (D4, D800, D800E) for superior definition and image quality.
It is extremely portable, yet it offers the superior image quality and rendering performance, operation, and durability of high-end FX-format D-SLRs.
In addition to a new FX-format CMOS image sensor with 24.3-million effective pixels and the same Expeed 3 image-processing engine built into high-end models, the D600 offers a number of advanced features, including an optical viewfinder with 100 percent frame coverage, a large and clear 3.2-inch LCD monitor with wide angle viewing, and the same dust and water-resistance as the D800 and D800E.
It is also equipped with the Multi-area mode Full-HD D-Movie function, which enables recording in either FX- or DX-based movie format for more creative freedom.
The D600 is also equipped with a headphone jack so that headphones may be used to check sound, and movies can be viewed simultaneously in the camera’s monitor and in an external monitor via the movie live view display.
Uncompressed movie data can also be output to an external recorder via the built-in HDMI interface, and the time-lapse photography function can be used to automatically photograph relatively slow moving action, such as the blooming of a flower and the passing of clouds, at specified intervals. The camera then combines the photos and records them as a silent time-lapse movie. – TradeArabi News Service
