It looks as if Nikon is looking to add a more reasonably priced full-frame shooter to its current lineup of DSLRs — which currently includes the D4, D800, and D3200. Nikon reps have mentioned that the D800 was not intended to be a replacement for the D700 as it was “a whole new category of camera,” leading consumers to wonder what that replacement will, in fact, be.
Rumors are rife that this could mean the manufacturer is working on another, cheaper DSLR dubbed the Nikon D600. Updated Nikon D600 Specs can be found here.
The following preliminary specs have been leaked about the D600:
- Unknown MP count as of the moment
- It will be an entry level full frame camera
- Auto DX crop mode
- Dual SD card slots
- In-camera RAW editor
- Built in time-lapse functionality
- No built-in HDR feature
- Possible integrated GPS
- New external battery grip
- To be released this summer
