Nikon's stealing a march on other major camera manufacturers, announcing the new D600 digital SLR ahead of a raft of releases and announcements form Olympus and Canon early next week.
Impressively, the D600 will be on sale from Tuesday, the 18th of September.
Equipped with a new FX-format CMOS censor with an effective 24.3 million pixels, Nikon considers the camera "the perfect first upgrade to an FX-format body". It also features the same EXPEED 3 image processing engine as the higher-end D4, D800 and D800E cameras.
The D600 is Nikon's lightest, wit the frame only weighing 760gm. With the also just-announced WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter it can connect with smartphones and tablets, for image sharing and remote camera operation.
The new camera also boasts 1080p video shooting, a 39-point auto-focus system, and high-speed image processing, as well as twin SD card slots, for either more storage, or backing up of shots.
The approximate retail price for the body only is $2100. For more info, check out Nikon's official site.
