p.1 #1 · Nikon D600 Teardown!


ifixit.com has posted a teardown of the Nikon D600. Nikon's latest full-frame DSLR scored a low repairability score, of 2 out of 10.

"With the release of a "budget" full-frame camera, Nikon hopes to lure the mid-level/Prosumer camera junkies into taking the plunge into full-frame wonderland. Unfortunately, a "budget" full-frame camera still means a price tag of $2,099, so it's not exactly a bargain."

No good. They didn't dismantle the mirror box to get to the shutter which is the most complicated procedure in any SLR...

Pity they didn't comment on how weather-sealed it is compared to the D7k, D800, etc.

p.1 #5 · Nikon D600 Teardown!


it was not so long ago Fred and you and I were there that 2K was unthinkable for this kind of performance

I still have the receipt for the D100 I got the day it came to Minneapolis. $2199.00

I still have the first 1GB cf card when they first came out it cost me $299.00 and was slow as molasses

these are good times to be alive

I fixit or whoever tore it down, criticized the D600 because they felt it had too many solder joints. Almost laughable, if they used a one piece flexboard how could it be repaired other than replace the whole flexboard? The way Nikon has built it allows replacement of each function or module.

Me too Johnny, I was looking for a receipt for something else and I came across the receipt for my D100 and 1GB, and like you say, it was $2100 bux for the camera. I have been completely blown away with the D600 performance, especially since I have something to compare it to. Today's cameras are incredibly umm, awesome!

90% of connections in a camera are NOT and SHOULD BE NOT solder joints.
Rather they are ribbon cables that you can detach withot needing to solder/desolder.
This is what they were talking about...and can be seen easily on the pictures.
This way all you need to repair it is a screwdriver, the new parts and patience.

Yep, couldn't agree more about the price.

$2000 is NOT a lot of money for this sort of performance.

Wasn't that long ago that $1400 got you a Canon Rebel or Nikon D40 with a kit lens. (albeit Aus was being ripped off pretty hard by Nikon / Canon Australia).
