p.1 #1 · Some thought on the D600, and its relation to the D 700 and X Pro 1


Just posted an article discussing the D 600 from the viewpoint of a landscape photographer. Tried to provide a sense of its relation to the D 700, and new Fuji Trans X cameras.

Why not post your thoughts directly here? Would probably encourage more conversation...

Seems to be a new trend to make a blog and link back to it, hoping to get followers

I went through the article already.I saw your post first on dpreview. Nice job with nice pictures. I have no issues with your post. I admire people like you. It helps some of us in our purchasing decision. I think I made the right decision buying D600.

Agreed -- this was the kind of thing I was looking for when I was researching the D600 before I bought it.

Thanks for your support. I too look for a variety of reports , professional and non professional before deciding to buy gear.I appreciate those who take the time to make their impressions available free to us.
In some ways , the non-professional sites may be more reliable in some ways. Who knows where the bucks flow between pro reviewers and manufacturers. Not bribes, but entertainment, access to gear...

No one's likely give me anything.

I think there are a lot of people for instance, with D 700s trying to decide whether a D 600 could replace it. I tried to help answer that question ( though there is an issue with slower flash shutter synch speed in the D 600 thay may cause D 700 owners to stand pat.

I would think for the Landscape photographer, the shutter synch speed would be of no concern. I know I never use a flash when shooting landscapes. And while there might be an opportunity to flash some light as the natural light is dying, those cases for 99% of the people would be very rare indeed.

Nice job with the write up.

Jim

Who said I just do landscapes. I occasionally dabble in other types of photography including "strobist" type work.

BTW, just finished a model shoot where the D 600 had some autofucus issues (used a 70-200 VR f2.8 I) Oddly enough, no issue with the AF of the X Pro 1.

In your first image, surely the D700 is the body on the left, rather than the right? Also, you'd generally be rappelling off some cliff in the Amazon Basin, rather than repelling off it.

Aside from that, nice review!

I appreciate this type of amateur writeup. Obviously you aren't making money on it, so it provides a nice perspective.

No need to jump on Jim though, you implied that this writeup was for landscapers...

Hey Henry,

No one said you just did landscapes, at least I didn't say that. But in the very beginning you said you were discussing the differences from the viewpoint of a LANDSCAPE photographer:

So when you then made the comment about that the flash sync speed might cause some D700 users to not want to switch, I was simply reminding you that based on YOUR original premise of the writeup being for Landscape photographers, that as landscape photographers the flash sync speed would rarely ever be in our thoughts... I put it out there as a friendly reminder based on your premise not mine.

Jim

PS.. for me, having used the D700 for years, and now having shot the D600 a couple of times at the beach, I would say that it would make a very capable replacement for the D700, the increased resolution and DR, the better high ISO handling is awesome. The D600 appears to focus very well in dimly lit areas. It would take a little getting used to for someone who comes from a D700 in regards to button placement, and it doesn't use the 10 pin connecter for the remote release. But besides that, I think the D600 would be a great replacement where it counts the most, the image quality.

OK , I got it. From a landscapers point of view, and no other, other than ruggedness, the D 600 rocks! I am impressed how you hold me to my original premise.
