"The only bad thing about the D600 is that it has the same green color shift problem of the D800 and D4. The LCDs aren't that bad; the problem is that the actual images are often a tad too green! I dial-in M1 (extra magenta) in the auto white balance to get rid of the excess green.
Considering that the much more expensive D800 and D4 have exactly this same problem, I'm not going to whine about it in the D600. I set:
MENU > SHOOTING > White Balance > AUTO > right click to AUTO Normal > right click to the rainbow chart > click one down to M1 > OK
and the green goes away.
Seeing how all of Nikon's 2012 FX cameras have the same flaw, it's as if Nikon is deliberately dumbing-down the color accuracy across the board so all the cameras match, and also so when we finally get used to it, the next wave of cameras can feature "greatly improved color accuracy!" In Japan, it's always two forward, one back.
No worries, set that M1 trick and the colors are fine."
We both work for Nikon.
Has any of the Alliance shoots experienced this, Jim, Steve, Rodolfo?
I haven't noticed that effect, but I do notice that the files are not as saturated from the 800 as they are from my Canon III and X bodies.
