Robbie Carman: Hi. I'm Robbie Carman. Rich Harrington: And I'm Rich Harrington. Robbie Carman: And Rich, this week we're going to talk about another very popular and in demand camera. And that's the Nikon D600. Rich Harrington: Yeah, this is a camera that Nikon came out with that sort of, again, a middle-of-the-road camera. We had the big flagships. Canon released the 5D Mark 3, Nikon released the D800 and the D800E. Robbie Carman: Mm-hm. Rich Harrington: By the way, if you're going to shoot video, do not get the E model. Robbie Carman: Rich Harrington: It's specifically for doing things like close-up macro work. It's got some things in the sensors removed that actually make shooting video impossible with the down resonance angle.
Robbie Carman: Yeah, it sort of amplifies the sort of, resolution characteristics of the sensor but if you don't go in to at planning and and plan out your shoot accordingly, you're not going to get some good looking images. Rich Harrington: No, no, no, but this camera is an interesting iteration. I've been a Nikon shooter for a long time. I used to shoot on a D300. Robbie Carman: Mm-hm. Rich Harrington: And I had the 300, I had the 300S, I wanted it for video. Nikon did a bad job on that one. Robbie Carman: Right. Rich Harrington: For video purposes. AVI Photo JPG ancient, everyone wrote off Nikon.
They forget that Nikon actually had video on cameras before Canon did. Robbie Carman: That's true. Rich Harrington: So, you know, they were embracing this early on. And then, I've been a big fan of the D7000 for a long time. I still use it, I still shoot on it. Great video, H statue 6-4, long record times. 20 minutes, you know? I was like alright, this is good. And then the D800 came out. I tried it, I used one for a while. Loved it, but similar to your reaction that we talked about on the 5D Mark 3, I'm like, this is just too much camera. These 36 megapixel raw files are big.
Robbie Carman: Yeah, and, and that's an important point. The D600, in a previous episode we talked about the, the new Canon 6D. And. Rich Harrington: There's a pattern here of 6 and D's. Robbie Carman: And, Nikon and Canon have known to go a little tit for tat. Actually the D600 was released before the the Canon 6D. And they're both meant to fill sort of the same niche. And that is offering still and video shooters the ability to go to a affordable, full frame sensor. And the Nikon is a really interesting camera.
Because when you look at it on paper, compared to the 6D, it looks much better, you know, better auto-focus system. Rich Harrington: Better audio. Robbie Carman: Better audio, you know, clean HDMI out, and number of things. And this week we're just going to talk a little bit about some of the big benefits of the camera. Then we'll break down things like the menu system, and give you a little tour so that you can sort of better compare and contrast different cameras in this range like 6D and the D600 and make some educated decisions. So, be sure to join us back in just a moment, and we'll we'll dive into some benefits of the camera.
