Hot on the heels of a Nikon D400 rumor, Nikon Rumors is at it again with new rumors of a cheaper full-frame model, dubbed the Nikon D600, which would serve in a complementary role the D800 (and perhaps replace the now-lower-priced D700) .  Rumored specifications include a 24MP CMOS sensor, no internal AF motor (akin to entry-level APS-C cameras), and a price point around $1500.

Other rumored specs include:

  • The new camera will be marketed as an entry level full frame camera
  • Auto DX crop mode
  • Dual SD card slots
  • In-camera RAW editor
  • Built in time-lapse functionality
  • There will be no built-in HDR feature
  • Possible integrated GPS
  • New external battery grip

The camera is alleged to make an appearance before Photokina 2012.

Stay tuned for the latest.

Here’s hoping this is more than a rumour. I’ve been hoping for an affordable full-frame Nikon for quite some time now. This will be good news for those of us with an armoury of Nikon lenses from 35mm days who don’t want to compromise our wide angle ones with the smaller format, and simply cannot afford an F4. You can even chuck away the pentaprism if you like; I’d be content with electronic viewfinders. No frills: just a good sensor.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

Need the little tab for ai stuff, that would make my day

An entry full-frame camera like the D600 could mean the D400 may never see the light of day.

Adam, I agree, I believe it when I see it.
