Previously, LockCircle released the LockPort HDMI port savers, which proved successful and led to the logical development of a port saver for USB ports on HDSLRs. LockPort HDMI was eventually developed and released for Nikon D600 and D800 HDSLRs, so I would expect a LockPort USB model to be in the works for those cameras as well.
LockPort USB is available for $139 direct from LockCircle. More details here on LockCircle’s website.
Nikon has released ViewNX 2.7.5 and Capture NX 2.4.2, which fix a bug with Nikon D600 files as described below.
When RAW images captured with a D600 running C firmware Ver. 1.01 at an Image area setting of DX (24×16) 1.5× and any Active D-Lighting setting other than Off were opened in Capture NX 2, a bright (whitish) diagonal line was visible. This issue has been resolved.

Nikon has updated/extended its DSLR bundle instant rebates through April 27, 2013. The bundle savings up to $550 now include bundle deals with the new D7100, which I am currently testing and have been very impressed with it so far. It may be the best APS-C DSLR that I have used to date.

Mastering the Nikon D600 is a new book from photographer Darrell Young, who has authored several other books in this series on Nikon DSLRs.
“This book explores the features and capabilities of the camera in a way that far surpasses the user’s manual. It guides readers through the camera features with step-by-step setting adjustments; color illustrations; and detailed how, when, and why explanations for each option. Every button, dial, switch, and menu configuration setting is explored in a user-friendly manner, with suggestions for setup according to various shooting styles.”
Mastering the Nikon D600 retails for $39.95; however, it is currently available for $21.07 from Amazon.com.
