Nikon has a new DSLR and lens rebate program that just kicked off today and lasts through June 29, 2013. The new instant rebates apply to all Nikon DSLRs – including the new D7100, D600 and D800. [click to continue…]
B&H has the Nikon D600 refurbished for $1,599 (compare to $1,996 new). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
LockCircle has announced its new LockPort USB, which is designed to help avoid damaging your 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II mini USB camera port.
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 NEF Codec Version 1.18.1, which adds support for D600 .NEF files on Windows PCs. You can download the new codec here on Nikon’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.
You can down the updates from Nikon’s website at the following links: ViewNX 2.7.5 | Capture NX 2.4.2
B&H has a solid bundle on the Nikon D600 right now. You get the D600 and 24-85mm f/3.5-f.4G ED VR lens for $2,396.96 (reg. $2,696.95). Additionally, the D600 kit comes bundled with the Nikon WU-1b wireless mobile adapter, a SanDisk Ultra 16GB Class 10 UHS-1 SDHC card, an Oben monopod, a spare battery and a camera bag.
