The Nikon D600 is the world's smallest and lightest full frame DSLR, says its maker.
Unveiled the week before specialist camera show Photokina, the D600 is set to sit below the Nikon D800 in the brand's range, while it will sit aboe the Nikon D7000 and D300S.
The 24.3-megapixel camera has been optimistically described by Nikon as a "game changer" and sports a new FX format CMOS sensor, along with the Expeed 3 image processing engine - the same one that's found in the pro-level Nikon D4.
Hiro Sebata, product manager for Professional Products at Nikon UK commented:“The D600 will open up new realms of photography for passionate photographers, particularly those looking to take the next step and enjoy the creative edge that comes with a full-frame sensor.”
The camera weighs in at 760g and measures 141 x 113 x 82mm, making it one of the smaller DSLRs on the market. What's more, it sports the same level of weather and dust resistance as the D800.
As well as being compatible with all of Nikon's DX lenses, the new snapper can also be used with the brand new WU-1b Wi-fi adaptor (£64.99) for sharing or storing photos over a wireless connection.
The Nikon D600 will be available, body only, for £ 1955.99 from 18 September 2012, and it will also be available with a 24-85mm kit lens for £2443.99.
