Nikon D600 Hands-On Review Updates 10/10/12

  • Autofocus: Added link to the more detailed post regarding the D600's autofocus.
  • Colors: I am noticing that bright reds sometimes appear more saturated.  For example, I've had to tone down the red of the lips on my subjects on occasion.  This may be an issue with the beta version of Adobe raw support.
  • Battery life: The first time I ran down the battery, I only got a little over 400 shots.  But at that time I was using a lot of live view (for testing purposes).  This past weekend, I took 512 shots and the battery life was still 77%.  I was using a lens that didn't have VR, I wasn't fiddling with the menus too much, and I only shot one short video.
  • Circular Polarizer - the effect of a circular polarizer is observable on the screen in live view.
