Don't think it has one, but you can buy this:

anyone know if there is a pc sync hotshoe adapter so that you could still run an sb x00 flash on camera? The deal breaker for my needs is that it doesn't have a pc sync port which I would want.

The D600 looks nice. What I like most about it are the small size, faster frame rate, and that they stuck with a 100% viewfinder. Small size is a big plus for back up bodies, and for most people upgrading from crop. Plus, it's still weather sealed. High ISO looks good, about the same as D800 honestly. We don't know yet if it's the sony sensor, but the look of the chip itself does look like Sony Exmor.

Too bad it doesn't have a movable screen.

The Canon 6d (if that is the name of it) could be great. We don't have enough info yet. The 11 point AF might be good. The rumor specs don't say if the other 10 points are cross, just that the center is 2.8 cross. We also don't know about the sensor, yet. A new 20mp sensor could be great, if it has a new high dynamic range design. If it doesn't, it's a fail imho. Also, I'm a huge flip screen proponent, so if it has one, that's a plus. If it has a higher dynamic range sensor, 11 cross points, and a movable screen, and comes under 2k, that's a win in my book. If it has the same tired dynamic range, only the center cross, and no movable screen--yuck.

6D won't have a better sensor, It's gonna be the same sensor from 5D3 at best.

hope canon responds likewise. very tempted but i prefer canon ergonomics. i'll wait a bit..

That's how I feel.

I want badly to go full frame, but three grand is still more than I'm willing to pay, even with an L-class kit lens (which is usually the 24-105).

If Canon could get it down to $2500 with that lens, I'd be thrilled.

But, then, I'm just in it for fun.


Thank you. bw!

those are'cold shoe adapters, meaning even if you mounted an sb800 or 900 on top, the camera wouldn't be able to send ittl signals to the flash.

The news is D600 is made in Thailand, which would explain the reduced price.

Hi Julian - how do you balance that out then? E.g. D800 + for landscapes & macro, 5D/1D for sports/telephoto? Do you generally travel with both systems, or just choose one for the job?

My other half also shoots Canon, and I have a small(ish) number of lenses that we share between us. I'd be interested in a D800 (or heck, maybe even a D600) for the landscape and macro work, but without buying her a new DSLR too we'd be carrying dupes of a lot of gear due to having two different systems.

EDIT: Forgot to add - I had a flick through your Zenfolio site. Nice pics!

Thanks. I make it work. Since I'm landscape guy, I only take my wide angle glass with me. :)

Canon still doesn't get it -if these rumored specs are correct. They are too afraid to impact their existing camera models so they keep bringing out these under whelming bodies. In the end nobody is happy - neither their customers nor Canon because there will come a point when even loyal customers give up and switch to the dark side.

It is useless to resist! May the force be with you.

Welcome to the darkside. ;)

How do you find the ergonomics/button layout differences (and when/why would you use the Canon over the D800)? I'm resigning myself to the likelihood the Canon budget FF will be a poor relation to a D600, and couldn't justify the price of a 5D3 over just getting a 5D2, so I do have occasional thoughts of going to the dark side...


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

I've shot a Nikon D3 before and it took me some time to adapt. I'm a type of a shooter that can adapt regardless of ergonomics and button placement. Most will say Canon is easier to use or vice versa with Nikon. In the end all I need is M mode, SS, ISO, and aperture. ;) Honestly, the ergonomics works well for me. Everyone has different size hands and I can understand how it can be awkward for some.
