Nikon D600 sample image at 50 ISO

Sample image taken with a final production Nikon D600 at the Photokina show. Apologies for the unimaginative composition, but it was all I had available! I'll take better ones once I get one in for review. I fitted the D600 with the Nikkor AF-S 35mm f1.4 lens, closed to f8, mounted it on a tripod, focused on the central flower in Live View and took shots at each ISO value. Active D-Lighting was disabled, White Balance set to 3130K and compression set to Large Fine JPEG, optimized for quality. I also shot RAW files which I'll process and present at Cameralabs as soon as they're supported by ACR.


These samples and comparisons are part of my on-going D600 preview at:
