Tidy, great results but sadly only for a few days!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nikon D600 Digital SLR Camera Body Only (24.3MP) 3.2 inch LCD - (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Camera)
My other camera is a D300 which I have to say feels much better made that the D600, I guess that's semi-pro quality versus amateur and also because of the extra D600 facilities the designer must have had a nightmare designating the settings. I takes a while to read the book, some clever and some quirky stuff that I am unlikely to use. The pictures that I took with it were lovely, noticeably better than the D300 results and its great having all those extra pixels to play with. Disappointment came when working through the book as a familiarisation exercise within a few days of receiving the camera; suddenly the viewfinder image suddenly became hugely distorted. I switched the camera off and checked the auto focus setting and then removed the lens. Fortunately I didn't release the shutter whilst this was going on because the Fresnel screen that sits underneath the prism had become detached due to its retaining clip being dislodged and it fell to the floor and suffered some scratches. After fastidious cleaning I replaced the screen with its scratches and secured the clip. The camera appeared to work fine but was returned as faulty. The packaging it arrived in appeared to be inadequate and the damage may have been due to bad handling in transit. Looking forward to a new one!

Did you buy from Amazon or a Amazon reseller?

This camera appeared to have been shipped direct by Amazon. It was returned for a refund and I bought another via Amazon, this time it was fulfilled by a reseller who padded and packaged the camera well. Unfortunately this camera also has a fault (date and time needs reset after each battery charge) and will have to go back to Nikon in the spring for repair.
