Back in 2012, Nikon announced the D600 DSLR camera but it looks like a little over a year later, the camera manufacturer has decided to discontinue the device. This is according to a listing on B&H which states that the camera has since been discontinued by the manufacturer, meaning that photographers who are thinking about getting their hands on the device will no longer be able to. Of course there will still be some stock left and should be available through a variety of retailers, although like we said since it has been discontinued, whatever stock is left is pretty much all there is. Photographers who wish to get their hands on the Nikon D600 will probably have to act quickly just in case their local retailers run out stock.
The reason for the discontinuation of the D600 is due to the release of the Nikon D610 which was announced earlier this month. The innards of the D610 is expected to be similar to the D600, although the changes made were to its shutter mechanism which was reportedly improved, and quiet, continuous shooting options, higher FPS rate, and improved white balance. Given that the camera’s release is in October, we guess it makes sense for Nikon to discontinue the Nikon D600 lest it ends up competing with the newer model or confuses customers.
