Dynamic range

Image: The dynamic range is an impressive 14.2EV from the D600

Dynamic range has long been a strength of Nikon DSLRs and the D600 continues that trend. DxO (www.DxOmark.com) rates the sensor as having the third highest score in its testing history – just behind the Nikon D800 and D800E. With a measured 14.2EV, the D600 is well ahead of its competition. For those seeking more range, it also features D-Lighting controls to lighten the shadow areas in JPEGs and an HDR mode to combine exposures with an adjustable differential of up to 3EV.
