Re: Whick back up camera should I buy?

Moved your thread here as it is the better forum

I'd get a good used D700. Weetrish got one recently for under £1000 and it only had about 16k actuations. Not overly keen on the newer models TBH as they are leaving basic features off but if you don't use them I guess that would not be so important to you.

If you already have a D600 and FX lenses the D700 will take over as your main camera and the D600 will be the back up!

If you want cheap the D300/300s are a good bet.

Isn't the D600 a more advance cam than the D700

Re: Whick back up camera should I buy?

You have previously asked this question here:

http://www.pixalo.com/community/came...buy-54146.html

In that thread I suggested that you get a good used D700 and use the D600 as a back up camera.

I'll expand a little on my reasoning. The D600 is glued together, not screwed, so servicing is difficult or impossible. (Rumour is that in the recent recall of the D600 regarding the dust on the sensor issue is that they are actually replacing them as they cannot be serviced). The D600 uses the D7000 focus system, so the 39 focus points do not cover the full frame. The D700 has 51 focus points that do cover the full frame. The D700 is weather sealed as are the Nikkor pro lenses (don't know if the Tamron is or not). The chassis of the D700 is magnesium so is much stronger than the D600. The D700 shutter is rated at 150,000 actuations - although I know of some that have done over 200,000 and are still going.

If you are determined to get a Nikon crop factor camera you have little choice other than the D7100, but be aware of the issues that you can get by not having the low pass filter over the sensor, that is greater potential for moiré with fine patterns. You will also need top quality lenses to get the full benefits.

I still think that the D700 is a really good option, but it is your decision in the end.

Re: Whick back up camera should I buy?

I heard oo the D600 having dust on the sensor, but never took it seriously, how can I see if the sensor has dust other than removing the lens..

Usually you see it on your pictures, although you can inspect the sensor visually. We have a news item on the dust issue here

http://www.pixalo.com/community/news...tml#post389132

I don't know why they are doing this recall. You can clean the sensor quite easily. Perhaps there is more to it than meets the eye, or maybe the dust in question damages the sensor if you try to clean it

I've now merged your two threads as you have asked the same question.

I can understand you having a backup camera but why a second backup camera

I thought the issue was glue in the corner of the sensor rather than dust !

IIRC the original Nikon statement did say that there was a dust issue. The only sure thing is that here is more to this than Nikon are admitting to.
