Once again manufacturing giants Canon and Nikon go head-to-head in a revolutionary new range of DSLR cameras that is sure to get consumers salivating.

The Nikon D600 and the Canon EOS 6D are currently the most affordable full-frame sensor models in their line-ups and are aimed at enthusiastic amatures and professional photographers alike. In order to help you get a clearer picture of how they compare to each other specifications-wise, I’ve compiled a handy little table summarising the key differences between the two models.

      These are not really reviews, just a rehash of the spec sheets. I suspect the author has not taken a single shot with either camera…..

        HI John. Your suspicions are correct because these cameras hadn’t even hit S.A shores at the time of writing. I have not, however, claimed this piece as a camera review, merely a heads-up on what to expect.
