Less megapixels, less line skipping, should be better for video than the D800!
I'm debating whether or not I should upgrade from D300 to D600 or D800. Both look like great cameras. Need for video and low lighting stills mostly.
Interested to see the D600's low light high ISO performance, especially in video mode. as compared to the D800 and 5D Mark III. Also would be nice if Nikon finally made a quieter shutter which would make a big difference to me although, from initial specs, the quiet shutter mode seems to operate the same way as the D800. Improving these 2 aspects would make it an ideal back-up to a D800.
Looks like high ISO is almost identical to the D800 for stills but it's still very noisy at 6400ISO upwards for low-light video. Shame but guess they were never going to let it be better than the D800 in such a significant way.
It does sound as though the D600 is far less susceptible to moire and aliasing in video than the D800 though.
