Use a Reliable Power Source
The shutter curtain is delicate and easily damaged. If the camera powers off while the mirror 
is raised, the curtain will close automatically. To prevent damage to the curtain, observe the 
following precautions:
• Do not turn the camera off or remove or disconnect the power source while the mirror is 
• If the battery runs low while the mirror is raised, a beep will sound and the self-timer lamp 
will flash to warn that the shutter curtain will close and the mirror will be lowered after 
about two minutes. End cleaning or inspection immediately.
Foreign Matter on the Low-Pass Filter
Nikon takes every possible precaution to prevent foreign matter from coming into contact 
with the low-pass filter during production and shipping. The D600, however, is designed to 
be used with interchangeable lenses, and foreign matter may enter the camera when lenses 
are removed or exchanged. Once inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the 
low-pass filter, where it may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To 
protect the camera when no lens is in place, be sure to replace the body cap provided with 
the camera, being careful to first remove all dust and other foreign matter that may be 
adhering to the body cap. Avoid exchanging lenses in dusty environments.
Should foreign matter find its way onto the low-pass filter, clean the filter as described 
above, or have the filter cleaned by authorized Nikon service personnel. Photographs 
affected by the presence of foreign matter on the filter can be retouched using Capture NX 2 
(available separately; 
0 298) or the clean image options available in some third-party 
imaging applications.
