Max – like the $2797 D800, the $1997 D600 has a serious problem with moire (shimmering, colored bands on patterned subjects such as brickwork, shingled roofs, striped clothing, etc.).  This can be seen clearly in this side-by-side between the D600 and the $1249 Panasonic GH3:

The $3300 5D Mark III solves the moire problem – but, straight out of the box, it is not as sharp as the GH3:

If you are willing to modify your camera, there is a hack that allows the 5D Mark III to shoot RAW, surpassing the resolution and dynamic range of the GH3:

But this will significantly increase the amount of storage required to record your videos – and can be a challenge to deal with in the editing suite.

 

For video, I recommend the GH3 – straight out of the box, it is the best value-for-money large-sensor, interchangeable lens camera on the market.

 

Unlike the D600 and the 5D Mark III, it:

 

– records for hours continuously,

 

– has lightning fast and accurate video autofocus,  and

 

– has a viewfinder that continues working in video mode.  

 

Hope this is helpful,
