Nikon D600 Dust Time Lapse

“Dustgate” (my name) is the new drama associated with release of the Nikon D600 and it’s apparent tendency to accumulate more dust on the sensor than normal. A Photographer created a time-lapse showing D600 ‘dust’ accumulation, via DPReview.

Canadian photographer Kyle Clemens just bought a Nikon D600, but rather than get straight out and start shooting with it, he decided to investigate the widely-reported claims of a ‘dust problem’. Clements set his D600 up with a fixed 50mm F1.8 lens, pointed it at a white wall, and shot 1000 images. Then he created a timelapse video which shows the slow accumulation of debris on the camera’s sensor. Although the exposure of the individual frames isn’t uniform, Clements’ video clearly shows a steady buildup of debris over the course of shooting the 1000 frames.
