Well, I started a rather... unsuccessful... thread on the AF600/Lite Touch and it's focusing indicator. I got my first roll back and it seems like the little half second flash of red in the flash-ready indicator next to the viewfinder is the signal for an in focus image.
I've heard great things about this camera... mostly about the lens, and after viewing my first roll, I find it all to be true. There doesn't seem to be much info on this camera here, so I guess I'll start with a thread with some info and a few image samples.
The Nikon AF600 is a nice little fully automated point and shoot camera that sports a tack sharp 28mm f3.5 lens. It's only a tad wider than the XA, making it incredibly portable. It has a panorama mask built in, which can be activated by a switch on the back of the camera.
The viewfinder is a little hard to find, it's small and if your eye is even a little bit off, all you see is black. It shows you the 28mm framelines, the panorama framelines, focus point, and a set of the three corrected for parallax. The manual says to use the parallax-corrected indicators for shots at 1m-0.35m. The viewfinder is rather cluttered.
There is only one indication light next to the viewfinder, which serves as an in-focus/flash-ready indicator. You line up your shot with the little circle in the centre of the viewfinder, half press the shutter, and wait for a short half-second blip of red to go on next to the viewfinder. The blip means the camera has calculated the distance of your subject AND that the flash is ready, delivering an in-focus and possibly flash-filled shot.
There are a few different modes the camera can be set to, you can set it to pre-focus at infinity, a standard selftimer mode, and a selftimer mode that takes two shots, set apart by 10 second intervals, and of course... your standard flash modes.
That's about it, really. Here are some photos. These were taken on a roll of Kodak Gold 400, scanned with an Epson V500 at 2400dpi and passed through some editing in Lightroom and Photoshop.
