Lot of users complaining about the Nikon D600 sensor dust issue, now dpreview also confirmed that the new sensor attracts more dust compared to other DSLRs,
An issue that has been reported widely on the web concerns the unusual frequency with which the D600 attracts dust and/or residue on its sensor, particularly in the upper left area of an image, which of course corresponds to the bottom right portion of the actual sensor. And sure enough, shortly after we received our review sample and began our studio testing we found we had to conduct a rudimentary non-invasive sensor cleaning.
We can only speculate at this point as to the cause of the issue. What we can say is that simply blowing air did not remove all of the debris; a wet clean was required, suggesting that some contaminant may have found its way onto the sensor. We are of course, pursuing this issue with Nikon directly, and will update this review as more information comes to light.
Till now we have no reaction from Nikon, may be the next batch of camera will have modified sensor design, we will update you as we get any new information.
Today Triggertrap added a new feature to its app, now photographers can control advance trigger settings from smarphone or tablet, but there is a little problem that you need a another smartphone to as a slave device connected to your camera by a dongle or cable wire, the master device in your hand will do the rest if the work, one more thing no need of WiFi in you camera since you are using two smartphone the slave and master will get connected to each other via wireless hotspot running on the master smartphone.

Flickr Exif Info
Take a look at msg from Flickr member Schill to users
Hello, glorious Flickr users,
We’ve made two changes to the photo page around the “photo story” and “additional info” area relating to EXIF information.
When available, we currently show the make and model of camera used to take the given photo along with the date, time and location.
In many cases, we would link the camera model (i.e., “using an Apple iPhone 4″), to the EXIF page for a photo. Now, it will link to the Camera Finder page – a much more logical destination.
In conjunction, we are now starting to show some EXIF information inline on the photo page, under the “Additional info” heading. At present, we show exposure time, aperture, film speed, and focal length as applicable on the photo page.
Here’s an example of how it looks:
The EXIF details themselves are a link, which now points to the full EXIF page.
Note that your EXIF will only be displayed to others based on your account preferences; you can review your current setting on the EXIF Privacy page.
As a Canon 5D owner, one of my favourite things is seeing the camera settings that people use to take great photos; this little UI tweak helps to expose some of that info up-front.
