"RE: D600 VS 7100?"

>I'm a novice. What do you mean by "higher pixel
>density"? Both the D7100 and the D600 are 24 Megapixel
>cameras. Please explain. And thanks in advance.

One easy way to understand it is to imagine 24 grapes evenly distributed on a small saucer (D7100). Now picture the same 24 grapes evenly distributed on a dinner plate (D600). There is a lot more space around the grapes on the bigger plate, therefore, less pixel density.
I'm sure we have an engineer out there ready to jump in a give us a better answer... lol
