"RE: Bracketing"

For normal bracketing needs, three frames are enough for me. I can stretch this effectively by shooting RAW to 5 or 6 frames. It is HDR shooting that I want more frames.

You can get other products that will bracket more frames on the D600 or other DSLR bodies. This is helpful for shooting quality HDR images. I like to blend 7 to 9 images with Photomatix for HDR images.

Some of the options are pricey, around $300, but they do much more than bracketing. I'm considering the following:

Camranger: http://www.camranger.com/

Promote Control: http://www.promotesystems.com/

There may be other, less expensive options.

Here are some examples of HDR shot with 7 or 9 bracketed images.

These were shot with a D300. The bracketing issue was one that I considered when I decided to go with the D600. The D800 bracket more images, but it was not a deal-maker for me.
