"RE: DX mode file size"
The DX crop mode in the D600 (like all Nikon's FX DSLR's) is the same size (to within a fraction of a millimetre) as the whole sensor in a DX Nikon like the D7000.Where you are going wrong is that the "crop factor" of 1.5x - which is only an approximation anyway - applies to both width and height of the frame.The FX frame area is about 2.3 times that of the DX frame - to be precise, the D600 sensor measures 35.9mm x 24mm (861.6 sq mm) and the D7000 sensor measures 23.6mm x 15.6mm (368.16 sq mm).
