I shoot lots of pictures - how often would I need to clean D600?
I do a lot of multi row 360 degree HDR and time lapse shots. If I go to a place like Death Valley I can easily shoot 500 - 1000+ frames per day. If there is a such a thing as an average D600, does this mean I will need to be cleaning my D600 multiple times per day, while camping in the dirt? I'm just trying to figure out the reality and practicality of getting a D600 for the way I shoot.

I shot a couple thousand familiarization images through the camera on either non-important stuff or shallow DOF images where you'll never see dust in those sorts of shots. I did regular in-camera cleanings during this time. I even shot a 2 hour time-lapse with mine during this with the aperture at f/11 without any visible issues.
At the end of this, I cleaned sensor thoroughly and I expect the camera will be normal going forward as far as sensor cleaning goes - mine was not as bad as what others have seen, I suspect the early cameras might have been a bit worse on this issue.
