Documentation on optional accessories and add-ons
Information on batteries and expected battery life has been compiled in Nikon D600 battery life.
On page 297 is a list and explanation of optional accessories that can be plugged into the accessory terminal. Examples of popular devices are:

- Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord — A 1 meter / 1 ft. 4 in. wired remote release with a shutter release button lock for BULB / long exposure photography.
The Nikon ML-L3 infrared remote control is a cost-effective solution for triggering the shutter wirelessly.
In your search for a remote control for your D600, you will encounter a multitude of third-party RF (radio frequency) and digital timer (intervalometer for time-lapse photography) controls. Read Phottix Plato, Phottix Nikos, Phottix Cleon N10 and Phottix Cleon II to learn more about these kinds of remote control units. Very importantly, you must ensure that the third-party remote you intend to purchase is compatible with the D600.
An external flash is essential for professional event photography. Read How To Take Better Photos With Flash and All about lighting to learn more. The following Nikon Speedlights and flash accessories are mentioned in the manual as being compatible with the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) feature that is supported by the camera:
Page 294 has a convenient table showing the different features and functionality available on this camera with each CLS-compatible flash unit.
