A lot higher megapixel Edit
The Nikon D600 has a megapixel of 24.3MP, however the Nikon D4S is only a 16.2MP digital camera (8.1MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Lighter Edit
The Nikon D600 is a 760g digital camera. That's 420g lighter than the Nikon D4S (760g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

$3,290 cheaper
The Nikon D600 costs $1,199.00, whereas the Nikon D4S is $4,489.00.
Nineteen more awards
The Nikon D600 has 28 awards, however the Nikon D4S has 9 awards.
