The Nikon AF600 is a autofocus, auto-exposure, compact camera for 35mm film, introduced by Nikon in 1993. It is also known as the Lite•Touch AF. A QD (quartz date) version was available for date imprinting.

At the time of its introduction, the AF600 was the world's smallest and lightest AF/AE camera.[1]. It features a 28mm f/3.5 fixed wide-angle lens made from 3 elements in 3 groups. The lens has an aperture range of f/16 to f/3.5 with a focus distance is from 0.35m to inf.
