Nikon D610 Features

  • FX format makes a difference: The D610's FX-format CMOS image sensor will transport your photography to new heights. Boasting a larger pixel than you'll get in other formats with the same pixel count, it's able to capture more light. This technical advantage has a huge impact on dynamic and image quality at high ISOs.
  • 4 key assets: Vital elements for a formidable machine - FX-format sensor, EXPEED 3, Picture Control and NIKKOR
  • NIKKOR: NIKKOR lenses realize the sensor's full potential, achieving exquisite sharpness with minimized aberration, while rendering spectacular bokeh for a three dimensional look that's true-to-life.
  • EXPEED 3: The D610 takes full advantage of Nikon's EXPEED 3, the same image-processing engine found in the D4 and D800 series, meaning it can swiftly manage the large data files that an FX-format sensor produces.
  • Picture Control technology: Picture Control technology makes it simple to tailor the look and feel of your stills and videos by fine-tuning their parameters using preset options. And with enhanced auto white balance accuracy for common shooting scenarios, the D610 reproduces colors naturally and precisely.
  • 6-fps continuous shooting: It's easier than ever to nail key moments with the D610. The camera boasts even faster continuous shooting than its predecessor, at up to approx. 6 fps in FX and DX formats - amazing when you consider that the former is recording 24.3 megapixels with each shot.
  • Qc shutter-release mode for quiet operation [NEW]: The D610's new Qc (quiet continuous) shutter-release mode reduces mirror noise while still offering up to 3 fps, for maximum discretion in situations such as ceremonies and school plays, or when taking pictures of wildlife and insects.
  • Approx. 100% frame coverage: The bright, clear glass prism of the D610's optical viewfinder covers approx. 100% of the image area, an invaluable asset for accurate framing. The approx. 0.7x magnification - the same as the D4 and D800/D800 - means it's easy to see all the visual elements in the viewfinder.
  • 39 focus points and f/8 compatibility: The D610's AF system gives you absolute confidence when capturing moving subjects by using 39 strategically placed focus points, with nine powerful cross-type sensors in the center to maintain accuracy even when light and contrast are low.
  • Double SD card slots: The D610's double SD card slots provide multiple options for recording and storing large files: you can write RAW and JPEG data to separate cards, copy from one card to another, or select a slot according to the remaining capacity during video shooting.
  • Dependable body and shutter: The D610's rugged body utilizes a durable magnesium alloy for the top and rear frames, and its weather-sealing gives it the same dust and moisture proof reliability as the D800 series.
  • Built-in flash to trigger remote Speedlights: The D610's built-in flash makes Advanced Wireless Lighting with Nikon Speedlights even easier and more portable. Turn the flash to commander mode and you can wirelessly trigger your remote Speedlights (SB-700 or SB-910) with ease.
  • Full HD D-Movie and time-lapse feature: The D610 can record 1080p Full HD video at 30p in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, with a choice of both FX- and DX-based movie formats, plus comprehensive audio control including a dedicated stereo headphone connector.

I am commenting on the sales process. The camera body itself, I can't tell because it is too soon to spot manufacturing problems related to the oil leaks and ERR messages and bricking that have been notorious with the 600. I am very worried about a return because I refused to accept the "kit". I had a screaming fight with the salesman. I got a battery and a SD card rolling around in the bottom of the box and I hope that if I need to return the body at some future point I won't be refused if I don't have the same card and battery to return at the same time. One of my bills calls my purchase a kit. This includes a holster case which I absolutely refused. I caution everyone else because I don't know if at some future time if I need to return, I will be charged for the case I did not agree to accept. I used to deal with Adorama a few years ago with a company account and they behaved completely differently, maybe because the company was a media company. On my own dealing with Adorama and the other NYC companies, I've found it very hard to simply get the products for the prices advertised. I would have thought that the grim economy would have made them more responsive to customer's needs, but instead, I've found that I am refused most of the time when I try to purchase something advertised. They have explained that they are a huge company and can't be concerned with a single item customer such as myself. Each time I email or call I get a completely different story. I tried to get documentation about the insurance they are offering and the salesman put on a lot of pressure and would not let me add the insurance later, and when i finally found the documentation myself, I found that it did not provide the coverage for dropping the body that the salesman had insisted it did cover. Caveat emptor. It does not actually cover anything, if you read the document carefully. It is a level of interference before you return using your warranty coverage. Adorama is indispenable because of its inventory. I will always compare and use them, but I hate the experience more and more. It is very difficult to get past the sales process and just buy what you are trying to get. I have found it easier when I just go to the store, give them an item number or name, and refuse to discuss anything else.

Great camera

By

from Phoenix  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use this product for portraits and macro photography. The body size and weight are smaller than the D700 that I use as a back-up. This works best for me because I have small hands. The images are crisp, and the colors fantastic. The one thing that I don't is the selection wheel. It's difficult to move from one mode to another without using both hands. This is the only thing that bothers me about the camera.

D610

By

from Huntington Beach ,CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have owned a number of digital Cameras but this is my first full frame camera. I use it for work and for my own personal use. I looked at purchasing a more expensive D750. I rented both cameras before I decided what to buy and used both of them in the type of pictures I take. I settled on purchasing the D610 and it was well worth the money. Trying to purchase the D750 would really stretch the budget. However, I feel the D610 can fill all my needs, without breaking the bank . I only regret it does not have build in Wi-FI , the optional WU-1b mobil adapter in a pain but its usable . My only regrets with this camera is that I don't have a lot of full frame FX lenses, My DX lenses work with D610 camera but crops down the full frame . This somewhat defeats having a full frame camera. I only have one FX lens and it work great with the D610. The picture quality was great. If you purchase any full frame make sure you have money to purchase full frame lenses. If you are a Pro you may want to go with the upgraded D750 ,however, for the rest of us the D610 is a great camera and I recommend it.

Amazing piece of equipment

By

from Danbury, CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Coming from a Nikon D7100 for over a year I decided to sell it and buy this body since I already had my full frame lenses. Honestly I wasn't expecting much except having wider viewing angles being that this is full frame. The thing that really amazes me about this camera is the way it handles noise. I've been shooting with it for about four days and two events. I am truly amazed at the shutter speed and focusing system. I began to explore with D9/21/39 as my focus settings and I fell in love. This is specially handy when shooting moving subjects because it tracks the subject so well. I would not worry about having all the focus points compacted because it doesn't make much difference and you will honestly get used to it. Believe me, the D7100 that I came from had 12 MORE focus points which pretty much covered 70% of the viewing area but I easily became used to the compacted 39 in the D610. With the D7100 I had, I wouldn't dare go past ISO 800 without having to worry about significant noise issues. With my D610 I am comfortable to play with anything between 4000-6400. I shot a few frames with ISO 6400 then brought the exposure up by a full stop in Lightroom and was amazed at how much detail remained in the picture (see photo #2). I would HIGHLY recommend this to anybody switching to full frame (given that you have full frame lenses). I long debated whether I should buy this or save more money to buy the D750, but I must say I am truly happy with this camera.

Not the best in the line but beautiful.

By

from Irvine Ca,  -  Photography Student

To be of any value a person who reviews a product should be well qualified to do so. I am not a professional so I had to depend on experts in the field for their assessment. They were universal in giving me the confidence to buy a Nikon D 610. I am very happy with the camera. A subject I can attest to is the quality of the 'Users Manual' it is superbly thought out and has alleviated the fears I had in understanding the complexities of this unit. Take it one step at a time and don't leave the subject until you have mastered it.

Easy move from D7000 to full frame D610

By

from Fort Payne, Alabama  -  Photo Enthusiast

Since I upgraded a couple years ago from a D3000 to the D7000, I have planned on moving to a full frame at some point. With the exception of the Nikon 18-300mm I purchased for outdoor sports, the next four lenses I purchased were all FX. I have had the D610 for a couple weeks now and have taken about a thousand pictures. I have the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 (all purchased through Adorama). I have done portraits and landscapes and wow, the camera likes these lenses. The viewfinder is great - I have actually started to manually focus through the viewfinder becasue it seems much clearer than the D7000 where I mainly used live view when I had to manually focus. A lot of my pictures are taken indoors and I notice that I can live with an ISO of 6400 while I usually did not like going above 1600 with my D7000. I knew my D7000 inside and out and have had no trouble setting up the D610, the only learning curve for me is remembering that I don't have the 1.5 crop factor anymore. I was going to sell the D7000 and the Nikon 18-300mm but have decided to keep them to use for outdoor sports in good light and for when I want to get an equivalent reach of 450mm. To wrap up, I have to give it 5 stars at this point, it is everything I expected and more after researching the purchase for a year. I also want to thank Adorama for their next day service and the professionalism of their telephone sales staff. They always make me feel like a valued customer and I look forward to working with them in the future.

I use this camera for indoor photography and night photography also Landscape. When using VC or VR lenses ISO 400 or 800 works very good at night hand held. I have had three Nikon APS-C DSLR cameras and now that I have went to full frame I could never go back.

AMAZING (Unboxing video at bottom)

By

from Central Pennsylvania  -  Pro Photographer

I had been researching (obsessing according to my lovely wife) my upgrade path for months, reading reviews and comparing models. I even considered the Canon 5d MK3 ,which is a great option but I still feel that Canon is a bit behind in some areas. In the end I came back to the camera that seemed to be made just for me. A full frame, super fast, low light master of photo and video capture, the Nikon D610. Here's my unboxing video for the cam: http://youtu.be/0ezctHpSHNA

Excellent Image Quality

By

from Athens, GA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The D610 is capable of delivering stunning image quality, especially in terms of color, depth of field, and detail. While I prefer the ergonomics of the D700 & D800 series, the image quality and price of this camera combine to overcome any ergonomics shortfalls (a battery grip will help if you have larger hands). It's true there are similarities with the D7000, but the Fx imagery surpasses that of the Dx when it comes to creating depth in your image. For that reason alone it is worth your consideration if you are a Dx shooter thinking about Fx. But wait, there's more - more high ISO performance. I can safely push this camera to ISO 5000, whereas my D7000 topped out at 3200 (both needing a little noise removal at those ISOs).

Questions about this item:

Fran R  If I upgrade to a full-frame Nikon, can I use my Nikon D series lenses?
KAREN B  Yes you can. Once you put the lens on, the D610 automatically recognizes it and sets the required crop. That sounds great, but why get a full frame camera if your imagesare going to be cropped? You are not using the full frame features unless, you are going to use FX lenses as well.
Shopper  Does the D610 has an extended 4years warranty from Nikon USA?
marc M  Adorama I believe can offer extended warranties.... call them direct to inquire what is available.
James J  Does this camera have a built in level like the Canon 6D has for leveling horizontal & vertical images?
EUGENE C  It has a level in the settings menu, but it is a standalone feature for adjusting your camera on the tripod head. There is no level overlay in live view unfortunately.
