Nikon D610 Packed with features that rival cameras costing nearly twice as much, the Nikon D610 is the least expensive full-frame 35mm sensor DSLR that Nikon makes and is a great way to enter full frame photography. Nikon says the 24.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor produces clean, noise-free images from ISO 100-6400. It can be expanded to 25,600. The camera offers 39 autofocus sensors for wide area AF coverage, including 9 cross-type sensors and 7 center focus points that work down to f/8. users can toggle between 9, 21 and 39 point autofocus

An all-new Continuous Quiet Mode is a burst rate that is accomplished in live view, without raising or lowering the mirror. This allows for high-speed photography in quiet shooting situations. Burst rate is 6 frames per second.

Experience the passion of Nikon full-frame photography.
The power of a pro-level Nikon FX-format camera dazzling full-frame images, broadcast-quality 1080p video at your fingertips, superior low-light performance, faster frame rate up to 6 frames-per-second (fps), tack sharp autofocus with 39 focus points, built-in flash with Commander Mode, wireless photo sharing and much more is attainable in a compact, lightweight full-frame HD-SLR body. A new continuous quiet mode lets you capture a sequence of shots without the noise associated with the raising and lowering of the D-SLR's mirror. Optimized for full-frame shooting, streamlined for compactness and value, the D610 will fuel your photographic passion like never before

Nikon's Full-frame sensor raises the bar on image quality Stunning detail and NIKKOR lenses
Passionate photographers who seek uncompromised full-frame, high-resolution performance rely on Nikon FX-format HD-SLRs. With a level of performance only bested by Nikon's own D800 series D-SLRs, D610's 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, wide dynamic range and high S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio captures every detail with lifelike sharpness and low noise throughout its wide ISO range. Low-light performance is synonymous with Nikon shoot crystal clear images from ISO 100 to 6400, expandable down to 50 and up to 25,600 for extreme situations. EXPEED 3 processing system manages all that data with remarkable speed and accuracy, enabling up to 6 fps continuous shooting at full resolution in both FX and DX formats. Whether shooting people, landscapes or close-ups you'll marvel at D610's faithful color reproduction. Add Nikon's newest selection of affordable fast f/1.8 primes, compact wide ratio zooms with VR image stabilization or tele- and supertelephoto lenses and you'll see the full potential that the D610 offers.

Remarkable AF performance with compatibility up to f/8 sensitivity benefits action and wildlife photography
One of the keys to capturing razor-sharp images is a fast, precise autofocus system, and the D610 has one of the best. 39 tightly packed focus points with wide-area AF coverage offer endless compositional possibilities. Nine cross-type sensors in the center offer superior accuracy even when light and contrast are scarce. Seven center focus points work all the way down to f/8 for extended AF functionality with teleconverters and long-reach lenses. Switch between 9, 21 or 39 point AF, allowing for compositional freedom. D610's Scene Recognition System's subject identification and tracking information means enhanced performance by 3D Tracking and Auto Area AF. When shooting photos or HD video in Live View, Nikon's responsive contrast-detect AF activates for accurate fulltime autofocusing.

Exceptional performance and quality Flawless metering and onboard intelligence
The D610 delivers consistently beautiful images, thanks to Nikon's intel ligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II. Its 2,016 pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and the scene colors, all within the time it takes to press the shutter release button. That data is then referenced against an onboard image database for consistently accurate exposures, auto white balance, i-TTL flash and subject-tracking autofocus performance.

Broadcast-quality Full HD video at your fingertips Two video formats in one camera
Nikon is committed to developing HD-SLRs that empower and inspire filmmakers and video enthusiasts, and the D610 is proof of that. Shoot 1080p HD videos with selectable frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression. Bend time with 720p HD at 60p, 50p or 30p for ultra-smooth video playback of fast moving subjects, or create slow-motion footage during post processing. Manually adjust ISO, shutter speed and aperture, activate Live View shooting's fulltime AF with face-priority and subject tracking or manually focus. Experience dedicated inputs for an optional stereo mic and headphones for monitoring sound, still image exporting, uncompressed recording of video via HDMI out to an external recorder, simultaneous live view on external monitors and much more. Multi-area mode Full HD D-Movie gives you compositional freedom using FX or DX movie formats. Enhance your video with the dramatic perspectives and depth-of-field control of Nikon's full line of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses, and you'll dazzle with every video project.

Wi-Fi camera control and mobile sharing
Optional WU-1b wireless mobile adapter

With Wi-Fi compatibility, sharing photos is easier than ever. Connect the optional WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter and wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone, tablet or any compatible Wi-Fi enabled device. Use your smartphone to instantly upload your shots to the web or email them to a friend. Install Nikon's free Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility and remotely control the D610 and shoot from your smartphone or tablet!

Lighting studio optional
The D610's built-in pop-up flash offers up new shooting possibilities that other cameras simply can't match and not just in low-light situations. Even well lit subjects can benefit from a balanced fill flash for extra depth and dimension. And since the D610's flash integrates with Nikon's i-TTL system, it can act as a Commander and communicate crucial exposure information to two groups of remote flashes across three channels for accurate lighting and exceptional results. When you need the extra power, add an optional accessory Nikon Speedlight for more lighting possibilities.

A hobby that grows with you
Nikon's HD-SLR system is endlessly expandable. From legendary NIKKOR lenses and Nikon Speedlights for endless creative expression to the WU-1b Wireless Adapter for Wi-Fi sharing and camera control, your system can grow with you

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.

Because the firmware is similar I was able to bank setting for scenery and people very quickly in the U1 and U2. I absolutely love that feature. The photo quality is amazing in the D610, as it handles outdoor photos and indoor photos in florescent lighting just perfectly. This is an amazing camera, and it a big step up from the D7000, which was an amazing step up from my old D70.

Pretty good dollar value full frame camera with handling and performance you'd expect from a Nikon. Still has sensor spot problem as the D600. Very good low light sensor sensitivity, weight, shooting ergonomics. Disappointing autofocus in light conditions. It's a a good camera if you're upgrading from a DX, otherwise I'd wait for the next iteration of Nikon's small-size full frame camera.

Really disappointed got a bad reconditioned camera

By

from Oakland, CA

I give it one 1 because the camera I got was defective. When it was working, I really liked it, performed well, was easy to use because I am use to the Nikon. However after taking about a dozen or so shots, I got an error and that was the end, I was no longer able to use the camera. Because it was within the first 30 days Andorama was great with the refund. I decided I wont get another refurbished, I will wait awhile and get another camera.

Just as good

By

from Houston Tx  -  Pro Photographer

I am a professional photographer and have used many Nikon cameras and find the d610 to be just as good as any 800 models for most print size Low light it is great and the smaller focus point is not a problem for my shooting ,how often do most photographers us the out side focus point. I like this camera great tool

About my refurbished D610

By

from Winter Park, FL

I just received my 2nd D610, a refurbished body. With it came a pleasant surprise. After the initial setup I had to see the delivered shutter count. I snapped the camera's 1st image, which I loaded into PS CC. I drilled down the File menu to get to the EXIF data. The image number was "17." That means my refurbished D610 arrived with only "16" shutter actuations. That's like a new D610. So Nikon USA either repackaged the camera to sell at a lower price (for clearance) or it installed a brand new shutter assembly. Either way I couldn't care less. This is a remarkable camera to get started with FX.

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.

So Pleased with the 610!

By

from Maine

This refurbished d610 is fantastic! I was a little worried about shutter count on a refurb unit, but when it arrived a quick check revealed a count just under 1000. Haven't had any spotting issues that other reviewers have had so it may be hit or miss. If that is a concern for you, I'd pony up and pay the extra $200. Other than that, this camera hits all the checkmarks in a lot of ways that it's big brothers are delivering. Super impressed with how it handles low-light situations, delivering nice, clean, low-noise images. Looking for a full frame Nikon at a great price point? This one is just right.

Questions about this item:

John D  Am I be able to use DX lenses on the Nikon D 610 camera ? It would be interesting to know.. Thank you. John
Scott A  Yes. FX cameras can use DX lenses, however to avoid Vignetting, the DX crop mode is automatically selected by the camera. On the D610 camera with a DX lens mounted, the camera will automatically engage its built in DX crop mode, thus recording an image only from the center section of the sensor. This has the effect of being zoomed in a bit. The crop will show up in the viewfinder automatically.
Jerry T  Is it possible to know how many shutter clicks on one of your refurbished camera before you buy it?
Andrew R  Unfortunately the shutter count is unknown to us. These units have been refurbished by the manufacturer and then re-packed and factory sealed (packaging normally indicates that the unit has been factory refurbished).

Nikon 58mm Lens Review

Nikon recently released a new lens into its arsenal. A fast aperture with quick focus and once down to f4 very sharp across the image. This lens doesn't vignette in the corners on a full frame camera like the D610 I used to test it. Just one thing about it. It's 58mm...yes, you read that rig...Read More
