Dynamic range starts at over 14 stops at ISO 100 and remains above 10 stops through ISO 3200. And all this in a camera that is selling at Adorama for a price within reach of pro shooters and many serious amateurs. Browse compatible accessories.
For price/performance, the Nikon D610 is a winner. It is in a statistical dead heat with the D800 for DxOMark sensor scores, with a 94 overall score, 25.1 bit color depth and 14.4 dynamic range. The camera's low-light high-ISO score of 2925 is almost identical to that of the D4s. The camera has a 24.3MP sensor and a native ISO range of 100-6400, expandable to 25,600. 39 AF sensors, including 9 cross-type sensors and 6fps burst rate, are more than sufficient for most situations. It's the least expensive way to get started in full-frame Nikon photography.

The D610 delivers consistently beautiful images, thanks to Nikon’s intelligent 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.
With its fast, precise autofocus system, the D610 is one of the best. There are 39 tightly packed focus points with wide-area AF coverage offer endless 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.
