The Nikon D610 Digital SLR Camera Body is designed for the serious enthusiast photographer and builds upon the success of the smallest and lightest full-frame (FX) DSLR, the D600. The Nikon D610 offers many of the advanced features found in Nikon’s D4 and D800 cameras including the EXPEED 3 image processing engine, a 3.2” 912k dot resolution LCD screen and advanced video controls. The 24.3-megapixel sensor and wide ISO range of 100-6400 (extendable to 50-25,600) delivers outstanding levels of detail and tonal range, even in situations where there is minimal light. The newly developed shutter mechanism offers an increased shooting speed of 6 fps or 3 fps in its Quiet Continuous mode. The Nikon D610 records Full HD movies in 30p, 25p and 24p, with 60p, 50p and 25p options at 720p. Other notable features include a 39-point AF system with 9-cross types, an optical viewfinder with 100% coverage, time-lapse shooting, dual SD-card slots and a refined auto white balance system. More

November 2013 - "The Nikon D610 is a minor refresh of an already popular camera, so what has Nikon done to improve that model? Josie Reavely finds out in her full review of the Nikon D610. Read more here...
24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor
From true wide-angle to super telephoto, the 14-bit A/D conversion and excellent signal-to-noise ratio enable images of remarkable quality with low noise and wide dynamic range even at high ISO sensitivities. Offering an ISO range of 100–6400, extendable up to 25,600 (equivalent) and down to 50 (equivalent), low light capability is superb. The camera’s intelligent noise reduction systems manage noise without sacrificing fine details, allowing superb flexibility under all lighting conditions: images are crisp and clean, even at higher ISO settings.
EXPEED 3 image processing
Equipped with the same state-of-the-art EXPEED 3 image-processing engine as Nikon’s flagship D4, the Nikon D610 makes light work of data-rich tasks without sacrificing speed and quality. 16-bit image processing offers richer colours and tones than ever before, delivering smooth gradations with abundant detail and tone all the way up the scale to pure white, even when shooting in JPEG.
Enhanced continuous shooting
High speed continuous shooting at approximately 6 fps in both FX and DX formats for up to 100 shots. This makes it easy to capture decisive moments with moving subjects, such as an approaching train or a wild bird taking flight. The D610 also offers a quiet continuous shutter-release mode (Qc) for quiet continuous shooting at approximately 3 fps.
Improved Auto white balance
Greater optimisation of image analysis of the most common scenes enables Auto white balance to achieve more natural colour reproduction for images captured indoors as well as outdoors in most common scenes.
39 focus points (9 cross-type), up to f/8 compatible
Compatible with lenses up to f/8 combined open aperture sharp shots are possible even in challenging light conditions. A variety of AF-modes such as Dynamic-area AF and 3D-tracking maintain focus on even the smallest subjects, however unpredictable their movements may be.
Compact, light, durable
Despite adoption of the Nikon FX format, the D610 is a model that is portable enough to be easily taken anywhere. In addition the magnesium alloy top and rear covers reduce weight and maintains strength and durability.
Frame rates: Full HD (1080p) movies can be recorded in 30p, 25p and 24p, with 60p, 50p and 25p options at 720p. Full HD movie clips can be up to 29 minutes 59 seconds long. Multi-area mode: Full HD (1080p) recording is possible in both FX- and DX-based formats, enabling exceptional freedom of expression. High-fidelity audio control: with the Nikon D610 movies sound as good as they look. A microphone jack allows use of an external stereo microphone for crisp sound recording and there is an audio out for external headphones. Uncompressed HDMI output: the Nikon D610 offers the possibility to output an uncompressed live video stream at 1080p to external recorders, and output will automatically drop to 1080i if use of an external monitor is detected. The uncompressed data is output at the designated image size and frame rate, and is clean of the information overlay that can be simultaneously displayed on the camera’s TFT monitor.
Share images immediately, or control the camera remotely, using a smartphone or tablet and Nikon’s optional WU-1b Mobile Adapter.* Highly sensitive autofocus: benefit from superior subject acquisition with the Multi-CAM4800 39-point AF system. Compatible with lenses up to f/8 combined open aperture and sensitive down to -2 EV, the D610 shoots sharp, even under the light of the full moon.
* Compatible with iOS and Android smart devices. Requires use of a dedicated Wireless Mobile Utility application that can be downloaded to your smart device for free from Google Play and the Apple App Store™. Android, Google, Google Play, YouTube, and other marks are trademarks of Google Inc.
In-camera time-lapse function
Create time-lapse photography through simple menu operations, with no need for elaborate calculations and editing. Use interval timer shooting to trigger the shutter at preset intervals. Use time-lapse photography to save images as movie files and view slow action in fast playback, with playback rates from 24 to 36,000 times faster than normal.
Dual-axis electronic virtual horizon
You can confirm the camera's position relative to the horizontal plane and its pitch (forward or rear rotation) using the LCD monitor or the viewfinder.
Built-in flash commander function enables a variety of creative lighting
Furthermore, the built-in flash incorporates a commander function that supports Advanced Wireless Lighting. It can control a single group or two independent groups containing several remote Speedlights wirelessly. By lighting from a wide range of directions, you can enjoy shooting with a variety of lights, for example, shooting flowers vividly, rendering face lines and details sharply and reproducing the subtle textures of subjects.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
not a big update, but a better camera
By The Photo Guy
About Me Professional
I had a d600 with none of the issues that some had, but upgradedTo the D610 because of the newer processor. Not really a big improvement ( showing how good the D600 was ) but really worth getting if you need a full frame Nikon.

Plenty of Bang for your Buck!
I upgraded from a D300S as I was tempted by the enhanced low light capabilities of this model and the bigger cropping options a larger sensor affords me. I have used it to shoot three weddings and so far so good. I was able to shoot without flash in both churches and hotels at 1000 ASA with very usable results. Obviously there is grain but it is not intrusive and only the enthusiast would notice the difference. This feature alone makes the upgrade a worthy one. Sharpness is also much improved and the shallower depth of field with FFT lenses also make it easier to attain nice bokeh. I went for the Tamron 24/70 F2.8 as I could not afford the extra cash for the Nikon and the Tamron also has image stabilisation which is a must for me.One of my main gripes with all Nikon cameras is my uncanny ability to knock the focus switch into manual or continual focus without knowing I have done so. This design flaw has cost me many shots and when you are shooting a wedding it's no joke. I have often considered switching brands because of it but at least on the D610 they have changed it a little to make it point inwards towards the body and so far I have yet to successfully knock it from single shot. Whilst on that subject you do lose the option of switching to continual focus quickly so that may have something to do with it being a different design but I rarely need to do so, so it's not a problem for me but if you are a sports or wildlife snapper then bear it in mind (you have to press the switch in and select C using the rear thumb wheel).I considered the retro DF as I am old school at heart but with no pop up flash/video and almost 1K more I am not sure where the money has gone? When you look at it in those terms the 610 is a steal.
Money well spent
This was a replacement for a cropped sensor camera 7 i wont regret it.First months use i am highly delighted with no regrets & at the price i paid for it.
My first full frame DSLR and I would recommend it to anyone. Brilliant camera does all I require.

Stepping up to FX ? Read on........
Anyone familiar with a D7000 or a D7100 will find the look, feel and use of the D610 very familiar. At first glance, these are all difficult to distinguish but the differences soon become very clear when you take the camera out for a spin.In normal lighting and allowing to differences in crop factor, the D610 and the D7100 produce images that are very difficult to separate though the saturation of colours from the FX sensor appear more natural if not slightly deeper than the leading DX model.Working in RAW, the dynamic range of the D610 is also slightly ahead and it is possible to recover a little more from highlights and shadows than the already brilliant D7100.Focus on the D610 is however perhaps a fraction slower to respond than the D7100 and there is no doubt that the 39 points on the D610 is a disappointing backward step compared to the accurate and more flexible 51 points of the D7100. In use, this means that recomposing is more often required compared to the 7100. Whilst not a big problem, it is certainly more inconvenient.Thus far then, you could say overall, honours are even.When you consider definition and image sharpness, then with the D7100, due to the removal of the anti-aliasing filter, the 7100 creeps back in front and takes another step when you consider that a bag full of DX lenses can be bought for the price of just a couple of FX zooms! So why would you bother with the 610 then? We'll, in my view, there are three good reasons to consider it.Firstly, there is definitely an overall superiority in the image quality from the two sensors despite the sharpness of the 7100.Secondly, there is an advantage in dynamic range that means more detail is captured which in the end allows the editor more flexibility and creative capacity.Finally however is what for me makes the whole thing worth while and that is low light / high ISO performance. On paper, both cameras have the same capabilities in terms of settings at the high ISO end. In practice however, above ISO 2000 the D7100 begins to show obvious noise ( luminance and chroma) which at ISO 3200 or above makes even black and white a stretch since noise reduction software makes the final image too soft and lower levels of processing produce a grain which could be a little too heavy for some tastes. By contrast however, the D610 produces images that are certainly useable up to ISO 6400 and for some, the performance at even higher values might be acceptable.In conclusion then, does the D610 live up to expectations? In my view, yes. I believe the image quality is superior and I have always been delighted with the D7100. However for me, the clear advantage of the low light performance is what justifies the decision. If like me you prefer natural light over flash and you encounter situations where even an f1.4 needs more than ISO 3200, then this offers an affordable solution provided you can get a good trade in or you want to keep you DX assets as a backup.I have shot around 3000 exposures since I received the 610 and apart from a few spoils and random experiments that I tried to test the limits of the camera, I can say I gave been surprised and delighted with the results and for me, certainly no regrets.I would say though, if Nikon ever released a 610 upgrade that combined the best of the D7100's features with 610's sensor, at the more affordable price of the 610 today, I would trade both my cameras in tomorrow as it would for me be perfection indeed.
I use this camera for portraiture and as a walk around body that is light and slightly less conspicuous than it's larger cousins. it has a fast shutter burst and. Focuses quickly and cleanly. The cameras features are relatively simple although I can say that personally I know there are many features/tools that I haven't used.I've shot a Ginger Baker record cover and photos that are to be used giant poster sized with this camera and both are huge successes........Nikon at it's best!

About Me Semi-pro Photographer
What a wonderful camera. I have upgraded from D7000 and it has been easy. I was a bit off, you know, do I want to learn how to use another camera? I had just got so used to my D7000, but I took the plunge and wow, the results are stunning. The camera feels so good in the hand and the images are tack sharp, the dynamic range is amazing. I went for the 28-300 lens and this pairing is a dream. None of my prime lens have really had an outing ! This surprised me as I do love a prime lens. Low light capability is beyond my expectations and even at high end ISO I get brilliant and very usable images.This is my first full frame and I chose it over the D800 as I did not want to replace my computer as well to cope with the large file size of that camera. I have not regretted it and would highly recommend this camera. Worth every penny

Stunning Images - just one gripe
By Front Element
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast, Professional
I use this camera as my main stock photography device an it is really an amazing piece of kit.I upgraded from a D700 which I was also very happy with, but this does more (including HD video) in a smaller package with better image quality / noise handling and larger file size (no more upsizing images to reach stock agency minimum file sizes!).
