The Nikon D610 DSLR Camera features a full-frame, FX-format 24.3 megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable image detail and low-light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 25600. The sensor and processor work together to enable high image quality with a wide dynamic range and high signal-to-noise ratio that produces both smooth color and tonal gradations with low noise levels for enhanced overall clarity. These two technologies also combine to provide a wealth of speed throughout the D610, including a continuous shooting rate of 6 fps and a quiet shooting mode that allows the camera to record sequential imagery without the mirror raising or lowering.

A Multi-CAM 4800 AF sensor is integrated into the camera's design and produces fast autofocus speeds using a 39-point array to precisely acquire focus in a wide array of lighting conditions. Seven of the central AF points are compatible with f/8 or faster lenses, which greatly enhances the autofocus performance with longer, telephoto lenses used in combination with teleconverters. When recording movies or working in live view, a contrast-detection focusing method works to continuously deliver accurate focus with subject-tracking and face-detection capabilities using the full-time servo mode.

Full HD 1080p video is supported up to 30 fps in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format and manual control over the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture is possible for optimized control over the look and feel of movies. Uncompressed recording is possible with an optional external recorder connected via the HDMI port and, additionally, both headphone and microphone ports are available for refined control over recorded sound.

Extending the D610's connectivity, an accessory terminal is compatible with the optional WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter and GP-1A GPS Unit for wireless image sharing, remote camera control, and geotagging capabilities.

24.3MP FX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 3 Image Processor
The 24.3 megapixel full-frame (FX) CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor work in tandem to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 6400, which is further expandable to ISO 25600. The processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including support for full HD 1080p movie recording, a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 6 fps, and a continuous quiet mode for recording a sequence of images at 3 fps without the raising and lowering of the camera's reflex mirror. The sensor can also record imagery in DX format and will automatically switch to and support the use of DX-dedicated lenses when attached.
Multi-CAM 4800 Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the exceptional image quality is an apt AF system that employs 39 distinct AF points to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions, from -1 to +19 EV. An intelligent Scene Recognition System, typically reserved for exposure metering, benefits the focusing performance by analyzing and identifying subjects to suit panning and tracking-based shooting styles. Depending on the situation, 9, 21, or 39 point arrays can be selected from and seven centrally-located AF points are compatible with f/8 or faster lenses, extending the auto focusing abilities of the longest lenses used in conjunction with teleconverters. When using this phase-detection focusing method, selectable AF-area modes include: Single-point AF mode, Dynamic-area AF mode, 3D-tracking mode, and Auto-area AF mode.

When working in live view, for either still or movie shooting, a contrast-based AF system is employed to acquire focus precisely and can function in continuous, full-time servo mode to better-suit working with moving subjects. Four distinct AF-area modes are available when using the contrast-detection focusing method: Face-priority AF, Wide-area AF, Normal-area AF, and Subject-tracking AF.
Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering
The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II utilizes a 2016-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.
Full HD 1080p Movie Recording
Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in 30, 25, and 24 fps frame rates, as well as HD 720p in multiple frame rates, in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. During recording, manual exposure control is possible through adjustment of the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture setting and full-time autofocus can be employed, with face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities.

For enhancing the sound of recordings, both an external microphone input is available as well as a headphone jack for real-time monitoring of recorded sound. An HDMI output is also incorporated into the design and, besides enabling HD playback of video, also supports uncompressed recording of HD video by using an optional external recorder. Regardless of the lens in use, multi-area full HD D-Movie enables you to choose between FX or DX recording areas of the sensor to modify the composition and gain additional reach from lenses, as well as expanded control over the depth of field.
Built-In Pop-Up Flash and i-TTL Support
The built-in pop-up flash extends its functionality beyond acting as a source of additional light by also serving as a wireless Commander, capable of communicating i-TTL exposure information to two groups of remote flashes across three channels for refined control over strobe lighting. A hot shoe is also available and supports Nikon i-TTL and Creative Lighting System with compatible optional Speedlights.
Camera Design
Even with a large FX-format sensor inside, the D610's overall form-factor remains relatively compact and lightweight, enhancing its portability and travel potential. Beside the optical pentaprism viewfinder with 100% frame coverage and 0.7x magnification, a 3.2" 921k-dot LCD monitor is available for clear, bright image playback, menu navigation, and live view monitoring. Dual SD memory card slots support a range of recording capabilities, including overflow recording and JPEG/RAW partitioning.

An accessory terminal supports the use of the optional WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter for Wi-Fi sharing of images and video as well as remote camera control from a linked iOS or Android device with the Nikon Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility application. The GP-1A GPS Unit is also supported for adding locational data to images' metadata for geotagging applications.
Other Camera Features
  • Picture Control modes can be directly accessed via a dedicated button and allow you to set predefined looks to imagery in-camera, and include Landscape, Monochrome, Neutral, Portrait, Standard, Vivid, and user-customizable settings.
  • An intelligent noise reduction method analyzes the noise appearing in an image or movie and then automatically determines the proper amount of correction to apply in order to maintain the best balance of noise and image detail.
  • Auto ISO sensitivity control allows you to select a minimum shutter speed at which camera shake can be controlled from and then will automatically set the ISO value in order to best render the scene. A maximum sensitivity level can also be set in order to maintain overall noise levels.
  • RAW (NEF) files can be recorded as lossless compressed or compressed at either 12 or 14-bit depth.
  • Active D-Lighting helps to preserve both highlight and shadow details when working in contrast-rich scenarios, such as backlit lighting. Utilizing the EXPEED 3's processing power, a more controlled image will be produced with brightness values closer to how they are naturally seen. This mode is suitable for working with moving subjects.
  • Built-in HDR works to extend the tonal and exposure range of a single image by recording two separate exposures and blending them together in order to gain greater highlight and shadow details with an extended range of mid-tones. The smoothness of the edge where the two separate exposures meet can be adjusted for more apparent softness to benefit images with a greater range of exposure values. This mode is best suited for working with stationary subjects.
  • Automated time-lapse photography allows you to record images at designated intervals and then have them automatically saved as a video file for fluid playback of a slow-motion activity occurring over time.
  • Lateral chromatic aberration reduction, auto distortion control, and vignette correction are all supported when a NIKKOR lens is attached and work to reduce these optical anomalies in-camera for higher quality imagery.
  • An in-camera virtual horizon can detect both rolling (horizontal inclination) and pitching (forward or rear inclination) directions and display an electronic level on the LCD when working in live view. The rolling direction of tilt can also be displayed within the viewfinder.
  • Top and rear covers are constructed from magnesium alloy for a lightweight, yet rigid and durable body design that maintains dust-prevention and water-resistance performance. The interface covers are also designed in a divided manner to further ensure dust- and weather-protection to these ports.
  • The highly precise and durable shutter mechanism has been tested for 150,000 cycles and incorporates a self-diagnostic shutter monitor to maintain precision with minimal shutter speed variance.
  • Scene modes: Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close up, Night portrait, Night landscape, Party/Indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dust/Dawn, Pet portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn colors, Food, Silhouette, High key, and Low key
  • Language support: Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Ukrainian.

I originally purchased the D600 and after much ado, got a refund. The D600 was magical with regard to image quality. Such wonderful potential. But the spots were a real problem.

The D610 is just as magical with regard to quality. It feels great to work with. I like the camera a lot for its potential with regard to creating beautiful landscapes and cityscapes.

I find the focus system a challenge. I am hoping that this is something I can fix with more experience/usage of the camera rather than the camera itself being the problem!

Unfortunately, after about 2k shots, I have found spots on upper left corner on images shot with sky background at f10. It's a bit of deja vu but I am hoping this does not spread like it did with the D600.

Sometimes cleaning this up in post posed real problems with the D600 images. At this price point, it's not acceptable to be forced to work on an image in post due to spots. There will certainly be times I want to shoot at high apertures and so I expect to be able to use the full range of the camera without compromise. It becomes especially important for images I want to submit somewhere.

I've included a picture with spots on upper left. This one is very easy to clean up so not a real issue. However, if spreading occurs with further usage of the camera (like it did with the D600, even after the shutter was replaced) then I am really going to regret having switched from Canon!

I look forward to testing out and working with the video aspect of the D610.

Sensor spot problem still there

I bought the D610 after reading reviews that said Nikon had fixed the sensor oil/dust spoting problem that existed on the D600. Unfortunatly the problem still exists on some D610's and mine is one of them. After around 2,000 shots I noticed spots from something on my sensor. I called Nikon and they said to send it in for cleaning, which I did (shipping at my expense). Got the camera back, tested it, and with the first few shots had the same problem. Called Nikon and went thru the same routine, got the camera back, and within the first 10 shots another spot appeared. So, now I'm fighting with Nikon to try to get a new camera. Not much fun after spending [$] for the D610.

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

    I was on the fence for quite a while weather to get the D610 or the D750. If the D750 had a max shutter speed of 1/8000 and a sync speed of 250 it would have been a no brainer. Most of the features of the D750 seem to be video oriented and I do not shoot video. The articulating screen is limited and not a feature I need, as I frame my shots through the view finder. Though the 750 has a higher ISO sensitivity, I felt the difference didn't justify the price difference. With that said, I ordered the D610. My only hesitation about getting the D610 was the oil spot issue that plagued the D600. I am happy to say that I am totally impressed and happy with my D610 purchase. No oil spots!! It has exceptional low light performance, it's light and ergonomically feels great with a 50mm f/1.8 as well as a 70-200mm f/2.8. Don't let the center located focus points issue dissuade you. Grab your focus, re-compose and you're set. This camera is a great value for anyone that wants to shoot full frame. Just get it! You won't be disappointed.

    Painless Jump To Full Frame

    By CHK

    from Evansville, IN

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

    The D610 has a nice smooth feel to it, much like the one I replaced with it, the D7100. They are very similar with the D610 being full frame. I haven't had it long enough to do an in-depth critique but it would surprise me very much if I found anything too objectionable about it. I like the camera's feel, size, features and similarity with my previous DSLR. Using it for the first time was like re-acquainting with an old friend who had got smarter and prettier since the last meeting. I would recommend it to friend and foe alike.

    Nikon 610 body purchase

    By Bob P.

    from Collierville, Tn.

    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

    This past year, has found me with a dilemma my local camera store closed after one hundred years in business. that left me with know place to go but to mail order, and that meant out of town service from someone that I will not know.

    I chose B&H photo because of another local photographer talked to me about their dealings and never had a bad word to say. The second dilemma was my trusty D7000 had to have the shutter replaced, so that left me with the specter of if it failed, then I was out of cameras. you can only rent for so long. At this point, I decided to go Full frame. I flipped flopped between the 750 and the 610. I picked the 6510 becauseI am a shooter not a videographer..

    I decided to bite the bullet and Oder the D610 along with some Tripod plates and
    And the order went off without a hitch. I got the order by December 23rd and am now shooting as much as I can.
    I shoot fashion, wildlife, architecture,and portraiture.The difference in a full frame camera and crop factor is night and day. As good as the 7000 is, it is outclassed by the 610. I am a little cranky abut my lens selection, meaning a 35mm should be a 35mm, not a 52mm, a 85mm must be a 85mm Ect. The crop factor just does not cut. As for my experience with B&H, I would very highly recommend them to a friend. I might just come back for a second body soon I have to finish upgrading my lens to full frame and get rid of my crop factor glass but the next stop will be B&H photo.

      Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      I got the D610 as a replacement for the D600. The D600 was a great camera, with exception of the Sensor Oil Spotting Issue, which Nikon never formally acknowledged. Truly looking forward to having that issue resolved with the D610, since I really liked the D600 in all other ways, I took it on my next trip, which happened to be the Arctic region; so no small trip. Yet again, pictures were affected by the oil spots, and on a subsequent Photography workshop, the spots got really bad. Not a great representation for Nikon in front of 11 very accomplished photographers. Am I going to receive the same poor service from Nikon on the D610 as I received on the D600? Is this the end of Nikon as a reliable brand? I hope not; it's been the only brand of digital cameras that I have worked with. As for the D600 and the D610: I personally would caution against purchasing either.

      Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      nikon did this with d600. however it had a spot problem.then nikon released d610 just for replacing dust and spot problem. i will cut it short; IMO It is an awesome camera both for consumers and professionals. Image quality is great, focus speed is really good, design is fine. Weather sealing also an advantage. ITS SMALL and LIGHT! dont underestimate this as well..
      Every year new model is coming. I also used d750. It has almost no significant difference. If you wanna see improvement i suggest you to wait at least 2 processers; like this is expeed 3 - d750 expeed 4 .. if you wanna see some serious improvement go for expeed 5 or more. by those words what i wanna tell that this camera still rocks.
      maybe its iso can be a problem. canon eos 6d has better ISO performance but honestly i sold pictures of d610 in 2000 iso without any complains.
      overall d610 is an superior camera.

      Awesome FF for Sports Too

      By Bryson

      from Valencia California

      Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

      I basically bought this camera as a affordable way to get better image quality using a full frame sensor while spending more money on high quality lenses. At 6FPS and a limited buffer you can't simply spray and pray and calculated timing during shooting is needed. Overall it's an amazing FF camera with excellent IQ, DR, and fairly quick auto focus. I'd highly recommend this camera body, especially at the reduced price and have more funds left over for the best glass you can find. Many of my images are used for for large banners and trade show signs and the image quality holds up perfectly.

        I bought this camera when I started working as a 2nd photographer for my friend's wedding/event business. It became my workhorse, primary camera right away. It's consistent, reliable, rugged, with great battery life.

        Fast start-up speed, fast/no-lag shutter, I have yet to miss a shot.

        The dual SD card slots mean I can backup the photos on the fly.

        When needed, I can put in the Eye-Fi card to transfer photos wirelessly to my smartphone. Though I wish the camera comes with a built-in wifi.

        Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

        I use it for everything. I don't believe in limiting my self, or my work.

        The light performance, and Bokeh from prime lenses are very great; better when shooting RAW, as JPG's can not really be changed if something is off.

        The only think that is not so great, is it is a dust magnet, like all other DSLRs.

        Can not wait till I get the D750 though.

          Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          I have purchased the D-610 about 6 weeks ago and am very pleased with the all around quality. I replaced my D-700 with this camera and the photos are better than the D-700! No dust or oil spots as it appears fixed. I am extremely happy with this Nikon as I have been with all the Nikon photo equipment I have purchased over the years. My experience with Nikon has been A1 quality and extreme durability.

          Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

          Everything I need and non of the extras. 24 MP is more than enough and its full frame. The DR is great and the build is excellent. Its not a D700 body and doesnt have its AF. I wouldve prefer the AF of the D700 on this camera, but oh well. But enough with geek stuff...its a great camera.

          As for the oil and dust, no problem at all. I had a speck of dust on my prism and mirror, but nothing a cleaning can fix. First, its a DSLR and a DSLR is not a close system like a PS camera. Foreign debris will get in and should be clean regularly after a day of long shoots. Learn to clean your expensive investment.

            I use this camera for portraits and events and it has worked flawlessly. The images are very sharp and the skin tone is spot on. The quality of the high ISO images is extremely good and even at 5000 ISO, the images are great.

                I'm photo enthusiast who was looking for replacement for my old Nikon D50. I waited for the new d7200 and couldn't decide between it and D610, after reading the spec of new DX Nikon Flagship I found the D610 still great camera. The price is right and with all the extra stuff it's a steal.

                I haven't gotten to use it much so I can't talk about image quality. I am a nikon user so this camera, for the money, would be a great buy if it focused properly. I guess i got a bad one but this makes 2/2 nikons with poor autofocus out of the box. When compared to the liveview focus the range finder AF is off. There is a function in the software called "AF FINE TUNE" and for two of my lenses I had to push it to the edge of its range to get my images closer to focus. Nikon takes its sweet time handing these issues and my brand new camera will hopefully get here soon. They even wanted me to pay for shipping until I told them I would return it and buy a sony. Quality control is really not great here and the service rep told me AF fine tune is only for professionals. lol so the rest of us don't need images in focus?

                In the end of day, are you making money as photographer or simply a die hard enthusiast? This camera is what most people need with decent FX lens.If you simply have less than 2000 actuation on your DSLR, you made a wrong investment.

                I moved from d5100 DX to this bad boy. The d810 was in my price range as well, but it wasnt practical since Im not traveling around the world and abusing it in every way possible. I didnt need the extra features and a tougher body. Maybe a D900 in the future??

                  I've had my D610 for almost a year now. I have 64,000 shutter actuations on it (yes, 64,000 in one year). I shoot lots of my kids' high school sports, etc. Just finished a 2-day swim meet: 4,350 shots on a freshly-charged Nikon EN-EL15 and still have 11% battery left! For swimming I wish it had the D750/D4s focus groups so I could get a better keep rate on the "hand-off" dives of the relays, but overall it is a sweet camera.

                  I bought this camera to change my nikon d7000, that was great. I was very excited to have a FF camera, but after a few days I noticed that pictures had a green color in the LCD screen. I read that this problem is common in the d810. Nikon is having a lot of problems. If I would not have expensive nikon lens, I would change to canon.

                    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                    As a Christmas gift to myself I got the Nikon d610, an upgrade from the Nikon d3100. I am so happy with my purchase. I also purchased a Nikon 85mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens. At first I had a little bit of a learning curve but once I started playing with the camera and shooting EVERYTHING plus viewing youtube video's I started learning how to work this amazing camera.
                    I'm primarily a headshot photographer and the difference is night and day going from the d3100 to the d610! The images are amazingly clear and the color and bocah are beautiful.
                    I'm still learning all the functions on this great camera. Over all, I'm a happy camper!

                    Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only):

                    I upgraded a couple years ago from my beloved D40x to the D7000, I have always pined for full frame camera which is good which is not plagued by problems (Nikon D600) even after shelling 2k. I was ok with D7000 as an upgrade but was never completely impressed by it. I have had the D610 for about a year now and have taken about a thousand pictures. I have the a few primes all nikkor 50mm and 85mm both 1.8 and I must say they are all that I need right now. I have done portraits and landscapes with the combinations and I'm hoping to add a few more lens to my bag whenever I can afford them.
                    Coming to the camera itself the layout of the camera is similar to that of the D7000 so I did not have any learning curve as supposed to my first move from D40x to D7000. It feels rugged enough for my use I don't plan on taking it harsh conditions that require pro-level weather sealing.
                    I used to really like the D7000+50mm1.8 combo but now with D610 this lens truly comes to life the pictures are just amazing. A lot of my pictures are taken indoors, while I usually did not like going above 1600 ISO with D7000 now I'm ok with pictures upto ISO of 6400. Coupe of disappointments for me are 1) The focus points are too much close not spread enough to use the FX sensor 2) when you use crop mode or the camera uses crop mode automatically when you put a DX lens is the resolution of the picture which drops dramatically which means I have to buy really expensive zoom lens (Nikon 70-200mm ii) for shooting wildlife. It was actually a mistake to sell my D7000.
                    It is a great upgrade into the FX world with few quirks hence the 4 stars at this point, it is everything I expected and more after researching the purchase for a year. I also want to thank B&H Video for their next day service and the goodies included as a part of the purchase. I also bought a Vello Battery grip for the extra battery which is a nice addition to an excellent camera.
