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.

Included with the D610 body is the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens; a versatile wide-angle to portrait-length zoom lens. This lens features VR (Vibration Reduction) to minimize the appearance of camera shake and also integrates one extra-low dispersion element and three aspherical elements to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and enhance the overall clarity and contrast.

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.
AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens
The included 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens covers an array of oft-used focal lengths and serves as a highly versatile lens for everyday shooting applications. VR image stabilization works to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to four shutter speed steps to benefit working in low-light conditions and a Silent Wave Motor provides fast, smooth, and quiet focusing performance that is well-suited to video applications. One extra-low dispersion element and three aspherical elements are integrated into the optical design to reduce aberrations and distortions and improve contrast, clarity, and color fidelity. A multi-layered Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to lens elements to minimize flare and ghosting for optimized light transmission.
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 this 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

        Upgraded from a Nikon D90 and have to say that the results from this powerhouse are simply fantastic. Well balanced camera that feels great in my hand and all the adjustment controls are well placed. FAst buffer allowed rapid capture of soccer games and of children running about. Highly recommend.

          Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

          So far I'm very happy with the camera. I had been using a DX Nikon set up for the last few years and was ready to make the leap. I toyed with the idea of moving to an FX setup for sometime now and was going back and forth between switching over to the Cannon 6D or of course staying with Nikon and going the D610 route. I'm happy I stayed with Nikon and have been using this camera for about two weeks now. It handles and works just as I was hoping it would and am pleased with the results it's able to produce. I use this camera for

            So far I'm enjoying the camera. This is my first time using an FX camera and I was moving over from a Nikon DX set up. Much better camera overall, the settings are pretty much the same although this camera is able to do much more and then some. Right now I'm working with the kit lens and have to say this thing seems really sharp. I wasn't ready to jump right into a D800 and this will hopefully be my camera over the next 2-3 years.

            • Real Estate Architecture

            Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

            I shoot real estate and architecture professionally with the D610 and the 24-85mm kit lens. I also use a Rokinon 24mm Tilt Shift Lens with my D610. I've gotten excellent reviews from my clients. Having migrated from the D-60 to the D-5200 to the D-610, I've been impressed mostly with the live view and super crisp focus. Having 2 memory cards with 1 in backup mode is a stress reliever on jobs where I have to get in and get out with only 1 on-location opportunity.

            On the negative side, I'm disappointed with the automatic exposure bracketing maximum of 3 shots. I like shooting 5 exposures in my brackets with 1 stop intervals... so I shoot all my HDR jobs in M mode instead of using the built in bracket feature.

            Overall it's a great professional grade camera - highly recommended.

              Everything works fine except the audio auto focus confirmation does not work. Going thru it with Nikon technician on the phone, and she concluded that it was malfunctioned and asked me to send it in for repair. Malfunction right out of the box is a disappointment for someone going through D70, D80, D90, and D7000 plus a few film cameras. Too big a hassle to send it in. I just keep it as it is. Thumb down for quality control from a loyal Nikon shooter for over three decades.

                  Great ergonomics we come to expect with Nikon. The lens is pretty decent for a kit lens too. I am happy with this camera and lens.

                  I recently got Into the world of dslr. I first picked up a nikon d7100. While the d7100 was an excellent camera by nikon I found myself wanting the dof of a full frame and better lowlight performance. The d610 has exceeded my expectations. I recently took it with me on a trip out of town to San Francisco. The color rendition is beautiful, the auto focus is fast, and the iso performance for a nighttime tour of Alcatraz was unbelievably good for this entry level full frame. I find that the 39 point auto focus; while it does not cover the entire frame it if efficient enough. Had I purchased a canon 6d instead I feel I would have felt disappointed. But the d610 you won't regret it

                    Great camera just used it for a tennis tournament and the iso performance is great. I made the transition from a nikon d7000 and it has been very pleasant since it's pretty much the same camera on the menus and the outside. I am looking forward to take advantage of the resolution of the sensor in the next weeks shooting some landscapes.

                      Loving this camera so far!
                      This has replaced my primary go to DSLR the old D300.
                      I cannot even begin to emphasize how awesome it is to have no crop factor on my focal lengths. The full frame sensor is amazing - super sharp, yeilds very nice color tones even in JPEG compression.

                      Feels good and "heavy" in my hands, not too heavy, but not so light that it's obvious it's a pro-sumer camera.

                      my one complaint is the ergonomics! IDK why Nikon went with this dual button functionality to toggle the change in ISO, WB or File quality. I should be able to quickly change any of those settings without having to press 2 buttons simultaneously. very silly of Nikon to do that. they seem to think the "pro" ergonomics button/menu layout is reserved only for the way overpriced D4 and D4s.

                      Other than that. Love this camera! Nice job, Nikon! (and glad to see the oil leak/Autofocus issue didn't flow over to the D610 from the D600).

                        I chose this over the D800 because of size of the camera as well as image size. For my use, 24mp is a good size. I've noticed much improved high ISO performance over my 6 year old D300 which is no big surprise.

                        One of my favorite features is Delayed exposure. I set it to 3 seconds when I'm shooting landscapes. Mirror lifts, then 3 seconds later the Shutter opens. No need the switch over to mirror up.

                        The Self Timer feature is updated to include interval features, you can set the timer to shoot from 1-9 shots from 1/2 second to 3 seconds apart.

                          I was looking for a camera that would have allowed me to get professional shots that would have led me to work in all kind of lighting situations.
                          I am incredibly happy with my choice. The D800 is considered to be the best now, but I feel that the D610 is a great choice too for a more affordable price. If you are a time-lapse photographer, you can set the specific time frame on the D610 too. It is worth considering it.

                                Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

                                After shooting DX format for years with my wonderful D7000 I finally decided to take the next step up and go full frame with the D610. The images are definitely much sharper, clearer and with much less noise than with my DX camera, especially in very low light situations.

                                The transition from my D7000 to the D610 was effortless and smooth; nearly everything is in the same place including the menu structure. My accessories including batteries and memory cards all fit. I often have to check the label on the front to be sure which camera I'm picking up.

                                But in order to do proper justice to the improved image quality I find that you really need to be using a tripod and a remote or self-timer. Quickie hand-held shooting often puts your images right back to DX quality. My next step up after this camera body will be some top quality lenses but that may wait a while ($$$.)

                                Comments about the bigger, brighter viewfinder image do not apply -- it is essentially the same as with the D7000. Comments about the reduced viewfinder area for the AF points have turned out to be a non-issue. I do like the ability to shoot HDR/exposure bracketing sets at +/-3 EV instead of the previous +/-2 EV on the D7000. That has come in handy in several situations. And after some 800 shots I do not notice any of the notorious oil spots that plagued the D600.

                                All in all, a great camera and I'm very glad I took the FX plunge.

                                  Comments about Nikon D610 DSLR Camera with 24-85mm Lens:

                                  Great for everyday photos, as well as the hard to capture scenes while on your travels! Perfect for a first Pro DSLR! Many great functions easily accessible. Wide angle lens captures perfect scenes!
