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 colour 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

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 centre offer superior accuracy even when light and contrast are scarce. Seven centre 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 intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Colour Matrix Metering II. Its 2,016 pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and the scene colours, 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 (sold separately) 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.

The Nikon D610 Excellent The Nikon D610 Excellent I bought the camera in July of 2014 and love it, it so good fast and built well. I can only say I really love my D610 it brings me back to the good old days of 35 mm film my F801s, FE, FM2, FA and N2020 to name some of my Cameras. Also I had to say a D70s and a D7000. My D7000 I traded it in for something else. I want to by another D610 or may look at the D750 but to say I like the BM-14 LCD Cover for the D610 and maybe there is no Cover for the D750 so I will see what I buy. I like to have less moving parts like the LCD on my D610 but have to think and talk to the store to make up my mind. I am looking to have two (2) FX cameras to use. I am also thinking of the D800 – D810 for a Second or main Body Camera. To say I hope the next camera that replaces the D610 has a LCD cover I find it to be a good add on to protect the LCD. I have my camera bouncing on my chest and so on. I would recommend to any one the D610. September 13, 2014
Awesome product. This is one of the best SLRs ever made. Strong, reliable, accurate and with incredible image quality. July 3, 2014
Great Camera Was quite surprised with it's performance. Works very well in low light, creating crisp sharp images. The body is light weight and well balanced. With controls that you can still use in AUTO mode, or program your own settings. I have used the D800, and in comparing them. I have discovered unless you are a professional photographer and need the very best. The D610 will suit all of your needs, and more. I truly enjoy working with it. November 22, 2013
This is a game changer I have used Nikons since 1984 when I bought my first FG-20. That camera lasted me until 2000 and it had been dragged all over the world. After that I acquired an N90 (Film) right when digital cameras were coming out but they were not what they are now. I used the N90 for a 3-4 years and I loved it but film was becoming harder to find and developing was a pain. I fell out of photography and in 2013 I bought a D5100 and liked it. I didn't do the research and should have gotten the D7000, which I eventually upgraded to a year later. This this upgrade was a pure joy. Controls were familiar and laid out well. Felt like an N90. Now I am often shooting inside at close proximity in lower light conditions and the cropped frame of the D7000 was fair in low light, but noise was visible at higher ISO's, also I wanted to use my older glass prime lenses. Which I could do, but they were cropped and I wasn't getting full focal lengths. So I upgraded again to the D610 and I was amazed. When inside in small areas I love my 50mm f/1.4 and with the D610 it is fun. I did a test over various ISO's on this lens and from 800 - 3200 it is very close and at 6400 the noise is still minimal when compared to the D7000. As much as I loved my D7000 and it is a perfect camera, the D610 is pushing me to go further. From what I have read the new D7100 and 610 are almost identical except the former is DX and the later is FX. Neither is a wrong choice, but image quality out of the D610 is better. If you have loved photography for a while and have used any type of SLR especially film, the D610 is the proper choice. If you are an enthusiast/hobbyist and do not want to spend the extra money get the D7100 and crop factor doesn't bother you. If just starting out, a D5300 is an excellent choice and it won't kill your budget and you can afford to upgrade if you get into photography. January 3, 2015
Don't mind the negitive reviews It's time to clear up some questions and concerns brought up by previous reviews. Make no mistake, the Nikon D610 is a professional level camera that can be picked up by hobbyists, working professionals and beginners alike. At the time of writing this review (12/29/2014) the D610 has a 4 star rating which is a disappointment. This camera deserves 5 stars but due to angry D600 users and people misunderstanding what a camera body's limits and capabilities are, the D610 suffers. Does the camera have focusing issues? No! Some people have complained about the D610 not focusing correctly which is a sure sign of user error. The camera body's job is to capture light on the sensor and translate that light into an image. If you're having focusing issues it is most likely caused by a few things. First: User error is a common cause of blurry images. This should be no surprise to most of us but even experienced photographers miss focus. If you're using a lens with a wide aperture (f/1.8) You're area of sharp focus will be drastically decreased, sometimes your slice of focus will only be a few Millimeters wide so if you wobble or your subject moves your focus will be off. Second: User error. Let's reiterate this to make it clear. If you're having focusing issues it is imperative that you first look at the mistakes you might be making before you blame the camera. Third: What is your shutter speed? too slow and any slight movement will cause your image to be out of focus. Try to stay above 1/60th for still subjects and significantly faster for moving subjects. Third: Focus calibration. When you've considered and eliminated user error it is possible that you need to calibrate your lens for the camera's focusing system. You can do this by going to the setup menu > AF Fine Tune and using a SpyderLenscal or something like it to fine tune your focus. You have to calibrate each individual lens. Does the sensor collect dust? yes! Every camera sensor will collect some dust over time but that is completely normal and it's not a mechanical issue like the D600. The problem is fixed and you shouldn't panic if you have some dust after normal use. The Nikon D610 is an amazing camera and I urge you to get one if you're looking for a high caliber camera. Use the camera for a while, come back and leave a review so we can bump the rating up to a level this camera deserves. December 29, 2014
