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 color 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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

D610 4.3 5 29 29
Great camera for Semi-pro photographer I recently photographed a friend's wedding with this camera and got great results. The ability to make the shutter very quiet and in low light meant being able to get shots without the individuals knowing or without interrupting the ceremony. Also used my D90 during the reception, but the audible click frequently made people look. My usual photos are landscapes, lighthouses, covered bridges so the full frame over the D90's DX sensor is also wonderful. July 17, 2014
A Possible Reason for a Few Reviewers Poor Image Quality with D610 First, let me say that I mean no disrespect to the few people who left negative reviews about the D610. My purpose in posting is to suggest a reason as to why you may be getting poor image quality. Is it possible that when you get poor image quality out of the D610 that you're shooting shooting wide open on your primes? I recently bought the AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 because I shoot a lot of video interviews and I was tired of my entire scenes being in total, precise focus. Naturally, when I got the 85/1.8 I lighted my interviews in such a way as to be able to crank that beautiful lens all the way open and throw my background out of focus. And, it worked. However, in my excitement, I forgot one of the first things I was taught in my photography classes in college. Yes, opening up to 1.8 will give you a beautiful, fuzzy background but it also leaves you with an incredibly shallow depth of field. I've come to learn that when you shoot a video interview wide open, you better make sure your subject stays perfectly still in his chair--an absolute impossability unless you use restraints. The first 3 interviews I shot with my D610 and the 85mm 1.8 go in and out of focus throughout the session. At 1.8, all a subject has to do is lean forward slightly and some part of his face is going to go soft. I've since learned to stop down a little and back off slightly from my interview subjects (I like to get really close when I do an interview). I'm still getting a lovely, out of focus background and my subjects are sharp as a tack. I'm sure you guys know all of this and I'm certainly not trying to insult you're photographic expertise but I thought I throw out my 2 cents. I've always thought that auto focus on a Nikon (I still have an old D80 that I love) was the hardest thing to master. It latterly took me years of practice to begin to master the AF on the D80 and I had to start all over again with the D610. But, through trial and error and a lot of unusable interview footage, I'm finally getting back in the groove. On an unrelated note, I also have a D600. No signs of the dreaded spots yet but I thought i read on this forum that Nikon is replacing the shutter or whatever it is causing the spots for free now. Is this true? July 17, 2014
This is a really good camera for the price I've been used to shooting on a D800 for a couple of years now for work, and I wanted to upgrade my personal camera body. When looking at the D610, it offered almost all the features of the D800 for a more attractive price, so I decided to buy it. I have not been disappointed. While the 36MP of the D800 is phenomenal, the 24MP of the D610 is still more than adequate - in fact, it's outstanding. The images I'm getting are sharp, the dynamic range is excellent, and it has pretty much all the features I want. My only (minor) complaints are that I wish the AF points were spread over a wider area of the viewfinder, and that the auto-bracketing settings had options to include more than 3 frames. But there has to be some sacrifice for a lower price. I'm also finding that adjusting the focusing modes takes a little getting used to, but I'm sure with practice that will become more intuitive. This camera feels good in my hands, and having been a Nikon shooter for a long time, I find the controls and buttons comfortable to work with. The low light performance is excellent even up to ISO 5000. It starts to get a bit noisy at 6400 and above, but that's to be expected. This is the perfect camera for those who don't want to spend over $2,000 on a camera body and still get a great performer. June 5, 2014
Incredible Camera Bought this camera after owning several other Nikon DX models over the years. I will have to say I am incredibly happy with the images it captures over the DX format. Glass glass glass, ANY camera will make cruddy images if you have cheap lenses. Put a decent f2.8 or faster and watch the magic. This is the BEST bang for your buck in the FX line up next to the D800. The DX Auto Crop feature is great for using DX based lenses on the fly. This camera is tough too, my tripod got knocked over and the camera went 5.5 feet straight to the cement. Aside a couple nicks, the camera works perfectly. It feels solid and is not too small for my 6"3 200lb frame. ISO both low and hi are amazing. Zero oil spot issues that many say the D600 had/has. 6fps in RAW is glorious. Don't want to spend $3000 - $7000 on FX format? Get this one. May 8, 2014
Best camera I have owned in many years. Right out of the box this camera was superb and keeps getting better. I love the high iso functionality and lack of noise. It's a little heavier than my d7000, but it packs a lot more punch. I shoot a lot in raw and it handles the raw images quite well. This is my first full frame camera since my last film camera and I am impressed. I publish a small institutional magazine, and my photos were generally quite good. The d7000 was great for that. Now I am hoping to ramp it up to a whole new level. I bought my first Nikon in 1971 at the PX in Vietnam. It was one of the old flat top Photomics, and rugged as could be. I once dropped it out of a hovering helicopter, only damage was some skinned paint. April 22, 2014

Answer: 
The D610 was designed to shoot three shots when using exposure bracketing. The camera does have capabilities to achieve exposure compensations more than 5 EV.
