Our take on the Nikon D610 (no lens included) by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
It's got the look
Is there anything that can rival that arresting full-frame look? The Nikon D610 gives you the lush dimension of full-frame imagery along with impressive manual control of almost every parameter that's important to the serious photographer. And with 6 frames per second continuous shooting plus a discreet and convenient quiet burst-shooting mode that operates at 3 frames per second, the D610 offers new advantages that enthusiasts and professionals will appreciate.
And the envelope goes to...
Let's start with an exciting featurefor video shooters. Building on the success of its predecessor (the D600) Nikon again offers uncompressed HDMI output on the D610. This gives you the ability to route a pristine broadcast-quality signal to an external recording device or to a high-end critical evaluation monitor. Add the on-board headphone output, audio metering, and an external microphone input jack, and you're well on the way to directing your next film festival short.
The Nikon D610 full-frame DSLR features a dual memory card bay.
Details we can appreciate
At 24.3-megapixels, you'll have plenty of definition for even your most demanding subjects. The D610 has twin SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card bays, so you'll be able to keep on shooting with media that's easy to find. And with the high-resolution, 3.2-inch LCD display, you'll be able to compose those shots with ease, especially with the incorporated electronic level keeping everything well-aligned.
Making the most of the things you have
You'll have more "keepers" as well, because the 39-area autofocus system will lock you in sync with your moving subject, even in low light. The automatic white balance system has been tweaked to deliver even better skin tones in challenging light. And while this camera is optimized for full-frame Nikkor lenses, if you've had an APS-C sensor camera in the past, this camera is compatible with Nikon's DX format lenses as well — using a special crop mode to keep your investment useful. It also has an in-body autofocus motor, so it can use older, non-AF-S lenses.
It's an airwave traveler
One of the exciting options available for this model is Wi-Fi® camera control and mobile sharing, made possible by the optional WU-1b wireless mobile adapter. Apps are available for your Android™ or Apple® smartphone or tablet. You can share your photos with any compatible Wi-Fi device. Essentially, this allows you to control your camera's shutter from a distance while you view what the camera is seeing, and share those files later. Not only is it awfully handy when you want to be in the picture, it's a big time saver when you need to get your files in a safe place for storage.

Awesome camera, amazed at all the things that it can do, but the printing out of the images is crazy. I can print 50x36" images, which is awesome. I am waiting now for some NM sunrises and sunsets that we get and will turn into murals on my wall. Love the camera just great.

Overview: The D610 is Nikon's new full-frame high resolution DSLR, but in a slightly smaller package than the D800 or D4. The camera has the Nikon F bayonet mount, and is compatible with Nikon AF NIKKOR lenses, including Type G and D lenses, as well as DX lenses. No lenses are included with this "body only" kit.
Image Sensor: The D610 is equipped with the Nikon FX-format, 35.9 x 24.0mm CMOS image sensor with 24.7 million total pixels and 24.3 million effective pixels. The Nikon FX format enables photographers to take advantage of the familiar perspective characteristics of 35mm film photography. You can choose to shoot in the FX format, or switch to DX format when using DX lenses.
EXPEED 3 Image Processing: Nikon's EXPEED 3 technology provides superb image fidelity and reduced noise, even at high ISOs. EXPEED 3 can also handle data-intensive tasks, like 6 fps continuous shooting or broadcast-quality Full HD video recording, with ease.
Dual Media Slots: The D610 has dual slots that can accommodate SD, SDHC, and SDXC Memory cards, including UHS-1 cards for faster data transfer. Class 6 or higher write speeds are recommended for movie recording. No memory card is supplied with the camera. When two cards are used, you can choose the role played by the card in slot 2:
- Overflow: Card in Slot 2 is used only when the card in Slot 1 is full.
- Backup: Each picture is recorded onto cards in both slots simultaneously.
- RAW/JPEG: NEF/RAW images are recorded only to the card in Slot 1 while JPEG images are recorded only to the card in Slot 2.
Memory Buffer: The camera is equipped with a memory buffer for temporary storage, allowing shooting to continue while photographs are being saved to the memory card. Up to 100 photographs can be taken in succession.
LCD Monitor: The Nikon D610 features 3.2-inch, 921,000-dot (VGA), color TFT LCD monitor with a 170° wide viewing angle and 100% frame coverage. The monitor has adjustable brightness control using an ambient brightness sensor. The D610 features Live View that lets you use the monitor in place of the camera's viewfinder to confirm your subject and composition while shooting.
Optical Viewfinder: In addition to the LCD monitor, the D610 has an eye-level pentaprism single-lens reflex viewfinder with approximately 100% frame coverage in FX format, and 97% in DX format. It has a diopter adjustment knob so you can set the viewfinder to your personal eyesight. The viewfinder offers approximately 0.7x magnification. The viewfinder uses a Type-B BriteView Clear Matte Mark VIII screen with superimposed AF brackets and on-demand grid lines for clear and accurate focusing of your subject. The camera comes with the DK-5 eyepiece cover to prevent light from entering the viewfinder when shooting self portraits on a tripod.
Image Area/Auto DX Crop: You can choose the camera's angle of view (image area) in the menu: FX (36 x 24) or DX (24 x 16). The Auto DX Crop feature automatically crops pictures to the DX angle of view when a DX format lens is attached. If another lens is attached, the selected angle of view will be used. The Auto DX Crop feature can be turned off, if desired.
Still Image Size/Quality: The D610 records still images in JPEG and NEF* (RAW) formats. It can also record in both NEF (RAW) + JPEG formats simultaneously. JPEG images can set to fine (1:4 compression), normal (1:8), or basic (1:16) image quality. Depending upon the selected format (image area), you can choose from the following image sizes:
|Format (Image Area)||Large||Medium||Small|
|FX (36 x 24)||6016 x 4016||4512 x 3008||3008 x 2008|

39-Point Autofocus System: The D610 is equipped with the Nikon Multi-CAM 4800 autofocus sensor module with 39 focus points, including 9 cross-type sensors. The center 33 points are available at apertures slower than f/5.6 and faster than f/8 while the center 7 focus points are available at f/8.
AF-Area Modes: The D610 offers a choice of four focus area modes that together cover a wide area of the frame. The AF-area mode determines how the focus area is selected and what happens if the subject moves out of the selected focus area while the camera is still focusing. You can choose one of the following AF-area modes:
- Single-Point AF: The camera will focus on the subject in the selected focus point only.
- Dynamic Area AF: The camera offers a choice of three different size areas to match the movement of the subject, using groups of 9, 21 or all 39 focus points.
- 3D-Tracking: In AF-A and AF-C focus modes, the camera will track subjects that leave the selected focus point and select new focus points as required.
- Auto Area AF: The camera automatically detects subject and selects focus point. If a face is detected, the camera will give priority to the portrait subject.
Focus Modes: You can choose from the following focus modes:
- Single-servo Autofocus (AF-S): camera focuses automatically when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The focus remains locked while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. The picture will only be taken when the in-focus indicator is displayed. Recommended for stationary subjects.
- Continuous-servo Autofocus (AF-C): camera focuses continuously while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. Photographs can be taken whether or not the camera is in focus. Recommended for moving subjects.
- Auto-servo Autofocus (AF-A): camera automatically selects single servo autofocus if staionary, continuous servo autofocus if subject is moving.
- Manual (MF): focus must be adjusted manually using the lens focusing ring
Predictive Focus Tracking: In continuous-servo AF, the camera will initiate predictive focus tracking if the subject moves toward or away from the camera while the shutter-release button is pressed halfway or the AF-ON button is pressed. This allows the camera to track focus while attempting to predict where the subject will be when the shutter is released.
Focus Lock: Focus Lock can be used to change the composition after focusing, making it possible to focus on a subject that will not be in a focus area in the final composition.
Electronic Range Finder: If the connected lens has a maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster, the camera's Electronic Range Finder can be used to confirm whether or not your subject in the selected focus point is in focus (the focus point can be selected from any of the 39 focus points).
AF Assist Illuminator: The built-in AF assist illuminator enables the camera to focus even when the subject is poorly lit. The illuminator has a range of approximately 1'-8" to 9'-10".
Release Modes: The release mode determines how the camera takes photographs. You can choose from the following shooting modes:
- Single Frame: camera takes one photograph each time the shutter-release button is pressed
- Continuous Low Speed: while shutter-release button is held down, the camera records at 1-5 frames per second.
- Continuous High Speed: while the shutter-release button is held down, the camera records up to 6 frames per second.
- Quiet Shutter-Release: during single frame shooting, noise is reduced by disabling the beeps and minimizing the sound produced when the mirror drops back into place.
- Quiet Continuous Shutter-Release: while the shutter release button is held down, the camera records up to 3 frames per second with reduced camera noise.
- Self-Timer: use self-timer for self-portraits or to reduce blurring caused by camera shake; you can set the self-timer to 2, 5, 10 or 20 seconds
- Remote Control: shutter is controlled using the shutter-release button on the optional ML-L3 remote control
- Mirror Up: choose this mode to minimize camera shake in telephoto or close-up photography or in other situations in which the slightest camera movement can result in blurred photographs
Interval Timer Photography: The D610 is equipped to take photographs automatically at preset intervals. Shooting will begin about 3 seconds after the interval is set or you can set a start time. You can select the number of intervals (up to 999), and the number of shots taken per interval (up to 9).
Exposure Modes: The Exposure Modes determine how the camera sets shutter speed and aperture when adjusting exposure. You can choose from the following Exposure Modes.
- Programmed Auto (P): camera sets shutter speed and aperture for optimal exposure according to a built-in program; recommended for snapshots and other situations in which there is little time to adjust camera settings
- Shutter-Priority Auto (S): user chooses shutter speed while camera sets aperture for best results; use to freeze or blur motion. The shutter speed can be set from 30 to 1/4000 seconds.
- Aperture-Priority Auto (A): user chooses aperture while camera sets shutter speed for best results; use to blur background for portraits or bring both foreground and background into focus for landscape shots
- Manual (M): user controls both shutter speed and aperture for complete control over exposure
User Settings: The Mode Dial has two positions, U1 and U2, for assigning frequently-used settings. Settings can be saved in the following: flexible program (mode P), shutter speed (modes S and M), aperture (modes A and M), exposure and flash compensation, flash mode, focus point, metering, autofocus and AF-area modes, bracketing, and settings in the shooting and custom settings menus.
Scene Modes: When the Mode Dial is set to "Scene", you can choose a scene mode that automatically optimizes settings to suit the selected scene. You can choose from: Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up, Night Portrait, Night Landscape, Party/Indoor, Beach/Snow, Sunset, Dusk/Dawn, Pet Portrait, Candlelight, Blossom, Autumn Colors, Food, Silhouette, High Key, and Low Key.
Long Time-Exposures: When Bulb shooting is selected, the shutter will remain open while the shutter-release button is held down. Bulb shooting is used for long time-exposure photographs of moving lights, the stars, night scenery, or fireworks. An optional tripod and optional remote cord (MC-DC2) are recommended to prevent blur.
Exposure Compensation: You can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure from -5.0 to +5.0 EV in steps of 1/3 EV or 1/2 EV in P, S, A, and M shooting modes.
Metering: The D610 utilizes through-the-lens (TTL) metering using the camera's 2,016-pixel RGB sensor. You can choose one of the following metering methods:
- 3D Color Matrix II: If using a type G, D, or E lens, you can utilize 3D Color Matrix Metering II (or Color Matrix Metering II with other CPU lenses). The camera meters a wide area of the frame and sets exposure according to distribution of brightness, color, distance, and composition for natural results
- Center-weighted: The camera meters the entire frame but assigns greatest weight (75%) to the area in the center of the frame. The diameter of the circle can be set to 8, 15, or 20mm, or weighting can be based on the average of the entire frame. (Non-CPU lenses use a 12mm circle or average of entire frame.)
- Spot: The camera meters inside a 4mm diameter circle (approximately 1.5% of frame). The circle is centered on the selected focus area, making it possible to meter off-center subjects.
Multiple Exposure: This feature records a series of two or three exposures in a single photograph. Multiple exposures can be recorded at any image quality setting, and produce results with colors noticeably better than photographs combined in an imaging application because they make use of RAW data from the camera image sensor.
White Balance: White balance ensures that colors are unaffected by the color of the light source. You can choose one of the following white balance options:
- Auto: Choose from Auto, Normal, or Keep Warm Lighting Colors
- Fluorescent: Choose from Sodium-Vapor lamps, Warm-White Fluorescent, White Fluorescent, Cool-White Fluorescent, Day White Fluorescent, Daylight Fluorescent, and High-temperature Mercury Vapor
- Direct Sunlight
- Color Temperature: Choose a color temperature from a list of values (2500K-10000K)
- Preset Manual: manually set the white balance using the subject, light source, or existing photograph in the memory card as reference
Bracketing (P, S, A, & M modes): Bracketing automatically varies exposure, flash level, Active D-Lighting (ADL), or white balance slightly with each shot, "bracketing" the current value. You can set the increment used and the number of shots. Bracketing can be combined with continuous shooting or the self timer modes.
ISO Sensitivity: ISO Sensitivity is the digital equivalent of film speed. You can set the ISO Sensitivity to Auto or Manual. You can manually select settings of ISO 100 to ISO 6400 in steps of 1/3 EV or 1/2 EV. For special occasions, expanded settings of Lo 0.3 (equivalent to ISO 80), Lo 0.7 (64), Lo 1 (50), Hi 0.3 (8000), Hi 0.7 (10000), Hi 1 (12800), and Hi 2 (25600) are available.
Preset Picture Controls: The camera offers six preset Nikon Picture Controls. You can choose a Picture Control according to the subject or type of scene:
- Standard: standard processing for balanced results; recommended for most situations
- Neutral: minimal processing for natural results; recommended for photographs that will later be extensively processed or retouched
- Vivid: pictures are enhanced for a vivid, photo-print effect; recommended for photos that emphasize primary colors
- Monochrome: takes monochrome photographs
- Portrait: process portrait for skin with natural texture and a rounded feel
- Landscape: produces vibrant landscapes and cityscapes
Picture Control Settings: The Preset Picture Controls listed above can be modified to suit a particular scene or your creative content. The following manual adjustments can be made:
- Quick Adjust: allows you to reduce or exaggerate the effect of the selected Picture Control Preset from -2 to +2
- Sharpening: controls the sharpness of outlines from 0 to 9; you can also select Auto which adjust the sharpness automatically according to the scene
- Contrast: adjust contrast automatically according to the type of scene or chose from values between -3 to +3 to increase or decrease the contrast of your subject
- Brightness: reduce or enhanced brightness level from -1 to +1; this does not affect exposure
- Saturation (for non-monochrome): automatically adjust saturation according to the type of scene or choose from values between -3 to +3 to lower or increase your subject's saturation
- Hue (for non-monochrome): adjust your subject's hue from -3 to +3 to change the level of Hue
- Filter Effects (for monochrome): simulate the effect of color filters on monochrome photographs from yellow, orange, red, green or off
- Toning (for monochrome): choose the tint used in monochrome photographs from B&W, Sepia, Cyanotype, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue Green, Blue, Purple Blue, or Red Purple.
Color Space: The color space determines the gamut of colors available for color reproduction. You can select either sRGB for photos that will be printed or used "as is" with no further modification, or Adobe RGB for images that will be extensively processed or retouched after leaving the camera.
Active D-Lighting: Active D-Lighting preserves details in highlights and shadows, creating photographs with natural contrast. Active D-Lighting offers the following application strength levels: Auto, Low, Normal, High, Extra High and Off.
Built-In Speedlight: The D610 has a pop-up flash that provides coverage for the angle of view of a 24mm lens in FX format, or 16mm lens in DX format. The available flash modes vary with the shooting mode. The following flash modes are supported:
- Auto Flash: When lighting is poor or subject is backlit, the flash pops up automatically when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, and fires as required.
- Red-Eye Reduction: The red-eye reduction lamp lights for approximately one second before the flash fires to reduce the red-eye effect.
- Slow Sync: Flash is combined with shutter speeds as slow as 30 seconds to capture both subject and background at night or under dim light. (Tripod recommended)
- Rear-Curtain Sync: The flash fires just before the shutter closes, creating effect of stream of light following moving subjects. In programmed auto and aperture-priority auto, slow rear-curtain sync is used to capture both subject and background. (Tripod recommended)
Flash Compensation: Flash compensation is used to alter flash output from -3 EV to +1EV in increments of 1/3 EV to change the brightness of the main subject relative to the background. Flash output can be increased to make the main subject appear brighter or reduced to prevent unwanted highlights or reflections.
FV Lock: This feature is used to lock the flash output, allowing photographs to be recomposed without changing the flash level and ensuring that the flash output is appropriate to the subject even when the subject is not positioned in the center of the frame. The Flash output is adjusted automatically for any changes in ISO sensitivity and aperture.
Speedlights: The Nikon D610 supports the Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS), and can be used with CLS-compatible flash units. Optional flash units, such as the SB-300, SB-400, SB-700, and SB-910, can be attached directly to the camera accessory shoe.
WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter: The WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter supports two-way communication between the camera and smart devices running the Wireless Mobile Adapter Utility.
