I AM LIFE IN FULL FRAME
Get ready for a new level of photography. With the Nikon D610, you have arrived at the gateway to FX-format shooting. With a remarkably compact and lightweight body, FX-format 24.3 megapixel sensor, fast 6fps continuous shooting and instant photo sharing capabilities, the Nikon D610 allows you to shoot professional images with ease.
Superior image quality
The 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, EXPEED 3 image processor along with an ISO range of 100 to 6400 (expandable from 50 to 25,600) combine to deliver exceptional image quality.
Full frame coverage
With the D610, what you see is what you shoot, thanks to the glass prism optical viewfinder covering approx. 100% of the image area, so you can compose each shot exactly how you want.
Full HD video
Expand your creativity with the D610’s Full (1080p) HD video recording. The D610 offers two movie formats (FX and DX), Time-lapse photography, microphone and headphone inputs plus you can also review output live on external monitors and record uncompressed video via HDMI.
Want to share your pictures on the go?
WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter
By using the WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter, you can transmit images from the D610 to a Wi-Fi equipped smart device# such as a smartphone or tablet, and share your images to social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter.
You can also shoot through your mobile device using the Live view function## of the D610, together with the use of the WU-1b.
The WU-1b is available separately for purchase.
# Dedicated application is required. The application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store (free). Compatible OSs: Andoird 2.3 series (smartphone); Android 3.X series (tablet).
## Live view function is not compatible when shooting video remotely with the smart device.
FX format CMOS sensor
The Nikon D610’s innovative FX-format CMOS sensor, image-processing engine and lenses work together to deliver the exceptional quality you demand in your stills and videos. NIKKOR lenses help draw out the sensor’s full potential, achieving exquisite sharpness with minimized aberrations, all while rendering spectacular bokeh for a three-dimensional look that is more faithful to what your eyes see.
The D610 uses Nikon’s EXPEED 3, the same image-processing engine found in the D4 and D800 series, meaning it can swiftly manage the large data files that an FX-format sensor produces.
During image processing, Nikon’s original Picture Control technology makes it simple to tailor the individual look and feel of your stills and videos by fine-tuning their parameters using preset options. And with enhanced Auto White Balance accuracy for common shooting scenarios, the D610 reproduces colours as natural and precise as they look in reality.
The D610 boasts even faster continuous shooting than its predecessor, at up to approx. 6 fps* in both FX and DX formats.
* Based on CIPA Guidelines.
Qc shutter-release mode
The D610’s new Qc (quiet continuous) shutter-release mode reduces mirror noise while still offering up to 3 fps*, affording maximum discretion.
* Based on CIPA Guidelines.
7 focus points compatible with f/8
The D610’s AF system gives you absolute confidence when capturing moving subjects by using 39 strategically placed focus points, with 9 powerful cross-type sensors in the center to allow further accuracy even when light and contrast are low. Most impressively, you can still use 7 active AF points when the maximum effective aperture is as slow as f/8, with a telephoto lens attached to a 2x teleconverter – a great benefit for sports and wildlife shooters.
100% frame coverage
Bright and clear, the D610’s glass prism optical viewfinder covers approx. 100% of the image area, an invaluable asset for accurate framing. The approx. 0.7x* magnification – the same as the D4 and D800/D800E – means it’s easy to see all the visual elements in the viewfinder, while the optional grid lines display enhances composition for landscape and architecture photography.
* 50mm f/1.4 lens at infinity, -1.0 m-1.
Dual SD card slots
The D610’s dual SD card slots provide multiple options for recording and storing large files: you can write RAW and JPEG data to separate cards, copy from one card to another, and select a slot according to the remaining capacity during video shooting. The slots are UHS-I compatible, and can transfer data faster thanks to the camera’s EXPEED 3 image-processing engine.
Dependable body and shutter
You needn’t hesitate about taking the D610 with you into difficult situations. The camera’s rugged body utilizes a durable magnesium alloy for the top and rear frames, and its weather sealing gives it the same dust- and moisture-proof reliability as the D800 series. The shutter has been tested for 150,000 cycles with the shutter unit and driving mechanism actually loaded on the body, so you can shoot as long as your creativity demands.
Built-in flash to trigger remote Speedlights
The D610’s built-in flash makes Advanced Wireless Lighting with Nikon Speedlights even faster and simpler. Turn the flash to commander mode and you can wirelessly trigger your remote off-camera Speedlights (SB-700 and SB-910) with ease, producing creative and comprehensive lighting that’ll go wherever your imagination takes it.
Full HD D-Movie and time-lapse feature
The D610 can record 1080p Full HD video at 30p in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, with a choice of both FX- and DX-based movie formats, plus comprehensive audio controls including a dedicated stereo headphone jack. It enables you to watch simultaneous live view output on external monitors and record uncompressed video via HDMI. You can also create time-lapse photography through simple menu operations, with no need for elaborate calculations and editing.
