Weighing in at approximately 760 grams, the compact and lightweight D610 is an ideal choice for day-to-day photography. The camera is also extremely durable and is designed for a variety of shooting conditions, with various points of the body sealed for dust prevention and weather-resistant performance.
Photographers will appreciate the additional features on the D610, such as the optical viewfinder that provides 100% frame coverage for composing images. The large 3.2-inch 921K-dot LCD screen makes it easy to preview images or videos, as well as featuring an automatic brightness control that adapts seamlessly to changing lighting conditions. Users can sharpen and tweak the brightness and contrast of their images via a dedicated button for one-touch access to the Picture Control function. The Scene Recognition System utilizes a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and the 24.3-million pixel image sensor to accurately adjust focus, exposure and white balance. Photographers can also take advantage of the D610’s improved Auto White Balance Control System to produce true-to-life colours in photographs.
24.3-megapixel FX-format CMOS Sensor
Whether the desired result is a dark and moody photograph or an image with a stunning dynamic range, the D610’s FX format will be able to please even the most demanding of users. The 24.3-megapixel CMOS sensor on the D610 provides users with an extensive ISO range of 100 to 6400 (expandable from 50 to 25,600). This enables users to capture photographs in low light with true-to-life colours and minimal noise. The ISO range of 100 to 25,600 is also accessible when capturing HD videos under challenging lighting conditions.
EXPEED 3 image-processing engine
The D610 boasts high-speed processing power with its EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. On top of providing users with smooth operation and image processing, the camera is also capable of bursts of images of up to 6 frames per second in FX and DX-formats. To further enhance the speed and workflow for photographers, images and videos can be rapidly transferred to the dual SD card slots that are compatible with SDXC, UHS-1 as well as Eye-Fi cards.
The D610 offers a power-up time of just 0.13 seconds3 and a release time lag of approximately 0.052 seconds3. For capturing fast-moving objects, the D610 features an improved shutter release mode capable of continuous shooting at approximately 6 frames per second in both FX and DX-formats. The D610 is also equipped with an innovative Quiet Continuous (QC) shutter-release mode that allows for near-silent shooting at approximately 3 frames per second. When the QC mode is selected, the mirror movement sound is significantly reduced, allowing users to photograph subjects with minimal disruption. This unobtrusive mode is ideal for photographing nature and for use in quiet environments such as theatres.
