Features


AF-S NIKKOR 28–300mm f/3.5–5.6G ED VR (Vibration Reduction) lens

Carry one lens that incorporates a wide focal length range. Vibration reduction technology reduces the effects of camera shake, minimizes blur and maintains focus.

24.3-megapixel FX format CMOS sensor delivers incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements

The full-frame (same size as the 35mm-film format) sensor produces great edge-to-edge clarity with incredible detail and sharpness.

ISO 100–6,400 (expandable to 25,600)

Enjoy crisp, clean images over a broad spectrum of lighting conditions, even capturing great shots just before dawn and at dusk, when available light is often beautiful but scarce.

Capture fast-action shots at up to 6 fps (frames per second)

From joyous facial expressions to fast-paced sports action, burst mode ensures you get the shot even if it only lasts a fraction of a second.

3.2" TFT-LCD monitor auto adjusts brightness for sharp vivid color in any light

The ambient brightness sensor and automatic brightness control make it easy to frame and review shots.

Capture spectacular movies in Full 1080p HD

Shoot 1080p HD videos with selectable frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p.

EXPEED 3 image-processing engine delivers speed and performance

From shooting images and videos, to playback and data transfer, this processor handles even the most demanding tasks with ease.

Eye-level single-lens reflex viewfinder provides virtually true-to-life image representation

With approximately 97% horizontal and vertical frame coverage, you can compose the shot by seeing virtually the same shot the lens sees.

Focus exactly where you want it

Whether shooting stationary images, high-speed action or Full HD video, a 39-point high-density autofocus system with 3D tracking locks onto your subject to keep it in perfect focus.

Optional wireless mobile adapter lets you easily share photos

Transfer photos to your compatible cell phone, tablet or other Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Wireless mobile adapter sold separately.

Scene Recognition System delivers shots as clearly as you see them

It automatically analyzes your shot, comparing it to an onboard database of scenes to determine optimal auto exposure, flash exposure, white balance and autofocus settings.

Continuous quiet mode

Capture a sequence of shots without the noise associated with the raising and lowering of the DSLR's mirror.

Built-in pop-up flash offers new shooting possibilities

Provides balanced fill flash for extra depth and dimension. Integrates with Nikon's i-TTL system communicating exposure information with remote flashes.

Multiformat memory slots for storing or transferring data

Supports SD, SDHC and SDXC formats. Memory cards not included.

    Though it might be the entry model for Nikon for full-frame range. But my experience with the camera is simply great. You pretty much have all features as more expensive full frame models. You have a bright large view finder, excellent image quality. Well 51 point AF points not there but I personally don't need that other than sports photography. Even 39 point AF is enough for that. You have a great battery life but generally for long trips you may want to have another one. I have not tried video capability of this camera yet, since I use separate camera for the same. If you want to add something in the package is probably a memory card, couple of filters, definitely a prime lens. I would suggest 1.8 50MM prime will do great job for you. That's probably all you need. Overall, this is an excellent product and you do not want to be double minded to buy this, unless you have more money to spend and buy D800.

    Hi bought this camera to replace my aging Canon 1DS ii/iii cameras and all I can say is this camera performs great in all aspects of FX photography. The accompanying lens 28-300mm is a superb lens to go with this camera and while I plan to purchase more pro lenses, this will suffice for now. Great sharp pictures and very intuitive menus. You cannot go wrong. This also came with a bag, 32GB card and a battery grip. Simply awesome!!

    I'm upgrading from a Nikon D200 (DX# that I really like. So far, this D610 has been very impressive, but is set up differently than the D200 #with which I am familiar). So the 'ease of use' for me has a bit of a learning curve... I'm still running the D610 through the paces, but have been impressed so far.

    I ordered the nikon d610 thru a local bestbuy store. In the website, it states that the kit (sku: 2063106) will include free items such as the Gorillapod, uv lens filter, and etc. But when they ship the kit to you, it doesnt come with those free items. I am kind of dissappointed on how Bestbuy describes their product in one way and send you in another way.

    This camera offers an unbelievable amount of features. Quality of pictures and bokeh is awesome. The only cons I have found so far: 1. It is quite heavy 2. The light sensor isn't in a great spot and the light from the sensor will cast a shadow on the subject because it is compromised by the lens (doesn't affect picture though)

    I bought this camera for a professional shoot. Wasn't disappointed. Photos are terrific, even though I've only had time to master about a third of what it can do. So many options for fine tuning! But I plan to learn them all!

    Bought this Camera and 28-300mm lens package on sale at Best Buy. Amazon had a way higher price than Best Buy for the camera package! Couldn't be happier with the high quality, body sturdiness, and overall functionality of the D610 full frame camera.
