Nikon D610 review
Published On 17-June-2015
The Nikon D610 follows moderately quickly on from its predecessor, the Nikon D600, which is actually very good. In spite of the Nikon D600 being the most reasonable full-frame DSLR of all time on its unveiling, it has some faults, whereas the most manifest of which was that after a specific number of shutter actuations approximately 3000 shots, some consumers experienced the appearance of infrequent dust as well as oil spots in the upper left part of the frame of camera.
It was also stated that these spots were a result of an error along with the shutter mechanism of the camera and even though Nikon did issue a service notice, the D600 was dodged through those in the know. Even though, the Nikon D610 does provide numerous latest features, its role is more to the hit the smudged reputation of its predecessor. Let’s have a quick review of Nikon D610.
Generally there is not a major difference between Nikon D610 and D600; however this is not a bad thing because the Nikon D600 was an impressive top notch DSLR.
The main feature of the Nikon D610 remains its full frame CMOS sensor. The sensor of the camera provides a resolution of 24.3 Mega Pixel in FX format of Nikon, whereas it moreover supports Nikon’s 1.5 x DX crop modes; and that’s why it provides native support to DX lenses of Nikon.
The camera sensor come along with the Nikon’s EXPEED 3 image processing engine which promises few impressive speeds, and also facilitates a native ISO range of 100-6400, that can be easily extendable from ISO 50 to ISO 25,600.
The back side of the camera contains the retention of 3.2 inches of Nikon, 921k-dot LCD display screen which contains auto-adjustment technology to ensemble the brightness to that of the nearby situations.
In terms of performance of auto focus, the Nikon D610 contains the similar professional-level 39 point Auto Focus system that completes along with the 9 cross-type sensors and also improved performance in low light situations. The Auto Focus system moreover supports 3D focus tracking and all its credit goes to Scene Recognition facility of D610.
The main zone the Nikon D610 has remedied is the shutter system of this camera. Appreciations are for its illustrious issues accompanied by the D600’s shutter mechanism, the D610 currently contains a complete new unit that, whereas moreover expectantly more reliable as compared to the predecessor, and also comes along with some enhancements sin its performance.
For instance, the continuous shooting rate is presently at almost 6 frames per second from 5.5 frames per second, whereas a ‘Quiet Continuous’ mode of 3 frames per second presently arrives for discreet constant shooting. The D610 also appears to have some attention gave to the auto white balance system, along with Nikon claiming enhanced colour rendering in conditions struck through artificial sources.
There is a very little to distinguish the D610 from its ancestor. Another time, as along with the specification of the D610 being quite similar to the D600 not being actually a bad thing, the same is true of the design just as the D600 was both an appealing, eye catching as well as a functional camera.
Away from the alleged dust spot or the oil shutter mechanism matter, the D600 carried an impressive level of performance that was actually sure to please any advanced photographer.
One slight disappointment along with the performance of the camera is along with the Auto Focus speed in Live View mode. When the user is trying to tracking the moving subjects in Live View the Auto Focus speed actually in not up to scratch and on the whole it just surpasses when it comes to working along with the static subjects close-up.
Auto focus performance of the camera in the traditional sense is also quite impressive, accompanied by the 3D Tracking Auto Focus system of Nikon especially attracting the users.
As the consumer would expect from a Nikon DSLR supporting a full-frame sensor, the D610 provides some attractive impressive images. In spite of containing an AA filter, associated with the latest spate of DSLRs that have done away along with the technology, the 24 Mega Pixel sensor provides an impressive level of detail.
The Nikon D610 does not provide a large number of enhancements on the Nikon D600, while it does fix the reported shutter mechanism matter. Generally it is actually an impressive and advanced DSLR that offers the full-frame image quality and a high level of performance in an appealing and inviting package.
