Featuring the Nikon's F-mount, the D610 works with over 80 available Nikkor lenses. 

Capturing the images for the D610 is their 24.3-Megapixel FX-format, full-frame CMOS imaging sensor. With a wide dynamic range and low noise in low-light situations, the sensor allows you to capture the best possible images in all situations. Assisting with the noise reduction, performance, and controlling all of the camera's special features is the EXPEED 3 image processor. It is powerful enough to control all of the aspects of auto shooting while also allowing for burst shooting up to 6fps and full 1080p HD video recording.

The D610's AF system is made up of 9 cross-type sensors and 39 focus points to assure the fastest and most accurate autofocus in every possible shooting condition. Seven of the nine senors work all the way to f/8, allowing the D610's amazing AF system to work well with adapters as well.

Included with our sample unit was the Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens. This zoom lens falls into the standard category for a kit lens, with a similar range to an 18-55mm lens with an APS-C sized sensor camera. One thing on this lens that you do not see as often is a high-quality optical image stabilization in Nikon's VR system.

Nikon has included a pop-up flash unit on the D610, which can be very handy in certain situations; including fill light on a bright day or when you do not want to carry an external unit. It also acts a commander to control advanced external setups within the Nikon iTTL system.

The D610 has two options for shooting, the first being the 3.2-inch, 921k dot LCD screen. This screen allows for Live View shooting with continuous AF for both single shot and HD video capture. It is also a fantastic way to view your images in the field when you do not have a proper monitor or computer handy.

For most photographers that opt for the D610, they will be using the optical viewfinder to compose their images. This is a single-lens reflect eye-level pentaprism viewfinder that shows approx. 100% coverage of the image frame, AF-point illumination, and exposure settings along the bottom.

The hotshoe on top of the camera allows for the total control of any of the Nikon external Speedlite flash units. This collection features every lighting need you can think of, including multiple options for close-up photography and constant lights for video recording. The hotshoe also offers the ability to power other accessories such as an external microphone for enhanced audio recording.
