The top right of the camera features the Sub-Command dial on the front of the grip, Shutter release coupled with the power switch, movie recording button, exposure compensation and metering buttons and the Digital Control Panel. The control panel allows you to see all of the camera's core exposure settings and along with other important information (battery life, etc.).

On top of the left side of the camera is the mode dial. Here you can quickly change the camera's shooting mode from any of the manual and automatic modes to one of the two user defined modes that you can set for your favorite places or scenarios. The button on top keeps the dial locked in place until pressed, stopping you from accidentally changing your shooting mode. Underneath the mode dial is the shutter control dial, featuring all of your continuous, remote and self-timer settings. The button to the bottom left of the dial releases it to allow you to make changes.

Controls Back Left: At the top you have the playback and delete buttons. Under those you will find the Menu, Picture Control/Retouch, Help/Protect/WB, Image quality and size/Zoom in, ISO sensitivity/Zoom out/Thumbnail/2-button reset buttons. These buttons allow quick access to these settings that would otherwise have to come from searching the camera's menu system.

Controls Back Right: At the top you have the Focus and Exposure Lock button and the main Command Dial. Moving down you have the 8-way multi-selector used for navigating the menus, editing and the control of various other shooting and playback operations. On the inside is the OK button for making your setting selections. Coupled around it is the Focus Selection Lock. The next button down is the Live View button and switch for still/video mode. At the bottom is the INFO button that allows the camera to show the shooting info on the LCD screen.

Here you can see the focus control switch at the bottom on the camera body, allowing you to change from auto to manual almost instantly. Above it you will also see the lens release, BRK button and flash release. On the lens are the controls for Focus (Manual/Auto Or full Manual) and VR (Vibration reduction, On or Off).

On the left side of the camera you will find all of its I/O ports. At the top are the MIC in and headphone output jacks. The next door down features the USB and HDMI ports for connecting the camera to a computer, printer or HDTV. At the very bottom is the accessory terminal that is used with GPS, WiFi and remote accessories.

Your recorded images and videos are stored on SD/SDHC/SDXC type media. The D610 offers dual card slots that support even the fastest UHS-1 media cards that allow the full power of the camera to come to life. The camera is shown here with a SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-1 SDHC card and a Sony 32GB UHS-1 SDHC card that was used to test the camera.

Powering the D610 is a 7.0V, 1900mAh rechargeable Li-Ion battery. This battery is capable of supplying up to 900 shots on a single charge. Shooting in Live View for still and video will greatly reduce this number. Nikon offers a battery grip that doubles the number of images that you can capture without worrying about your battery. Also shown above is the included quick charger that allows you to keep several batteries charged and ready to go at all times.

Although Nikon is not building WiFi into their camera's, the optional WU-1b wireless adapter gives you everything that WiFi can offer when you need it. This allows you to upload and share your images almost instantly, as well as view them on a smartphone or tablet. Even remote control of the camera is possible via a smartphone or tablet combined with Nikon's free wireless mobile adapter utility app.
