While shooting with the OVF, this screen can be turned on to show all of the camera's shooting information. This provides a little more information than the control panel, and is much easier to see in the field.

A set of the more common shooting settings can also be found here. These settings do not have direct access via a button on the camera body, but can be easily and quickly accessed here.

Just like you would find on a compact point-n-shoot, the D610 features a set of scene modes for popular and complicated shooting situations. This helps people with less photography experience use this camera with ease. 





nikon_d610_rec_program.JPG
Program mode in Live View (shown above) takes care of aperture and shutter settings for you, but allow you to handle the rest of the camera settings. Live view also allows the camera to operate like a point-n-shoot in the aspects of using the LCD to compose your images. The camera also uses a contrast detection AF, which is a little slower.

Manual mode gives you complete control over every aspect of the camera.

Video recording is also possible on the D610 by flipping Live View into video recording mode. The video shooting options are incredible for this camera, making it a must have for those working with both still images and video.
