The D610 is one of Nikon’s least costly full-frame DSLRs, and as such, is little more stripped down and rationalized than its peers. Besides this, it gives excellent image quality and some of the prime sensor scores that we have seen. While it has shortfalls in few areas, as in battery life, focus point and video frame rate, it’s quite good value and worth your consideration.
It’s excellent image quality is focused on full-frame sensor that gives high resolution images with precise colours and fine detail.
In some tests, D610 performed superbly well.
D610 is quite competent when it comes to recognizing subtleties in colour and reconstructing them in your pictures. If you are a portrait clicker, the D610 will make for error-free and appealing skin tones.
Dynamic range was similarly beautiful, though not quite the best at 14.4 Evs. We can assure you that your camera will capture minutes in shadows and highlights as well as or better than anything else on the market.
At last, the tests for low light performance were also quite good, easily besting the category average of 2320 ISO with a score of 2925 ISO. This means that if you are in low light, you will still be able to capture clear pictures with minimal grain. The best professional DSLRs in our review achieved slightly higher scores.
Shooting performance for the D610, while adequate for the most applications, was notably less effective than some of its more impactful competitors. It gives a substantially weaker battery life at 900 shots every charge, lowered focus points at just 39 and a slower maximum shutter-speed of 1/4000s. While these weaknesses may affect different degrees, they will certainly make a difference.
Its interface is standard for professional DSLRs with outstanding features or activities. It has a 3.2-inch display with a meekly below-average resolution, a built-in-flash and dual memory card slots that assist SD card only. Photographers seeking a matching camera with better features should consider the D750.
PROS / A good price gives professional image quality in reach for budget-aware shooters.
CONS / Battery life is not quite impressive.
The Nikon D610 offers the same professional picture quality that you would find in a camera several times its price. For that reason alone, it’s an amazing choice for those who need professional-quality pictures, but are not quite ready to waste out on the more expensive options out there. It lacks some performance and design features, but at a price of this, it’s difficult to criticise.
