Nikon D610 Review

With the Nikon D610, Nikon has introduced a new generation of impressive, powerful and remarkable hardware, in the shape of its latest 24 megapixels Full-frame CMOS sensor with stellar sharpness. Without a doubt, the camera is invigorated engineered to offer the remarkable balance of photos colorful quality, performance and operability that only an excellent full-frame camera can provide. One of the most significant upgrades and reasons to move up to the Nikon D610 from previous-generation models is the new autofocus system with a whopping 39 focus detection points. This is an essential addition to the Nikon D610 stable 6.0 fps continuous shooting via the use of Speed Priority Continuous mode, which is very useful for sports. If you are shooting a basketball game at night, or need to avoid blur while bouncing around on a subway car, then ISO 6,400 is must have. Naturally, the improved camera itself feels like a top-shelf imaging device, with an innovative, elegant and consistent design and solid dials. The easy to use dials are laid-out, with the buttons being of a decent size and comfortable to locate by fingers when you’re holding the grip. In hand, the camera feels really great and surprisingly never hurt my wrist at all carrying it all day long. Nikon D610 has a Nikon F lens mount, and currently, there are 286 native lenses available for this mount. Digital Camera World wrote a great Mid-size SLR that's well-suited to a lot of different users and experience levels. Overall, the image taking device handles very nicely for such a and powerful camera. After using the Nikon D610 for a few months in many photography places, I can naturally say that it is one of the most capable and versatile cameras on the market.
