Nikon D610

Nikon announces the D610 full frame.


http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-d610/


Nikon D610 key features

24.3MP Full-frame CMOS sensor (10.5MP DX-format crop mode)
ISO 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 50-25,600 equivalent)
Maximum 6fps continuous shooting; new quiet continuous mode shoots at 3 fps
39-point AF system with 9 cross-type AF points
Refined auto white balance system
Wireless flash control
3.2in 921k-dot LCD screen
Dual memory card slots
1080p30 full HD video
Uncompressed video recording via HDMI


Let's hope it fixes those issues. I bet they were trying to beat Canon to punch and missed a few things with the D600.


I'm excited. Sorta lol My D90 is ready to be replaced. A few things are falling off. That's what I tell myself are the reasons I need to get a new body. lol

What exactly did Nikon miss with the D600?

I donīt know the specs off the top of my head. I know the lowest ISO is 100 on the D600, what else?

I was reading from dpreview and nikon rumors that the cause of the oil leakage was from the sensor. Some are saying that when they send their D600 back to Nikon, they repaired it. The internet somewhat blew it out of proportion because there are some D600 owners who haven't had the oil problem.

Other than that, Nothing. A lot of people are still happy with the D600. Lots a great images for the value. The specs of the D600 and D610 are almost identical. What you get new in the D610 (in bold) along with a newer sensor that hopefully fixes the problem with the oil leakage.

Im sure the 610 is a great camera but the Pentax k3 is more tempting to me.

I went from a D90 to a D300 and love it...but a more modern sensor would be nice and Id love to stick with Dx.

One of the reason I chose Nikon was that it felt good in my hands. The Pentax X3 looks like it could be the same size as most of the Entry level cams which cramp my hands big time. Battery life on the Pentax X3 could be a little better.

What it really boils down to is, do you want to spend that kind of money on a camera or maybe shoot with a camera that fits your needs. The last event I shot, I noticed I had to step backwards a lot. I was using a 24-70mm lens. Sure I could have chose the 17-55mm but I shot with that. 24mm on a DX camera is not wide enough for me.

Here is an interesting article

OK, well I havent noticed any issues with oil on mine, besides it will be covered if it comes up.

Very happy with my camera, and not exactly a huge difference with the 610, 0.5 frames per second increase huh? wow.... LOL

Bottom line is that there was a perceived problem, it was probably negligible and twenty years ago, everybody would have been happy shooting with their D600s- but with the internet, one disgruntled user bitches and moans on a forum frequented by enthusiasts, and everybody thinks there is a problem.

Guaranteed for every user that has complained, there are several thousand that a) have never looked at a photography forum, and b) are out happily shooting with their gear, rather than previewing images at 300% onscreen looking for problems.

On the bright side, it's a great opportunity to pick up a D600, slap the $200 35mm DX lens on it (which works surprisingly well, stopped down to about f/5.6 or so before you get any discernible vignetting) and have an ideal walkaround combo. Even more compact than my 5DII with the 40mm pancake, as I have to stick a 270EX on top also.

You're right. It just someone's comments. This whole D600 is somewhat similar to D70 mishap.. Nikon recovered from that. And it can only get better (I hope). lol


I noticed the D610 is in stock. Best Buy also has them in stock.

Here is a review from Lensrental.com

Same sensor on the D610 and dust. but that is typical.
