Nikon D610 24.3 MP CMOS FX-Format Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)

  • I was looking at the D750 and really like that camera, but value for the money the D610 seemed to good to pass up. I think when Nikon had issues with the oil spotting on the shutter on the D600 it made people a bit gun shy on the series. To the best of my research they solved the issue with the D610 and even put a commitment to stand by the D600 that had the issue. This came with a very low shutter count and would be very hard to distinguish from a brand new camera. Was able to put together a really nice kit with a lot of accessories and 3 lenses for about $1000, so ya, really good value for a full frame DSLR.
  • I am in the process of starting a photography business and had big decisions to make when it came to which brand and model I was going to go with for my 1st SLR. I like to be different than the masses so I was leaning towards Nikon over Canon. I was looking at purchasing the D600, but then read about the oil spot problems and decided to hold off. I couldn\'t justify buying the D800 for the money, but didn\'t want to throw my money away on the D600. With no good options left, I reluctantly decided that Canon was my only good option (although I definitely would have considered Pentax if they were producing an SLR at the time).Just as I was about to make the purchase, I saw that Nikon released the D610. I was ecstatic--thinking that timing is everything and that this might actually be the one for me. Positive reviews started flowing in--other than unhappy D600 owners. I will say that I sympathize with D600 owners because I would be mad as hell too after spending that kind of money. Needless to say, I don\'t rush out to buy something the day it hits the market. Especially, for $2k--I want to read a good sample of reviews first. Even though it\'s tough to support a company that left it\'s customers high and dry, I decided that this D610 was the camera for me and hoped that Nikon had learned it\'s lesson on the D600 so that a debacle like that doesn\'t happen again.On to the camera itself. I\'ve owned it for about 2 months now and have to say I\'m very pleased with the purchase.Pros:*** Picture Quality--has been phenomenal. It\'s amazing the level of detail 24 MP can provide. The RAW files are big--so I mostly work with the JPEGs. Make sure you have a big enough hard drive and fast enough computer to handle these files. I have the 27\" iMac and it works seamlessly.*** 6 FPS--is plenty fast unless you are shooting extremely fast moving subjects*** Quiet shutter--is definitely quieter than regular shutter, but I wouldn\'t say it\'s close to silent*** Dual Memory Card Slots--huge feature--you can use the 2nd slot from backup or solely for video or 1st slot for RAW / 2nd slot for JPEG (what I use)*** Built-in Flash--I will mostly be using an external flash, but it\'s still a very nice feature to have in case you need it*** U1 and U2 modes--these are customized settings that you can manually program to be able to use with the flip of a switch--certainly a nice feature to save time when shooting events such as weddings, etc.***Low light photography--is exceptional. Photos end up being much brighter than they are to the naked eye--it\'s pretty unreal how much light this image sensor can pick up.Cons:*** As others have stated, the 39 point auto focusing system is by no means terrible, but it does \"hunt\" at times--especially in low light. That\'s one of the main extras you\'re paying for in the D800, D4, etc. I imagine there is much faster reliable focusing on those models. Still the focus system is good enough for my purposes.I also highly recommend using Lightroom 5 as your photo editor--it\'s way better than iPhoto and some of the others. And do yourself a favor--to take full advantage of this camera--invest in good glass. I have the Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 and 70-200 f/2.8 and both combine with this camera for stunning detail. If you\'re investing this much money in a camera, don\'t go cheap on the glass. I also recommend buying the battery grip, if for no other reason than the camera feels much better in the hands. I can get 4 fingers on the body instead of 3 which makes me worry a lot less about my grip slipping.And lastly, I\'ve had no oil spot sensor problems after about 2,000 pictures. I hope this review is helpful. I\'d be happy to answer any questions you have about this model. Cheers!UPDATE (03/2014): I\'ve now owned the camera for 4 months and have taken over 4,000 pictures. There has been no dust/oil spot issues whatsoever. I continue to be extremely happy with the camera and am always discovering new settings/capabilities. I purchased the book, \"Mastering the Nikon D610\" by Darrell Young. It has really helped me understand the full functionality of the camera. The user\'s manual is not the easiest/most helpful reading material as you can imagine. I continue to get compliment after compliment about the quality of the images this camera produces (even from Canon owners of the 5DMIII and 6D). Once I decided on Nikon, I know I was torn deciding between the d800 and this camera. I feel confident in saying that this is the best bang for your buck in the current Nikon line. In fact, I like this camera so much that I\'ve decided to purchase a 2nd one (being a wedding photographer--I need two full frame bodies).
  • [UPDATE Nov 14 2014. 11 months since I have this excellent camera. Main task is taking beach photos under a torrid tropical sun in sandy dusty humid beaches when the sunny beach season gets in (November). I was appalled to notice 3 small kninda black dots in every photograph. I cleaned the lens, I ran the \"dust cleaning process\" and the \"sensor cleaning process\". THE DOTS DISAPPEARED! I do not know if they were dust dots, oil dots or whatever. They just disappeared through very easy fast cleaning. I AM SO HAPPY! 11 MONTHS OF OUTSTANDING SERVICE BY THIS MAGNIFICIENT NIKON D610!!!] ]I received this camera ON TIME in december 2013 and now the camera has had more than 6 months with several days of heavy use in tropical beaches and other tropical parts of my country. No problems at all. No oil or dust in sensor, just amazing images.The sensor in fact is one of the best that exist. DXoMark rated this sensor as 3rd best ever after the Nikon D800 and D800E sensors. But those sensors get a better grade essentially because they have more megapixels  ]. This camera has a bigger size pixel than the D800 and D800E (as far as I understand the D810 will be on sale on august and it has a superior sensor).It think its sensor is as good as the D800 and D800E, simple as that. The lens is awesome, some say that it is a professional lens at a very reasonnable price. ]The Nikon D600 had serious problems and many negative comments here are about the D600. The D610 seems to have fixed very well those problems.I am very very happy with this machine. It is a great value: Absolute superb quality at prices that may be called consumer-prices and not professional exorbitant prices. I repeat that the machine has been through intense use many days -not all the time- under heavy tropical sun and sand, in boats and cars, etc. Superb machine. Superb performance for the dollar. Thanks Nikon!
