The Nikon D610 DSLR Camera features a full-frame, FX-format 24.3
megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor to produce
high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video with notable image
detail and low-light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 25600. The sensor
and processor work together to enable high image quality with a wide
dynamic range and high signal-to-noise ratio that produces both smooth
color and tonal gradations with low noise levels for enhanced overall
clarity. These two technologies also combine to provide a wealth of
speed throughout the D610, including a continuous shooting rate of 6 fps
and a quiet shooting mode that allows the camera to record sequential
imagery without the mirror raising or lowering.
A Multi-CAM 4800 AF sensor is integrated into the camera's design and
produces fast autofocus speeds using a 39-point array to precisely
acquire focus in a wide array of lighting conditions. Seven of the
central AF points are compatible with f/8 or faster lenses, which
greatly enhances the autofocus performance with longer, telephoto lenses
used in combination with teleconverters. When recording movies or
working in live view, a contrast-detection focusing method works to
continuously deliver accurate focus with subject-tracking and
face-detection capabilities using the full-time servo mode.
Full HD 1080p video is supported up to 30 fps in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264
format and manual control over the ISO, shutter speed, and aperture is
possible for optimized control over the look and feel of movies.
Uncompressed recording is possible with an optional external recorder
connected via the HDMI port and, additionally, both headphone and
microphone ports are available for refined control over recorded sound.
Extending the D610's connectivity, an accessory terminal is compatible
with the optional WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter and GP-1A GPS Unit for
wireless image sharing, remote camera control, and geotagging
