Nikon D610 Price in US

A successor for Nikon’s full-frame D600 was released in 2013, less than a year after the first model was introduced in the fall of 2012. The only difference between the D610 and the D600 is a redesigned shutter mechanism that improves the D610’s continuous shooting capabilities and adds an option called “Quiet Continuous.” An enhanced auto white balance mechanism is the only significant addition to this version.

The Nikon D600 is a superior digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR) that possesses exceptional still image quality, a sturdy body, and remarkable capabilities for capturing moving images. Unluckily for Nikon, the D600 is arguably most known for its tendency to gather oil on the sensor. This is a problem for which Nikon first just released a service recommendation, rather than recognizing the underlying reason of the problem. After the D610 had been on the market for more than four months, Nikon finally directly acknowledged the problem by stating that: “Nikon has thoroughly evaluated these reports and has determined that these spots are caused by dust particles which may become visible when the camera is used in certain circumstances.” Nikon’s statement came more than four months after the D610 had been introduced. Even though the original warranty has expired, it will now provide owners of a D600 with a free examination, cleaning, and replacement of the shutter assembly and any other associated parts.

Some people on the internet have theorized that Nikon manufactured the D610 to get rid of the problems that were present in the D600. And the introduction of a new model so quickly following the release of the D600, with essentially no modifications other than a new shutter mechanism, appears to lend some validity to the aforementioned idea. Nevertheless, due to the company’s reluctance to acknowledge the issue with the D600, we haven’t received definitive confirmation from Nikon that the oil problem has been “officially” rectified.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at the D610 and see what new features it offers. The D610 has a frame rate of 6 fps, which is an improvement from the D600’s 5.5 fps. A new option called Quiet Continuous shoots at 3 frames per second and, as the name suggests, creates less noise than other continuous shooting modes as it does so. In the end, the auto white balance algorithm has been improved so that it can create colors that are more accurate when lit by artificial sources and skin tones that are more accurate.
