Description: FX Format 24.3 Megapixels 6 FPS Continuous Shooting 100-6400 ISO 72mm Kit Lens Filter The Nikon D610 Digital SLR with 24-85mm VR Nikkor Lens delivers enhanced performance and image quality improvements over its predecessor, the D600. With a full-frame, FX-format 24.3 megapixel CMOS Sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor, the Nikon D610 produces outstanding image quality, full HD 1080p video, and excellent low-light sensitivity expandable to ISO 25600. These enhanced technologies combine to make the D610 nice and speedy, with a continuous shooting rate of 6 fps. Ultimately, the D610 is a camera for the enthusiasts with an eye and emphasis on the color, sharpness, and clarity of their images. 24.3 Megapixel FX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 3 Image Processor Passionate photographers who seek uncompromised full-frame, high-resolution performance rely on Nikon FX-format HD-SLRs. With a level of performance only bested by Nikon's own D800 series D-SLRs, D610's 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, wide dynamic range and high S/N (signal-to-noise) ratio captures every detail with lifelike sharpness and low noise throughout its wide ISO range. 39-Point Autofocus System One of the keys to capturing razor-sharp images is a fast, precise autofocus system, and the D610 has one of the best. 39 tightly packed focus points with wide-area AF coverage offer endless compositional possibilities. Nine cross-type sensors in the center offer superior accuracy even when light and contrast are scarce. Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S VR Nikkor Lens The Nikon 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S VR Nikkor Lens is an advanced and versatile FX-format standard zoom with VR II image stabilization. Covering a versatile wide angle to medium telephoto zoom range, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR delivers noticeably sharper photos and HD videos thanks to Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) . Exposure Metering and Scene Recognition System The D610 delivers consistently beautiful images, thanks to Nikon's intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II. Its 2,016 pixel RGB sensor evaluates every scene, taking into account brightness, contrast, subject distance and the scene colors, all within the time it takes to press the shutter release button. Full HD 1080p Movie Recording Shoot 1080p HD videos with selectable frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression. Bend time with 720p HD at 60p, 50p or 30p for ultra-smooth video playback of fast moving subjects, or create slow-motion footage during post processing. Built-In Pop-Up Flash and i-TTL Support The D610's built-in pop-up flash offers up new shooting possibilities that other cameras simply can't match-and not just in low-light situations. Even well lit subjects can benefit from a balanced fill flash for extra depth and dimension. And since the D610's flash integrates with Nikon's i-TTL system, it can act as a Commander and communicate crucial exposure information to two groups of remote flashes across three channels for accurate lighting and exceptional results. When you need the extra power, add an optional accessory Nikon Speedlight for more lighting possibilities.
