    Is nikon d610 good for video?
    roberto
    6 months ago
    Quality of video output from the D610 is very good. Auto exposure and white balance produce nice, natural-looking colors. Footage can be shot at 30, 25 or 24 frames per second and at up to 24Mbps.

    Optimized for full-frame shooting, streamlined for compactness and value, the D610 will fuel your photographic passion like never before. Passionate photographers who seek uncompromised full-frame, high-resolution performance rely on Nikon FX-format HD-SLRs.

    davis_bartoletti

    This model unfortunately does not have built in WiFi as it is an entry level D-SLR. However, you can purchase an external wireless adapter from Nikon that plugs into the mini-USB port on the left hand side of the camera.

    Live view photography mode in the Nikon D610 is a mature, full-featured still imaging system that's easy to use. It allows you to take your eye away from the camera and use the Monitor as a viewfinder.

    The Nikon D610's weather sealing is dust and moisture resistant, while the top and rear covers are made of magnesium alloy, similar to the Nikon D800.

    The D610 is a very good camera and has Live View and uses standard batteries and SD cards. That said the D750 or D780 cameras have much better autofocus performance.

    In the D610 manual (p. 234): 1/250 s (Auto FP) : Auto FP high-speed sync is used when a compatible flash unit is attached. If the built-in flash or other flash units are used, shutter speed is set to 1/250 s.

Just a year after the arrival of Nikon's full-frame D600 in the fall of 2012, its replacement arrived in 2013. The D610 is the exact same as the D600 but with a new shutter mechanism that boosts continuous shooting and adds a 'Quiet Continuous' mode. The only other upgrade is an improved auto white balance system.

The Nikon D610 is a new full-frame DSLR camera that updates last year's D600 with a new shutter mechanism, faster 6fps burst shooting and a new Quiet Release Burst mode, and an improved auto white balance system. The D610 retains the same 24.3 megapixel full-frame sensor, 1080p HD video, ISO range of 50-25600, a 39-point AF system, 3.2-inch LCD screen and a viewfinder with 100% coverage as its predecessor.
