Nikon D610 Review – Improved Shutter Mechanism Eliminates Dirty Sensor Problem

The full-frame DSLR camera Nikon D610 is for enthusiasts who are upgrading from mid-range models and professionals who want an affordable backup for their higher-end models. Introduced in October this year, this camera replaces Nikon’s one year old model D600. D610 includes three new features: quiet continuous mode, faster continuous shooting and an improved system for automatic White balance. The first two features are provided by the camera’s shutter mechanism that has been newly designed to address the dirty sensor mechanism issue of D600. The D610 is capable of shooting at 6 frames per second in the normal mode and at 3 frames per second in the quiet continuous mode. The new automatic white balance system reproduces color accurately even in artificial lighting and skin tones that are more realistic.
