Nikon’s D600 received a minor upgrade in the form of a new model D610. The new model has received a minor upgrade for the camera, though it lacked the expected Wi-Fi feature.
Other upgrades includes a new mode which allows quiet continuous shooting mode allowing the user to shoot in “near silence” mode, better white balance and increase in the speed of continuous shooting. Apart from these minor upgrades, there is not much of a noticeable difference between the D610 and D600.
Nikon claims the D600 as an”affordable” fully loaded camera which consists of 24 million pixel 35mm sensor. The AF system a feature in the D600 is similar to the D4 camera with an EXPEED 3 processing engine. The D600 faced issues during its launch with photographers had problems with Oil spots and dust in the sensor. Nikon has probably fixed these issues in the new D610, though Nikon hasn’t officially announced about it.
Though the new D610 was rumored to feature inbuilt Wi-Fi which would have bought the model closer in competition with Canon EOS 6D. However Nikon did not want the new feature to be added in the upgrade.
The Nikon D610 will be priced at £1799.99/US$1999.95 and the 24-85mm lens at £2299.99/US$2599.99 available starting 18th October.
