Not too long ago it was rumored that Nikon could be announcing a new camera on the 7-8 of October in the form of the Nikon D610, and sure enough the rumors were right on the money as the camera has since been announced. According to the rumors, the D610 was expected to be a slight upgrade over the Nikon D600 which means that if you were looking forward to groundbreaking hardware specifications and features, you might be disappointed. However those who were holding off on purchasing the D600, perhaps this is the camera for you, and for those looking to get the D600, chances are the D610 will be its replacement so you might want to move quick while D600 units are still in stock.
The changes Nikon has made includes an improved shutter mechanism and new quiet continuous shooting options. It will also see a higher FPS rate and improved white balance and is expected to be released late October and will come with a price tag of $2,000 for the body-only. Given that this is essentially the D600 with upgraded features, photographers can look forward to a 24.3MP sensor, an ISO range of 100-6,400, a 39-point AF system, 100% viewfinder coverage, Full HD video recording, and a 3.2” LCD display.
