Nikon has today announced an upgrade to the D600, revealing their latest full-frame DSLR, the Nikon D610. Featuring a 24.3 megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100 to 6,400 and an EXPEED 3 image processor (the same as the D600), the D610 is mostly a faster camera.

Able to shoot at 6FPS in both DX and FX formats, the D610 features a new Quiet Release burst mode which reduces the sound of the mirror return mechanism, whilst capturing stills at 3FPS.

Furthermore, the D610 also features a Multi-CAM 4800 39-point AF system, with Advanced Scene Recognition, a 2,016 pixel RGB metering system and is capable of recording video in Full HD 1080p at 20p, 25p and 24p. In 720p the camera can record at 60p, 50p and 25p and video can be outputted through HDMI.

The camera also includes a few extra modes, such as Time-Lapse Shooting and HDR, as well as allowing for in-camera editing and picture controls.

The D610 is also compatible with Nikon’s WU-1b Mobile Adpater, allowing you to connect to Wi-Fi via the camera, and the battery life is said to last around 900 shots or 60 minutes of shooting.

Nikon say that the camera will start up in 0.13 seconds, and the shutter release time is said to only be 0.052 seconds.

On the back of the camera, there’s a 3.2 inch 921k-dot wide-viewing angle LCD display.

The Nikon D610 will be available from October 18th in the UK, started at £1,799.99 for the body, or £2,299.99 for the 24-85mm lens kit.
