Message Text: Nikon today announced the Nikon D610, the latest FX-format HD-SLR to provide enhanced performance and image quality improvements, coupled with Nikon core technologies.

Designed to be an attractive option for those willing to step up to FX-format, the Nikon D610 HD-SLR features a 24.3-megapixel FX-format (35.9 x 24mm) CMOS sensor, Nikon's EXPEED 3 image processing engine, a wide ISO range (ISO 100 to 6,400; 25,600, Hi-2), along with a 39-Point AF System and Scene Recognition System. Users can select single point, continuous, dynamic or 3D autofocus modes to adapt to any shooting situation from static subjects to dynamic athletics. The Nikon D610's 39-point AF system acquires focus throughout the frame, even on fast moving subjects. For further accuracy, the system uses Nikon's 3D Color Matrix Metering II 2016 pixel RGB Sensor in conjunction with the Scene Recognition System to analyze the scene and adjust exposure, white balance and focus. Furthermore, the D610 utilizes nine cross-type sensors, seven of which retain AF ability up to f/8, a boon to wildlife and sports photographers who rely on teleconverters for maximum distance.

An updated AWB algorithm promises to offer more vivid skies and more natural-appearing reproduction of artificial light than before. A new shutter mechanism in the D610 also affords a faster frame rate. Users can now capture the action at a continuous 6 frames-per-second (fps).

For weddings and other sensitive events, the D610 also features a new Quiet Continuous Shutter Mode. When selected via the main command dial, users can shoot discreetly at up to 3 fps.

The camera's optical viewfinder offers 100% frame coverage. Additionally, the high-resolution 921K dot, 3.2-inch LCD screen is viewable from a wide variety of angles.

With a wide variety of creative modes, a series of images with multiple exposures can be combined with built-in HDR, while users can explore their inner artist with an automatic Time Lapse Mode, or the intervalometer found in all advanced Nikon D-SLR's. To adjust color, saturation and other image parameters on the fly, Picture Controls can be applied to both stills and HD video.

The Nikon D610 accepts two SD memory cards, which users can set to copy and overflow, or mark as one dedicated video when shooting multimedia. Additionally, the D610 accepts SDXC and UHS cards.

The camera captures Full 1080P HD video in a variety of frame rates, including a cinematic 24p and 30p. A feature inherited from professional Nikon cameras, the Nikon D610 can feed 100% full screen, uncompressed video via HDMI to an external device such as a monitor or digital recorder. Additionally, a stereo microphone and headphones can be connected through thoughtfully placed auxiliary input jacks for capturing and monitoring audio.

The Nikon D610 is compatible with a wide variety of NIKKOR Lenses and with Nikon's Creative Lighting (CLS) System.

The Nikon D610 D-SLR will be available in late October 2013 in a variety of configurations:
