Still spots on the sensor

ATL Photographer, B&H Photo
21 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I am a professional photographer and have used Nikon for years. I upgraded a old D300 to this body. I had heard of oil spots showing up on the D600 and the issue was suppose to be resolved with the 610. After only having the camera about a month I began to see spots forming in the corner of the frame. I returned the camera and purchased another D 610. This time I tested the new camera in the studio and noticed oil spots again.
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality

theoretical good features-the worst customer service ever

Jorge Anadon Arnillas, Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: The camera D610 was bought in amazon.com in February, it was okay but with 1200 shoots, it started to have some spots in the images, always in the same area, and ruining my pics from Greek Islands. People said it is dirtiness in the sensor, the sensor was checked by nikkon seller and it's okay, it is clean.

Careful when you purchase

  • Excerpt: I am commenting on the sales process. The camera body itself, I can't tell because it is too soon to spot manufacturing problems related to the oil leaks and ERR messages and bricking that have been notorious with the 600.I am very worried about a return because I refused to accept the "kit". I had a screaming fight with the salesman.
  • Pros: Good Image Quality
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light, Useless Video Sound-

Beware!

  • Excerpt: I bought the D610 last month expecting to have resolved the dust/oil issue of the previous model. I was very happy with it, but I returned it yesterday due to too many oil spots I found after 500 photographs taken. I've attached one of the shots. Hope this is helpful.

I have completely lost faith in Nikon with the D610

jpogar, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • Summary: After having some challenges with my last Nikon (D300), I thought it might have been an isolated issue. I was very excited to order and receive my Nikon D610 thinking the issues with the D600 were resolved. However, out of the box, the viewfinder was completely blurry.....couldn't see a thing. Tried adjusting with the diopter control, looked on Nikon support site, and nothing worked to correct it.

Still the oil/dust issue

ana ortega, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I had a D90 for 6 years, never cleaned it and never had dust problems with the sensor filter. Now I bought the Nikon D610 and since I received it, there is dust or oil spots in the sensor. Nikon Support just told me to cleaned it as it says in the manual but obviously the 2 spots are still in all my pictures!!! I regret not changing to Canon!!

Blurry Viewfinders in 2 D610's

John L. Mcdonald, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: I ordered a D610 and received it on Jan 26th. Charged up the battery and tried to use it. Viewfinder was very blurry, could not be resolved by using the diopler adjustment. Called Amazon and they sent me another one ASAP. I was to have UPS pick up the package at my home. I picked up the second one at the UPS office on Jan 28th. Again camera has a blurry viewfinder. Spoke to several people at Nikon Service. Nothing they had me try worked.

Outdated Video Focus, and stunning quality problem with Nikon

Goldberg, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: If you are buying latest DSLR camera at this price point, you will shoot video and thus you want to have video autofocus that actually works. D610 uses contrast detection autofocus that is clueless. Whenever you zoom or change the subject during video recording, autofocus goes back and forth and frequently loses focus completely. Canon's 70D uses phase detection autofocus, and when I tested it, works very very well.

D610 with oil spots out of the box

bcn2, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Just received a new D610. Same oil spot issue left upper quadrant as with my previous D600. Started out with 3 spots on 5th shot, after 200 clicks now 10-15spots. You see these spots best when taking pictures of a deep blue sky with higher aperture F13, 70-300 lens zoomed out. Doesn't look like Nikon has fixed the sensor/oil issue with this camera. Has anyone had this issue with their D610?
