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

k, Adorama

  • 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.<br /><br />I am very worried about a return because I refused to accept the &quot;kit&quot;. 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-

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.

Poor Quality Photos

SadNikonUser, Nikon
2 March 2014
  • Summary: I shoot nature photography and bought this camera with hopes of going to the next step to improve my photos. Very disappointed with the clarity of my photos, shooting with a 300mm, f2.8 lense and the sharpness IS NOT there never mind adding a 1.4 teleconverter. My D300S gives far sharper images and therefore will not be using this body unless the quality can be improved through servicing the body at Nikon. I can not recommend this camera.

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.

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?

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.

Sharp camera, when it's in focus. AF problems!

Jeff, Nikon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I just purchased the D-610 with 24-85, 70-300, WiFi and case, all in a kit. I have previously owned the D-70 and D-300. Happy with both. I'm a full time working shooter (30+ years) and I teach at numerous colleges. I have always recommended Nikon, and will continue, BUT NOT THIS CAMERA.
