Excerpt: I'm a recreational photographer. I had a Nikon d70, but wanted to upgrade, primarily for better performance in low light. I'm very impressed with d610. Much better low light images. Better quality in general. Auto actually takes good photos so it is a bit easier to use. Would recommend for people who know something about aperature and shutter speed, not for someone who just wants a point and shoot.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: Going from using a crop sensor DSLR to a full frame has been a world of difference in low light situations. It didn't take but a couple of shots to notice the difference and look forward to shooting in environments that I dreaded.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: I have been using a D200 for several years. I wanted to add video capabilities and decided to take the plunge to full-frame (FX) instead of cropped sensor (DX). I have only had it a couple of weeks, but so far I couldn't be happier. It is a great camera!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Full-frame Format, Good High-iso Perfromance, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Summary: This is the finest camera Nikon currently offers, yes including the new d810. This has so much to offer technically and is user friendly. If your looking for a auto program camera, this is not it even though it will still give you great point and shoot high quality photos. If you really learn how to utilize the features, you will pass on all the rest. At 24mp it is a find. It will make you a better photographer than you are.
Excerpt: Have used this for a lot of different capturing since purchasing it. I have used it for commercial and fine art uses. It was the perfect upgrade for me as an emerging photographer and recent BFA graduate.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
