Nikon D610 frame grab

Nikon’s D610 DSLR is an update to the company’s entry-level full-frame camera, the D600.

Ahead of our full review of the D600 and D610 — the review will cover both cameras — we’re publishing a short film produced using each model.

From a technical point of view, the video functions of the D610 and D600 are very similar; most improvements on the D610 are for stills.

The footage is ungraded, save for some minor exposure adjustments and was filmed using ambient light.

But the camera does record full-frame 35mm video (as h.264 Quicktime files), and like Nikon’s other higher-end cameras, features a “clean” HDMI out for recording to an external unit.

The video sample below, though, was recorded internally to the camera’s SD card.

The short clip here was filmed at 1080p, 25fps, 1/50th second at f5.6 at 100ASA with the Nikkor 50mm f1.4 lens and a Røde Video Mic Pro recording ambient sound.
