A complete sheet of the Nikon D610 tech specs has been leaked over the internet a few hours ago. The hardware specifications of the new DSLR appear identical to its predecessor.
The new SLR camera, designed to replace the Nikon D600, equips a 24.3-megapixel sensor with a superior 39-point AF system at f/5.6 with Scene Recognition and 100% viewfinder coverage, ISO range from 100 to 6400, a 3.2-inch LCD screen at 921,000 dots, and EN-EL15 Lithium-ion Battery with which it would be possible to use the MB-D14 Multi Battery Power Pack. It also features TTL metering and recording capabilities of video at 1920×1080 30p/25p/24p pixels.
The camera dimensions will measure 141x113x83mm; consequently the body of the new model would also be similar to the D600. The main difference between the two would be in the sensor, characterized by an improved trigger mechanism. The market success of Nikon D600 has been undermined by a serious problem as confirmed by the manufacturer itself, that it accumulates dust in the built-in sensor. As a result, the company is reportedly planning to eliminate this problem completely by introducing the Nikon D610.
At present, it is unknown whether there will be other improvements in the new SLR, in addition to the improved sensor. According to the rumors, the Nikon D610 is just one of the innovations that the manufacturer is preparing for the coming months.
Moreover, Nikon D5300 is also expected to introduce some hardware improvements compared to the previous model in the series (Nikon D5200) by adding support for Wi-Fi and GPS functionality. Consumers who are waiting for the new Nikon D4x (or similar) will have to wait for a little longer because the launch has been postponed, which is likely to happen in early 2014.
