Nikon D610 review

Nikon cleans up its full-frame act with the D600 upgrade

Nikon D610 review

Switching to the Daylight white balance setting has produced a pleasing result, but it's a little on the warm-side. The auto white balance images looked too cold on the camera screen, but they are fine in reality.

The sepia effect here is in-camera using the weakest saturation setting (Sepia 1) for the Monochrome Picture Control mode.

This was shot using the automatic white balance settings (Auto 1) under fluorescent lights that look very yellow to the eye. The result is warm, but it looks natural and matches what we saw at the time of the shoot.

The detail visible in the feathers here is impressive, especially the very fine down which looks natural and not over-sharpened.

Colors are generally natural and punchy, while the exposure system copes well in a range of conditions.

There's no banding or excessive cyan coloration in the sky of this high-contrast scene. Thanks to the camera's high dynamic range the tonal gradations are smooth.
