Nikon D610 vs Nikon D700
Top 22 Reasons for the
Compared to Nikon D700
Vastly more megapixels (photo)
1.92x more megapixels (photo)
Modestly larger sensor
24 x 35.9 mm
23.9 x 36 mm
0.14% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Clearly lower noise at high ISO
27.01% lower noise at high ISO. The maximum ISO at which the device still captures excellent quality images. Source: DxOMark.
Noticeably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
20% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Explicitly better image quality
14 better image quality. A device's overall image quality score considers: color depth, dynamic range and low light performance. Source: DxOMark.
235 g lighter
Faster video autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting movies
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper movies.
Amply better color depth
6.81% better color depth. The better a device's color depth the more color nuances it can distinguish. Source: DxOMark.
Has a 24p cinema mode
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
Way more battery power
26.67% more battery power
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
A little less body volume
6.54% less body volume
Noticeably wider dynamic range
18.03% wider dynamic range. The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
Has a microphone in
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
A bit bigger screen size
6.67% bigger screen size. The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
6 mm narrower
10 mm shorter
Modestly higher resolution (screen)
921 k dots
920 k dots
1 k dots higher resolution (screen). A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
Has timelapse function
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
Has dual card slots
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
Lots more viewfinder coverage
5 % more viewfinder coverage. With 100% coverage you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage you may have to crop your photos afterwards to get them looking perfect.
Newer EXPEED version
Newer EXPEED version. Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.
Nikon D610 is better than Nikon D700 because...
Top Seven Reasons for the
Compared to Nikon D610
Vastly more focus points
12 more focus points. The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
Explicitly faster maximum shutter speed
2x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
The device can connect to WiFi.
Vastly longer battery life
100 shots longer battery life. CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
Explicitly faster flash X-sync
25% faster flash X-sync. Flash synchronization is defined as the firing of a photographic flash coinciding with the shutter admitting light to the image sensor. In general, faster flash sync speeds are better if the photographer needs to flash-fill subjects that are backlit and wants to avoid motion blur, or wants to increase depth of field by using a high aperture.
Explicitly more cross-type focus points
6 more cross-type focus points. Cross-type focus points, in contrast to normal focus points, can detect both horizonal and vertical making them the most precise and reliable focus points to use.
