24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
10.Measurably wider dynamic range
14.4Evsvs 12.2Evs (Nikon D700)
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.
11.Amply more battery power
1900mAhvs 1500mAh (Nikon D700)
12.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (Nikon D700)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
113mmvs 123mm (Nikon D700)
14.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (Nikon D700)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
15.A little bit less body volume
1306.51cm³vs 1392cm³ (Nikon D700)
16.A little bit higher resolution (screen)
921k dotsvs 920k dots (Nikon D700)
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
141mmvs 147mm (Nikon D700)
18.A bit bigger screen size
3.2"vs 3" (Nikon D700)
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
19.Has timelapse function
Yesvs No (Nikon D700)
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.
20.Plenty more viewfinder coverage
100%vs 95% (Nikon D700)
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.
21.Newer EXPEED version
3vs 1 (Nikon D700)
Newer image processors are better at processing multiple tasks simultaneously, and can produce higher quality images with better low-light performance and faster AF.
22.Has dual card slots
Yesvs No (Nikon D700)
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.

2. Nikon D700

7 Reasons why Nikon D700 is better

Comparing Nikon D700 vs Nikon D610

1.Significantly more focus points
51vs 39 (Nikon D610)
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.
2.Clearly longer battery life
1000shotsvs 900shots (Nikon D610)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
3.Has WiFi
Yesvs No (Nikon D610)
The device can connect to WiFi.
4.Sizably faster maximum shutter speed
0.000125svs 0.00025s (Nikon D610)
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
77mmvs 82mm (Nikon D610)
6.Explicitly faster flash X-sync
0.004svs 0.005s (Nikon D610)
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.
7.Significantly more cross-type focus points
15vs 9 (Nikon D610)
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.
