Nikon D610 is better than Nikon D700 because...
Top Six Reasons for the
Compared to Nikon D610
Considerably 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.
Measurably 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.
Noticeably 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.
Significantly 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.
A shade thinner
5 mm thinner
