According to various reliable sources, the Nikon D610 DSLR will enter the marketplace October 7th or 8th. It appears the new camera’s major specifications will be nearly identical to the current D610 model, except for 6 frames-per-second (fps) continuous shooting mode, compared to the D600’s 5.5 fps. At least one industry expert has speculated that the primary reason for introducing the D610 is to provide would-be D600 buyers with an alternative, following the sensor oil issue that has retarded sales.
The D610 and the new D5300 that is also expected during fall 2013 appear to be part of a Nikon’s strategy to concentrate on developing more entry-level DSLRs and increasing its share of that market segment. This strategy gained more credibility during mid-September when Nikon announced that the prices of the older D600 and D5100 were no longer protected by the company’s Minimum Advertised Price policy. Retailers are now free to sell remaining inventory at any price the market will bear. If that wasn’t enough to transform rumor into fact, Nikon has already listed the D5100 as a discontinued model.
Although it may be a few months before the D5300 is officially announced and released, it is rumored to include Wi-Fi and GPS functionality and will be equipped with the new EXPEED 4 processor.
Early details on the D610’s specifications reveal a direct match with the D600, except the aforementioned fps speed. The camera is not expected to include Wi-Fi or GPS.
