These cam­eras are so sim­i­lar there don’t seem to be many changes, but the D610 has a fair few ad­van­tages…

Key dif­fer­ences

01 More of the same

Phys­i­cally, these two D-SLRs are very sim­i­lar. The 850g mag­ne­sium al­loy body is con­ve­nient to cart around all day, and ro­bust enough to stand up to pro­fes­sional us­age, while the lay­out of the con­trols is the same en­thu­si­ast-ori­en­tated de­sign as on the D7100, mak­ing it ideal for users new to full­frame cam­eras.

02 Faster burst shoot­ing

Half a frame per sec­ond gained on the D610 may not sound like much, but go­ing from 5.5 to six frames per sec­ond gives you an ex­tra shot ev­ery two sec­onds, which is es­pe­cially use­ful for in­creas­ing your chances of suc­cess when shoot­ing fast­mov­ing sub­jects such as sports or wildlife.

03 Be more discreet

The Quiet Con­tin­u­ous mode adds a more sub­tle edge to the burst mode. It knocks the speed down to three frames per sec­ond to min­imise the noise caused by mir­ror move­ment in­side the cam­era, which is use­ful for shoot­ing in­doors, es­pe­cially when pho­tograph­ing events such as wed­dings.

04 Auto white bal­ance im­prove­ments

Although this is some­what dif­fi­cult to mea­sure, the auto white bal­ance has been im­proved, and it def­i­nitely re­acts more quickly than be­fore. If light­ing con­di­tions change the cam­era is ca­pa­ble of re­spond­ing rapidly, which is use­ful when mov­ing from out­side to in­doors.
