AF as­sist beam

As with all the other cam­eras on test, an AF as­sist beam helps with aut­o­fo­cus per­for­mance in low-light con­di­tions.

Pop-up flash

As with all cam­eras in the group apart from the D5500, the pop-up flash can be con­fig­ured as a wire­less com­man­der for com­pat­i­ble re­mote flash­guns.

Drive mode dial

The place­ment of this dial is the same as in the D7200, D7500 and D810. All three FX bod­ies fea­ture a ‘Quiet con­tin­u­ous’ drive mode.

Shoot­ing mode dial

There aren’t any ‘ef­fects’ avail­able on the shoot­ing mode dial, but a few, in­clud­ing Colour sketch, Colour out­line, Se­lec­tive colour and Minia­ture ef­fect, are avail­able dur­ing play­back in the Re­touch menu.

Viewfinder

Big, bright and clear, the pen­taprism viewfinder is easy on the eye and has the same mag­ni­fi­ca­tion fac­tor and 100 per cent frame cov­er­age as in the D750 and D810.

Left-hand but­tons

They’re slightly out of step with the D7200 and D750, lack­ing an i but­ton but giv­ing di­rect ac­cess to pic­ture con­trols like Stan­dard, Por­trait and Land­scape.

BKT but­ton

The handy ex­po­sure brack­et­ing but­ton is com­mon to the D7200, D610, D750 and D810.

Top LCD

The top info LCD fea­tures a greater range of in­for­ma­tion than the D7200, but the size of the char­ac­ters and icons is some­what smaller.

AE -L/AF-L

Un­like the D810, there’s no ded­i­cated AF-On but­ton, but this func­tion is avail­able by cus­tomis­ing the ac­tion of the auto-ex­po­sure lock/aut­o­fo­cus lock but­ton.
