Rumor: Nikon preparing to announce new D5300 and D610 DSLR cameras
By [NR] admin | Published: August 29, 2013




The latest rumors are that Nikon will release new D5300 and D610 DSLR cameras. I am still working on the details, but such announcement will be within the new company strategy to concentrate on entry level DSLR models. The D5300 will most likely be a marginal improvement over the D5200, maybe with built-in Wi-Fi and GPS functionality (just a speculation). The D610 is the more interesting development. I think the main reason behind the D610 is not so much to introduce new functionality as to kill once and for all the D600 sensor oil issue that prevented many people from buying it. Think of it like the SB-910 flash release - it did not have any major new features, it just fixed the overheating issue of the SB-900. This explains also the recent massive discounts on refurbished D600 cameras.

Wow... If D610 is a version without AA filter like D7100, it will be a dream model!

Dont think so though, as it will probably hit the sales of the D7100 and D800E.

Interesting... If the Nikon D400 is out this year as well, we would have quite a number of new dSLRs this year.

Yeah. Nikon should replace all those defective D600 owners with d new D610. Poor design in d first place.
Question is whether are the shortcomings and issues that serious to warrant a replacement model in such a short period. Defective D600 would have been fixed under warranty conditions.

I think the D610 is just to convince customer to come back since the D600's name is pretty much stained by the oil issue. :p problem is that it may be hard to resell the D600 in the future though, since people are likely to look for D610 only. :/

Its just a marketing tools to pop up the poor publicity from the fallout of the last incident. The damage have been done by the string of publicity. The new patch have already resolve the issue but the sale is not up to expectation. Just a rebadge D600 to D610 I wonder is there any different in specifications. I hope the changes is close to the D7100 spec I believe they will replace a new shutter at what price is a ???

It can be a marketing strategy. Take on a new name and rebrand the D6xx series.
