D610, does it have bulb mode?

Checking out the quick review here, I like the D610, can't afford it at the moment but the spec sheet says slowest shutterspeed 30 seconds.. does that mean it does not have bulb mode?

Yes it does. It also has video,2 card slots ,pop-up flash.... Unlike other cameras in the Nikon line-up.

Thanks SeymourButts

I like it, I couldn't go so far as the D800 which for me would be overkill but the 610 could be about right.

I suppose dpreview will put a full review up in time, or is it because the D610 is so similar to the D600 that they haven't done it?

Another YES that it has Bulb. I use it quite often. I have set up U2 to, by default, be in manual, Bulb mode & with back button focus.

Yes, that would be my guess. The only thing of significance to change is the shutter design, to remove the oil spray feature. From the dpreview quick-look review:

The new D610 is a very minor upgrade to the D600, with just three new features. They include faster continuous shooting, a 'quiet continuous' mode, and an improved auto white balance system. The first two features are courtesy of a newly designed shutter mechanism.

Hi Simon,

I was considering looking at D600 because with the oil issue they might be quite a bit cheaper. I don't mind cleaning the chip regularly. But I see they are not discounted by much over the D610.

Why don't you download the manual from the Nikon website. It'll  help you make up your mind, answer most of your questions and then let you ask additional questions on this forum.

They are not discounting the D600 because they have to factoring in the cost of the extra warranty services !   , seriously why would you want to go there - rumor has it that Nikon is replacing the D600 with the D610 as part of their warranty service.

Yes, I quite quickly discounted the idea, the 610 is the one for me.

My current dslr is 13 years old, a D610 will be a big step up in many ways.

I prefer electronic to paper for a quick search.  I downloaded it from here.
