  • Created discussions P610 surprises me again!
    Took some butterfly photos today and considering the windy conditions which made focusing a challenge and a wife and daughter who do not appreciate hanging around I am amazed at the hand held ...
  • I have a 52mm uv filter on my P610 to protect the lens. I think the threads that are present are really for the lens cap but they do also work as filter threads.
  • Ditto, although speed wise I was very happy with the P610 at the air show. Focus speed is excellent and I preferred the continuous low setting where there were no buffer issues. The ability to ...
  • Hi Mario Thanks for your reply, yes it's certainly easier to pick up the P610 and be confident of getting excellent quality photos.
  • Great photo of I think a Black Tailed Skimmer? The fungi photo is also superb!
  • Created discussions Prepare to be surprised!
    Took my P610 to the Flying Legends Air Show at Duxford near Cambridge UK yesterday. I took my P510 in 2013 and was a bit disappointed not so in 2015 with the P610. Not a very scientific ...
  • Same on the P610 if you are not in single shot mode the camera assumes you need a fast shutter speed and you cannot adjust to a lower speed so photos can come out under exposed. Just double ...
  • Replied in P900 and P610
    Take your point it is small but it is hugely improved over the previous low res evf's in the P510' 600 etc. I am getting used to it but yes a larger EVF would make a big difference. Certainly ...
  • Replied in P900 and P610
    From what I have seen they are comparable. The lens in the 610 is tried and tested in its predecessor the 600 and was well regarded for its sharpness considering its 60x range. Both the 610 and ...
  • Not had much chance to experiment further this week but I agree the jury is very much out. I suspect a good test to see what is going on would be a landscape shot with a dark foreground and blue ...
  • Let me know how you get on, I am going to do the same. Not so sure about leaving sharpness and colour on auto, main aim is to see if contrast on auto works to reduce blown highlights.
  • Anyone else tried setting the picture control setting to the auto settings? I just tried it and the results are interesting. My motivation was a few to many blown highlights on some photos taken ...
  • The P610 is mentioned and there is a link which compares a standard test photo from all cameras in the test plus the 610. The two Nikons look to be the sharpest overall, although the results are a ...
  • I have been experiencing something similar to what you describe. Today I was taking photos of some cows on a wide angle setting and the camera was refusing to focus on a subject that should not ...
  • Very impressive, given the low light conditions!
  • Thanks, I am really looking forward to getting out and about with the new camera but weather in UK not exactly like summer at the moment!
  • Created discussions P610 replaces P510
    I could not wait any longer and traded my P510 and a few old lens against a new P610 on Saturday. Wow! What an upgrade! My observations after 48 hours compared to P510. Sparrow hand held at 1440mm ...
  • Hi John, Thank you I will keep experimenting!
  • Hi John, Thank you for your reply, until yesterday I had not realised there was such a difference between the two cameras colour wise. The only thing I checked was white balance but it made no ...
  • Created discussions It's complicated!
    Hi folks, I don't post very often but do enjoy checking in with all the comments, especially recently with the arrival of the P610/900. I am pretty much decided that my trusty P510 will be replaced ...
