Nikon D610 review – White balance and colour

Image: The level of fine detail rendered by the D610’s sensor is excellent

As with the D600, the camera’s auto white balance performs very well – it was good at judging most scenarios, ably neutralising any colour casts in the scene. As we’ve seen with other recent Nikon DSLRs, there’s also an Auto 2 mode designed to maintain a warm lighting colour under artificial light, should you want to retain the mood of the scene rather than produce a more neutral result.

Colour rendition in the D610’s standard colour mode is natural, but for those looking for more punch there’s the vivid setting, while mono shooters will welcome the range of black & white filter effects on offer.
