|The Coolpix P610 was presented by Nikon in March 2015. It is a Superzoom Digital Camera.|
In additional Coolpix P610 has a Compact CMOS sensor with size of 6 x 5 mm² (0.24" x 0.18").
Also Coolpix P610's image sensor has an effective resolution of around 16 megapixel. The resolution is somewhat below average but will be sufficient for most purposes. Photos with this resolution can easily be printed to A3 size.
The Nikon supports taking images in RAW. RAW images are stored as they come from the sensor, without any in-camera processing or sharpening. Converting to JPEG or other formats takes place on the computer, using software like Adobe Lightroom or Nikon's RAW converter. This involves one extra processing step but almost always results in superior image quality. Some filters, like converting to monochrome (black and white) will only yield decent results when used with RAW images.

|Auto Focus Properties|
The Coolpix P610's auto focus processor uses 1 AF points (or sensors). A basic rule of thumb says that the more AF points you have, the better. More AF points mean a better chance to have a point at the location of interest in a scene, a big plus in challenging situations (e.g. in low light).
Manual focus is also possible with the Nikon, a plus in tricky situations or for some creative freedom.
