The photography enthusiast on your list will love this splurge-worthy, full-frame digital SLR. Along with offering several new features from the previous model, the Nikon D610 adds one crucial upgrade: a new shutter mechanism that allows this camera to shoot up to 6 frames per second. That's not only quicker than its predecessor, but it also should remedy an issue the older camera had with accumulating dust or oil on the image sensor. It also has an impressive full-frame (aka 35mm-size) CMOS sensor, with 24.3 MP of resolution and large, individual pixels with more surface area for capturing more light than an APS-C sensor. The D610's optical viewfinder offers 100 percent coverage for framing a full scene, while its 3.2-inch, 921,000-dot LCD screen is great for reviewing shots. The D610 also adds a quieter burst shooting mode and better white balance.
