D610 Specific Operational Considerations

The following operational considerations apply only to the D610.

Camera Firmware

For best results, use the latest camera body firmware and distortion control lens data. The latest firmware for the D610 is C:1.01, available for download at Nikon USA and Nikon EU. The latest distortion control lens data for the D610 is L:2.005, available for download at Nikon Service & Support.

Flash Sync Speed - Custom Camera Setting

When using the D610 and ControlTL radios the camera's "Flash Sync Speed" setting must be set to "1/200 s (Auto FP)." This setting can be found in the "Bracketing/Flash" Custom Settings menu. This is different from other Nikon cameras, which require a Flash Sync Speed setting of 1/250 s (Auto FP).

Frame Clipping

Some clipping may occur at fast Rear Curtain Sync capable shutter speeds, for example 1/125, or at some High Speed Sync (HSS) shutter speeds if a MASTER Speedlight is in use on-camera and all 3 remote zones are engaged. This will not occur when using an AC3 ZoneController.

Clipping can also occur at faster HSS shutter speeds if you use a MASTER flash in the top shoe of your on-camera MiniTT1 or FlexTT5, and have the flash set to non-MASTER Mode. To eliminate this clipping, keep the flash in MASTER mode and deselect the zones rather than taking the flash out of MASTER mode.

Camera Battery Power

This camera will only perform as expected with the ControlTL system if the camera’s battery is 60% or greater. Always make sure the camera’s battery is fully charged before use.

For best performance with a battery grip, use the setting "Use Camera Battery First," d13 in the camera's Custom Setting Menu.
