Nikon will release an ever-so-slightly modified version of last year's totally fantastic, D600 full-frame DSLR. The new D610's only change is its drive. The camera will now feature a slowed-down "quiet-continuous mode" that will fire frames sequentially at a slowed-down 3 fps with closer-to-silent shutter action so you don't disturb the birds or whatever you're taking pictures of. You'll also be able to shoot at a maximum of 6 fps (improved from 5.5 fps) when you're not worried about being too loud.

The best part about the upgrade is that the base price for the D610 body will be $2000 instead $2100. The MSRP for last year's D600 will drop to an undisclosed point well into sub-$2000 land—heck yeah!
