The Nikon D610 uses Secure Digital (SD) memory cards to store photos and video. The D610 has two card slots. You can put SD, SDHC, SDXC type cards. The D610 supports high speed UHS-1 (also written as UHS-I) transfer protocol for maximum throughput up to 99 MB/second. For best performance, choose a UHS-1 card.
Traditionally SD media cards have a Class rating. Higher Class numbers support faster read and write speeds. You should use at least a minimum of Class 6 (6 MB/second) for recording video with the D610; Class 10 (10 MB/second or faster) is highly recommended for faster writing of images. There is no Class beyond Class 10, instead you should look for the UHS-1 designation. These cards perform up to 99 MB/second and will allow you to download files from your camera or SD card much faster (with compatible card reader). Note, the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port on the camera is limited to 35MB/second speed, if you want to download pictures faster, use an external USB 3.0 Card Reader.
Nikon has tested many SD cards with the D610 and approved several for the D610. Wising other SD cards than specified may work, but these have not been tested. For maximum compatibility, choose one of the following cards.
