Like every Nikon flagship DSLR camera that has come before it, the D6 holds nothing back. Featuring Nikon's most powerful AF system to date for capturing every heart-pounding, pivotal moment, the D6 is an uncompromising workhorse that lives up to every professional demand in any environment. And because every second counts in the field, the D6 is loaded with new time-saving workflow enhancements and advanced customisation options. The moments that define us, that show what we’re capable of, the ones that live on, are waiting to be captured with a Nikon D6 DSLR.
The Nikon D6 breaks new ground in AF performance, outclassing the highly acclaimed AF system of its predecessor, the D5. A new high density, 105-point fully selectable, all cross-type sensor AF system, allows photographers to set focus almost anywhere in the frame without recomposing. A reimagined focus point layout reduces non-AF-sensitive areas with a triple sensor arrangement for each individual focus point resulting in 1.6x more AF coverage*, even with moving subjects in high-speed shooting modes.
For reliable subject acquisition around distracting foreground objects like a net, player or other obstacle, sports photographers will find the D6's 17 selectable group Area AF patterns indispensable.
The stellar combination of the D6's high-resolution 20.8MP FX-format CMOS sensor and state-of-the-art EXPEED 6 image-processing engine enables class-leading ISO's up to 102,400 (expandable to ISO 3,280,000) for glorious image quality in the widest range of lighting conditions and shooting scenarios. The profound levels of sensitivity and resolution achieved by the D6 greatly reduce low light noise and improve AF detection over the D5.
The D6 is powered by Nikon’s fastest, most comprehensive image processing engine to date, EXPEED 6. It’s the brains behind the camera’s stunning photo and video quality, AF power, low-light performance, noise suppression, distortion control, image clarity, colour reproduction and more.
For capturing the most electrifying of moments during high-speed sports and action, the D6 can shoot a remarkable 14 fps for up to 200 continuous shots at JPEG fine quality*. Its beautifully clear optical viewfinder allows real-time confirmation of the composition while its highly dependable mechanical shutter eliminates any concern of banding or flickering at high speeds—crucial under professional environments where every moment matters.
*When using E-type lenses, in CH mode and at shutter speed 1/250 second or faster.
While the D6's remarkable 14 fps speed may be more than enough for most action photography, the D6 is capable of shooting at an astonishing 60fps for digital applications where resolution may not be as critical. In movie live view mode, holding the shutter-release down can produce 2-megapixel images at approximately 60fps* or 8-megapixel images at approximately 30fps** for revealing minute differences during critical moments of action.
*With Full HD selected for image quality.
**With 4K UHD selected for image quality.
Note: AF is locked on the first frame while AE tracks in this mode.
When camera noise can be a potential distraction, switching to Live View allows you to get every shot utilising the D6's full 20.8MP at up to 10.5fps in complete silence.*
*AF is locked on the first frame while AE tracks. Rolling shutter distortion may occur.
Working in harmony with the D6’s dedicated AF and EXPEED 6 image-processing engines, a 180K-pixel Advanced Scene Recognition System identifies various aspects of the scene and makes fine adjustments to ensure complete accuracy in auto exposure, autofocus, auto
