Description

The Nikon D6 is Nikon's flagship full-frame Digital SLR. The D6 is is a tough workhorse pro camera with a focus on incredible AF speed, low light performance, reliability and precision in both still photography and videos. The D6 features a 20.8MP FX-format sensor and an EXPEED 6 image processor that enables a super-fast 14 fps continuous shooting rate, a sensitivity range from ISO 100-102400 (extendable to 3280000) and 4K video recording at 30 fps.

Incredible image quality
The 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.

Powerful EXPEED 6 image processor
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.

Powerful AF
The 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.

Precision focusing with 17 custom Group Area AF choices
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.

Silent operation
When camera noise can be a potential distraction, switching to Live View allows you to get every shot utilizing the D6's full 20.8MP at up to 10.5fps in complete silence.

14 fps continuous shooting
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.

Impressive video capability
The D6 is up to the challenge when video content is part of the assignment. Capture beautifully-detailed 16:9 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160) with an angle of view approx. 1.5x lens focal length. 60p Full HD for exciting, over cranked action or smooth slow-motion in post. Plus, a host of helpful capture tools like focus peaking, zebra stripes, timecode and electronic VR.

60 fps stills in video mode
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.

Tough build with weather sealing
The extremely robust and durable D6 is constructed with incredibly strong, yet remarkably lightweight magnesium alloy to stand up to the toughest professional demands while maintaining high electromagnetic-shielding and heat-emission performance. The shutter unit has been tested for 400,000 cycles.
Extensive sealing of joined sections ensures Nikon's most comprehensive resistance to dust and water droplets, designed to keep out the elements so photographers can continue to shoot with the utmost confidence.

High-resolution monitor with full touch control
Outfitted with a beautiful 2360k-dot high-resolution, fully touch-operable 3.2-inch LCD, interfacing with the D6 is as intuitive as using a smartphone.

Lag-free optical viewfinder
The brilliant optical viewfinder in the D6 was designed for clear, real-time visibility with a natural, stress-free viewing experience under various lighting conditions, even during long hours of shooting.

Dual CFexpress card slots
The D6's dual, future-proof card slots are compatible with both CFexpress and XQD cards. Set them up for overflow, backup, separating RAW+JPEG or JPEG photos of different sizes. Files can be copied between cards or played back from either card.

Built-in GPS
When knowing the exact location a photo or video was taken is beneficial—nature and landscapes, astrophotography, photojournalism—the D6 can automatically record accurate location and time data and store it along with the image file.

Well connected
Transfer photos and videos, even RAW images, wirelessly to a smart device via the SnapBridge app over the D6's built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth. Wired LAN supports the highly acclaimed 1000BASE-T standard with 15% faster transfer speeds than the D5. In the studio, wireless LAN connections can be obtained with either the built-in dual band 2.4/5 GHz transmitter or with the faster, more reliable WT-6A/B/C Wireless Transmitter (optional).
