The pinnacle of optical precision and performance is here. Meet the D6, the camera with the most powerful autofocus (AF) in Nikon’s history. Elevate your craft to a new dimension and never miss a critical moment with its all-selectable cross sensor 105-point AF with high-density placement.
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.
Capture decisive moments at approximately 14 fps with AF/AE tracking in viewfinder shooting. Even when using dynamic-area AF and 3D-tracking, maintain the focus and track the action with a new AF engine. For professionals in the field, faster image transfers can give you an edge with enhanced connectivity and agile operability. High image quality and sensitivity range are assured with the EXPEED 6 image-processing engine and an ISO sensitivity of 102,400 that also goes up to Hi-5 (equivalent to 3,280,000). The D6 completes its design as a credible and noteworthy DSLR with its ultimate durability with heat-, weather- and dust-resistant performance – ready to raise the bar and take your photography to a whole new level.
Experience a new kind of efficiency with the image confirmation/selection workflow for simultaneous recording with the D6. Utilising two designated slots, users can easily sort and playback shots they’ve taken on the go. Simultaneously capture large JPEG images for editing, or smaller JPEG images and enjoy faster transfers with dual-card slots, maximising your workflow efficiency. Reduce your transfer time even further with flick operation, a function that allows you to access your frequently used and preferred settings with a flick of a switch. Building upon the D5, enjoy the same great operability and ergonomics, along with an industry-standard Kensington security slot for greater peace of mind while out on a shoot.
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.
Pro-grade weather sealing.
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.
The most well-connected Nikon flagship camera ever.
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)
Style-defining creative filters.
The D6 includes 20 unique Creative Picture Controls, all of which can be previewed in real-time and applied to both photos and videos. Spend more time in the field focusing on being creative and less time post-processing.
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.
