Decisive power. Faster workflow. Absolute reliability.
Like every Nikon flagship 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 customization 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.
105-point fully selectable, all cross-type sensor AF system, sports photographers will find the D6's 17 selectable group Area AF patterns indispensable.
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.
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.
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.
Advanced scene recognition for intelligent exposure.
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 white balance and more.
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
Button-free image annotation, transfer and more.
Inspired by pro feedback, images can be conveniently sent, protected or rated, voice memos can be added and images can be prioritized to skip the queue during large transfers by simply flicking upward or downward in full screen playback—especially useful when using the WT-6/A/B/C Wireless Transmitter.
Focus stacking made easy.
For images where focus throughout the entire composition is essential—product and jewelry photography, landscapes—Focus Shift Mode automatically takes a series of images while continuously adjusting the focus position (up to 300 shots).*
*Final image compositing requires third-party software.
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.
