From hard news to international sports, the D6 answers the demands of professionals who need the ultimate combination of speed and accuracy. With Nikon’s most powerful AF system yet and fast, real-time image transfer, this full-frame DSLR will deliver incredible shots of defining moments. Without fail.
Tenacious focusing performance
How do you cover it all? A dedicated AF engine that’s faster than ever before. An arrangement of 105 all-selectable cross-type sensors with 1.6x higher density coverage than the D5. Group-Area AF with more custom settings for unparalleled tracking. An improved scene recognition system for next-level subject acquisition. The D6 gives you more ways to anticipate and catch the action than ever before.
Nail the winning shot
An increased range of selectable Group-Area AF patterns let you optimize your AF setup for any job. Avoid fixed obstacles, such as tennis nets, in your line of sight and nail more clean shots of the action.
Prioritise the eyes
The D6 is the first DSLR to let you prioritise focusing on your subject’s eyes when using Auto-Area AF or 3D tracking. Combined with the broader, high-density coverage, you’ll catch that look of determination.
Anticipate the action
With the D6, you can define the focus starting point when shooting in Auto-Area AF. Information from all 105 focus points is used to acquire and track your subject: you’re free to concentrate on the framing.
Excel in any light
Tracking is phenomenally precise, even under the toughest lighting conditions imaginable. AF sensitivity down to -4.5 EV at the central focus point, and -4 EV at all other points, lets you follow the action into the night.
Follow the action in real time, even when shooting at high frame rates with a long lens. The 0.72x optical viewfinder with OLED elements lets you attain pin-sharp subject confirmation, with no delay.
Roll and pitch indicators display in the viewfinder.
Unpredictability is nothing when you can adapt to any situation quickly and seamlessly. Pre-programed recall settings now include those for white balance, AF patterns, and AF lock-on.
Versatile card slots
You can simultaneously record JPEG+ and JPEG images to the dual slots, which accept CFexpress or XQD cards. Easily allocate small or medium JPEGs to the secondary card slot ready for faster image transfer.
Adapt to any venue
Higher-resolution displays offer improved visibility and readability. Ergonomic improvements free up space and keep key ports easily accessible, even when shooting with a wireless transmitter attached.
The D6 is also compatible with trusted Kensington locks, so you can keep your cameras secure when working with multiple set-ups.
