Never lose a moment again with the most powerful AF in Nikon's history
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. Perfect for sports photographers and photojournalists this system delivers superior focus acquisition through a new algorithm in the AF sensor and a new AF engine with Multi-CAM37K autofocus sensor module, giving you more coverage through a higher-density triple-sensor arrangement. This greatly reduces non-AF covered areas, making it 1.6x more accurate than the D5.
Enjoy a continuous shooting speed of approximately of 14 fps with AF/AE, driven by the newly developed mirror driving mechanism. Subject detection and tracking performance, such as 3D-tracking and auto-area AF, are also further enhanced with the new 180K-pixel RGB sensor and EXPEED 6 image-processing engine.The combination of both technologies also allows for focus priority on a subject’s eye when using auto-area AF or 3D tracking. A ‘Wide’ option also enables you to focus on your intended subject, even when just pointing the lens roughly in the same area – perfect for unexpected situations when you need quick snaps. Evolved Auto area AF, automatically detects and achieves focus based on information from all focus points which allows you to set the focus point on your desired subject, making it easier than ever to track. Enjoy a wide range of custom settings for grouping AF points.
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.
Turbo-charged by EXPEED 6.
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, color reproduction and more.
Fast and reliable 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.
Astounding 60 fps stills in video mode.
The D6 is also 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 depending if full hd or 4K UHD is selected for image quality.
Note: AF is locked on the first frame while AE tracks in this mode.
Silent when discretion counts.
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.
Note: AF is locked on the first frame while AE tracks. Rolling shutter distortion may occur.
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.
Quality you can depend on.
More durable than ever, the D6 is heat-resistant, weather-resistant and dust-resistant, making it a robust companion. Similarly, its robust shutter can easily achieve over 500,000 shutter releases.
Built tough for real-world use
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.
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.
Easily change camera settings in the dark with top and rear LCD control panels and buttons that illuminate with the flick of a lever.
The D6 has a total of 14 buttons that can be personalized with up to 46 different functions for quick, intuitive access to your favorite settings.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The most well-connected Nikon flagship camera ever is the professional's choice.
Time is of the essence. Improve your work flow with faster image transfers. Built-in Wi-Fi and WT-6 transmitters ensure quicker and more versatile methods of uploading your images, along with a port for Wired LAN, which supports 1000BASE-T standard and achieves approx. 15% faster communication. RAW image transfers to a smart device are also made possible through SnapBridge, which is an added convenience when you need to share images with editors and clients on the go. Another added benefit is priority image upload, a feature that allows you to select and send handpicked images rapidly through wired LAN and WT-6/A/B/C, making it perfect for time sensitive jobs, such as real-time photojournalism. This makes the D6 a truly great addition to any professional’s arsenal.
Kensington Anti-Theft Lock compatible.
The D6 features a pro-grade Kensington Security Slot to keep your camera safe and prevent theft in remote shooting situations.
Global support for NPS professionals.
Nikon Professional Services (NPS) offers dependable service and dedicated support to pros that make their living from the images they capture with Nikon products. NPS keeps its members shooting with certainty, ease and a feeling of security that comes with dedicated support.
Long, dependable battery life.
The D6 is designed to maximize energy efficiency. Its EN-EL18c Rechargeable Li-ion Battery enables up to approximately 3,580 shots per charge in single-frame release mode*, or approximately 8,670 shots in continuous-release mode**, and filming for approximately 105 min*. The D6 also uses an included universal USB Type C cable (SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen) for connection to a computer.
*Based on CIPA Standards.
**Under Nikon’s own test conditions.
The D6 is outfitted with the same deep, secure grip and button layout as the D5 for comfortable, ergonomic shooting on long assignments. While most of its operating systems are unchanged, the D6 offers smoother handling and performance in response to feedback from pros in the field.
