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.
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.
Image quality that shines in any light
The stellar 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.
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.
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.
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.
Long exposures made easy. No remote necessary.
The unique possibilities of long exposure shooting opens up an incredible creative avenue to explore. With the D6, exposures longer than 30 seconds can be set right in the camera* without the need for a remote timer. In M mode, exposures longer than 30 seconds are selectable up to 900 seconds (60, 120, 180, 240, 300, 480, 600, 720, 900 are available).
