The autofocus system boasts 105 all-selectable cross-type sensors, with AF sensitivity down to -4.5 EV at the central focus point and -4 EV at all other points. "The Nikon D6 will redefine the way you work".

The Nikon D6 is Nikon's flagship DSLR, but it's built for speed above all else, plus durability, reliability and handling, especially with Nikon's high-power super-telephoto lenses. It has a 20.8-megapixel full frame sensor with fewer megapixels than even a basic DSLR or mirrorless camera, yet comes with a price tag ten times higher.

Group AF now helps as much as 17 customized focus level preparations that customers can pre-set relying on the topic they're capturing, and one thing known as "expanded focus detection vary" will increase the detection space for single-level and dynamic space AF so you possibly can nonetheless nail focus even when your topic drifts your focus level outdoors. "The rapid movements of athletes can be beautifully captured by its quick reactions, without hesitation or interruption in the crucial moments", said John Young, general manager of marketing for Nikon Australia.

With a magnesium alloy camera body and extensively weather-sealed design, the D6 is as tough as the professionals who use it, ready to take on the harshest shooting conditions. The D6 is also compatible with Nikon's line of creative Speedlights, offering extra creative freedom to enhance natural light and add artistry and drama to any scene.

An Expeed 6 image processor gives the D6 the ability to continuously shoot at up to 14 fps with full auto exposure and AF tracking, along with a burst speed of 10.5 fps in Silent Photography mode (also available with tracking).

When it comes to capturing video, the D6 is limited to a 4K shooting at 30 fps. ISO ranges from 100 - 102,400, extendable to ISO 3,280,000 and down to 50. Professional photographers also need high-speed connectivity to get their images back to the picture desk before their rivals, and the D6 incorporates Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wired 1000BASE-T LAN support, and Nikon says the D6 brings approximately 15 % faster communication than the previous Nikon D5.

Besides that, the new Nikon pro DSLR offers built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System support, as well as dual XQD or CFExpress card slots.

Nikon's flagship DSLR series has a long and enviable heritage, having been the choice of countless professional news shooters and sports photographers, the all-new D6 will be a welcome addition to the imaging giant's range. The D6 is arriving in April of 2020, just in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games, at a suggested retail price of $6,500.
