20.8 Megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor
The Nikon D6 DSLR camera features a newly designed full-frame format CMOS sensor. The sensor features a high resolution of 20.8 megapixels, allowing you to photograph quality images wherever you go and will enable you to create large prints, even after cropping.
Colossal ISO 50 - 3280000 range
The Nikon D6 features a large native ISO range of 100-102400, and a simply colossal extended light-sensitivity of over 3 million - ISO 3280000. The extreme light sensitivity will enable capturing images/videos in the most extreme low light conditions such as indoor sports and night events, and still achieving sharp and in focus images.
14-bit lossless RAW file recording
By capturing RAW files in 14-bit, videographers will be able to further push post processing for even more accurate colours, a wider dynamic range and improved noise reduction which is great for professional videographers.
EXPEED 6 image-processing engine
Incorporating Nikon's new EXPEED 6 engine features faster processors, for more memory and improved algorithms to produce colour accurate images, reduce image noise, and to create beautiful UHD 4K video.
Dedicated AF processor
The D6 is equipped with a dedicated AF engine chip, capable of rapid calculations. Between this engine and the sequence control microcomputer, several tasks are handled in parallel, speeding up autofocus calculations and control. The result is superior AF response, which assists photographers in scenes such as tracking. The AF engine also permits a new AF algorithm to be employed, which efficiently coordinates a range of operations, including advanced subject detection and detailed scene analysis. This enables precise AF tracking of moving subjects during approx. 14-fps continuous shooting.
15 autofocus points for f/8 (teleconverter) setups
Fifteen focus points, including nine selectable points, are available for lens setups slower than f/5.6 and equal to or faster than f/8. This will enable autofocus when using a select lens and teleconverter combinations.
14-fps continuous shooting with full-time AF/AE up to 200 frames
The D6's amazing processing power and speed enables photographers to shoot with no loss of speed or confidence. The advanced technology used in the camera delivers stable high-speed continuous shooting at a frame rate of up 14 fps with full-time autofocus and auto exposure at any image quality or sensitivity, including Hi 5 (ISO 3280000) and 14-bit RAW up to 200 frames.
Dual CFexpress & XQD Slots
This model of the Nikon D6 features dual CFexpress and XQD memory card slots. CFexpress and XQD is one of the fastest portable storage solutions currently available and features speeds up to 1700MB/s when utilising CFexpress cards.
Internal 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) video recording
The Nikon D6 is further future proofed by incorporating Ultra HD 4K video recording. 4K video recording offers high-resolution quality and features 4 times more pixels than Full HD. The camera records 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) 30p/25p/24p videos in a 1.5x crop, saving the data onto in-camera memory cards. ISO range stays unchanged to make ISO 3280000 available in 4K recording.
Full HD and HD is also available and can be recorded in full frame format at 60 frames per second.
Uncompressed 4K HDMI output
An uncompressed 4K frame-by-frame live feed can be directly transferred to an external display or recorder simultaneously.
Dot-by-dot readout means that information from every pixel on the image sensor is recorded to produce video with less in-camera processing, delivering detail-rich, high-resolution videos. Combining this method and EXPEED 5’s uniquely advanced video processing, while taking advantage of the 4K UHD’s high resolution, the D6 produces stunning quality videos.
Flat picture control
Flat picture control records as much image information as possible to enable more control in post-production. With more control you can produce high-resolution videos that faithfully reflect your creative intentions in a relatively simple process.
Movie exposure compensation
When shooting a scene with drastic exposure changes, the D6 will render everything with gradual transitions via a delicate auto exposure control dedicated to movie recording. Even at high ISO settings, the camera reproduces the changes naturally while maintaining rich tonal gradation and details.
Record time lapse movies in-camera
The Nikon D6 DSLR allows you to produce time-lapse movies easily, and all inside the camera. This feature is compatible with any frame size/frame rate or movie quality, including 4K UHD/30p. What’s more, the exposure smoothing function is also available. This efficiently reduces unwanted flicker effects in a time-lapse movie where the brightness changes widely, such as at dawn or dusk, by automatically reducing the subtle exposure variance of each frame in A and other auto modes. The exposure smoothing function is also available in interval timer photography.
Comprehensive sound control
Internal or external microphone sensitivity levels can be adjusted in 20 increments while recording, and sound can be monitored with external headphones. The frequency response function also enables you to choose from a range of audio recording presets including wide, vocal and wind reduction.
2359k-dot 3.2 inch touchscreen LCD
Built-in to the Nikon D6 is a rear 3.2" LCD Touchscreen that offers users a smoother workflow with an cutting-edge touchscreen monitor that can even respond to operation wearing gloves, enabling quick image confirmation via rapid scrolling through thousands of pictures or getting pin-point accurate focus while zooming in live-view.
Refined hand grip
The D6 camera body from Nikon features an ergonomic grip that's been refined for greater support, enhanced handling for extended periods of time regardless of hand size.
The D6’s buttons features illumination to provides enhanced visibility of the camera controls when photographing in dim lighting conditions.
Multiple exposure modes
The Nikon D6's multiple exposure modes combine up to 10 frames to create a single picture. The exposures are joined by either “Lighten” or “Darken" modes. With “Lighten” mode, the camera compares pixels in each exposure and uses the brightest. Conversely, the “Darken” option employs the darkest.
Electronic front-curtain shutter
An electronic front curtain reduces internal mechanical vibration/movement for sharper pictures.
The D6's shutter has been tested for 400,000 cycles with the shutter unit actually loaded into a fully assembled camera. It also features a self-diagnostic shutter monitor, which automatically detects and minimizes the difference between the designated shutter speed and the actual speed, ensuring maximum precision.
Rugged body with anti-dust and weather sealing
The D6 employs a magnesium alloy body to give it a strong and durable body while being lightweight. The camera body's joined sections are also sealed to ensure high resistance to dust and bad weather, letting you shoot with the utmost confidence, even in inclement conditions.
Long battery life
The D6 utilises Nikon's new EN-EL18c rechargeable Li-ion battery, allowing you to photograph up to 3580 pictures per charge in single-frame release mode.
