Overview

D6
Decisive power. Faster workflow. Absolute reliability.

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.

Key Features:

  • FX Format
  • 20.8 Megapixels
  • 14 FPS Continuous Shooting
  • 100-102,400 ISO Expandable to 3,280,000
  • 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 at 30/25/24p


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. A reimagined focus point layout reduces non-AF-sensitive areas with a triple sensor arrangement for each individual focus point resulting in 1.6x more AF coverage, even with moving subjects in high speed shooting modes.


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, colour reproduction and more.


 


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.

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.

* When using E-type lenses, in CH mode and at shutter speed 1/250 second or faster.
 

 

Astounding 60 fps stills in video mode

While the D6's remarkable 14 fps speed may be more than enough for most action photography, the D6 is 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** for revealing minute differences during critical moments of action.

*With Full HD selected for image quality.
**With 4K UHD 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.*

*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.

Real-world dependability

Built tough.

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. The shutter unit has been tested for 400,000 cycles.

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.

Illuminated controls.

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 most well-connected Nikon flagship camera ever.

Transfer photos and videos, even RAW images, wirelessly to a smart device via the SnapBridge app over the D6's built-in Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth.
Wired LAN supports the highly acclaimed 1000BASE-T standard with 15% faster transfer speeds than the D5.
In studio, wireless LAN connections can be obtained with either the built-in dual band 2.4/5 GHz transmitter or with the faster, more reliable WT-6A/B/C Wireless Transmitter (optional).
 

Standardized metadata editing.

The D6 uses standard IPTC metadata, now compatible with XML, so popular, industry standard image-browsing software like Photo Mechanic® can be used to confirm and edit metadata.

Faster workflow

The ultimate shape shifter

On fast-paced assignments, being ready for every critically decisive moment is paramount.
With so many ways to customize settings and shortcuts, the D6 truly adapts to every workflow.

Instant access to presets

With recallable shooting functions, sports photographers can effortlessly switch between preset camera settings— great for events like track and field where dynamic-area AF may work best for some events while auto-area AF may be better for others.

Advanced customizations

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.

Intuitive i menu

The i button provides a shortcut to a wide selection of frequently used camera settings for speedy adjustments. The i menu can be customized to show the settings you use most—streamlining your workflow.

Save time by saving menu settings

Conveniently store and label up to four custom shooting combinations from the Custom Settings Menu and up to four from the Photo Shooting Menu for quick access in the i menu—a major time saver for rapidly-changing shooting environments.

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 & 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.

Clear, lag-free optical viewfinder

The brilliant optical viewfinder in the D6 was designed for clear, real-time visibility with a natural, stress-free viewing experience under various lighting conditions, even during long hours of shooting.

Built-in GPS

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.

Optimized for creativity

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).

*When activated in the custom settings menu.

Style-defining creative filters.

The D6 includes 20 unique Creative Picture Controls, all of which can be previewed in real-time and applied to both photos and videos. Spend more time in the field focusing on being creative and less time post-processing.

Multiple ways to create multiple exposures.

With the D6, surreal, expressive multiple exposure photography can be created traditionally while shooting consecutive photos or by combining any photo previously shot with the camera using the retouch menu.

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.

Impressive video capability.

The D6 is up to the challenge when video content is part of the assignment. Beautifully-detailed 16:9 4K Ultra HD (3,840 x 2,160) that benefits from the incredible resolving power of the D6's full frame CMOS sensor. 60p Full HD for exciting, over cranked action or smooth slow-motion in post. Plus, a host of helpful capture tools like focus peaking, zebra stripes, timecode and electronic VR.

Ultimate lighting control.

Make subjects stand out, enhance natural and available light and add artistry and drama to any scene with Speedlights engineered and optimized specifically for Nikon cameras.

Dependable, all-day shooting

Comfortable shooting

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.

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.
