Nikon D6: Setting new standards for autofocus performance

Nikon Unveils the D6 with the 'Most Powerful AF System in Nikon History'

First impressions are that Nikon have focussed their efforts on producing a body that that delivers in autofocus speed and accuracy above all else. Speaking of video, it's capped at 4K/30p recording, the same as the D5, but now comes with focus peaking. You can choose the AF starting point in Auto Area AF mode and prioritise eye AF in this and the 3D tracking modes.

It will be available from April, priced from $6,499.99 / £6,299.99.

"The D6 is purpose-built and inspired by the valuable feedback of professional users", said Jay Vannatter, Executive Vice President of Nikon Inc. If that won't do, you can capture 8-megapixel stills at 30 fps and 2-megapixel stills at 60 fps. It also features Evolved Auto area AF that automatically detects and achieves focus based on information from all focus points. An arrangement of 105 all-selectable cross-type sensors with 1.6x higher density coverage than the D5 takes precision to the next level, with market-leading tracking performance and next-level subject acquisition. A new feature, also called "extended focus detection range", increases the AF detection area for a single point or a moving area.


While Nikon develops its new flagship camera, it seems that it has given more importance to photography than video. It also improved low-light autofocus capability down to -4.5 EV for the center point, or -4 EV for the other points. It has a RGB sensor of 180k pixels which is compatible with the EXPEED 6 image processing engine.

The maximum burst rate was increased from 12fps to 14fps with maximum AF / AE tracking. The special thing about Nikon D6 is that it has been launched with the most advanced autofocus system ever. The standard native ISO range of the camera ranges from 100 to 102,400. Additionally, ISO is expandable up to 3.2 million, giving photographers the ability to truly conquer the dark. There is nothing better than digital camera DSLR for any user. For the ones who have to transfer images at the shortest turnaround time, there is the 1000BASE_T Ethernet port that is 15% faster in comparison to the D5.

Absolute Reliability: Nikon's flagship cameras remain trusted in the industry and have been proven on the sidelines, in the studio and even in outer space. The magnesium alloy body of the D6 is entirely weather-sealed, thus a robust tool for the professionals to use. The camera offers long-lasting battery life, delivering the safety net and energy-saving performance that pros need on daylong outings.

And, as we expected, there are now two card slots on the D6 that support XQD and CFExpress cards. You can find out more at Nikon, and see official sample images below. No matter the job, the client or the location, there's a NIKKOR lens, from the ultra-wide to the super-telephoto.
