After much anticipation and plenty of guesswork as to what Nikon would deliver with the latest iteration of their flagship DSLR series, the waiting is over with the arrival of the mighty D6; Nikon's new powerhouse full-frame FX-Format DSLR.
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). "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.
In addition, Nikon says the D6 uses a "triple-sensor arrangement" for every one of those 105 focus points to achieve coverage that's "approximately 1.6x denser" than the D5.

Interestingly, the total number of AF points has gone down from 153 to 105, but, all of these are now selectable and all are the more accurate cross-type.
While Nikon develops its new flagship camera, it seems that it has given more importance to photography than video. The new system offers an increased range of selectable Group-Area AF patterns, another Nikon innovation, to allow detailed optimisation for different subjects and users.
Nikon developed the Nikon D6, which it developed for professional use, with a durable body. The special thing about Nikon D6 is that it has been launched with the most advanced autofocus system ever. This means the camera will be able to capture images in near-darkness, aided by improved autofocus sensitivity, which can now work in light levels as low as -4.5EV.More news: Google gets in on the emoji mashup madness by launching 'Emoji Kitchen'
If you really want to grab as many stills as you can in the shortest possible time, you could opt to use movie Live View and sacrifice image quality for speed.
The Nikon D6 will offer an ISO range of 100-102400 in standard mode, and ISO 50-3,280,000 in expanded mode. Gigabit wired LAN support is also available (1000BASE-T) for faster transfer speeds.
The D6 also employs a USB-Type C connector for faster direct-to-PC file transfer rates than the D5.More news: UK Treasury chief quits as Johnson shakes up Cabinet
Lastly, within the sturdiness class, the digital camera is made to the identical skilled commonplace because of the D5 earlier than it, which includes a magnesium alloy physique that's "extensively climate-sealed" to guard you from parts.
Nikon has additionally added a bunch of workflow enhancements for the professionals. It will go on sale around April 2020, carrying a steep price tag of £6,299 in the United Kingdom, while pricing for the USA and Australia is yet to be confirmed.More news: 5G iPhone and iPad Pro arriving in the fall
