Nikon D6 sports dSLR

Introduction

  • Nikon announced its D6 update to their flagship sports dSLR cameras in Feb 2020 with expected availability April 2020
  • this announcement follows the release of the marginally cheaper but far better featured Canon 1DX Mark III which has more cross-type AF points, faster burst rate and far better video BUT perhaps the new Nikon AF system may be better - we will have to wait and see!

Specs

  • 20.8mp full frame sensor (same resolution as the Nikon D5 pro dSLR)
  • new Expeed 6 processor
  • up to 14fps burst shooting with 'E-type' lenses (those with electromagnetically controlled diaphragms)
  • in Live View, silent electronic burst rates of 10.5fps at 20.8mp, 30fps at 8mp, and 60fps at 2mp (does not match the 2016 Olympus OM-D E-M1 mark II as 60fps at 20mp and with minimal rolling shutter at that).
  • all-new autofocus system with reduced number of AF points down from 153 to 105, but now all are selectable and cross-type and and each uses a 'triple-sensor arrangement' and sensitive down to -4EV (centre point down to -4.5EV)
  • AF coverage is '1.6x denser than that of the D5' and with 15 of the central points being F/8 compatible
  • rear screen is 3.2“ 2.36mdot fixed touch screen
  • 4K 30p video and 1080HD 60p with focus peaking
  • no longer supports Compact Flash cards but has dual XQD / CFExpress card slots
  • gigabit ethernet, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS built-in
  • USB-Type C
  • CIPA battery life 3580 shots
