"Captivating imaging power, astonishing speed, dazzling low light performance and extreme durability-all paired with the most powerful AF in Nikon's history". Its newly developed AF engine is quicker than ever. When the D5 had a 153-point AF system with regular and cross-type points, the new camera features a 105-point configuration consisting exclusively of more precise cross-type sensors. With a magnesium alloy camera body and extensively weather-sealed design, the D6 is as tough as the professionals who use it, ready to take on the harshest shooting conditions. The autofocus system is also new: The 105 points are selectable and cross-type, resulting in "AF coverage that is approximately 1.6x denser than that of the D5".
- 17 custom Group Area AF choices. An improved scene recognition system for next-level subject acquisition. One can take advantage of "Wide" selection in single-point AF and dynamic-area AF modes to avoid focusing on the background. The burst shooting is boosted to 14 fps (an increase from 12 fps on the D5) and has a mechanical shutter and 10.5 fps with the muted shooting electronic shutter available in the live view mode.
At its core, the D6 makes use of the identical 20.8MP decision full-frame CMOS sensor as its predecessor that maxes out on the identical 4K/30p when taking pictures video.
Unparalleled Performance: The new EXPEED 6 engine's superior image-processing capabilities combined with the vast amount of information provided by the new dedicated AF engine drives high-level performance in any situation.
Other elements of the new DSLR worth mentioning include the ability to record in 4K UHD, along with a native ISO range of 100 to 102 400. Fast in-camera connection: Native Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System.

Tiger Woods shoots 69 at Riviera, gives Kobe Bryant tribute
Woods is one of several golfers in this week's field paying tribute to Bryant. Woods hit his first shot 304 yards into the right side of the fairway.
It supports the same 1000BASE-T Ethernet standard as the D5, with an approximate 15% increase in transmission speed.
In-camera connectivity is provided by Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth, with built-in Global Positioning System for good measure. Key ports are easily accessible, even when shooting with a wireless transmitter.
While Nikon develops its new flagship camera, it seems that it has given more importance to photography than video.
As for video capture, the camera offers up to 16:9 4K 30p video recordings with focus peaking and MP4 format support. "But you can control the D6, and this DSLR will deliver incredible shots of defining moments - without fail", claimed Nikon UK's Robert Harmon.
As expected the Nikon D6 does not come cheap, with the body retailing for $6 499 (~R95 864) in the States when it is expected to arrive in April.We do not have confirmed local pricing or availability, but we have seen the D6 up for pre-order (no price) on sites like Outdoorphoto.
