If you wanted an in-depth and extensive review of how well the Nikon D6 performs for wildlife photography, then you’re in for a treat. This 44-minute wildlife-focused review comes courtesy of wildlife photographer Steve Perry over at the Backcountry Gallery, and it covers just about everything you could ever want to know about the D6 and how it performs for this task.
Since the announcement of the new Nikon D6, it’s been a long wait till the camera was available in the market. Here in Singapore, we finally received the first batch of Nikon D6. I was very fortunate to be invited by Nikon Singapore to have a hands-on experience with the new camera.
Like the predecessor D5, the D6 is nothing short of the ruggedness of what a professional needs. There are no doubts that the D6 will continue the legacy to produce high-quality images under any challenging situation.
Tamron has issued a statement about the compatibility of some of its lenses with the Nikon D6 DSLR. According to the press release, only a couple of lenses are currently known to be affected, although it’s worth pointing out that they don’t say mention that their other lenses have all been tested as fully working. So, there is potential for this list to expand.
It feels like forever since Nikon announced their newest flagship DSLR; the Nikon D6. It’s actually only been three months, but that hasn’t stopped some people getting anxious. Recently, customers were being told that the D6 would start shipping right about now, but now Nikon has officially come out to announce that the Nikon D6 will start shipping on May 21st.
The development of the Nikon D6 was announced six months ago, and we were hoping to finally see it at The Photography Show in Birmingham this March. However, we’ll have to wait a bit longer. According to the latest news, the Nikon D6 is being delayed and it won’t be released before May current year. And the reason is, once again, the coronavirus outbreak.
The Nikon D6, Nikon’s newest flagship DSLR, has now officially been announced. While not all of the rumours were true, it’s an impressive looking camera. It has a brand new 105-point all cross-type autofocus system, ISO from 100 to an impressive 102400, built-in GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and Gigabit Ethernet, dual CFexpress slots, and more.
One of the most notable features, however, is that it appears to have some form of Eye AF implementation when shooting in regular optical mode through the viewfinder. Nikon says that “the D6 is the first DSLR to let you prioritise focusing on your subject’s eyes when using Auto-Area AF or 3D tracking”.
Even though there’s been no official announcement on the specs for the Nikon D6 (it’s expected at some point this month), Digital Camera World reports that the Nikon D6 will be on show in the UK during The Photography Show taking place on the 14-17th March at the Birmingham NEC in England.
They say that Nikon has announced this, but I haven’t been able to find a press release. But DCW is owned by Future Plc., which is the same company that runs The Photography Show. So, if anybody would know if this was true or not, it’s them!
Since the initial and somewhat vague “development announcement” in September, Nikon has remained pretty tight-lipped about the impending Nikon D6. They haven’t even said when they’re announcing it, yet, although all indicators pointed towards a date in early 2020, following on from the January 6th announcement dates in 2012 and 2016 for the D4 and D5 respectively.
But it seems the announcement may come in a tad later, according to a report on Nikon Rumors. They say they’ve been hearing February 12th, 2020 as a potential announcement date more than once, although it could be for an internal presentation rather than a public announcement. But they do have an updated list of rumoured specs, too.
Nikon has today officially announced the new Nikon D6 flagship DSLR. Well, they’ve announced the development of it, anyway. That’s pretty much all they’ve announced, though. There are no specs or details available other than the name and that it’ll be an FX-format full-frame DSLR.
But what’s possibly even more interesting is that they’ve also announced a new long f/2.8 zoom lens aimed at sports photographers, too. The AF-S Nikkor 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR is coming.
