New rumours suggest the Nikon D6 release date could come as soon as February 2020 and feature a number of specifications inherited from the mirrorless Z system.
Chief among the Nikon D6 specifications is said to be built-in sensor stabilisation, which Nikon Rumors says will be an enhanced version of that in the Z-series cameras.
Inside the Nikon D6 will allegedly be a 24-megapixel full-frame sensor, which is capable of recording 4K video at 60fps.
Nikon Rumors reaffirms that the D6 will not be a hybrid camera, but rather an enhanced DSLR that offers some of the better features of mirrorless systems, such as IBIS, silent shooting and enhanced video capabilities.
Nikon D6 specs are said to include:
- Improved dynamic range
- Improved/better AF system but probably with the same number of AF points
- Advanced video features with RAW recording (not sure if external or internal)
- Longer manual exposure times (like in the Nikon D810A): from 1/8000 – 120 seconds (up from 30 seconds)
- Dual CFExpress memory card slots
- .76-78x 100% viewfinder
- New Expeed dual processors
- Built-in Wi-Fi
- 3.2 million dots touchscreen
- Improved silent shooting modes
- More customisation options
