Nikon Starts Designing D6 DSLR Camera, Launched This Year?

TEKNOKU.meĀ – After spawning a D5 series camera in early 2016, Nikon is now preparing its successor DSLR called the D6. The camera development was officially announced by the Japanese manufacturer this week.

Nikon promises the D6 will be the “most sophisticated digital SLR” it has ever made. The Japanese company also published photos of the Nikon D6 as seen above.

Unfortunately, besides the claims and photos, nothing else was announced by Nikon regarding the D6. The specifications of the flagship class DSLR camera with a full-frame sensor (FX) are also still unclear.

What is clear, as the top product in the range of Nikon DSLR cameras, the “single-digit” D series from D1 output 1999 to D5 in 2016 is always equipped with the latest features from Nikon.

Like Canon’s 1D series, Nikon’s single-digit D camera line is designed for professionals who need the toughest, fastest, most reliable and highest-quality camera. The body is square because it contains an integrated vertical grip.

Nikon D6 is also likely to be launched this year, judging from the next statement from Nikon, which accompanies the announcement of D6 development.

“Nikon released the D1 digital SLR camera in 1999, so 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the single-digit D series camera,” Nikon said.

The previous camera, D5, was officially launched in just two months after the announcement of its development. Likewise with D4S.

In addition to the D6 DSLR camera, Nikon also announced the development of a new telephoto lens called the AF-S Nikkor 120-300 mm f / 2.8 SR VR.

“This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Nikon F-mount (lens). Nikkor 120-300 mm f / 2.8 SR VR AF-S lenses will provide more support for photographers in fields such as sports, “Nikon said.
