The Nikon D6's 20.8MP sensor is the optimal balance between speed and resolution, enabling the Nikon D6 to crank out amazing 14fps stills bursts with deep detail and dynamic range. The ferocious AF system sticks to your subjects no matter how frantic the action, and with a native sensitivity that goes all the way up to ISO102,000 (expandable to ISO3.28 million!) it's a low light monster as well.
It's primarily a stills specialist, but the D6 also boasts 4K video up to 30p (though the AF isn't as robust as it is for photos), and it boasts all the connectivity you could ask for – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 1000BASE-T ethernet – so you can fire your files back to base no matter where you are.
