It is now confirmed that Nikon will announce the flagship Nikon D6 DSLR camera on September 4th, 2019. This would be a development announcement as the camera will be released in late 2019 or early 2020 as we’ve already reported earlier. The Z 24mm f/1.8 S lens could be also announced on that day.
Nikon D6 DSLR camera will feature 24-megapixel full frame image sensor, 4K video recording at 60p and built-in sensor stabilization. It could be the sensor found on the Nikon Z6, as it is already capable of 4K at up to 100 fps.
Beside these Nikon D6 specs below, the flagship DSLR will have better low ISO performance than the Nikon D5.
It seems that Nikon will make some announcements about “D6” on September 4.
