    D6, the Best Nikon DSLR ever for WildLife Photography

    Posted by Hai Ta on June 13, 2021

    I have been a Nikon user shooting birds photography since 2008, using D700, D3s, D4, D4s, D5 and D6. My primary lenses: 300f4, 500f4G, 300 f4 pf, 600 mm f4G and 800mm f5.6 E.Life began getting better with D3s and 600 mm f4G and much better with D4s back then. D5 was a real changer and I was in paradise shooting birds with better success rate, better dynamic range for picture quality. I thought it was the limit but No! D6 focusing and dynamic range are even better, its menu system also gives me more options, flexibility for shooting birds in flight. Nowadays I travel with my D6 connected to the 800mm lens, shooting on tripod; and a D5 on 500 f4 shooting handheld.My only wish now is Nikon coming out with Z9, much lighter and even better focusing and frame rates that would help me continue my hobby in my retirement age. Thank you Nikon

    My Nikon D6 Is Simply An Amazing Camera

    Posted by Thomas Kachelmeyer on May 17, 2021

    My main focus is wildlife photography. I push the limits in all types of habitat and weather conditions. The primary lens I use is NIKKOR 600mm f/4E FL ED along with NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED and NIKKOR 300mm F/2.8G ED VR II. When I purchased my D4s, I thought I had gone to heaven for the speed, low light conditions, dynamic range, AF, and how great it felt in my hand. But, as with any professional situation, you are always looking for ways to improve your results, so I ended up purchasing a D5 which in itself is a great camera. I kept my D4s as a secondary body. When news of the D6 started to flow out, I analyzed all the good and bad reviews, looking for crucial improvements that I could take advantage of, even if there were minor improvements. From my perspective, if I can see an ROI of 2 or 3 amazing shots per trip by upgrading to this camera, that can make a huge difference in delivering the result my clients expect. It was a tough decision, but I sold my D4s and purchased the D6 in August 2020. I can't tell you how pleased I am with the performance of my D6 in all kinds of weather conditions, especially paired up with my NIKKOR 600mm f/4. It's all those key improvements that add up to make this a tremendous camera. My camera bag always has my D850 and D5 with me, but my D6 is my go-to camera.Just a fantastic Camera, you will not be disappointed! Tom :)

    D6 gives me confidence during important photoshoots

    Posted by Phillip Jones on May 14, 2021

    I purchased the D6 for professional event work, adventure magazine work and wildlife. However, I found it to be an excellent landscape camera as I recently spent 10 days exploring southern Utah. I appreciate the built-in GPS for automatic geo-tagging. Photo results were stunning: colors, dynamic range, and sharpness with Nikon lenses. The camera is rugged. Button placement and responsiveness makes me confident when using this camera for professional work. I shoot high profile public figures at major events and I cannot afford to have a camera that hesitates or fails. This D6 is by far my favorite Nikon. I even used it for astrophotography.

    The D6 is all they say it is and more!

    Posted by Robert Allen on May 13, 2021

    I have used Nikon ever since buying the D50 in 2005 and my purchases have progressed up the chain since. I currently have the full suite of current Nikon DSLRs (610,780, and 850), and now, the D6. I have owned a few DSLR flagships: The D3s, 4s, 5 and now the D6. The D6 will not disappoint. It's everything the brochure says it is: Amazing AF, excellent color rendition, accurate white balance, and solid build quality. I highly recommend the Nikon D6, and not just for sports and action but other areas as well such as portraiture, food, and general events.

    Best Autofocus of Any Nikon To Date

    Posted by Rob Mathewson on May 13, 2021

    Yes, it's sturdy and reliable. It's the most connected Nikon thus far. It performs in low light where lesser cameras do not. The thing that impresses me most about the D6, however, is its' autofocus capability. I shoot a lot of wildlife; birds in flight in particular. When I pair the D6 with the 800mm f/5.6 Nikkor, focus lock is quick and tenacious. 3-D Tracking is my AF-area mode of choice. Using Continuous-servo AF (AF-C), I'm able to lock on to a bird and reliably hold focus, even when the bird flies directly toward me. As I handhold most of my shots, this is even more impressive to me. When shooting sports, the AF locks and tracks focus on a selected player even when that player momentarily weaves through a crowd. I own the D810, D850, Z7, and D5. I believe the D6 is superior to them all as far as autofocus is concerned. Keep up the good work, Nikon.

    Posted by James May on May 13, 2021

    Love the camera and the low light performance is great. I took my Nikon D6 and my Nikon 200-500 F5.6 lens to Africa. This photo was taken with it. Taken 14,000 photos on my Safari.The Battery life is great I didn't have to charge it until after the 3 days.

    D6 is the king till the Z9 arrives

    Posted by Peter Allinson on May 13, 2021

    Perfect DSLR, wish they come out with the z9 already. my z7II is nowhere as fast focusing as the d6 and does not track as well as the D6. Yes I am moving to mirrorless. Perhaps nikon can come up with a mirrorless lens to F mount body like the FTZ.

    Best Nikon Professional Body Yet.

    Posted by Kimberly Teske on May 13, 2021

    I've been a professional Nikon user for 25 years; I shoot commercial, sports, and portraiture. My D6 never lets me down. It's a beast and a workhorse but this is why I only buy Nikon professional models. I've used the D1x, D2xs, D3s and D4s. This is the best yet. Please continue to support your professional photographers with these first rate cameras!!

    Superlative Camera

    Posted by John Lanna on May 13, 2021

    Fantastic camera. So great that I can send full JPEGImages to my Iphone in seconds and the 14 FPS capability with my Nikon 500mm FL let’s me capture images that I would have missed before. The tremendous number of settings available on this camera is just remarkable and it’s enhanced ability to focus onto a moving subject is incredible. This is Nikons finest.
