Nikon registered their new camera model N1823 with the Taiwan NCC agency – this is most likely the upcoming Nikon D6 DSLR. The description of the camera includes:

  • Wi-Fi (11a/b/g/n/ac)
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Battery: Nikon EN-EL18c (this specific battery is used for the Nikon D5, D4, and D4s cameras)

Here are the latest Nikon D6 rumored specifications based mainly on leaks from Asia:

  • 2oMP sensor, not 24MP as previous reported (still not 100% sure)
  • No IBIS (still not 100% sure)
  • 14 fps in normal shutter mode (the D5 could do 12 fps)
  • Improved/better AF system but probably with the same number of AF points
  • The Nikon D6 AF improvements are crucial and comparable to the Sony A9II
  • The D6 will have more features and customization options for various aspects of the camera and settings
  • Companion applications will also see improvements but they will most likely launch after the camera release
  • The D6 will definitely not be a “hybrid” camera, but rather a DSLR with some mirrorless features (better video, silent shooting for example)
  • 4K 60 video
  • Improved dynamic range
  • 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
  • Official announcement expected in mid-February (around February 12, 2020 ±1-2 days)
  • Update: one stop improved high ISO
