According to the most recent reports out of Japan, Nikon is planning to announce the flagship Nikon D6 DSLR in less than a week! The official announcement of the D6—which is rumored to feature in-body image stabilization, better video, and more—is now expected on September 4th.
Previous rumors indicated that Nikon was going to announce their flagship full-frame DSLR sometime in October, but Nokishita is reporting that this date has now been moved up to September 4th:
This is almost certainly going to be a “development” announcement, as Nikon has done in the past with the D5 and the Z-Series mirrorless cameras, with an official debut “in late 2019 or early 2020” according to Nikon Rumors.
As for what we can expect from the D6, the latest rumored specs indicate that Nikon is packing the new flagship with an improved autofocus system, “better” video capabilities, dual CFExpress card slots, two new EXPEED processors, built-in WiFi, “excellent” silent shooting and, the most important rumor, in-body image stabilization.
No word on how many of these specs—if any–will be officially confirmed by the rumored announcement, but it sounds like we’ll know more next Wednesday. Stay tuned!
