Thx Paco ;)

During the shooting sessions I used the Bluetooth low energy communication feature to transmit 1’620 x 1080 px 1.1 MB pictures to the SnapBridge smartphone application.  The resolution of these pictures is sufficient to be dispatched to social media. To be more precise, received pictures by SnapBridge are shared with Lr Mobile, eventually edited, and then broadcasted.

The original NEF pictures are then further processed, once in the media room, for publication and printing.

Stunning photos! This is what the D6 is made for.

Thanks  :). This the tool I need.

Some unissued ones:

And some nice new features:


Nikon D6
new menus


Nikon D6 - Kensington lock
and a Kensington lock, useful for installing remote cameras (not my case) or unattended equipment in press rooms

Ill guess gps and lock are very practical for you, not a gizmo.

It amazes me how few people seem to use these on laptops costing 10% of your D6.
This seems both practical and sensible design by Nikon (if you can find a suitable anchor point)

GPS is a godsend; before I had to start (or finish) with a smartphone picture to pin the position; as the images end in the same Lr Album, there was a way to identify the location for the other pictures, as long as you don’t omit / forget to take the smartphone picture ...

With regard to the lock, I must admit that I haven’t used it, for the time being. There is very little people in the press room, in connection with COVID-19. Moreover, we have all lockers and we know about each person.

Not new, but I started to make voice notes, quite helpful. Before I used the « mike » button to attribute stars, but with the image « flick down or up » feature, I have now attributed a star rating there.

Yeah, same conclusion. Only a very few cable-lock their laptop. The only thing I really care on computer stuff is my hard disk, which is always locked up during press room vacancies.

If you're not careful, some here will get the idea that you like the new D6.  ;)

Hi Carl. Yes, I have the temerity, or should I say, recklessness, to admit that I adore this camera. For what I’m doing, it’s perfect. The poor D5 with whom I shared four years of my photographic life feels completely abandoned  ;D

Good that I never bought the poor D5 and will be leap-frogging from D4S to D6 ;-)

I watched Steve Perry's D6 review on youtube.

There have been some claims that the D6 burst depth was slightly reduced from the D5. However, Perry reports D6 can do up to 200 shots at 12 fps in 14-bit mode on both CFexpress and XQD cards, so that is similar to D5. At 14 fps 14-bit mode it does 171 shots on CFe and 129 shots on XQD. Large enough for any practical use I guess. ;)

He mentions that viewfinder blackout in the D6 is reduced in high-speed continuous shooting.

He talks about the customisation in depth. Nice improvements.

Christian,

Outstanding set of photos.  I especially like the compositions with the cars above the blue and/or red striped foregrounds.  Great panning, knowing the speeds involved.  Cheers,  John

Thank you John   :) I like to play with the red and blue abrasive strips of the Paul Ricard circuit. These strips replace the traditional gravel traps encountered on other circuits. What’s noteworthy are the front and ¾ views at very high speeds, particularly difficult for AF systems

Here some more, although not with the D6.
