Want to see exactly what the new Nikon Df DSLR camera looks like in the flesh?
Check out our extensive hands-on gallery of photos of the Nikon Df DSLR camera, including both the silver and black versions, a side-by-side comparison with the F3 film SLR, and all the background slides from a presentation held by Nikon UK.
The Nikon Df is a retro full-frame DSLR camera, available in an all-black or chrome/black finish. The "f" in Df stands for "fusion", of the past and present. A mixture of classic design with modern Nikon technologies, the Df uses the same 16.2 megapixel sensor and viewfinder as the D4 and is as weatherproof as the D800/800E.
Highlights of the Nikon Df include an ISO range of 50-204,800, new Expeed 3 processor, 5.5fps burst shooting, 39 AF points, massive 1400 shot battery life, and a quiet shutter mode. The Nikon Df supports SD cards, with one slot available in the same compartment as the battery. A special coupling lever allows non-AI lenses from as far back as 1959 to be mounted on the Nikon Df.
The Nikon Df feels large and substantial in the hand, with a plethora of controls on top of the camera allowing for quick and easy access to most of the principal controls, while the excellent viewfinder from the D4 is a joy to use.
With no built-in flash or any video mode at all, the Nikon Df is definitely one for the purist stills photographer who wants a more direct, hands-on experience with their camera, and who values the gorgeous retro styling that Nikon have so lovingly lavished their attention on.
The Nikon Df will retail for £2749.99 / $2,999.95 with the new 50mm f/1.8 G kit lens and is due to ship in the UK on the 28th November 2013.
We look forward to reviewing the new Nikon Df in a lot more depth as soon as we can get our hands on one...
