The Nikon Df is, at first appearance, the camera that many people have been asking for, for years - a classically styled DSLR with traditional external controls. But, for all Nikon's talk of a return to 'Pure Photography,' an awful lot of what's under the Df's confidently retro skin is pretty familiar. The Df is built around the 16MP full frame sensor from the company's flagship D4 with the processor and AF system borrowed from the comparatively affordable D610.

One of the most common complaints I hear about DSLRs comes from enthusiast photographers who want a camera that operates in the same way that their old film SLR did. This is usually followed with a plea for a DSLR that doesn't shoot video. And it is exactly this photographer at which Nikon has targeted the Nikon Df.

Looking back to move forward - that’s what the Nikon Df is all about. This retro style DSLR marries the classic Nikon SLR style of years gone by with much of the Japanese company’s modern tech. It’s the only Nikon DSLR capable of supporting current F-mount and older non-AI lenses thanks to a collapsible coupling lever in the design. So if you’ve got old lenses it could be the perfect partner.

The Nikon Df is a retro-styled DSLR which pays homage to Nikon's iconic film SLRs of the Seventies. Announced in November 2013, it takes the 16.2 Megapixel full-frame sensor of the flagship D4 and houses it in an unashamedly old-fashioned body with physical dials for the shooting mode, release mode, shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation.

The new Nikon Df is a 16.2 megapixel full-frame Digital SLR that is said to be a fusion of old Nikon qualities with the latest digital technology from the other Nikon D range digital SLRs. It is available with a special edition of the AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens which has the same optical performance as the standard 50mm f/1.8G lens. The Df is available in black or silver, priced at £2749.99 with 50mm f/1.8G and only available as a kit with no plans for body only in the UK, although this may vary depending on country.

The Nikon Df is a new kind of DSLR for Nikon, but it is indeed still a normal DSLR with a new/old fancy design. While it performs much like a D800 or D610 or D4 it is the style and design that separates it from the crowd. In the past 2-3 weeks that I have been shooting the Df I have had no less than 5 compliments and inquiries on it. People see it and are immediately struck by the beauty of the camera. It looks retro yet modern though two people thought this was film camera. So that right there tells me that Nikon designed it just as they intended.

The Nikon Df is their first retro-styled digital camera. The Nikon Df brings a highly mechanical interface into the digital era. This full-frame DSLR is certainly a hybrid though with dual control-dials, plus dedicated dials for EC, ISO, Shutter-Speed and Exposure modes.
