The timeless style of Nikon’s milestone cameras comes together with our cutting edge imaging technology in the new Nikon Df. The camera features a 16.2-megapixel FX CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 3 image processing engine with an ISO range of 100 – 12800, so you can capture stunning full frame images of exceptional quality every time – all from a camera that is equally exceptional in style and design.
POWER BEHIND THE LOOKS
Housed in the robust magnesium alloy, weather and dust resistant body of the Df is a 16.2-megapixel FX-format CMOS Sensor and EXPEED 3 image processing engine. The CMOS sensor provides an ISO range of 100 – 12800 (expandable from 50 to 204800) for capturing remarkable pictures with true-to-life colours, even in low light. Furthermore, the image processing power of the EXPEED 3 helps make it all possible, because it has all the power of Nikon’s flagship D4 – providing you with outstanding images at high and low sensitivities.
THE ULTIMATE IN STYLE AND DESIGN
Every detail on the Df has been meticulously crafted to create a camera of a timeless design – right down to the matching AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G (Special Edition) lens and the Information Display with the original monotone colour matching the body of the Df. Available in a choice of black or silver, the Df is our smallest and lightest FX format D-SLR yet, weighing in at only 710 grams.
TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP IN THE DETAILS
The camera has been designed for the ultimate photographic experience, with independent dials for setting shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, exposure mode and release mode. Each mechanical dial is crafted from solid metal, engraved and painted across the top. The tactile and audio feedback of the dial clicks also offers both precision and speed for total camera control.
ALWAYS IN THE MOMENT
Powering up in a mere 0.14 seconds and a release time lag of approximately 0.05 seconds, you will never miss an opportunity to capture the perfect image. Even the most sensitive situations can be captured with minimal disruption on the Quiet Shutter-Release mode. Compose your images with ease through the glass pentaprism viewfinder, which offers approximately 100% frame coverage (FX format), so every stunning image is exactly how you see it.
CAPTURE THE PERFECT SHOT EVERY TIME
Enjoy compositional freedom with the Df’s 39-point Autofocus (AF) System. Featuring a variety of AF-area modes such as Single point AF, Dynamic-area AF, 3D tracking and Auto-area AF, it ensures quick focusing throughout the frame, even on fast moving subjects. The intelligent Scene Recognition System also works hand-in-hand with the information from 2016-pixel RGB sensor and image sensor to evaluate the scene for precise sharpness and clarity
TAKE CONTROL TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The Info Button gives you the chance to craft your images further, giving you quick access to the functions that match your current photographic situation. Choose and adjust your desired image settings with Picture Control while shooting in live view for greater creative freedom over your images.
Compatible with the full range of Nikon lenses, including non-Al lenses and full support of the Creative Lighting System, wireless accessories, GPS unit and HDMI output, the Df opens up a whole new world of exploration.
