Nikon Df pays tribute to Nikon's F series cameras

Nikon has been making cameras since the 1950s. Although we are seeing more and more advanced Nikon cameras these days, the Japanese multinational corporation has surprisingly announced a new FX-Format DSLR today that features a classic design that dons a familiar pentaprism and top cover.

The new Nikon Df advanced-level DSLR pays tribute to Nikon’s “F” series of 35mm film cameras. However, the FX-format camera isn't really vintage down to the core. Nikon has, much to the excitement of many photography enthusiast, brilliantly integrated the latest advanced imaging technnologies into this shooter. In fact, Nikon is using the same technology used on its flagship Nikon D4 on the Df.

Design-wise, the camera now uses a durable and lightweight magnesium alloy, as well as ophisticated mechanical controls for settings. The Df sports has a 16.2-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor and features a wide ISO range from 100 to 12,800, but expandable up to 204,800. Nikon's EXPEED 3 image processing engine ensures that the camera produces high-quality images with natural color and depth - qualities that Nikon cameras are known for.

Furthermore, the Nikon Df has a 39-point AF system and a burst shooting rate of up to 5.5 frames-per-second (fps). There's even a 3.2-inch LCD display and viewfinder that displays all the functionalities of the camera. Heading to markets this month, the Nikon Df will retail for $2,749.95. That's for the body alone.
