Nikon Df overview

  • 1Description

The silver Nikon Df DSLR Camera revolves around a unique manual and mechanical design that champions a simple and intuitive method of working, while still retaining the highest imaging quality and functionality available. Featuring a full-frame, FX-format 16.3MP CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor, the Df is capable of producing high-resolution, well-detailed still imagery with exceptional color rendition, tonal gradation, and highlight and shadow detail. A notable low-light sensitivity range of ISO 100-12800 can be further expanded to ISO 50-204800 for challenging lighting conditions and a top continuous shooting rate of 5.5 fps aids in working with fast-moving subject matter.

The manually configurable design of the Df blends a timeless control scheme with contemporary precision to enable simple and direct handling of all exposure features of the camera. Utilizing dedicated shutter speed, exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, exposure mode, and release mode dials, efficient control is possible without needing to delve into a complex menu structure. For viewing, both an optical glass pentaprism viewfinder and 3.2" 921k-dot LCD monitor are housed within the magnesium alloy body design. When using the LCD for live view shooting, the image can be magnified up to 19x for critical focus and a fast contrast-detection focusing method is used. Both a hot shoe and flash sync terminal are integrated into the body's design, too, as well as a unique mount system that employs a metering coupling lever to enable the use of both AI and non-AI lenses for extensive support of NIKKOR lenses from the past and present.

When working with the optical viewfinder, the Multi-CAM 4800 AF system is used and employs 39 points about the frame, with nine cross-type points for added accuracy when photographing in more difficult light. Seven centrally-located sensors are also compatible with f/8 or faster lenses, which greatly enhances the autofocus performance when working with longer, telephoto lenses used in combination with teleconverters.

Accurate exposure metering is done using a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and Nikon's Scene Recognition System, which automatically analyzes all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, and color, and compares these values to an on-board database in order to determine an appropriate exposure value that is consistent from image to image. White balance, autofocus, and i-TTL flash metering also use this system and, additionally, the Spot White Balance feature can be used in live view for pin-point selection of a white area within the scene to deliver true color balance. Built-in HDR and Active D-Lighting can be used to extend the apparent dynamic range of a scene and Picture Control settings can be applied to refine the overall look and feel of colors and contrast in-camera.

Included with the body is the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition lens, a fast normal prime that pairs well with the classical design of the camera body. A Silent Wave AF motor ensures fast, precise, and smooth focusing performance and also enables seamless transitioning to manual focus for refined precision. One aspherical element is incorporated into the optical design to reduce chromatic aberration and contribute to high image sharpness and clarity.

Timeless Design with Contemporary Performance
Separating itself from other DSLRs, the Df revolves around a classically-inspired design that employs a manual control scheme and a pared-down interface to inspire a more intuitive and efficient method of working. As a still image-only camera, key design elements cater to the needs of a photographer, including dedicated mechanical dials for shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, exposure mode, and release mode control as well as the incorporation of a bright pentaprism viewfinder, cable release socket, hot shoe, and flash sync terminal. The magnesium alloy body also houses a large 3.2" 921k-dot LCD monitor, which can be used for live view monitoring, image playback, and menu navigation.

A unique lens mount system has also been developed and integrates a metering coupling lever to enable the use of both AI (Aperture Index) and non-AI lenses. This means that in addition to supporting current AF-S, AF-D, and AF NIKKOR lenses, past manual focus, non-AI lenses can also be used without any modification necessary.
16.2MP FX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 3 Image Processor
The 16.2 megapixel full-frame (FX) CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor work in tandem to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 12800, which is further expandable to ISO 204800. This still image-only camera is also well-suited to working with moving subject matter with a top 5.5 fps continuous shooting rate using either the viewfinder or when working in live view.
AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition Lens
Included with the silver Df body is the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition lens; a fast normal-perspective lens that features a complementary design with enhanced knurling on the focusing ring to emphasize the manual shooting capabilities of the camera. When using autofocus, a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is integrated into the lens to enable fast, precise focusing that is equally quiet and smooth. One aspherical element is also incorporated into the optical design to help minimize chromatic aberrations and maintain high image sharpness and clarity.
39-Point Multi-CAM 4800 AF Sensor
Benefitting the exceptional image quality is an apt AF system that employs 39 distinct AF points, including nine cross-type sensors, to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions, from -1 to +19 EV. An intelligent Scene Recognition System, typically reserved for exposure metering, benefits the focusing performance by analyzing and identifying subjects to suit panning and tracking-based shooting styles. Depending on the situation, 9, 21, or 39 point arrays can be selected from and seven centrally-located points are compatible with f/8 or faster lenses, extending the auto focusing abilities of the longest lenses used in conjunction with teleconverters. When using this phase-detection focusing method, selectable AF-area modes include: Single-point AF mode, Dynamic-area AF mode, 3D-tracking mode, and Auto-area AF mode.

When working in live view, a contrast-based AF system is employed to acquire focus precisely and can function in continuous, full-time servo mode to better-suit working with moving subjects. Four distinct AF-area modes are available when using the contrast-detection focusing method: Face-priority AF, Wide-area AF, Normal-area AF, and Subject-tracking AF. Additionally, benefitting working with manual focus when in live view, the image can be magnified up to 19x for critical examination and easier focus confirmation.
Scene Recognition System
The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II utilizes a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.
Other Camera Features
  • Picture Control modes can be directly accessed via a dedicated button and allow you to set predefined looks to imagery in-camera, and include Landscape, Monochrome, Neutral, Portrait, Standard, Vivid, and user-customizable settings.
  • Active D-Lighting helps to preserve both highlight and shadow details when working in contrast-rich scenarios, such as backlit lighting. Utilizing the EXPEED 3's processing power, a more controlled image will be produced with brightness values closer to how they are naturally seen. This mode is suitable for working with moving subjects.
  • Built-in HDR works to extend the tonal and exposure range of a single image by recording two separate exposures and blending them together in order to gain greater highlight and shadow details with an extended range of mid-tones. The smoothness of the edge where the two separate exposures meet can be adjusted for more apparent softness to benefit images with a greater range of encompassed exposure values. This mode is best suited for working with stationary subjects.
  • The accessory terminal supports the use of the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter to enable remote, instant transferring of photos to Android and iOS mobile devices for sharing online. The GP-1A GPS Unit is also supported, which automatically adds locational information to images' metadata for geotagging applications.
  • Spot White Balance enables precise, selective control of the white balance setting by simply pointing and metering a pure white portion of the scene in order to set the proper color balance when working in live view.
  • One memory card slot is available and accepts SD, SDHC, and SDXC type memory cards, including UHS-I SDHC and SDXC cards.
  • An in-camera virtual horizon can detect both rolling (horizontal inclination) and pitching (forward or rear inclination) directions and display an electronic level on the LCD when working in live view. The rolling direction of tilt can also be displayed within the viewfinder.
  • Supported languages: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Ukrainian.

    Nikon Df reviews

    Df DSLR Camera with 50mm f/1.8 Lens (Silver) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Low-light tool and with style For low-light work, color saturation and contrast remain of high image quality to ISO 6400, in my experience. Even ISO 12800 is quite usable. I can't imagine an equal or finer low-light photographic tool, except the Nikon D4, which is much larger, heavier, more expensive and too conspicuous for shooting in crowded interiors. In addition, the retro style is, ironically, a refreshingly new development for digital DSLRs -- one that provides ease of use and effective ergonomics. It is surprisingly light for the quality of its sturdy build. And I think is looks stylishly cool.It may not be for everyone, but I am most satisfied with my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! Great high ISO performance - the ultimate travel camera. Although I do use this as a back up to my two D4 bodies at weddings because it has the same sensor as the D4. Very light weight - also most beautiful DSLR on the market in my humble opinion. Best with prime lenses but not so great with pro zooms as it does not counter balance very well simply because of its light weight. Shutter sound is also very sweet - nice and quiet compared to the klack sound with other pro Nikon bodies. I highly recommend this camera. Some minor complaints: SD card is in same location as battery compartment, tight AF points, have to press DoF preview to get Live view, no built-in WiFi, and max shutter speed of 1/4000 of a second.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I so love this camera! I am a professional photogapher, shooting mostly weddings and events and I love this camera! I cannot believe the ease of shooting and the quick response of the Nikon Df. Fantastic full frame and great to crop and bring the close-ups even closer. I shoot my weddings in extremely low light with no flash and this camera is exactly what I have been waiting for. Beautiful wedding shots. It did not take long at all to get used to the knobs and I can use it all day without tiring. No cons for me; I love everything about it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool camera for sure. I'd reccomend it to the photographer enthusiast or to someone with spare cash.-I believe this camera probably has the best iso performance of any camera I've ever known, because of this, it has great handholding strength, without the need of support. It's got low-light strength you have to see to believe. It'll give you a lot of nice-size stills too, because of the superd battery life.I however didn't keep my DF because of personal trends ands some qurks with the camera that impacted my shooting style. The best thing about B&H as a company is their customer support. I usually order from them because of peace of mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Nikon camera I have ever owned I have been using Nikon cameras for more than 30 years. My favorite film camera was the F3. My first digital Nikon was the D1X. My favorite digital Nikon until the Df was my D700. I really missed the look and feel of my Nikon film cameras. The Df is the best of both worlds. The mechanical controls are exactly where I expect them to be. The digital menu of the Df is identical to my D700. There is no problem switching between the two cameras. I have little interested in video. I have my D700 for video. The Df seems much lighter than my D700. The fact that I can use all of my old film camera lenses on the Df is a huge benefit. I give the Df five stars. I can recommend it without reservation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon Df Purchasing this camera was like when I bought my first Nikon FM!!!!! I was so excited and was so enthralled with the capabilities of the new then FM and now with the Nikon Df I am constantly blown away with all the things it can do. I feel like a kid at Christmas again. For me this is the perfect digital camera and I will be discovering all the ways I can push this camera to shoot things in the manner that I take shots!! Just like when I got my first FM!! Love this camera. Multiple exposures, slow speed shots, pin point auto focus, perfect color reproduction, sharp as attack 50mm f1.8G lens!!!!!!! I highly recommend this camera to any one who is serious about photography and also to someone who would like to become serious about photography !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous photos and lovely to hold I am in love with this camera. Before this, I shot with film and every so often my D200 from college. Since I mostly shoot for myself (a few pieces in galleries, but I'm mostly an advanced-ish hobbiest), I had been happy with my set-up but had been looking idly for a digital camera with (much) better low light capability. I got this for myself for my birthday this year. The photos are lovely. I love that it works with all my film lenses. I find the dials really conveniently located. I love that it's so tiny for a DSLR and so light and easy to carry around. I love how it looks and feels. I don't care about video or gargantuan megapixel count, and so this is the camera for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This camera grows on you The more I use this camera the better I like it. I find that I am using it more than my D800. The Df has received a lot of negative comments by people who apparantly have never even had one in their hands. This is unfortunate. I find the controls on the top to be very convenient. The image quality is supurb. The camera is light and easy to carry all day. I would, however, like to have a shutter on the viewfinder instead of a cap that is always in the way if attached by a string, or unavailable if not, and I would prefer to have two cards slots accessible separately from the battery chamber.
