Experience the full pure power in photography with the Nikon DF Full Frame DSLR Camera. This camera boasts in a retro style with the same 16.6 MP with 36.0 x 23.9 mm CMOS sensor as Nikon’s flagship D4. The camera encompasses the passion in photography in all forms and functions. Having a huge 3.2-in., approx. 921k-dot (VGA), low-temperature polysilicon TFT LCD, you will be able to get all the details you want by incorporating the whole image on the screen. It also has a high-speed continuous shooting available from 1-5 fps (continuous low speed) or 5.5 fps (continuous high speed) in both FX and DX formats. With an ISO 100–12,800 extendable up to 204,800 (equivalent), it delivers a fine detail even if you shoot in challenging lighting conditions. Other features include Sensitive autofocus with Multi-CAM 4800 39-point AF system, Crop Mode, Compatible with SDXC UHS-I standard memory cards and Eye-Fi cards, Eye-level pentaprism single-lens reflex viewfinder and has Spot White Balance metering.
Product Features in Detail
Highly sensitive autofocus with Multi-CAM 4800 39-point AF system
Delivers fast and precise coverage across the frame. Sensitive down to -1 EV and compatible up to f/8. Four AF-area modes—including 3D-tracking AF—deliver sharp results, whether your subject is off-centre, moving fast, or acting completely unpredictably. In addition, the contrast-detect AF system boasts enhanced operability, accuracy, and speed when shooting in Live View.
Elegant mechanical dials
Comfort meets control with knurled mechanical dials that make operation simple and secure. The dials let you set ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, exposure mode, and release mode independently, enabling you to access all parameters relevant to stills photography without the need to access the camera’s menu.
Compatible with non-AI NIKKOR lenses
A unique collapsible metering coupling lever lets you attach even vintage non-AI NIKKOR lenses to the Nikon Df. When shooting with a non-AI lens in A (Aperture Priority) or M (Manual) mode, full-aperture metering (equivalent to that of AI lenses) is possible via simple camera settings.
High-performance optical viewfinder
The glass pentaprism viewfinder offers approximately 100% frame coverage and 0.7x magnification, as well as a DX Crop Mode with viewfinder marking.
Renowned Nikon build
Built to withstand severe conditions, the camera boasts tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy top, bottom, and rear covers, and is weather-sealed to the same degree as Nikon’s D800 D-SLR for enhanced resistance to moisture and dust.
Durable shutter unit
The highly accurate shutter unit has been tested to 150,000 cycles, with a maximum shutter speed of 1/4,000 s and flash synchronization at up to 1/200 s.
Large 8 cm (3.2-in.) 921k-dot LCD monitor
With wide viewing angle and reinforced glass. Delivers bright, crisp image playback with a wide colour reproduction capacity.
Quiet Release Mode
Perfect for discreet photography, the sound of the camera’s mirror return mechanism is noticeably reduced during the burst.
Dual-axis electronic virtual horizon
Roll (horizontal inclination) and pitch (forward or rear inclination) information can be confirmed via the LCD monitor, and roll information via the viewfinder.
Scene Recognition System
The camera’s image sensor and its 2,016-pixel RGB sensor provide precise data to the Scene Recognition System, which optimises exposure, autofocus, and white balance immediately before the shutter is released for sharply defined images.
Self-cleaning sensor unit
Reduces the accumulation of dust in front of the image sensor.
Spot White Balance metering
Enables highly accurate manual white balance settings by letting you quickly assign a Spot White Balance to the specific area of the frame you select during Live View shooting. The target you define can be moved around using the multi selector, allowing you to quickly acquire the present data for even distant subjects without the use of a grey card.
DX format. The DX Crop Mode can be automatically enabled when a DX lens is attached. When shooting in Live View, the Nikon Df helps you with image composition by offering optional assist gridlines for 1:1 or 16:9 image ratios.
Optimum detail in high-contrast conditions
Two modes help capture the details in strong light, or in backlit situations. HDR (High Dynamic Range) is ideal for stationary subjects and Active D-Lighting is ideal for photos of moving subjects. Both modes allow you to select the intensity level.
In-camera creative tools
Use Picture Controls to fine-tune parameters such as sharpness, saturation, and hue before capture. Use the extensive photo retouch menu to access a range of tools and effects.
Achieves approximately 1400 shots* (when using the EN-EL14a battery, in single-frame mode).
Compatible with SDXC UHS-I standard memory cards and Eye-Fi cards.
