Nikon Df DSLR packs advanced features within a retro-styled chassis

The Nikon Df DSLR is a ‘modern classic’ that adopts a retro design, but doesn’t miss out on the essential imaging technologies that photographers seek. Additionally, the company has introduced the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition lens and will even sell leather carrying cases in black or brown shades along with the camera. It is slated to be up for sale sometime later this month.

Made of durable magnesium alloy, the relatively light in weight silver and black snapper employs a pentaprism, a top cover as well as mechanical controls with tactile feedback. It has been fitted with dials for adjusting shutter modes, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation and release and exposure modes. And that’s not all. Accessing all the modern controls is hardly a problem.

The company says that is the lightest FX-format Nikon camera and doesn’t forget to pack a punch. A 16.2MP CMOS sensor works towards offering good-quality images in any lighting conditions, while the Expeed 3 image processing engine works towards producing accurate pictures with color precision. And like its sibling, the Nikon D4, the device has a wide ISO range from 100 to 12,800. It can even be expanded to up to 204,800.

Furthermore, the Df DSLR boasts of the Nikon 39-point AF system with various modes to suit various shooting styles and the device is apt for capturing moving objects too. Complete with 2016-Pixel 3D Matrix Metering and the scene recognition system, the shooter with built-in HDR also has a number of picture controls and modes to enhance images. In addition to the glass pentaprism viewfinder, there’s a 3.2-inch LCD display and it extends support to the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter for wireless sharing and remote clicking.

The Nikon Df DSLR carries a price tag of $2,749.95, while the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G lens costs $279.95. Together, they will be available for $2999.95.
