The Nikon Df Digital SLR is a full-frame retro-styled camera that’s packed with the latest technologies. It boasts the same 16.2 megapixel FX-format sensor as the Nikon’s flagship D4, and thanks to a wide dynamic range & light sensitivity that is extendable up to an incredible ISO 204,800 (equivalent), detailed photographs with smooth tonal gradations are achievable in any light. Built to withstand severe conditions, the Df boasts tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy top, bottom, and rear covers, and is weather-sealed to the same degree as the Nikon D800 for enhanced resistance to moisture and dust.
Nikon Retro design
Boasting looks inspired by classic 35mm Nikon film cameras and technology from Nikon’s latest professional DSLRs, the Df is dedicated to pure photography. The Df is portable too thanks to a compact body that weighs approximately 710g. It features a tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy top, bottom, and rear covers, and is weather-sealed.
16.2-megapixel FX-format (full-frame) CMOS sensor
Equipped with the same image sensor as Nikon’s flagship D4, the Df offers exquisitely detailed images with smooth tonal gradations.
Boasts approximately 0.14 s start-up time and 0.052 s shutter-release time lag. High-speed continuous shooting is available at up to 5.5 fps in both FX and DX formats.
With ISO 100–12,800, extendable up to 204,800 (equivalent), the Df delivers finely detailed images with minimal noise, even when you shoot under challenging lighting conditions.
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.
EXPEED 3 Processor
Nikon’s fast and powerful image processor ensures remarkably clear images with excellent colour reproduction and superb tonal gradation, even when you shoot at high ISOs.
Large 3.2-inch (8cm) 921k-dot LCD monitor
With wide viewing angle and reinforced glass, it delivers bright, crisp image playback with a wide colour reproduction capacity.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
