Nikon has unveiled its new DSLR, the Df. It's a full-frame camera that sports a gorgeous retro style and is compatible with older non-AI lenses in addition to the current lenses available.
Inspired by the Nikon F series of 35mm film cameras, the Df combines old aesthetics with modern technology, perfect for photography enthusiasts who have a fondness for cameras past but a passion for top-quality results.
Inside, the Df uses the same image sensor as Nikon's flagship D4 – a 16.2-megapixel FX-format CMOS sensor – and the same EXPEED 3 image processor too. This means excellent dynamic range and light sensitivity can be expected, although there are Nikon cameras with more pixel-packed sensors, including the Nikon D610 and the Nikon D800, which have 24.3- and 36.3-megapixels respectively.
When it comes to performance, Nikon says that the Df can start up in 0.14 seconds, and that it is capable of continuous shooting at 5.5 fps.
On the side of the Df, you'll find a USB port, a HDMI output and an accessory terminal for wireless remote controllers.
