The Nikon Df is a mixed bag. We really wanted to love this camera, but sometimes memories are best left in the past. Given the price, the Df will appeal to the super rich who can afford such gadgets, and a very small group of photographers who are happy to leave the digital age (for the most part)...

  • +

    Amazing low-light capability, Love those dials, Excellent stills, Compatible with older Nikkor lenses

  • -

    Too darn expensive, No video or Wi-Fi, Images dreadful at ISO 204,800

With its retro styling and mechanical dials, the Nikon Df is likely a love-it-or-hate-it proposition for most photographers.

  • +

    Excellent image quality, especially in good light, Impressive high ISO performance, Extensive external controls, Above average dynamic range, Solid feature set

  • -

    Expensive, expensive, expensive, Some external controls are difficult to use, 5.5 fps continuous shooting, No video capture (which may or may not be a drawback)

They say the best camera is the one you have with you. But there might be a better kind of camera: The one you never want to put down. Indeed, the full-frame Nikon Df’s appeal goes far beyond its throwback aesthetic, which borrows heavily from the black-and-silver body of the 35mm FM series from the...

  • +

    Excellent image quality, especially in low light. Sturdy metal throwback controls for everything. Accepts pre-aperture-indexing (Ai) Nikkor lenses from the days of yore. Solid build quality and classic aesthetics. Just a hell of a lot of fun to shoot with.

  • -

    Autofocus has a tough time locking in on some shots. No built-in flash. Doesn’t shoot video. Storage is handled by a single SD card slot. Expensive.

The Nikon Df isn't for everyone. This is a product that's as much about invoking nostalgia as it is about capturing the moment. Its control setup is slower than a modern DSLR, but should appeal to those photographers who want a camera that feels more like a camera than an electronic device, and its...

  • +

    Classic styling, Outstanding IQ in bright and low light, High quality JPEG images with pleasant color at default settings, Good blend of traditional and contemporary controls, Works with almost all Nikon F-mount lenses ever made, Gives sensible choice for using aperture ring or command dial, Lots of...

  • -

    Disappointing AF performance drops off in moderate light, Small coverage area of AF array, Locking exposure comp dial is inconvenient (especially with large lenses), Inconsistent use of materials detracts from sense of quality, 1/4000th sec maximum shutter speed, No exposure scale or histogram in...

The Nikon Df reminds me of Microsoft’s Courier tablet. On paper, the fusion of Nikon’s esteemed design heritage with its latest technology is an obvious win, but turning that aspiration into a practical reality has turned out to be harder than anticipated.

  • +

    Has the guts of a Nikon D4, Works with classic full-frame lenses, Built to last and will only get prettier with age

  • -

    Terrible, unwieldy controls, Inexplicable lack of video recording, Fails to justify price premium over D610

The full-frame, FX-format Nikon Df takes the same great sensor and processor pairing of the professional Nikon D4, and places them in a retro-styled body that, while occasionally clumsy, is undeniably handsome.

  • +

    Same sensor and processor as professional D4; Great image quality; Arguably the best available-light shooter in its class; Handsome, retro styling; Weather-sealed design; Big, clear full-frame viewfinder; Excellent battery life, Same sensor and processor pairing as pro-oriented Nikon D4, but at half...

  • -

    Expensive; Bulky, yet handgrip is quite modest; Some controls are clumsy; Plastic body panels don't gel with retro aesthetic; Autofocus isn't in the same league as image quality; No AF assist lamp; No movie capture; No portrait grip; Single card slot, Pricetag is close to that of impressive Nikon...

The Nikon Df is the first and only retro-style DSLR on the market. Its very mechanical controls offer a return to the tactile feel of photography. Nikon is essentially taking the image-quality of the top-notch D4 and fitting it - in an even improved version - in a compact full-frame body, yet...

  • +

    Class-leading image noise, Excellent retention of details, Superb dynamic-range, Very fast and responsive, Very-fast autofocus, Ultra-short black-out, Good color-accuracy, Flexible self-timer and exposure delay, Manual focus assist direction indicator, Superb build quality, Excellent battery-life

  • -

    Poor Automatic WB in low-light, Poor placement of mechanical controls, Unusable with gloves, Exposure Delay mode hidden in menu, Bizarre Auto ISO, Shallow hand-grip, Strap eyelet hurts, Live-view not Exposure-Priority

As some people have also recognized, there seems to be a romantic side of Nikon that has the tendency to produce old-school cameras. Back in 2001, over a decade into the auto focus era and the rapid transition to digital had already started, Nikon introduced the final installment of the FM/FE series...

Every now and then you’ll feel a little skip in your heart, triggered by something memorable, something nostalgic, something comfy, soothing and satisfying. It might not happen often but when it does you’ll know it’s right, you’ll know you’re where you belong.

Having used the camera for the past few months, I understand why the Nikon Df creates so many emotions among photographers. It seems like the camp is divided between those that absolutely hate the Df and those that love and enjoy it.

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.

OK, so I'm an old dude, and have been taking pictures for a very long time. I still haven't found anything that improves on my old Nikon FE model (the first to use a battery, which scared a lot of buyers).

What to say....Finally a DSLR that feels 'familiar' to these old hands that have been holding Nikkormats and Nikon F's, FE's and F2's since the early '70's. My Wife and I are both dedicated Nikon fans, having accumulated a 'collection' of Nikon bodies and Nikkor lenses over the years.

The Nikon Df uses the same 16mp CMOS sensor as their professional D4, so it has a very high dynamic range, and it is their lightest full-frame digital camera. It has an all metal construction, with analogue dials for ISO, shutter speed, exposure compensation, and shooting priority mode, so if you...

    Weight, Sensor, build quality, battery life, ability to use all current and legacy Nikon lenses.

    Only a single SD card slot. Videographers need not apply.

I loved this camera's look and feel as I am a big fan of the Fuji X-T1 and X100s. Having a full frame in this body size and format is quite endearing. But having said that, the body isn't as small as the Fuji's and once a Nikkor 24-70 goes on this body, it no longer feels like a walk-around camera.

  • +

    Awesome viewfinder and retro feel in a slightly smaller body

  • -

    ISO dials are hard to turn, max sync speed only 1/200.

Photography can be a nice hobby. For me, from the moment I first used my very first camera, a Nikon FM in 1980, it was, is, and has always been a huge passion in my life. In the past 37 years, I have owned 18 Nikons.

A unique DSLR with no competition, satisfies retro urge, but has image quality to match.

  • +

    Beautiful retro style, best low-light sensor on the market, did I say its beautiful?

  • -

    Expensive, silly locks make the dials invonvenient, no manual focus aid.

LOVE this camera, everything I expected. About as close to my roots as you can come in todays world. I bought my first NIKON FtN (motor driven) almost fifty years ago and have owned a steady progression during these 5 decades.

this camera was given to me as a gift and at first I hesitated but after after taking a couple shots, I am content with this camera. I have definitely become a Nikon fan for life

I like Nikon Df DSLR because I used films on old Nikon. I checked on new Nikon Df and really enjoyed that and really worth. If you want to learn that you will enjoy. I suggest you look it.
