What digital camera.32818507
6 December 2013

There’s no getting away from the fact that the Df is a pricey piece of kit (especially here in the UK). With the retro-inspired 50mm lens it’ll set you back £2749 – while considerably cheaper than the D4 , quite a considerable investment over a D610 or D800 with that same, allbeit not limited...

  • +

    D4 sensor delivers superb results at higher sensitivities; Solid specification even with the absence of video; Legacy lens support

  • -

    Too big; Doesn't feel quite as premium as it should; Awkward position of the exposure compensation dial

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)

The Nikon Df full-frame SLR camera lives half in the modern world and half in the analog era, and suffers a bit for it.

  • +

    Great high ISO image quality. 5.5fps continuous shooting. 921k-dot rear display. Dial-based control system. 100-percent viewfinder. Full compatibility with older manual focus Nikkor lenses.

  • -

    No video recording. Lacks focus assist beam and flash. ISO dial omits "A" setting. Retro design and chunky body clash. Modern focus screen not ideal for manual focus lenses. Shallow handgrip not a great match with larger lenses.

20 December 2013

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...

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.

27 February 2014

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)...

22 July 2014

The Nikon Df is a retro-style SLR camera with a 16MP full-frame sensor. While other Nikon SLRs, such as the D4, are clearly aimed at the professional and enthusiast markets, with all the attendant features of modern D-SLRs, the Df is clearly a “classic” camera approach, intended for “purists.

    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

1 March 2014

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...

I purchased this camera for its retro styling with a few dials/knobs on the top plate. Changing ISO, and shutter speed quickly without going into the menu and really fun. More importantly the image quality, camera IQ are as advertised.

21 November 2015

The D700 and the F6 at one time were my favorite Nikon bodies. The D800 and later the D810 produced outstanding images, but the files choked the life out of my computer and the bodies were heavier than I had come to like.

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...

    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.

4 June 2014

Never have I been more dissatisfied than when this purchase was made. First, the first camera was defective. Secondly, the replacement camera arrived open and the battery missing. Thirdly, I had to pay sixty-four dollars and seventy five cents ($64.75) U.S.D. coin of the realm.
