Df: the concept behind the "f"
Using its large, metallic mechanical dials, photographers will rediscover a more direct connection with their camera. This is Nikon's smallest, lightest FX-format body, yet it delivers high-quality images with rich description – from low to extremely high ISO. The Df represents a fusion between tactile precision mechanics and sumptuous image quality, stimulating artistic sensibilities and inspiring photographers to new levels of creativity beyond previous limitations of time, place and volume of available light. This is Nikon's proposal to passionate photographers: rediscover the fulfillment of measured, deliberate photography, and create your pictures one frame at a time.
Tactile precision mechanics to inspire photographers
The large mechanical dials on the top deck are carved from solid metal in order to allow more direct and purposeful exposure control. Photographers have easy access to a diverse array of innovative features, helping them create one-of-a-kind images. That's what the Df is built for: helping photographers relay their ideas more intuitively via mechanical dials, and then using cutting-edge innovations to produce the results they envisioned. With the Df, each frame becomes meaningful again.
A fusion of sumptuous image quality and lightweight mobility
Designed to travel, the Df has the smallest and lightest body among Nikon FX-format models, and in pursuit of pleasurable operability, the camera body was designed with sharp angles on its exterior to accommodate the large mechanical dials. Photographers can easily take the camera anywhere and use it comfortably for longer periods of time. On top of that, the Df incorporates Nikon's unique technologies in its FX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. Expect exceptionally versatile image quality – from ISO 100 to 12800.
