NIKKOR lenses and the Nikon system

NIKKOR — sharp, accurate, versatile and reliable

Only a high-quality, high-performance lens can draw out the full potential of the Df. NIKKOR lenses feature superior optical performance and reliability that are highly praised by professionals around the world. Nikon's original technologies such as Nano Crystal Coat that effective reduces flare and ghost effects even under harsh lighting, and Vibration Reduction that compensates camera shake in low-lit conditions reliably support high image quality of the Df. The vast NIKKOR lineup continues to grow, as do the opportunities for their users. Each and every one of them acts as a prism to transform photographers– ideas into images, helping them push their creativity further

Nikon Speedlights and the Creative Lighting System — improve your photographic artistry

Accomplish studio-quality lighting anywhere. With the Df, the Creative Lighting System and Nikon Speedlights, you can. Both the portable and powerful flagship SB-910 and the compact and intuitive SB-700 employ innovative i-TTL flash control that makes accurate flash exposure results accurate and simple. Open up the shadows in your subject matter with a direct flash from the hot shoe, or easily create side lighting for more depth and smooth, rounded tones. One Speedlight and a TTL remote cord make it possible. With two or more Speedlights, wireless remote control multiplies your creative possibilities. By incorporating multiple Speedlights compatible with Advanced Wireless Lighting, you can transform the mood of your photography in ways that are impossible with available light. The Df and Creative Lighting System make it easy.

GP-1/GP-1A GPS Unit (optional)

Enables the recording of location information such as latitude, longitude, altitude and UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) as EXIF data. Images with location information can be displayed on the Map workspace of ViewNX 2. The information can also be used on Nikon's image-sharing and storage service NIKON IMAGE SPACE, as well as other online image-sharing services and digital mapping software.

WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (optional)

Enables communication via wireless LAN between the camera and smart devices such as smartphones and tablets. You can also use your smart device as a remote live view monitor to confirm the image and shoot. Images transmitted to your smart device can be shared immediately. The adapter is compatible with smart devices using the iOS and Android Operating System.

Note: Using the WU-1a connected to a smart device requires you to install Wireless Mobile Utility (Can be downloaded free from the application store of each smart device) to the device prior to use.

WR-1 Wireless Remote Controller (optional)

By setting one WR-1 as a transmitter and another as a receiver attached to the Df, it is possible to view or change the camera settings*1 using the display of the transmitter.
