Most of us have some pleasant memories of the days long gone by. And while photos do help us remember the good old days, Nikon has gone a step further and announced the Nikon Df, a retro style DSLR equipped with the best that technology has to offer. It reminds of the days when instead of SD cards, pictures were captures on films, without actually going through the hassle of developing them in the studio.
Nikon Df offers the same full frame 16MP sensor that is seen on the flagship D4. Along with that, Df comes with Expeed 3 imaging processor and a top ISO of 12,800. Additionally, the camera comes equipped with 39 AF points, pentaprism viewfinder, 3.2 inch 921k-dot LCD and 5.5fps burst shooting. The magnesium alloy body weighs 710 grams and is weather proof.
The camera is compatible with Nikon’s AF, AF-S, DX and AF-D lenses, in addition to Ai and non-Ai Nikkor lenses that go all the way back to 1959. The Nikon Df ships in the US next month for $2,750. Consumers can also pick up one for $3,000 packed along with a specially designed 50mm f/1.8 lens.
