This Weeks DF Thread 7/14/2014
5 months ago

Hello Again,

I thought it might be fun to try a This Weeks DF Thread and see if people will chat more about their DFs. Sharing some of your DF pictures would be great as well.

Let me start by offering some links I found about the DF. These seem fairly unbiased. The DF seems like the camera that has polarized many. Some like it, some try it and for many still the price will not make it a thinkable choice. You can pick up a used on though for around $2400 now.

The most incredible thing I have found so far is it noise performance, it's hands down the least noisiest DSLR I have ever used. I compared it informally to a D810 and well, the DF beats the D810 by a wide margin in my unscientific eye only test at ISO 1600. I still have a D810 coming to join my DF, so this one was maybe a preproduction model I played with at a photo store in Omaha NE this past Saturday at a tent sale where Nikon had a rep and camera. My D810 will likely show up sometime in mid August and I'll post samples else ware. yes, I really did have my hands on a D810 yesterday.

Got to handle and use a D810 in Omaha NE this weekend. Its also a nice camera!

Here is another roost I found googling around on the DF.

Believe it or not this next post is what really caused me to go to the local store and play more with the DF.

Yhea, I know, why did this one make the difference. Saw something in the night time images.

So, if you own a DF, please share your thoughts, links and photos here this week. If it works out we can try it again next week. I plan on sharing a few pictures maybe Tonight or Monday some time.

I think it will be fun to answer questions as well. I hope though the thread just stays about the DF as the polarizing nature of the camera seems to make for heated discussion. Perhaps the fact it is so polarizing adds to its intrigue for some.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing your cool DF pictures here!
