Nikon Df

Announced Nov 5, 2013 •
16 megapixels | 3.2 screen | Full frame sensor

I've been using a black Nikon Df for a while now. I've bought nearly every accessories possible, and I even made a video with the Nikon Df. I have Douglas Klostermann's Nikon Df Experience on my Samsung Note Edge always with me. When I have a new camera, I do my best to learn and experiment with it as much as possible in order to be able use it the most efficient way to my style. I use the Df basically in one "exposure mode": aperture priority with two "submodes": automatic shutter speed (A) ...

I love shooting from the hip, low angle or from the ground level. It is quite straightforward with mirrorless cameras, but not so with the Nikon Df. Even if it had a tilting LCD, Nikon's implementation of AF in live view is quite slow. The Nikon DR-5 Screw-in Right Angle Viewfinder is quite expensive accessory, but it is the only way to use fast AF right-angle. The DR-5 is that it has 2x magnification. The DR-5 can be used together with the Matin LCD view-finder, too. The DR-5 has to be ...

Ray Sachs: "I've lost all gear lust since I got this camera". Me too. I am on a business trip in Mougins near Cannes. Incredible image quality, especially low-light. Excellent auto-focus. All photos taken with the Nikkor 50mm/f1.8D. I love that I can set the aperture on the lens. I have a 50mm/f1.4G lens too, but I think the D lens is more appropriate on the Nikon Df. I simply cannot put the camera down. I shoot in A mode, I haven't touched the shutter speed dial but I love the exposure ...

Now that most of the noise has died down and the Df has found a stabile audience, perhaps it's time to re-evaluate the Df as it now faces competition from newer models. IQ - This camera has the best IQ over the widest possible ISO range of ANY Nikon DSLR made and achieves this in a small and quiet body. Only the D4s is of this caliber, and I wouldn't buy that over the Df because the huge size is a deal breaker for me (and many others). D750 vs. Df - The d750 is my "new" favorite, but it does ...

Likes: Great sensor. Nice in the hand, surfaces feel lux, viewfinder is wonderful, lcd is nice, handles fast, controls are fun to use, and once you get the handle on them - are quick and intuitive.  Sturdy feeling. Dislikes: Handle is a bit less comfortable in my large hands.  My wife doesn't complain about this. Af is plus/minus in darker light - hunts a bit more than cam3500's.  Just go outside with it. Camera and Accessories (official case, strap etc,) a bit on the expensive side I guess, ...

BROKEN in 3 months. I am pro photographer shooting for galleries. I have sold my nikon 7d to buy Nikon DF. I like the feeling of the camera but there was a list of complains regarding it`s software. I didn't have such a slow camera for ages. Reviewing the photos is at least twice slower than anything previously I have owned. The problem came today. The shutter blinds got folded up!! How can Nikon ask 2000€ for a camera that gets broken after 3 months. Very disappointed. other issues are: 1- ...

I'm that guy. I always have a camera with me. I want a full frame, fast, low light, low weight camera in my bag all the time. I don't want to wait for the little computer and monitor to boot up. I want the camera to get out of the way. First, the Formalities It's been a tradition of mine to post my DSC_0001 for new cameras that I get, even when I screw it up and face the wrath of the internet jackals. OOC JPEG, slightly brightened. 50 f1.8 SE (Kit) As you're pixel peeping these images, keep ...

First off I would like to say thank you to Nikon for making a camera body that is different then the same old style which does get boring after a while.  I know this is subjective and it won't let your photos look any better but it's a nice change of pace.  We buy a lot of things in life and the styling of the objects often do come into place when making a decision.  If you're the type of person who doesn't take aesthetics into consideration then it just makes deciding what to buy that much ...

I have mixed feelings about the Df- I enjoyed using it for the most part. Pros: -Df made getting beautiful images easy provided subjects were well lit and/or contrasty and I planned my exposure properly. (I used it almost always in manual mode). -The "smoothness" of the images, the subtlety of the gradations, the liveliness/accuracy of the colors, the effectiveness of Active-D Lighting made the images largely special. -The body is pleasantly light, portable. -It's very quiet, "aurally ...
