Nikon Df Gets Official

Nikon’s Pure photography campaign has been going on for the last few weeks and has photographers around the world intrigued.  Rumor websites were abuzz with poorly focused images cut from the series of teaser videos Nikon released.  So why the buzz you ask?  The Nikon DF has a full frame sensor packed into a retro black and silver/black body, it is Nikon’s thinnest and lightest full frame camera to date.  The official release date is November 28th, 2013.

The Df combines intuitive, worry-free dial operation with superior image quality over a broad range of sensitivities in the smallest and lightest FX-format body, making the camera extremely portable. Large metal mechanical dials on the top of the camera enable direct, intuitive operation, offering tactile pleasure of shooting with precision mechanics, and allowing users to feel the joy of creating images that reflect their individual intent. The camera also provides a system that allows users to focus on shooting with the security that comes from visual confirmation of ISO sensitivity, shutter speed, and exposure compensation values, as well as the convenience of direct adjustment of settings at any time, even when the camera is turned off.
