The new Nikon Df also features a mount system that works with all current AF-S, AF-D and AF NIKKOR lenses. Additionally, a metering coupling lever makes it possible to use both AI (Aperture Index) or non-AI lenses.
Focus Exactly Where You Want It
Whether you’re shooting with the glass pentaprism viewfinder or the LCD display in live view mode, the Nikon Df captures sharp-as-a-tack photos. Its 39-point autofocus system with nine cross-type sensors quickly locks onto the subject. Nikon’s unique 3D tracking uses the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor to recognize and follow it across the frame. When shooting with the LCD display in live view mode, the Nikon Df uses fast contrast-detect AF, operating at the same speed as the flagship D4, and can display your composition at up to 19x for accurate focus confirmation — perfect for tripod shooting.
Pictures as Your Eyes See Them
The Nikon Df features exceptional metering and onboard intelligence, freeing you to focus on the composition of your shots and, most importantly, the moment that’s taking place. Nikon’s outstanding Scene Recognition System analyzes your shooting situation, compares it to an onboard database of thousands of scenes, and automatically determines the most appropriate exposure, white balance and autofocus settings as well as i-TTL flash exposure when using a Nikon Speedlight.
Embrace Highlights and Shadows
Built-in HDR automatically combines two photos into one highly dynamic image, and new subject-based Active D-Lighting automatically brightens shadowy areas on your subjects — great for portraits.
Define Your Own Style
The Nikon Df’s easy-to-use Picture Controls let you alter your color palette and add a personal touch with six settings available: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape — allowing you to customize the look and feel of your photos.
