All the power of digital with the charm of the analog. Comes the new Nikon Df, a reflex that has all the controls, dial nuts as once. Not just a matter of taste. The features of the cameras have become so complex that handling all the various settings becomes complicated with just a few buttons and a small screen. Design (Jobs said) not how it looks, how it works. The years of using dials and buttons have created a design, a way of operating the cameras, too soon abandoned in favor of multi-function buttons, screens and touches. The Nikon Df is not the first camera to retrieve old commands, but a reflex and reports in full the whole way of setting diaphragms and times of the mechanical machines of the past. Certainly the important look, also because it transmits the richness, the constrictive care of this 16.2 megapixel SLR, equipped with a full frame CMOS sensor with a range Iso awesome. It has many features borrowed from the flagship of Nikon, the D4, but with a smaller and lighter body. At the moment the Df is the lightest and smallest FX camera available. Not designed for videos, Nikon wanted to give a specific identity to the Df, for photographers those who love a manual experience in shooting. The technological wonders to which we are accustomed by the speed remain intact: 5.5 frames per second to the 3.3 inch HD display. The price? $ 2,750 for the camera body only.
