nikon has announced the ‘Df ‘, a lightwight full-frame D-SLR that pays homage to the analog style and mechanical dials from the company’s ‘F’ series of 35mm film cameras. built exclusively out of a magnesium alloy, the device packs technology similar to the digital nikon D4. it features a 16.2 megapixel 36 x 23.9mm CMOS sensor and 50mm f/1.8g special edition lens that handles light with a wide ISO range from 100 to 12,800, expandable to ISO 204,800. designed for the internet of things, the camera also allows users to connect and share their images instantly using the optional WU-1a wireless mobile adapter — download and share images or remotely fire the camera by syncing to a smartphone or tablet. the nikon Df will be available later this month with the 50mm f/1.8 lens for 2,999.95 USD.

 

‘nikon cameras have played an important role in documenting world history for the better part of 50 years, and have earned their position as a reliable tool that pros and enthusiasts can count on,’ says masahiro horie, nikon’s director of marketing and planning.  ‘the nikon Df represents much more than a storied legacy of cameras; it’s more about giving the user a chance to truly enjoy the experience of taking amazing images,’ he adds.
