Rediscover the joy of photography

As digital camera technology has evolved, so has the way we control our cameras. Mechanical dials have given way to buttons, menu systems and LCD displays. But what if we could blend the elegant, simplistic control and styling of classic Nikon film cameras like the F, F3 and FM/FE series with the advanced technology of Nikon's exceptional new D-SLRs? Enter the Nikon Df, a thrilling FX-format D-SLR with a unique mechanical operation system and classic styling along with Nikon's flagship digital camera technology. A perfect blend of classic and modern, the Nikon Df offers a more personal shooting style that will inspire a new relationship with your camera—one you may have known and lost over the years—and reawaken your joy for taking photos.

Beautiful photos, beautifully taken

Classic Nikon on the outside; digital Nikon on the inside

The Nikon Df is designed exclusively for taking still photos, enabling high reliability, advanced functions and elegant camera control in our thinnest, lightest FX-format D-SLR. Dedicated mechanical dials for shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, exposure mode and release mode let you focus on what matters—achieving your creative vision. Capture stunningly sharp, detailed images with rich, faithful colours, even in low light. The perfectly coordinated AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition kit lens is an outstanding companion, providing the exceptional performance of NIKKOR optics and advanced Nikon lens technology. Its manual focusing ring features the knurling/hatching of classic manual lenses for precise focus adjustments.

A lifetime of great performance

Flagship image quality, versatility and reliability

Life is full of diverse (and often difficult) shooting situations. Many of the advancements in digital photography have enabled new levels of versatility—remarkable ISO sensitivity, breathtaking resolution, ultra-fast performance and more. The Nikon Df is no exception. Like our flagship D4, its 16.2MP FX-format image sensor is paired with EXPEED 3 image processing for an optimal balance of resolution, image quality and shooting speed. Its wide ISO range (100–12,800 expandable down to 50 and up to 204,800) lets you capture sharp low-light subjects with crisp edges, shadow areas that reflect proper, natural tonal gradation and highlights with rich, smooth gradation.

Breathtaking results

Powerful advanced Nikon technologies

It's no surprise passionate photographers are passionate about Nikon—our engineers have invented and perfected some of the world's most important camera features. The Nikon Df continues that legacy of excellence and innovation. It incorporates our outstanding 39-point autofocus system with 9 highly accurate cross-type sensors that work all the way down to f/8. Achieve sharp focus no matter where you subject is within the frame at up to 5.5 frames per second. Quickly adjust white balance with our Spot White Balance feature. Create photos with dazzling dynamic range with built-in HDR and Active D-Lighting. Its rugged magnesium alloy body will withstand harsh conditions, and its 3.2-inch 921K-dot LCD display provides beautiful high-definition views of your shots.

Compatibility beyond compare

Pair with current and past NIKKOR lenses, Speedlights and more

For over 80 years, NIKKOR lenses have been regarded as some of the finest optics available. In fact, photographers are still using NIKKOR lenses 30 or more years old! The Nikon Df wouldn't be a true classic camera if it couldn't work with those lenses, so we developed 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. Use i-TTL compatible Speedlights, the AR-3 threaded cable release, Nikon's new WR Remote System and even Nikon's exciting WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter for instant Wi-Fi photo sharing to your smartphone or tablet!

Instantly share your great photos

Attach the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (sold separately) and instantly share your beautiful photos. Connect to the Nikon Df with a compatible smartphone or tablet*, then use it to browse your camera's memory card, import your favourite photos and even see what your camera sees and fire the shutter!

Catch exactly the right moment

When photo-worthy action starts, hold down the shutter button and capture every movement, expression and feeling at 5.5 frames per second, even when shooting with the LCD display in Live View mode. Stop reaching for your smartphone when an important moment happens—except to share the great shot you just caught with the Nikon Df.

Focus exactly where you want it

Whether you're using the viewfinder with its 100% frame coverage or the LCD display in Live View mode, the Nikon Df captures tack-sharp photos. Its 39-point autofocus system with 9 cross-type sensors quickly locks onto your subject, and 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 colour palette and add a personal touch with six settings available; Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait and Landscape—customize the look and feel of your photos.

Change your view of the world

The Nikon Df is compatible with so many past and present NIKKOR lenses, it's easy to expand your capabilities and creativity over time by growing your own collection.

Nikon Df…..great camera I have two Df's and all I can say it is lighter, quieter, great in low light and yes I can focus on the ground glass with fast lenses and check with the dot…I use 28mm and 105 AIS lenses as well as the 50mm that came with the camera….small camera, small lenses…body is built like a F3….feels great…..42 years of shooting with Nikon and other cameras…to many people who write reviews have never handled the camera, all they do is look at the photo, you have to use it to love it…....this is a great camera..thank you Nikon February 21, 2014
The Df is a winner! I have been a long time Nikon user, I have owned everything from the FM2, F100 right up to professional and consumer DSLR's. I currently have the D800 as well. I have now been using my Df for a week, and after one week all I can say is that I am in love! Don't always believe what you read on-line - many reviews are written by folks that don't get it. You need to spend time with this camera to get to know it, and it will feel like old is new again! The camera is a fresh approach to photography. All of the modern advances in image making, incorporated into a camera that makes you think before clicking the shutter. I have always been a full manual user - even with my advanced D800. I like complete control of the image, thus the Df was no stranger to me. This camera lends itself very well to using the f/1.8 primes ... it is a bit front heavy with heavier zooms, but no matter which lens you choose, you will capture great images! Have fun, create, and enjoy the images produced with the Nikon Df. January 15, 2014
Pretty near perfect The main reasons I got the Df is for image quality, low light capabilities and the looks of the camera. Other reasons that I like the Df. I just love the JPEGs that come out of the camera. The Df begs you to take photos. The camera is smaller and lighter than my D800E. Holding the Df is a pleasure and reminds me of the days of manual cameras. The build quality is great and feels solid in your hands when holding the camera. There is no popup flash on the Df which I really like. The shutter is quieter than my D800E. Basically this is my go to camera. Some of nits, which bug me, about the camera, 1) small LCD screen. If you have eyesight or reading problems the screen is just too small. 2) 1/4000 is the fastest shutter speed for a camera that cost this much, why? 3) I understand this is a retro camera, however it is digital right, video would have been nice. Not a show stopper, however, nice to have unless you are carrying another camera for video work. 4) The SD card is located near the battery. Why is not on the side like other Nikon Dxxx series camera's? Even with all this nits I still love the camera for some reason and why I gave it 5 stars. I like shooting with it more than my D800E. I have had the camera for nearly two months now. August 7, 2014
A pleasure to use... I have had a new Df for about three weeks and have put it through the paces. Overall, I am extremely pleased. Having all of your basic data (ISO, Shutter Speed, Compensation, Mode, etc.) visible at the same time on top of the camera makes this a real pleasure to use. Great weight. Great build. Great light sensitivity. I, too, would hope that any future version (if there is to be one) would have room for a second media card for overflow or simultaneous back-up. I could generally case less about video so am pleased that this camera is not cluttered with such features. Thanks, Nikon! August 1, 2014
The finest digital I have used. "Pure Photography" for sure. I had been waiting for some sort of retro style camera since going to digital. I always missed having the analog style design and I have always despised a built in flash. I just do. When I first got my Df I was happy to have the old style again, but discovered another purpose for this. When you look down to the top of the camera, it tells you everything without having to go through menus or look at a tiny LCD screen or push several buttons to see what you need to see. Exposure compensation, ISO, shooting mode, shutter speeds when in manual or Shutter mode, other details too when just looking down at the top. The camera is very, very light weight and the battery lasts forever. Use of the SD card is nice because it saves a few pennies on not having to buy more expensive CF cards. 16MP is plenty and delivers resolution that of the D4s. It's low light capability is incredible and has acceptable resolution up to ISO 6400, I have found, with the use of digital noise removal. The Df is a "traditional" photography person's camera, that's for sure, and missing the video. It was designed that way and I like it that way. That was the purpose of it's production, hence the commercial "Pure Photography", not Pure Photography and Video. Video is desired by some but not by all. In the production of this camera I'm glad they left it off. In my opinion newer DSLR cameras are packed with too much making them harder to learn for beginning photographers. Not the case for the Df. As a photography teacher I think it would be easier for students to learn on the Df than any other because of the lack of some features. Even though this is, the Df still does pack useable features. It's loaded; but easier. Only thing I would change about the Df would be to make it accepting and available a vertical grip with duel batteries and an SD card slot so you wouldn't have to take the grip off. Duel SD card slots would be nice too, and would give it a fatter grip making it more comfortable to hold. In addition move the strap lugs. When the strap is mounted it tends to get in the way when shooting with the index finger. Other than those things the Df is a perfect camera for the "traditional" shooter. I highly recommend this for anyone who is not looking for video and loves just shooting stills. Thank you Nikon for bringing back to life an old friend in digital. July 19, 2014
