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, simple 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.

Classic elegance with high-tech performance Over the years my passion has been photography and I have had many new amazing cameras. My first serious cameras were a Leica IIIf and an Exacta VXIIa. These were followed by many Nikon cameras, including the F3 (used intensely for 30 years without a problem!). the F4s, F100, D100, D300, V1, P7000 and others. When I first saw the Df and learned about its features I felt as if it had been designed specifically for me and I purchased it on November 29, 2013. I got the silver body kit as its heritage styling radiated a classic ambiance that I could not resist. I have been able to use the Df with all my old Nikkor lenses as never before and I also bought a new16-35 zoom that is razor sharp. Over the past year I have taken all types of photos, from a spyder’s eye to mountain waterfalls and the moon. I will not go into all the technical specifications here, because more importantly I have enjoyed this camera immensely every time I use it. The Df’s ability to take indoor pictures where the lighting is practically non-existent and yet obtain outstanding color and dynamic range with low noise exceeded my hopes by far. I can sum up this camera in one word – WOW! I should mention that people around me think the Df, with its brown vintage styled case and strap, is an old film camera and this makes it even more fun for me. October 22, 2014
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
Reignited My Passion for Still Photography! It seems that half of the reviews for this camera online are "for," and half seem to be "against" the Nikon Df. Count me among the 50% who are passionately in love with this camera, which I purchased three weeks ago from nikonusa.com. I consider myself a "serious amateur" who -- owing to my work schedule and other hobbies -- is limited to shooting photos mainly on vacations and around the holidays. Nevertheless, on 2-3 week vacations to Malaysia and Southeast Asia over the past 10 years, I typically shoot between 3,000 - 4,000 photos per trip. Over the past three weeks after trading in my old D7000, I've shot about 1,500 pictures with my new Nikon Df. As soon as I stumbled on this "new" camera from Nikon a few months ago, I immediately fell in love with its classic good looks. Not only is its design and look distinctively different from all of the other mid-to-high priced DSLR's out there, it took me back to "the good old days" at college, where I first learned how to shoot a 35mm single lens reflex film camera while working on the student newspaper, borrowing the photo editor's Nikkormat FTn or my co-Editor-in-Chief's Canon FTb. Following graduation and during my 20's to 40's I used a combination of Nikon and Canon 35mm SLRs, until I purchased my first digital camera in 2000. My new Nikon Df does exactly what Nikon promises: it helped me re-discover (and appreciate) the art and science of photography, with amazing results. The look of the camera initially caught my attention, but using it over the past few weeks -- as well as actually studying the manual as a "refresher" photography course -- helped me recall the knowledge I gained years ago necessary to properly operate the mainly manual old SLRs I owned in the past. Having upgraded from a D7000, which for me was a great camera, my initial experience with an FX camera has been very positive. Using Nikon's AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5 and 70-200 f/4 lenses, as well as the special edition 50mm that came with the Df's kit, I've started taking some very memorable and pleasing photos. I very much like the look and feel of the various knobs and buttons on this camera, and haven't had any problem twisting and setting the controls, even when shooting exterior photos of my apartment building this morning barehanded in 35-degree weather. For me, reading the manual and practicing with my new Df has been a fun and educational experience. And based on the results I've been getting with my practice photos, a very rewarding experience, as well. In my opinion, Nikon hit one out of the park in bringing out a "retro" camera that looks distinctively different from all of the other DSLRs, but that also borrows technology from its top-of-the line models that resulted in a camera that's a perfect step-up from their mid-priced cameras. I don't at all miss the inability to take videos with my Df, since I only used this feature on my D7000 two or three times, plus I have the options of taking videos on my iPhone, iPad or GoPro Hero if I want to shoot motion. And besides, I wanted a camera to take stills, and not videos. Overall, this is a really fun, high-quality DSLR, and I'm very happy that someone at Nikon was able to bring this concept to market. I recommend this camera to anyone who wants a beautiful, high-quality camera that is rewarding to operate and produces outstanding results. I'm very grateful that I accidentally stumbled on Nikon Df on Nikon's web site. November 15, 2014
i love it i'm mostly a travel and family photographer. my silver df usually has a 24/ 2.8 mounted. i't's hard to believe that this is an fx camera due to it's size. it's light weight makes it perfect for traveling. i just love the looks and the great pics that it takes. it would be perfect for me if it shot video also.
