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.
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 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 favorite photos and even see what your camera sees and fire the shutter!

I think this camera is the opposite. It feels not great in hand. It feels kind of cheap, empty, and plasticy- like a really hard, plastic. The top and bottom metal plates just feel weird with such cheap plastic sandwiched between them. I bought a third paty grip for it though and it's made such a difference ergonomically! It really feels like a much better camera and much more solid with the grip which adds a bit of weight to it.
The images it makes are AMAZING. The colors are perfect and the photos have the kind of depth and pop that you rarely see outside of film. It's the first digital camera I've used where I was as happy with the image quality as I was with film. I've only used the x100s, Xpro2, d750, d810, and a Canon EOS 5d m3, but these images beat those hands down imo. Those other cameras all great, but they only really take pictures. This camera makes something else. It adds a little bit of magic to the camera. The images have a bit more pop, a bit more life. I feel like the standard j-pegs look a lot like Portra 400, which is one of my favorite color films. I've also seen them resemble Kodachrome when taken with lenses much better than my own!
At first I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it because of how it feels, but I've really fallen for shooting with this camera. I would definitely recommend the third part grip though. I also wouldn't worry about having "only" 16mp. I've blown some of these photos up plenty big. Megapixels aren't the only to poster sized prints if that's what you really want to do.
Since I have gotten this camera, I have not even attached a flash. Flash has just not been needed, even with all of the indoor shots that I do. Post process is a little more difficult since I do not have consistent lighting (especially since last month was December and colored Christmas lights do interfere more than I expected). But still worth the extra time required in post, plus I found that having blues, reds and greens in a shot make for some interesting shots.
Auto white balance is better than any of my previous cameras. Supposedly there are 2 auto white balance settings, but I have not read the manual deeply enough to find the second setting. It is a little warm for Daylight and Cloudy conditions, but tolerable to leave it as is when in post. Auto White Balance does have issues with Incandescent (WAY too warm) and Florescent (not consistent, but may be due to mixed lighting conditions).
Some of the control knobs are not the way that I would have designed them, but still usable if not needing to make adjustments on the fly. On several occasions I have used the incorrect indicator for setting ISO. The decreased light (compared to my other cameras) in the view finder was supposed to help with manual focus, but I do not think was a good feature especially since manual focus in low light is now more difficult since I cannot see it. I did not have plans on using Live View much since it was a feature that I rarely used in the past, but the ease of access to Live View along with the horizon line, I now use it at least 5-10% of the time.
The autofocus area does not reach to the 1/3 points in the frame, which I find odd since that is where I put my points of interest for a photo. Live view does not have this limitation as far as I tell.
Before I purchased, I read several reviews saying that it was not feasible to use heavier lenses with the Df. I found that using my F2.8 28-70mm or my f2.8 70-200mm was not as bad as the reviewers stated. I do miss the extended battery pack for stability.
Overall this is the best camera that I have ever had (previous cameras, D100, D200, D300, Nikon 1 V2).

This is the camera for you. it's for the serious photographer who likes a manual control camera.
I use it with the old manual focus Nikon prime len's, AI and AIS len's, and it works perfectly with them, i have six of them, from 35mm up to 400mm and every one give's very pleasing results.
It can also be used with Af len's as well if you prefer.
It's better suited to slow moving or stationary subjects and is excellent for low light photography, i use it for Landscape and low light and portrait photography and have had some excellent results.
some people say its over priced, but believe me the build quality is very good, its mainly of metal construction, unlike most modern Digital SLR's which are mainly made of plastic.
Don't be put off by the low 16.2 MP sensor, the sensor is from Nikon's flagship camera the Nikon D4, that's why the Df is very good for low light photography and the quality of your pictures will be of excellent quality.
16.2MP is more than enough for most peoples needs, even a Pro photographer.
So this is really a camera for the serious photographer, Amateur or Pro, which would also explain the high price.
Es una cámara fotográfica muy recomendable
