People are likening cameras to time machines because of its ability to freeze a moment in time and bring you back to it whenever you want. Nikon might be using that philosophy for their brand-new FX-format camera. The Nikon Df features a 16.2 megapixel CMOS sensor that’s bigger than your average, entry-level clicker. But that’s not what you’ll instantly notice about this new kid on the block. The Df is housed in a classic, retro body with the prominent pentaprism and top cover that makes it instantly recognizable. The ‘Nikon’ font is of course done in the old-fashioned way, to maximize the retro appeal. But it’s not all old-school because the Df will carry a 39-point autofocus system that’s light years ahead of the film cameras that this digital version takes inspiration from. At the top plate, the controls will be very familiar to those who have shot film in the past, with the dedicated dials for ISO (ASA for film) and exposure compensation. Unlike film cameras, the Df allows you to check your shots instantly, through the 3.2-inch LCD at the back. It will also allow you to upload your shots through the optional wireless adapter. Going along the new retro camera is a retro 50mm f/1.8G lens to complete the look. The Df will be available in silver or in black, as body-only or with the new lens. It’s still an F-mount camera, so all your other Nikkor lenses will be compatible with it. $2,750+.
