DSLR Hands-On Preview: The New Nikon Df Offers a Full-Frame Sensor and a Distinctly Retro Style But with No Video Capture Mode

DSLR Hands-On Preview: The New Nikon Df Offers a Full-Frame Sensor and a Distinctly Retro Style But with No Video Capture Mode | HDSLR | Scoop.it

A few days after the U.S. "fell back" and ended Daylights Saving Time for the year, Nikon turned back the clock in its own way with a new camera announcement: the distinctly retro, 16.2-megapixel, full-frame Nikon Df, which looks more like a classic Nikon film SLR than any digital SLR we've seen so far. The camera, which has been widely leaked in the last few days, uses the same FX-format (35mm-sized) sensor as Nikon's flagship professional D4 DSLR but resembles a Nikon FM or FE film SLR from the 1970s or 80s.


I got some hands-on time with the new Nikon Df at a press briefing, under NDA, during PhotoPlus Expo last month, and found the camera to be an intriguing but slightly befuddling new DSLR for professional photographers and enthusiasts. Unfortunately, I was not allowed to take photos of the Nikon Df cameras shown to me during the briefing, so all the product images included here have been provided by Nikon.

Tomorrow's Roundtable - children addressing social issues - an indigogo campaign

Tomorrow's Roundtable - children addressing social issues - an indigogo campaign | HDSLR | Scoop.it

A documentary series that creates community campaigns addressing social and environmental issues using solutions imagined by children!


We live in a time of massive global challenges, where changing climates, exploding populations, shifting paradigms, and accelerating levels of scarcity push every natural and man-made system on the planet closer to collapse. As a result, in every sector, in every city, thousands of projects focus on sustainability and preserving the environment, on innovation and revolution. Others focus on increasing health, justice, or education. Still others work towards rights for children, animals, and all heritages... the list goes on.

planetMitch's insight:

An interesting idea - creating a "cause-driven documentary series" to look for new ideas and possible solutions to issues affecting our society, yet instead of the 'big thinkers,' they're going to talk to children.
