Nikon Df Body and AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f1.8G Special Edition Lens - Silver

Experience the power of pure photography with the Nikon Df. 

Boasting a retro-styled body and the same 16.2-megapixel FX-format sensor as Nikon’s flagship D4, this camera expresses a passion for photography in both form and function.

Richly detailed photographs with smooth tonal gradations are achievable in any light, thanks to a wide dynamic range and light sensitivity that is extendable up to an incredible ISO 204,800 (equivalent). Together with the highly sensitive AF system, flawless metering, and fast performance, the Nikon Df may look like a classic Nikon 35mm film camera, but it’s packed with the latest technologies.

  • 16.2-MEGAPIXEL FX-FORMAT (FULL-FRAME) CMOS SENSOR  Equipped with the same image sensor as Nikon’s flagship D4, the Df offers exquisitely detailed images with smooth tonal gradations.

  • ICONIC NIKON DESIGN  Boasting looks inspired by classic 35mm Nikon film cameras and technology from Nikon’s latest professional D-SLRs, the Df is dedicated to pure photography.

  • FULL-FRAME PORTABILITY  Experience the creative thrill of FX-format photography wherever you go, thanks to a compact body that weighs approximately 710 g.

  • Highly sensitive autofocus with Multi-CAM 4800 39-point AF system

    Delivers fast and precise coverage across the frame. Sensitive down to -1 EV and compatible up to f/8. Four AF-area modes—including 3D-tracking AF—deliver sharp results, whether your subject is off-centre, moving fast, or acting completely unpredictably. In addition, the contrast-detect AF system boasts enhanced operability, accuracy, and speed when shooting in Live View.
  • Elegant mechanical dials

    Comfort meets control with knurled mechanical dials that make operation simple and secure. The dials let you set ISO sensitivity, exposure compensation, exposure mode, and release mode independently, enabling you to access all parameters relevant to stills photography without the need to access the camera’s menu.
  • Compatible with non-AI NIKKOR lenses

    A unique collapsible metering coupling lever lets you attach even vintage non-AI NIKKOR lenses to the Nikon Df. When shooting with a non-AI lens in A (Aperture Priority) or M (Manual) mode, full-aperture metering (equivalent to that of AI lenses) is possible via simple camera settings.
  • Spot White Balance metering

    Enables highly accurate manual white balance settings by letting you quickly assign a Spot White Balance to the specific area of the frame you select during Live View shooting. The target you define can be moved around using the multi selector, allowing you to quickly acquire the present data for even distant subjects without the use of a grey card.
  • High-performance optical viewfinder

    The glass pentaprism viewfinder offers approximately 100% frame coverage and 0.7x magnification, as well as a DX Crop Mode with viewfinder marking.
  • Renowned Nikon build

    Built to withstand severe conditions, the camera boasts tough yet lightweight magnesium alloy top, bottom, and rear covers, and is weather-sealed to the same degree as Nikon’s D800 D-SLR for enhanced resistance to moisture and dust.
  • PHENOMENAL LOW-LIGHT PERFORMANCE  With ISO 100–12,800, extendable up to 204,800 (equivalent), the Df delivers finely detailed images with minimal noise, even when you shoot under challenging lighting conditions.

  • Durable shutter unit

    The highly accurate shutter unit has been tested to 150,000 cycles, with a maximum shutter speed of 1/4,000 s and flash synchronization at up to 1/200 s.
  • Large 8 cm (3.2-in.) 921k-dot LCD monitor

    With wide viewing angle and reinforced glass. Delivers bright, crisp image playback with a wide colour reproduction capacity.
  • Quiet Release Mode

    Perfect for discreet photography, the sound of the camera’s mirror return mechanism is noticeably reduced during the burst.
  • Dual-axis electronic virtual horizon

    Roll (horizontal inclination) and pitch (forward or rear inclination) information can be confirmed via the LCD monitor, and roll information via the viewfinder.
  • Scene Recognition System

    The camera’s image sensor and its 2,016-pixel RGB sensor provide precise data to the Scene Recognition System, which optimises exposure, autofocus, and white balance immediately before the shutter is released for sharply defined images.
  • Crop Mode: DX format

    The DX Crop Mode can be automatically enabled when a DX lens is attached. When shooting in Live View, the Nikon Df helps you with image composition by offering optional assist gridlines for 1:1 or 16:9 image ratios.
