The Df is a new proposal from Nikon, offering a creative approach to photography. One of photography's fundamental tenets is to search the environment for meaning and then find the right combination of shutter speed and f-stop to appropriately convey it. From the first modern camera nearly a century ago until the recent past, mechanical dials were the favored interface for discovering such combinations, and manipulating them was a skill that became second nature to countless photographers. When Nikon began designing the Df, mechanical operation was the natural choice since it provides the photographer with the tactile pleasure of shooting with precision mechanics. Constant visibility and access to key camera settings reinforces the direct connection between photographers and their cameras, inspiring them to be more deliberate with each frame. In addition, the Df delivers the same image quality as the D4, Nikon‘s flagship D-SLR, but from a significantly lighter and more compact body. Photographers can expect versatile image quality from ISO 100 to ISO 12800 — all without a large, cumbersome camera body. This significantly expands creative opportunities, while opening up completely new ones. This camera fuses the D4 image quality with tactile precision mechanics for pure photography. With your fingers on the controls, you can think about photography differently, and explore your creative intentions more profoundly. With the Df, you are the photographer, not the camera.
