At Photoion Photography School London, we love it when a new bit of kit is released, so are naturally buzzing about the new Nikon Df release.

Inspired by time-honoured Nikon 35mm SLR design, the camera aims to facilitate the technological needs of the modern day photographer seamlessly.

Nikon’s Df includes the same 16.2-megapixel FX-format (full-frame) CMOS sensor found in the flagship D4 camera, ensuring you achieve rich colour and image integrity shot after shot.

The camera is a light and smaller-size full-frame DSLR that offers users more control over things like shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, release mode and exposure mode independently, exposure compensation.

Users are able to capture images at approximately 5.5 frames per second and is compatible with the SDXC and UHS-I standard memory cards, on top of the Eye-Fi cards.

Staying up to date with technology, the model is the first Nikon digital SLR that is also equipped with a collapsible metering coupling lever, which allows photographers to make the most of the fantastic range of Nikon lenses available.

Managing Director of Nikon India, Hiroshi Takashina said: “The New Nikon Df leads Nikon’s innovation of providing advanced imaging capabilities, without having to compromise on the form factor.

“The Df is made for Photo enthusiasts who want to expand their creative horizon with a camera that offers high image quality of an FX-Format and superb portability. We at Nikon continue to set new benchmarks in the world of photography.

“The new Nikon Df impeccably combines remarkable features of Nikon’s milestone cameras and highlights exceptional imaging technology in a compact form factor.”

The camera weighs 710 grams and features a 3.2 inch LCD monitor with a phenomenal resolution of 921,000 pixels.
