Retro Nikon Classic


The Nikon Df and AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition Lens.

Nikon recently introduced its new Nikon Df full-frame DSLR, which looks like an old film SLR but is fully digital (except with no video capture mode). Of course, the Nikon Df, is not designed for everyone. It’s aimed at a particular type of photographer, one who likes to shoot digital photography but wants a camera in a classic, pre-digital and pre-video design. This distinctly retro camera, which resembles a Nikon FM or FE film SLR from the 1970s or 80s, is sure to appeal to those shooters who appreciate not just the look of older, classic cameras but the simple control of its manual operation system and a thin yet durable and easy-to-grip body for superior mobility. With assets that recognize the advantages in both state-of-the-art digital technology and analog control, the Df sets aside video functions to focus solely on creating gorgeous high-resolution photography. It is available in a black body and a silver body -made from magnesium alloy making the Df the company’s thinnest and lightest DSLR, with a AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Special Edition lens kit. Cool!
