Nikon has just announced the Df -- a new retro style full-frame (FX-format) sensor camera. Physically resembling classic Nikon camera systems like the F, FM, and FE, the Df is packed with the best features from top of the line Nikon cameras across its product lines...

The Df also boasts continuous burst shooting at up to 5.5 frames-per-second (fps) with AF engaged. The camera has an impressive 100 to 12,800 ISO range, which is expandable to an impossible ISO 204,800 (can't wait to review this specification). Picture Controls allow users to customize the way the camera filters various colors. Built-in HDR (High Dynamic Range) combines two to five exposures into one image with an enhanced tonal range -- basically, you get to see the brightest brights and the darkest darks. Users can capture still images in JPEG, TIFF or RAW file formats.

The new Nikon Df is compatible with all sorts of optional accessories and lenses. The optional WU-1a allows the Df to quickly and easily share photos and video on social media sites like Facebook. Also, for long time Nikon owners, get ready to pull out Dad's old NIKKOR lens from storage -- the Nikon Df is compatible with AF, AF-S, DX, and AF-D NIKKOR lenses as well as classic Ai and non-Ai NIKKOR glass.
