Leaked Images of New Nikon Df Camera

By Hanssie on November 4th 2013

As the world waits for the announcement in a few hours for the much anticipated Nikon Df camera, the first images have made it onto Nikon Rumors a few minutes ago. The leaked photos possibly crashed the popular rumors site, but now they’re back up. As we wait for the official announcement, feast your eyes on this little beauty.

It appears that top dials offer ISO in 1/3 stops, and shutter speeds in whole stops, with an option to use the rear control dial for 1/3 stop shutter speeds.  This last thing should make the camera MUCH more usable for any wedding or portrait photographers who are considering this camera.  One can only guess how aperture is controlled on this camera, however a mysterious dial / button on the front of the camera (next to the logo) is probably used for this function.  All in all, it looks pretty sexy, …but how usable will it be in the real world? We’ll find out soon enough!

    Let’s wait for the full specs, but D4 sensor in this is tempting :) the price leak from amazon was $2746 body and $2990 with 50 mm lens :)

    Quick Question: What is the 1/3rd step setting on the shutter speed dial? How does it work. The above photograph of the silver DF top view shows the camera in manual, set at f/5.6 and in the lcd a shutter speed of 1/125th.

    I don’t remember a 1/3rd step setting on my old Canon A1, but that was a long time ago.

    I have to say, I love the idea of having a camera I can set-up by physical dials again (using my current glass).

    Thank you,

    Jay

      Never mind, it just clicked. 1/3 step will put the shutter speed control back to the command dials, like the current DSLRs in 1/3 steps, rather than the stops on the physical dial.

    My pants are on fire! I can’t wait to see the specs. And something to compare its size with.
    I am drooling over the possibility of reviving all my manual focus AI/AI-S lenses…

    I thought they said they’ll have an aperture ring on the new 50/1.8…

    Wow that looks stunning. and all the dials, I think as well as it being a great camera if you want to control everything easily, it looks like it would be good to use to teach people (or yourself) about shutter speeds exposure, ISO, etc…

    I personally love the looks but I dunno if everyone will be a fan. Have any prices been leaked yet?
