Self timer ata kung di ako nagkakamali. Basta pag ginalaw mo yan may red dot yan.

Yes, selftimer with 10s delay. There's also a blinking red LED infornt to indicate selftimer mode once the shutter release button is pressed
Kapag mahal ang camera, siempre mahal ang parepair

wala,e. basag na yun hobby ng mga birdWatchers dito...bawal na magpost ng labanos :o :o :o

nilalangaw daw yun Df...sa totoo lang mukha naman disente yun camera,e...sa 110K parang mahal lang siya ng 10K, so tama lang yan sa 100K

isipin ninyo, nasa 48K ang X-pro1 dito.
pag naging FX yan, imagin ninyo kung magkano yan lalabas. isa pang taga maningil yang Fuji. ang mahal ng lens. pero pikit mata ko silang susuportahan pakonti konti para makatulong ako sa mga nagtatrabaho dyan sa Laguna.

currently, hindi ko pa ma justify mag X-pro, X100s at X20 combo. dahil kahit hindi ko talaga main job ang photography, kasama pa rin yan sa trabaho ko.

aaminin ko na kapag kalat ang AF point niyan, kahit na 5 or 11 lang ang AF points dyan kakagatin ko pa rin yan sa presyong 110K. kahit na walag video at iba yun battery. meron naman akong ibang camera para diyan

sana nga ginamit nalang nila yung lumang 11pt AF System ng D200, accurate naman yon. kahit pa yung 5pt AF ng D70 mapababa lang yung presyo! antay mo nalang bossing bumaba ang presyo, wag lang sana syang bumaba dahil may diprensya diba ;D

kumpol kumpol pa rin yan.

kunsabagay nun panahon ng F100 at F5, ganon din kakumpol ang AF points ng camera. pero siyempre iba na ang panahon ngayon,ano. kung nagmirrorless na lang sana sila hindi pa naging problema yon.

tingin ko panandalian ito. para lang unahan ang canon na lumabas ng ganito. in 1-2 years time may mirrorless na talaga ang nikon na F-mount :o :o :o

I am not surprise why the pre orders are much lower compared to the introduction of the D4 and D800/E.  With the introduction of the D4, D800/E, D600 and D610, most full frame users do not have a need for the Df since the current FX line up addresses just about everything that the general crowd needs.

So, that leaves some of the film users and possibly people who are looking for a D4 high ISO performance at a lower price tag, which is what makes me curious and interested with this camera.  The target market will definitely be a lot smaller.

Hahaha. I have the glasses but not the hair nor the t-shirt and most probably not the Df either.

Another possible reason why Df is not so popular:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304672404579183643696236868

from the link (copy and paste):
Declining sales of high-end cameras and lenses are raising an alarming question for companies like Canon Inc. 7751.TO -0.32%  and Nikon Corp. 7731.TO -3.63%  : Could the proliferation of camera-enabled, app-heavy smartphones be crushing not only the simple point-and-shoot, but premium models as well?

This year, shipments of what's called "interchangeable-lens cameras"—high-end models that let users swap out different lenses—are diving suddenly after years of robust growth. Most of those are digital single-lens reflex, or DSLR, cameras—the bulky models used by professional photographers and enthusiasts.

Research firm IDC expects shipments of such cameras to fall 9.1% to 17.4 million units from 19.1 million units last year.

During the past few weeks, Canon and Nikon—two of the world's biggest makers of high-end cameras—both lowered their forecasts for sales in the fiscal year ending in March. Major lens maker Tamron Co. 7740.TO -1.18%  , seen as a bellwether for the market, sold 22% fewer interchangeable lenses in the first nine months of this year than it did a year earlier, forcing it to lower its profit outlook last week.

Just what's behind the decline is unclear. Canon, Nikon and Tamron point to a weak global economy and inventory buildups.

"We are seeing tough figures at the moment, but I don't think this will last forever,'' said Nikon Chief Financial Officer Junichi Itoh, at an earnings news conference on Thursday. "There still is potential demand, and I think China is the key."

But the example of Lie Fhung suggests consumer tastes could be changing too. The Hong Kong-based artist and graphic designer says she now rarely uses the Canon DSLR camera that she bought five years ago. Instead, Ms. Fhung, 44, takes most of her photos with her iPhone, and satisfies her urge to manipulate the images with a bevy of photo-editing apps.

When the editing process is complete, she posts her snapshots straight from her phone to photo-sharing app Instagram, where she has nearly 1,600 followers. Ms. Fhung says she has no plans to replace her aging Canon.

"I like using different apps to play with the texture of photos," she says. "It's my hobby."

This wasn't supposed to happen. Camera makers have argued that although smartphones and mobile devices have decimated sales of cheap, compact cameras, premium products shouldn't be affected, since they offer a level of control and picture quality that a smartphone's tiny lens and sensor can't replicate.

"Taking photos with smartphones and editing them with apps is like cooking with cheap ingredients and a lot of artificial flavoring," says Canon spokesman Takafumi Hongo. "Using interchangeable cameras is like slow food cooked with natural, genuine ingredients.''

But other market watchers say there are signs the popularity of mobile devices could be eroding sales in the cheaper, "entry" part of the high-end lineup.

Christopher Chute, a digital-imaging research director at IDC, says he's finding that some consumers are choosing to spend money on smartphones and tablets rather than good-quality stand-alone cameras.

Died-in-the-wool camera buffs may continue to replace their gear, but the potential loss of some newcomers would be a serious issue for the industry, he says.

As more consumers evaluate gadgets based on software and how well it connects to the Internet rather than hardware, the benefits of high-end cameras may become less obvious, he says. "Using software, you can literally create effects of different kinds of cameras," Mr. Chute says.

Even lens maker Tamron has acknowledged a potential problem, although it doesn't blame that for the recent decline in sales. "Smartphones pose a threat not just to compact cameras but entry-level DSLRs as well," general manager Tsugio Tsuchiya said in a phone interview.

On Digits
Are Camera Apps Enough for Photo Enthusiasts?
Some analysts say the impact on high-end cameras from smartphones and apps is exaggerated. "Whenever the market declines, people tend to try to come up with structural reasons," says J.P. Morgan JPM +4.47%  analyst Hisashi Moriyama.

Camera makers have argued that people who get hooked on photography through smartphones and apps could later move on to purchase better cameras, as they become more serious hobbyists.

Still, the pessimistic view that smartphones are hurting even interchangeable-lens cameras won't go away unless sales start picking up firmly again, says UBS Securities analyst Ryosuke Katsura.

Shares of Canon, which two weeks ago said it expected to sell 8 million interchangeable-lens cameras this year, instead of the 9 million it forecast in July, have declined 7.3% since January, even as Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 stock index gained 37%. Nikon's shares have fallen 29% this year.

In August, Mr. Katsura lowered his digital-camera market forecasts for this year and the next. Mr. Katsura doesn't think smartphones will kill stand-alone cameras, but he isn't completely ruling out the possibility.

"The industry is at a turning point right now, so no scenario is impossible,'' he says.

hindi ko masasabing maliit ang Df, maliit lang ng bahagya sa D700, pakiramdam mo D610 ang hawak mo. kung magpapaliit lang sila ng camera sana nilubusan na, inalis na yun mirrorbox since yan ang nagpapalaki talaga sa SLR,e.


nikonDf_002 by mrBabaero, on Flickr
uy, chicks! ang kinis talaga ng beauty niya. iba na pag maganda ang hangin, hindi naalikabukan ng dumi mula sa diesel ng jeep :o :o :o


nikonDf_007 by mrBabaero, on Flickr
interesado sana ako nun una dito,e. pero nang magamit ko, wala lang. nothing special. yun AF niya supot pa din pero hindi nakaka inis gamitin sa DF kumpara sa D610 kahit pareho lang sila. di ko alam kung bakit...
