The Essence of "Pure Photography": Nikon Df
« on: November 05, 2013, 11:06:02 AM »
very intriguing for a camera priced 50% more than a 24mp, with Video function D610. it has to have some new tricks for its price or everyone is just paying for the retro looks

a D4 sensor at half the price.

DF (d4 sensor + usable 12,800 ISO) + noct 58mm f/1.2 = night vision street photography
what is certain in this world is uncertainty...

so its basically a hybrid of the D4 sensor, D610 AF system and shutter mechanism perhaps, weather sealing of the D800 and the body of the F2 or F3 :)

i thought meron hybrid VF kaya it was called hybrid :D i just find the camera too thick. para siguro sa mga film shooters mas madali mag set with those dials and everything pero kung sa mga nasanay na sa digital, baka mag fumble sa kaka set ng mga knobs at dials :D

Ano kaya iniisip ng Nikon nung development at pricing ng Df?

So the D610:
-Has the better sensor (24 vs 16 even DxoMark says the 24mp sensor is better with low light 2980 vs 2965 despite smaller pixel size, so downsampling to 16= even better?)
-Has a pop up flash that allows commander mode for speedlights
-Has 1 more SD card slot
-Has better battery specs (1900maH vs 1230maH) though the DF paper rate is 1400 vs 900 for the D610? Smells fishy
-Has a movie mode
-Is only 55grams heavier, half an inch thicker
-Has a better grip area

Am I missing something? 750$ for the "retro" look and the ability to mount 1950s-1960s lenses?
750$ is enough to buy an AF-D 35/2 and 85/1.8
A few more $ and you get the amazing Sigma 35/1.4
You could even get a D800 on rebate and a used FM kit for the same price

Malaking letdown nga, ok lang naman sana yung 2750$ na pricetag kung may magandang feature na tutulong sa paggamit nung mga lumang-luma na Nikkor primes

Akala ko performance hybrid, aesthetics lang pala

sisihin naten yung mga teaser videos :D

i guess these are for those rich people or former pros who just want to sit back and enjoy the pure freedom of being just a hobbyist. going back to their roots if you will. same probably as some who buy Leicas after purchasing a dozen high end gear for so long and got tired of the technology.

Hybrid of the preAI and post AI era...maybe it is just about it.  Nothing more to expect....maybe a lot will buy it. It will take great pictures here and there and everywhere.

The dam that holds the Nikon fans together is now leaking (it's been leaking for a longtime). The fact is, a lot of us have tried testing the other rivers. We bought a second body like mFTs, Nex,etc. Something we don't usually do before. I have done it too. A lot of us are not looking at Nikon anymore. Well , it is not to say that we can't use our current Nikon to take great photographs . We still can and we will still do for a long time. Nikon needs to plug those holes before the one big rush and prevent the MICs from marching on.

The Nikon Df is one good camera with a great sensor. I will look at it when it is available but I won't expect myself to GAS on it.
