New Nikon camera is totally hipster

Nikon's latest DSLR harks back to the days of film with its cool retro design. And there's some cool tech inside too...

Nikon goes back to the future with its new DSLR

The Df is the new Nikon DSLR - but you'd be forgiven for thinking it's a decades-old model. That's because the camera giant is drawing squarely on its heritage, giving the device a distinctive retro body that's based on its old 35mm film cameras.

Featuring the pyramid-style top and classic Nikon typography, the camera comes as either an all-black model, or one with a black and silver finish. Nikon is even offering optional black or brown shoulder straps and cases to complete the nostalgia-tinged look.

It's not as heavy as it looks

Looks can be deceiving of course. The Df certainly not as heavy as the classic models it's based on: it makes use of a lightweight magnesium alloy to weight in at just 710g.

And on the inside, the Df is full of cutting edge camera technology, most notably a full-frame, 16.2 million pixel 35mm sensor. It offers ISO range of 100-12,800 (extendable up to 204,800), a burst speed of 5.5fps, and an AF module with 39 focus points.
