Because of the number of posts I published in the past few weeks on the upcoming Nikon DF camera, many readers have missed some of the rumored specifications. Here is a recap of what we know so far - if you have some additional information, you can contact me anonymously here:

  • The new camera will be called Nikon DF which stand for "Digital Fusion"
  • Nikon FM2 like design, but with a larger pentaprism
  • Most likely be available in two colors - all black and silver/black (a.k.a. as Panda version)
  • Standard Nikon F-mount
  • Pentaprism viewfinder (meaning the camera will not be mirrorless)
  • 16.2MP 36x23,9 full frame sensor (same as in the D4?)
  • The AF system of the Nikon DF will be most likely the same as in the D610 with 39 points
  • SD memory card
  • 2016-pixel RGB image sensor
  • 9-cell framing grid display
  • 3D color matrix metering II
  • Native ISO range: 100-12,800 (incl. ISO 50 and ISO 102,400)
  • 5.5 fps for up to 100 shots
  • 3.2" LCD screen
  • Expeed 3 processor
  • Battery:EN-EL14
  • Dimensions: 143.5 x 110 x 66.5mm
  • Weight: 765g
  • No video recording capabilities
  • The camera will meter even with non-AI lenses down to full aperture
  • The camera will ship with a new special edition Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens to match the look/design of the body
  • The camera will have physical controls and excellent build quality (which explains the 765g weight)
  • Nikon calls it a "hybrid" camera - not sure what exactly they mean with that
  • The Nikon DF will have settings for 1:1, 3:2 and 16:9 aspect ratios
  • The announcement will be on November 5th right on time for Le Salon de la Photo show that will take place in Paris (November 7-11, 2013)
