Over the past week we have seen and heard rumors that Nikon is planning a full-frame hybrid mirrorless camera, and the latest tease came in the form of a video which supposedly will lead up to the official announcement that is currently rumored for November. In any case according to the folks at Nikon Rumors, they have been tipped off about the possibility of the name of the upcoming device and that will be known as the Nikon DF, with the DF standing for “Digital Fusion” which is a pretty sounding name. We’re not sure if this is the actual name itself or if it will be the name of the lineup of similar cameras in the future, but it’s definitely a name we’ll be taking note of.
While the exact specifications of the camera remain somewhat of a mystery for now, the rumors are claiming that the AF system used in the Nikon DF will be similar to that of the Nikon D610 and will feature 39-points. The camera will also reportedly have settings for 1:1, 3:2, and 16:9 aspect ratios, sport a full-frame sensor, sport a retro-like design along the lines of the Nikon FM2, and interestingly enough might omit the video recording function entirely, although we’re not sure why. Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more info along the way.
