If you have been following the rumors, word on the street has it that Nikon has a new camera set for an announcement in the very near future in the form of the Nikon DF. The rumors claim that this device is an upcoming hybrid mirrorless full-frame system by Nikon and supposedly will be styled rather retro-ishly, akin to that of the Nikon FM2. Well in the latest teaser video from Nikon, the camera in all of its glory has been spotted and it turns out that the rumors might be right after all, and that the Nikon DF will indeed bear a close resemblance to that of the Nikon FM2, as you can see in the screenshot above. Unfortunately this is hardly the clearest picture we’ve seen, but if the rumors are to be believed and that an announcement is on the 5th of November, we guess we won’t have to wait much longer to find out!
Other rumored features of the camera includes a similar AF system found on the Nikon D610 and also how there is a possibility that the camera might not come with video recording features, a very odd move given that the majority of cameras offer video capture functionality these days, so for Nikon to not include that feature would seem like a disadvantage. Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but check back with us tomorrow to see if the rumors of the Nikon DF pan out!
