the Df’s retro style means it looks like no other Nikon D-SLR
FX -format SLR > £2300, $2750 > www.nikon.com If you want a Nikon that stands out from the crowd (providing it isn’t a crowd of 1980’s film cameras, that is), then the retro Df is just the ticket. Inside it’s very much 21st-century technology, though, with a 16.2-megapixel FX sensor and EXPEED 3 image processor straight from the D4. That combo enables a maximum extended sensitivity of ISO204800, making the Df rather handy for low-light shooting.
For combining nostalgic style with cuttingedge performance, the Nikon Df is our clear winner here.
Upgrade if you own... a conventional Nikon D-SLR and fancy more style, but give it a miss if you want the most for your money.
runner up... F&V HDR-300
This compact LED ring-light shines with both stills and video thanks to 300 LEDs emitting a 65-degree beam of 5600K daylight-balanced light. It’ll all but eliminate unsightly shadows.
