    Maybe a digital F6? That seems to be the target audience if leaked specs are to be believed. D6 anyone?

    Re: Digital Nikon FM2

    My idealized digital camera for my preferred shooting experience has been an FM2D for years . IE something that recaptures that experience.

    What I've read so far has yet to convince me, but I will hope.

    So far, the closest I have come to recreating that shooting experience has been with the Oly Om-D...

    And especially if we can cock it with a lever and still use it with a flat battery!

    Just like the epson rangefinder that had the lever. I always thought that was a cool idea. Slow down, take A shot...

    But if they insist, I guess I can do without it .

    It would be nice to have a split prism viewfinder though .

    Yes, please

    However, I suspect that more people would like something more conservative. Too few have tried the F6 to appreciate what a fantastic camera it is.

    That might very well turn out to be the name, Vivek, though I have always thought the letter D for digital was an unnecessary part of a Nikon camera model designation.

    The letter F on the other hand designates the mount and is therefore the most meaningful part of a model designation for F-mount cameras, imo.


    @ Lars and Jorgen: don't you think they will reserve the D6 designation for a successor to the D5 ?


    Anyway, what is in a name ...

    It's in my hands again:

    Nikon - Pure Photography #1 - YouTube

    I bought the Fuji 100 because of its retro design - and was really hoping that Nikon would do the same.

    I really hope that Nikon have done a good job on this camera.

    Just found a little pics of it. Did my best at interpolating NCIS style... Look like good form factor, big prism inside maybe an eye-cup or just the prism. Hope the video is done with it too.

    Re: Digital Nikon FM2

    Ok so my first impression based only on the sounds in the video :

    #1 >> Exposure knob clicks.

    #2 >> Shutter cocking sound.

    #3 >> Actuation.


    I think they pushed hard on the "energy saving" point by arming the shutter manually. The hybrid term employed in the rumors can be about that. Either you use it ala old school way in the "low power" mode, either you switch in full power mode and it take the control of the shutter and all (Video, rumored 5.5fps ...).

    Just my wild guess.

    According to NR, it is may be a repackaged D610..... that would be a pity - I really don't like that tight AF cluster.

    Nobody said it's a repackaged D610. The rumor already stated the sensors are different.

    The new post only suggested the AF system is the same as D610.

    The name will be "Nikon DF" | Nikon Rumors

    It's also suggested, that it would support 1:1, 2:3, 16:9 ratio. Imagine, it has a hybrid VF for framing and shooting square. IF that's the case, it would probably support some type of AF technology on the sensor.

    Since the teaser video was not shot using 'Vivid' picture mode, hope may remain alive.

    Although I would get one if it were monochrome, I do not see the odds as being very good. 16mp monochrome would be really very nice!

    A 16mp monochrome is way better than a 36mp "autumn leaves mode" camera (for me), any day!

    So IF this camera uses the D4 sensor or something real similar then I we have an existing spec of - 36.0 mm 23.9 mm CMOS, Nikon FX format, 7.3m pixel size

    As I am keen to get a 18mm to 21mm focal length digital solution the existing Nikon 20mm teamed with a D4 samples will give me an idea of IQ. Does this sound reasonable?

    Yes .

    Before the D800 ,Nikon introduced the Nikon D7000 with an APS-C sensor very similar to the FF sensor used in the D800. If you crop a D800 image to a APS C size .....the images look very similar to a D7000 . I expect that you will be able to do a similar comparison with the D7100 and the D4X(?) which would be a 56MP sensor .

    You may see some improvements in the camera processor (and firmware ) ...newer usually means better . But..I would expect the IQ to be similar to the D4 .

    Re: Digital Nikon FM2

    hmm. I keep hearing about AF and modes and all that stuff.

    A digital FM2 would be grand. Simple, to the point, nothing beyond a meter and the minimum stuff to render a JPEG out of the camera. Like the M9.

    Bells and whistles I got aplenty in the E-M1. They're nice, they do great things, but if I want "pure photography", I want the very least possible. I can live without the film wind crank, thank you, but a battery grip with the MD-12 form factor would be nice.

    It will be nice to see where this is going, if anywhere.

    I'm right with you. Don't even care if you give me JPEGs out of the camera. Don't care about the AF. Even battery grip is optional for me.

    Keep it simple and rock solid as in the FM2.

    Just imagine if Kodak jumped on the retro fad. They could have brought back the digital Brownie. Personally this retro phase is disturbing. It is either because it is fashionable or the only market left for "serious" cameras is old guys. Neither is sustainable.

    I loved my FM, but I don't want a digital version of it. I would prefer something better.

    I have to agree Will, I don't understand the retro thing, want a FM, buy an FM and some film, technology moves us forward so embrace it! I want lasers please, if there's no lasers then I'm not interested.

    Why not 25?

    I already did find my "pure photography" in the current set up I have.

    A 100% crop shows a stereo view of me with it.

    I don't think Nikon has ever called it a digital FM. What is a fact is that:

    - Many of the ergonomic features of "traditional" cameras worked very well, and sometimes better than on their modern, digital counterparts.
    - Most "professional" digital cameras are huge compared to say an F3 and often a challenge to travel with or take for a hike in Scotland.
    - Other categories of electronics have mostly developed into smaller but more powerful units. I'll leave comparisons between the Lumia 1020 and D800 to Ken Rockwell, but it is a paradox that a phone manufacturer can deliver a decent quality 41MP camera with Zeiss optics integrated with a 150g combined telephone and computer (soon with RAW support), while the Nikon weighs at least ten times as much after you mount a lens on it.

    I don't really expect a digital FM from Nikon, but if they can deliver something around that size, and with a simple, mostly mechanical user interface with the D4 sensor and the ability to mount and meter with all Nikkor lenses, it would be a major improvement over anything Nikon has presented until now as far as DSLR bodies go.

    Shields Up Sarcasm Alert!

    Some definitions of pure from the New Oxford English Dictionary as they may apply to the yet-unannounced DF:

    pure |pyo͝or|
    adjective

    free of any contamination; not mixed or adulterated with any other substance or material
    translation "We're moving past the D600 debacle."

    perfectly in tune and with a clear tone
    translation "Shutter sounds nice."

    dealing with abstract concepts and not practical application
    translation "Uh oh!!!"

    without any extraneous and unnecessary elements
    translation "No Nikon branding on neckstraps and pentaprism hump."

    of unmixed origin or descent
    translation "We didn't reuse any *cough* parts from another model."

    wholesome and untainted by immorality, esp. that of a sexual nature
    translation "Features an anti-nude picture control setting."

    I like this "Pure Photography" slogan. It reminds me of something I imagine I had. I never did of course, but that's besides the point

    While I agree on everything, I cannot agree on the D4 sensor. The D4 sensor is already 2 year old design, why would Nikon choose to build this in digital terms "ancient" sensor into such a groundbreaking digital F like camera? Why not just use one of the latest designs with say 24MP? Or why not also come with a 24 and 36MP solution like Sony?

    I think the really shaking news about that new digital F is that it very well might belong to the mirror less club - finally! And that also would create a totally new FF line of Nikon cameras - very well that could be also supporting the just so popular RETRO wave, which all manufacturers are jumping on.

    Don't get me wrong, I also lust for a simple digital camera which is F3 size and allows usage of the arsenal of Nikkor F glass

    Re: Digital Nikon FM2

    Because the D4 sensor is very, very good, it's the sensor of their top model, and it's a Nikon only sensor. I doubt that the target market for the DF is interested in more resolution than 16MP, and 24MP only gives 23% more linear size anyway. Those who need 36MP probably also feel that they need all the bells and whistles of the D800(E) which, if the rumours are correct, isn't much more xpensive anyway.

    I'm only guessing of course, but judging from the 2 videos, I think I start to see where Nikon is aiming with this.

    As for Sony, that's an electronic gadget manufacturer. Anything other than the maximum number of pixels would be unthinkable.

    Jorgen,

    Most "professional" digital cameras are...often a challenge to travel with or take for a hike in Scotland.
    Not in my experience.

    I must admit that I've never hiked in Scotland, although it's still on my list of "Should do". What I do frequently is to get as much camera gear as possible in the carry-on bag with budget airlines. I haven't lost that discussion at check-in yet, but that's partly because I've started carrying m4/3 gear most of the time. It would be nice to be able to take a couple of FX bodies that don't eat up half the allowance.

    Re: Digital Nikon FM2

    From video #3, my guess of the camera size is no larger than 140mm wide by 90mm high. No idea on depth. Obviously this grab is missing the pentaprism housing (which I am including in my estimate.)

    Tasty!
