Final Nikon DF Teaser Up, Recaps Previous Teasers and Leaves Us Wanting More

The last Nikon DF (if it is indeed called that) teaser is out and ready for you to take a look, but honestly, there’s not much left to see. The 4th and 5th teasers gave us our best look at the upcoming camera, and so you would think the 6th would be all but a reveal.

A Bohemian-looking man stands in a picturesque Scottish glen. Wild grasses sway in the wind, green hills loom to either side and moody, dark clouds drift along above. The man takes in the scene and fiddles with a camera around his neck. We hear satisfying mechanical clicks as he sets the aperture and shutter speed.

Another satisfying snap as he trips the shutter, and the screen fades to black. Then a brief flash of the front of a lens, and the words “Pure Photography” in dainty, white lettering. Read more…

Round 2: Nikon Releases Another Teaser for Its Upcoming Retro Full-Frame

Whether or not the camera will live up to the hype, we won’t know until we’ve gotten our hands on it. But if there’s one thing Nikon is doing right regarding the soon-to-be-released retro-styled full-frame, it’s building a crap load of hype.
