As mentioned yesterday, on our way back from the trip we stopped in San Rafael, in the place we ate they had footage playing from home movies of the late 50’s to the 70’s. In Haight-Ashbury we stopped at some vintage stores. Really amazing ties from the 20’s to the 90’s. On the way back home we watched a documentary on Silicon Valley from the 50’s to the 70’s. One thing we noticed about all these cases, they had quality and class. My friends and I come from growing up in the 90’s and 00’s where things are cheaply made, and fashion as a whole lacks class. But talk to anybody about products from decades ago or go take a look at the products; Well-built with class. My friends and I are trying to really bring what we call vintesh into our lives. Which brings the class of vintage mixed with professional and fresh. Check out the earlier post here.
Anyways time to finally get to the point. Yesterday Nikon announced a camera which pays tribute to it’s roots. Modern technology in a classy body. You can read the full press release here, however here are some interesting specs. The Nikon Df is 16.2-megapixels with a Full Frame FX-format CMOS sensor inherited from Nikon’s professional flagship D-SLR, the D4. The large 36 x 23.9mm CMOS sensor is praised for its ability to produce amazing image quality in a wide variety of lighting conditions. ISO ranges from 100 to 12,800. Features a 3.2-inch LCD Display and Glass Pentaprism Viewfinder. Also worth noting unlike my cameras of today this does not shot video, rather the focus was on photographers. The Nikon Df will be available in late November 2013 in the classic Nikon silver and black color schemes. The price of the Df (body only) will be $2,749.95.
