Against type, during the Uber Bowl I gave the Nikon Df a second chance as an event camera. I had to give it another chance to see if my views would evolve and change. I am in the process of deciding of how to update my photography gear. I am sticking with Nikon and need to decide on a second full frame camera.
Over some coffee and some conversation about the Nikon Df, a question came up. How effectively could it be used for event photography? In my review I mentioned it would be a decent camera for that type of photography. With permission I decided to use it in my biggest week of event photography to date, the lead up to a really big football game in New Jersey. It took place in the beginning of February 2014. We can’t say its name because due to some contractual things with my day job. I wanted to put the Nikon Df in a real world working situation.The Nikon Df is not the most popular new camera on the market. Once you get beyond lack of shutter speed and lack of video, is it a good camera?
