New “Philosophy of Nikkor” video uploaded

Nikon released a new “Philosophy of Nikkor” video:

“Vol. 6 – The Foundation of NIKKOR Lenses” is the sixth in a series of interviews in which those who design and produce NIKKOR lenses, backed by history and tradition, talk about lens design and production from a variety of angles, from the appeal of interchangeable lenses to the lenses that they themselves would choose.

The scene for Vol. 6 is set at Nikon’s Akita plant (Hikari Glass Co., Ltd.), the foundation of Nikon’s production of optical glass. It reminds readers that Nikon is one of the very few camera manufacturers around the world that owns the total production line from glass and machine-component processing to assembly, adjustments and inspections, beginning with careful selection of lens materials for the production of optical lenses. Advanced production technologies and systems are not the only things needed to manufacture high-precision, high-quality optical lenses. The skilled techniques developed by the craftsmen who make the lenses over many years are also necessary. This video introduces the foundation of NIKKOR lenses through interviews with those working at the manufacturing plant. It clearly shows the positive attitude and pride these people feel about producing products that respond to the strict demands exclusive to Nikon, beginning with repeated inspections at each step of the manufacturing process.
