Here’s a couple things you might have not known about Nikon.
Were you aware that camera’s produced by Nikon during the post -World War II era that are still around are now collectors items? Or the company works in pioneering technology for the absolute perfect focus, so time lapses can be captured by microscopes for cell mutation? I didn’t.
Nikon has a large military background.
Its lenses were sold by Nikon when it first started out.
Nikon, initially, was founded by several revolutionaries that were optical, their combined knowledge made some of the finest lenses on the planet. Due to their standing for awesome lenses, Nikon was the only one of two cameras to continue making detachable and adjustable F model lenses following the coming of auto focus technology.
Nikon has an identifying history that is complex.
Nikon’s name is fascinating. For those that can read some basic Japanese, you’ll discover that the firm writes its name a writing system the Japanese developed for words that are foreign. However, this landed them at first in legal trouble. So, Nikon switched the name of its contested line of cameras to Nikkor, which was a westernized version of the shortened form (Nikko) of the business’s first name… yeah, that is beginning to get confusing, huh? Ever since then, the Nikkor brand name has been used by Nikon to sell its lenses.
In conclusion Nikon rangefinders went up against Leica and other major rangefinder brands Zeiss, and 50s on the Nikon F series became the go-to Nikon rangefinder camera for a strong three decades.
