NikonNikon 90th anniversary : This summer Nikon UK will be joining in with the celebrations around the world to mark Nikon’s 90th anniversary. Founded on July 25th, 1917, Nikon has become one of the world’s leading camera, imaging and optical manufacturers. “Nikon has maintained an unwavering commitment to the study of light with the corporate philosophy, ‘Trustworthiness and Creativity’,” said Michio Kariya, President of Nikon Corporation. “As the awards won at the recent Technical Image Press Association show, the Nikon name continues to represent photographic excellence for European photographic professionals and consumers alike.” Nikon is also introducing a special 90th Anniversary logo to mark the occasion.
Nikon 90th anniversaryNikon anniversary - History of Nikon
Nikon, originally known as Nippon Kogaku, K.K., or Japan Optical Co., was formed on July 25, 1917, by the merger of three smaller optical firms. The company has a long association with Europe, starting with eight German technicians who arrived in Japan in January of 1921. Beginning as an optical firm, Nikon manufactured microscopes, telescopes, surveying equipment and optical measuring devices. In the 1930’s, Nikkor was adopted as the brand name for the acclaimed line of photographic lenses. In 1946, the company began producing a 35mm rangefinder camera with an interchangeable lens. The camera was the first to be given the name Nikon.

Nikon Rangefinder
The success of the Nikon Rangefinder was followed by the introduction of the now-classic Nikon F single-lens-reflex (SLR) camera in 1959. The durable Nikon F, built with the technology leadership and precision that characterizes Nikon products, quickly became the choice of professional and discerning amateur photographers alike.

Nikon digital cameras
Nikon has followed up its success with the Rangefinder and Nikon F with many other popular and critically acclaimed products such as compact cameras, Nikonos underwater cameras and manual and autofocus SLRs. With its world-renowned optics and lenses leading the way, Nikon has seamlessly made the transition into digital photography with the popular compact COOLPIX line and acclaimed DX format digital SLR cameras like the D2Xs, D200, D80, D50 and the new D40X.

Nikon 90th anniversary
Known for 90 years as one of the finest optical manufacturing companies in the world, Nikon has achieved a level of optical excellence unrivalled by any other glassmaker. With millions of customers, Nikon has earned its status as a premium brand and remains a major force in the market for optical and photographic equipment, as well as precision instruments.
