e-FotografijaNikon assembly plant tour at e-Fotografija : Our good friend and DIWA member Matjaz Intihar from e-Fotografija has visited the factory of Nikon when he was attending the international press conference in Japan. Matjaz shot some very interesting pictures during his visit where he shows us how the production lines look like and what kind of processes the new Nikon D3 undergoes before it is shipped. The new Nikon D3 is Nikon’s top D-SLR packed with the latest technologies and innovations. The Nikon D3 comes available in November 2007, but is already a very popular topic among the forum activists and a much discussed topic among professional photographers as well. The Nikon D3 is all about speed and sensitivity.

According to Matjaz: "First, we were given coats and hats, making us look like bakers, and then it was off to shutter manufacturing. We went through the whole process of shutter assembly and their testing. Surprisingly, this is still very much manual work - there are some Sanyo chips that are attached automatically, and then it's off to manual assembly with precision tools. The shutters seem to be assembled primarily by women. And all the time, you can hear shutters going off."

Nikon assembly plant tour - Sensor and Shutter
Matjaz continues: "The production lines we visited were extremely interesting. A Nikon D3 consists of about 2000 parts, and it takes one worker about 80 minutes to assemble. However, while the Nikon F6 is still assembled by one person alone, the D3 includes some pre-manufactured assemblies, such as the sensor or the shutter.”

Nikon assembly plant visit - Experience and Accuracy
“Holding a camera now is a completely different experience. I'm fully aware how many people were involved in its manufacturing and how important quality control is. It's the quality control that's the most important part of the overall camera experience, and this has always been Nikon's forte. When digital photography finally passes the current obsession with megapixels and noise, it'll be back to the way we tested film cameras - shutter precision, metering accuracy and so on, the things that really matter for image quality." concludes Matjaz.
