On the day of July 27, 1917, three leading optical manufacturers merged to create a comprehensive, fully integrated optical company known as the Nippon Kogaku Tokyo K.K. – presently well-known as Nikon Corporation. Nikon is a Japanese global corporation that is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan; they specialize in optics and imaging products. After six decades, the growing company has become a manufacturer of optical lenses as well as equipment used in cameras, binoculars, microscopes and inspection equipment. In the height of World War II, Nikon grew to nineteen factories and 23,000 employees strong as they supply items like binoculars, lenses, bomb sights, and periscopes to the Japanese army.
Nikon’s basic concept is to incorporate design elements from their former brand symbol, which exemplify trust and quality, the new brand symbol aims to express Nikon’s pursuit of infinite possibilities within the domain of light: starting from research, to design and manufacturing, to the way they serve their consumers and the relationship they have with them. It transports an unleashing of the power of imagination translating them into actual products as well as services for their consumers.
The Great Nikon
Nowadays, the most popular Nikon products are their point and shoot, and SLR/DSLR cameras that are widely used by amateur and professional photographers alike. Nikon ensures that their camera possesses a quality like no other, features that keep getting better, and an amazing megapixel count that produces good imagery. Their price ranges aren’t that bad either, considering that you are paying for a well-known camera brand. There is no use questioning Nikon’s quality as they really do deliver on their promise. Nikon’s SLR/DSLR cameras can have as much as 24.2 megapixels, an ample-sized LCD display, and features such as the panorama mode, a full HD video recording, an expandable ISO, and more!
Not only does Nikon provide photographers – professional or not – with great cameras, they also offer quite an extensive range of camera accessories such as lenses, rechargeable batteries for your Nikon SLR/DSLR camera, LCD monitor covers, and speedlights (external flashes). Most accessories are made to make your Nikon experience even better.
