Nikon 100 Anniversary

That's the name of the new book by NHS member Uli Koch.

2017 will be the 100th year of Nikon.

The front cover and web link:

In USA the distributor is camera books.

Great Holiday Gift!

Nikon 100 year anniversary goodies.

Nikon introduced a new website for the 100 year anniversary:
http://www.nikon.com/100th/

And not to be far behind, they also introduced a bunch of goodies to celebrate the century mark.

http://www.nikon.com/100th/anniversaryproducts

Example:


Quote:
Nikon 100th Anniversary
Miniature Nikon F Camera
The Nikon F.
It is the genesis of Nikon’s flagship models, and has set the standard for SLRs in the world.
It achieved unprecedented performance and reliability by concentrating Nikon’s optical and precision technologies into a single point, including proprietary standards such as the Nikon F mount in use even today.
The Nikon F, which continues to be endeared by many camera enthusiasts, has been faithfully recreated in 1/2 scale.
And to top it off, what better way to celebrate the anniversary than showing some prototypes in one's own museum?

Enjoy,

Kiu

Thanks Kiu,
I just bought the 100 Anniversary book from the US distributor.

I don't know about the 1/2 scale F. Might be cheaper and more useful to buy a real Nikon F.

Was hoping for a 100th Anniversary Df2, but that does not seem to be in the offing.

Bummer.

I was hoping the "Nikon F 2017" model wouldn't be a miniature!

How about a modern Nikon meter stuffed into a Photomic FTN housing. I would probably pay a crazy price for one.

I don't need a miniature F, I have ten of the full size ones. Joe

Looks like the pre-orders are opening up for these overpriced 100th anniversary items if you have money to burn

The Nippon t-shirt looks like the only item I'm even considering.

$139.95

Hard to resist, I can resist the 3 lens set for 8 grand much easier.
