As you know, the Micro Four Thirds system is a standard created by Olympus and Panasonic for compact digital camera.
A lot of attractive new micro four thirds format cameras are born, and they are supported to the young and old, boys and girls camera fans.
We Nikon Kenkyukai members hope a new camera is born from Nikon.
One of the members has already had a new product of Nikon.
We strongly hope for it.
Yes, Hatsu, your hope will be fulfilled.

Mini-finder and Digital Nikon

New Digital Nikon Camera Manufactured by a Member (Hatsu?)

A member talked about the color film in 1929.
We researched the advertisement of the Kodak color film that had been published in the ASAHI CAMERA magazine in Showa 4 (1929).

We are studying about Nikon always ardently

Ryu Koakimoto talked about the film development system in 1950's.
At that time, Kodachrome was not able to be developed in Japan.
Koakimoto was to have mailed the film from Japan to the Kodak film developing lab in Hawaii.
He talked that a cloth bag for mailing was attached to the film.
