Today is Nikon's 100th anniversary. Founded on this day in 1917 as Nippon Kogaku K.K., the Nikon Corporation has transformed from a manufacturer of precision optical glass into one of the most iconic photographic brands in the world. Their camera legacy began in 1948 with the Nikon Model I and continues on to this day. And regardless of your opinion of Nikon today, the past 100 years are certainly worth celebrating.
The festivities has been going on all year, with videos, a dedicated website, a series of special edition products, posters paying tribute to the company's most iconic cameras and a lot more, all released this year under the "100th Anniversary" seal.
