Nikkei: “Nikon sees 30% profit boost on demand for panel-producing gear, camera maker’s cost-cutting and reforms show signs of working”

Nikkei  just published a new article ahead of the Nikon’s yearly financial results announcement titled ” Nikon sees 30% profit boost on demand for panel-producing gear, Camera maker’s cost-cutting and reforms show signs of working “: “Nikon’s operating profit is expected to jump 30% to 70 billion yen ($640 million) in the current fiscal year ending March 2019, as its structural reforms bear fruit and capital investment in places like China lifts sales of its large display-making equipment.” And also: “Nikon will have a monopoly on next-generation equipment capable of making large flat-panel displays.” (pictured above) Nikon’s sales are also expected to be up mainly because of its precision equipment business. Here is a quote from Nikkei on the camera business: “Meanwhile, the market for Nikon’s mainstay single-lens reflex cameras is shrinking. But the company aims to offset the decline with structural reforms it began in fiscal 2016

Copying photographic film with the Nikon D810 and a shoe box

Copying photographic film with the Nikon D810 and a shoe box by Anthony McKee ( www.anthonymckee.com ): While many photographers are keenly waiting for the new Nikon ES2 film digitising adapter set to arrive in stores, I have been making use of my own Nikon film copying kit that I put together a while ago using a Nikon D810, a 105 micro lens – and a shoebox. I was asked a couple of years ago by a friend if I could digitise some old slides for her, but I lacked one rather essential piece of equipment: a film scanner. Over the years I have had regular access to film scanners, from state-of-the-art drum scanners through to smaller desktop models, but over time the interfaces and software drivers have all become obsolete
