The Nikon Corporation has been producing innovative products and technologies for almost 100 years (Nippon Kogaku K.K. was established in 1917). As one of the top camera and lens makers today, it’s always interesting to reflect back on some of the vintage photography gear that they’ve produced and promoted. Here are a few vintage Nikon advertisements from the 1950s and 1960s that may bring back some memories for some of you.
