    and the reel was often dropped and the film was exposed As a countermeasure this prototype adopts the method of loading an exclusive film magazine that is loaded with film in advance When the first 25 feet was finished to shoot the entire magazine is taken out and turned upside down and loaded again This magazine is very elaborately designed A light shielding shutter was provided at the location of shooting frame and was opened and closed in accordance with the key operation of opening and closing of the cover for film loading Anyway the planned and prototyped 8 mm cine camera at first was a high class model that was very like that of Nippon Kogaku I ve heard that the object of this development project was To provide high image quality of 16 mm professional cine camera with 8 mm cine camera Back to top Change of the policy Such a high class model oriented prototype suddenly made a complete change to a beginner s model like NIKKOREX 8 3 lens turret was changed to only one fixed focus 10 mm f 1 8 lens and shooting speed was simplified to 16 frames per second only Driving by a spring was changed to driving by an electric motor coupled exposure meter to automatic exposure and above all the orthodox appearance to unconventional book shape appearance It is partly due to the cost increase of the first prototype but partly due to the strong intention of development Perhaps there was a man of strong conviction who believes that 8 mm cine camera must be like this and he must have taken a leadership of the development A designer who took part in this development and lately retired at the retirement age recollected In my long experience of development there was no project that had such clear concept like this In fact the basic policy of push a button and high image quality can be obtained by everybody ultra compact and light weight low price simple is the best was never changed to the end and various requests for specifications to add this function and that proposed by his boss and other seniors were all declined It is quite interesting to know why a drastic change of policy like this was made and who was the man of strong belief but to my regret it is unknown However it is sure that such clear concept was favorably accepted by the market NIKKOREX 8 became a favorite model and enjoyed rather large production for that time of 3 000 units per month and its book shape appearance was followed by many other makers and it was typical of introductory model of 8 mm cine camera including a later Fujica Single 8 PI 1965 Fuji Photo Film Back to top The most advanced technologies Construction of NIKKOREX 8 a double 8 reel and the 1 5V R6 AA size battery receptacle are seen In the NIKKOREX 8 the most advanced technologies of

    Rewinding and overlapping For these advanced amateur film makers it was the most dissatisfied thing with the film of Super 8 standard that it cannot be rewound This is used for the technique of overlapping When a movie scene is switched to the next it is nothing interesting if it is simply changed to another With the present video equipment we can enjoy various scene conversions using plenty of image processing techniques such as the change of scenes like turning over the pages of a book or scattering of the image like a mosaic but with a movie camera of that time only such techniques as fade out fade in and overlapping could be made It is fade out that the image is gradually getting dark and finally disappears at the end of a scene on the other hand fade in is that the screen is gradually getting light and the image emerges at the beginning of a scene and this fade out and fade in of the next scene is made simultaneously is overlapping Therefore in the overlapping technique the part of change over is double exposed For that purpose it is required to rewind the film once exposed by fade out to a certain length then the next scene is faded in on that part of the film This rewinding work was difficult with the cartridge of Super 8 Cartridge of Super 8 and Nikon R8 SUPER ZOOM The cartridge of Super 8 originally aiming at the home movie maker had the first priority in the easy loading and the compactness As the film is twice longer than Double 8 the diameter of wound film becomes larger While Single 8 of Fuji Photo Film avoided that by decreasing the thickness of the film base Super 8 of KODAK prevented the cartridge to become large by making the feeding spool and winding spool coaxial The coaxial mechanism of Super 8 is valuable because it also makes the drive system of the camera simple but this structure of cartridge made the rewinding difficult Back to top R patents According to a designer who was in charge of 8 mm movie camera at that time he had heard of users strong request for rewinding repeatedly at the time of attending the contest He was puzzling if it is possible to incorporate the rewinding function in Super 8 cartridge scrutinizing the cartridge from this angle and from another everyday All of a sudden an idea flashed across his mind some day There are feeding film chamber and winding film chamber in the cartridge of Super 8 and when the film is wound from feeding chamber to winding chamber after filming some space is made in the feeding film chamber When moving the film appearing at the aperture for shooting by a finger leaving the drive axle of winding fixed the film could be returned to this space of feeding film chamber as though it was folded in I made it shouted he

  • Nikon | Imaging Products | Best of the Rest / Nikon Family Cousins, Part 20 : Color Video Camera S-100
    8 mm movie camera a unique video camera was completed It was released in June 1982 as Color Video Camera S 100 See Photo 1 together with Portable Video Recorder SV 100 and Video Tuner ST 100 Fig 1 Optical system of S 100 Video camera system at that time was so called a separate type which consists of separate camera and portable video deck and the deck carried over the shoulder and the camera held by hand were connected by a cable And the camera alone was much bigger and heavier than current solid type video camera Moreover portable belies its name some of the early decks were 8 10 kg heavy and when I see in brochure a woman model carrying it over her shoulder with a smile I might have almost shouted it s a lie S 100 approx 1 4 kg SV 100 approx 3 8 kg w Battery Pack VN 1 and CCU approx 550 g In such circumstances it was an immediate requirement to attain a drastic down sizing and light weight in order to spread video cameras to more homes Especially the camera must be made as small as possible as it is held by hand we adopted the optical system in which the pickup tube solid state imaging device like CCD was not practically acceptable at the time was arranged vertically inside the hand grip and the light path from the taking lens was bent downward on its way and focused on the image plane of the tube See Fig 1 CCU Camera Control Unit circuit was separated and was housed inside the Video Carrying Case FV 1 of the deck As the integration of IC was not very large at that time quite different from today CCU alone became quite a volume and weight and it contributed very much to the down sizing of a camera to separate this from the camera body Back to top Optical viewfinder and electronic viewfinder Adopting an optical viewfinder was another feature of Video Camera S 100 Most of home video cameras at that time were equipped with an electronic viewfinder using a small size CRT but it was rather bulky and only a low definition monochromatic image cold be viewed In addition it consumed the power much For Nippon Kogaku that had been setting great value on an easy to view and accurate finder in the development of 8 mm movie cameras it must have been intolerable to provide users with such a poor viewing finder Optical SLR finder Anyway S 100 didn t adopt an electronic viewfinder but incorporated an optical SLR finder instead Owing to a newly developed micro mat focusing screen and a fast f 1 2 taking lens the finder was very easy to view I might have said that it is characteristic of an optical maker but the result was unfavorable Most users chose the electronic viewfinder The function particular with the electronic viewfinder that the optical finder lacks

    of image information corresponding to several hundred to several thousand pixels is converted to electric signal As the signal of only one line is taken entire frame is scanned by moving the material or the sensor itself Can this line sensor be used successfully Fortunately the length of line sensor is close to the size of shorter side of 35 mm 135 film format Then almost 1 1 optical system is to be formed in combination of a Nikon SLR camera body Micro Nikkor lens and bellows attachment Slide copy adapter is arranged in front of the lens and the image of the negative film is focused and that focal plane is to be scanned by moving the line sensor Well this may be all right I made a rough drawing and proposed to the General Manager head of department of Planning Department of Camera Division After explaining the principle I mentioned about the effect It will be a larger merit for the news field that uses cameras of Nikon and it helps the sales promotion of SLR cameras to newspaper companies The General Manager of Planning Department who was listening to my explanation without saying any word so far uttered a word OK let s go The development started with a quick decision in spite of a completely new development Back to top Joint development Though the development was decided to start we encountered so may obstacles after that A team was organized by mechanical and electrical engineers picked up from Camera Designing Department but it was an unknown new technical field To our request to Kyodo News via Mr K of Photo Department for their support they kindly accepted it and their staff members related to photo transmission provided us with various technical information There were so many things to be cleared to send a sheet of photograph via a telephone line about telecommunication line communication protocol method of modulation method of synchronization and so on Everything was indeed a lesson to us everyday In spite of close investigation a lens that fits for use with the equipment was not found among existing lenses and a new lens was to be designed The new lens was decided to be a zoom lens in consideration of a 135 format negative being scanned trimmed The illumination system film holder moving mechanism for line sensor signal processing circuit were added to that and the prototype was displayed at the meeting of Kyodo News and its associate member newspaper in 1982 There we saw the reaction of newspapers that will be users to be and stepped to the next stage Back to top NT 1000 NT 1000 The first prototype was made to the final product with a slight improvement added to the hand written caption superimposing mechanism and we released it as 35 mm Direct Transmitter NT 1000 Photo 1 in 1983 This Direct Transmitter brought about a revolution in the Japanese press world to that time if an event happens

    the products of the time before I joined the company I had to interview seniors who actually took part in the development in order to get such information However I couldn t trace such seniors regarding this Fisheye Camera But I could look into the prototype The camera itself was very simple and the film winding stopper mechanism for instance was very smartly designed It was mentioned about this camera including the circumstances of the development in Digital Archives in this web page please refer to that Back to top Nikon Pikaichi L35AF Nikon Pikaichi L35AF Nikon OneTouch Nikon L35AF released in 1983 was the first lens shutter camera compact camera with direct optical view finder of Nippon Kogaku K K The reason of entering into that market the circumstances of its birth and a unique naming of Pikaichi top notch in Japanese are very interesting Descendants of this camera were much talked about its appointing a popular actress as the TV CF character As recent relatives there appeared even High class compact cameras such as Nikon 35Ti QUARTZ DATE 1993 and Nikon 28Ti QUARTZ DATE 1994 Even now many of descendants of Pikaichi are active in the market Looking such a situation I feel that it s too early to talk about the episodes of Pikaichi as legends As time passes I may have an opportunity to take this up willingly Please let me defer the matter to that time Back to top NIKONOS RS NIKONOS RS The world s first and only SLR type underwater camera NIKONOS RS was released in 1992 Until then divers took underwater pictures with an ordinary SLR housed in the water tight case called blimp NIKONOS RS not only made the blimp unnecessary but it built up its original system including unique interchangeable lenses such as underwater fisheye lens and underwater zoom lens But its life was too short Even now several years after the discontinuation popularity of this camera never falls among divers I believe some time in the future I may talk about the episode about its birth and so on but at the moment I give it up to pick this up waiting for a favorable opportunity Back to top Unique accessories Nikon Speedlight SB 2 At the time of starting this series I put the title Nikon Family Cousins in the sense that I take up cameras out of the main stream so to speak cameras corresponding to a branch family instead of a main family In that sense not the camera itself but various accessories of Nippon Kogaku K K present Nikon corporation may be as it were second cousins There are unique ones among these second cousins Motor Drives that wind up the film by electric power existed from the time of such rangefinder cameras as Nikon S2 1954 and Nikon SP 1957 Many may know about the details of them as they were explained in many books and magazines Likewise Speedlights were also developed early in
