The name Nikon is synonymous with superb optics and groundbreaking cameras. A world leader in photography for its revered Nikkor lenses, cutting-edge digital cameras, including the multi-award-winning D-SLR series, and high-performance 35mm cameras such as the Nikon F6, Nikon has been the first choice of professional photographers for decades. In fact, Nikon has been behind more Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs than all the other camera brands combined.

Nikon's Coolpix digital compacts have received more awards and top rankings than any other consumer digital cameras, its SLRs have been used in several decades of NASA space programmes, and the company is the proud purveyor of a string of photographic world firsts – including launching the first aspherical SLR lens, the first genuine wideangle zoom, the first AF zoom-micro lens, the first underwater autofocus SLR and the world's first professional SLR to use autofocus.

This record of innovation and achievement owes much to the fact that Nikon is the world’s only major optical company to control and manufacture every aspect of its glass-making business, allowing it to fine-tune its Nikkor lens specifications, quality and performance. The latest developments include the environmentally-friendly Eco-glass, which is being used in all new consumer lenses from 2007.

Find out more about all aspects of Nikon's extensive product portfolio – from consumer products, such as cameras, lenses, flashgun systems, scanners, software and accessories, to industrial products, including microscopes – on the Nikon website, at It also has details of Nikon's extensive training programme, based at the company’s UK headquarters in Kingston-Upon-Thames, Surrey and three regional centres in Leicester, Manchester and Glasgow. Workshops and seminars are held throughout the year, covering a comprehensive range of topics from the basics of digital imaging to getting the most from a particular camera, whether as a novice or a professional.
