Meet the engineers behind Nikon 1
We spoke to the engineers who created our new camera system and asked them what Nikon 1
means to them. This is what they had to say...
“If someone takes a surprisingly good photo,
they’re more likely to enjoy it and share it.
Which will inspire others to take, enjoy and share
more photos. That’s the domino effect we wish
to create with this camera.”
Masayo Iida
“Our biggest challenge was how to incorporate
such a powerful engine and sensor into the sleek,
minimalist design… but we did it.”
Shigeki Yagi
(Nikon 1 V1 Mechanical Design Architect)
(Short Movie Creator Software Project Planning)
“To create the 1 NIKKOR lenses we had to imagine
what the camera system of the future should be.
In other words – we had to start from scratch.”
Keiji Moriyama
“Nikon 1 redefines photography. It introduces the
concept of manipulating not just light – but also
time. With a Nikon 1 you can actually go back in
time and see those few moments before, or after,
a photograph was taken.”
Masahiko Inoue
“This is the world’s fastest autofocus system.
People will be able to take shots they didn’t believe
were possible.”
Hiroaki Takahara
(Hybrid AF System Development)
(Product Planning)
“Good photos boil down to composition, timing
and the correct settings. Nikon 1 cameras do it
all. They’ll help people enjoy photography because
every photo will turn out just as they’d hoped.”
Hideo Hoshuyama
(Imaging/Image processing/Image Quality Development)
(1 NIKKOR lens development)
“I think Nikon 1 is a camera capable of new things,
offered by no other camera in the world: one of
those things is Motion Snapshot.”
Naoki Kitaoka
(Development and Design Concept)
“I’m fascinated by the Smart Photo Selector. I helped
develop the algorithms for it, so naturally I was
thrilled when it was installed. As a photographer
myself, I can’t wait to take continuous photos of my
two ten-year-olds. I look forward to not missing
a shot.”
Akihiko Takahashi
(Imaging/Image quality Development)
“I think Nikon 1 will change the way we think about
photos and movies. It’s so easy and enjoyable,
it will become part of our everyday lives.”
Akira Nojima
(Nikon 1 Product Design)
“I would put the speed to good use by capturing the
changing expressions on my children’s faces as they
play.”
Kazuharu Imafuji
(EXPEED Image Processing Engine Development)
“We wanted people to be able to capture the story
around a moment, without complicating the process
of taking a photo. Motion Snapshot makes that
possible.”
Takashi Kuriyama
(Motion Snapshot Development)
“Nikon 1 cameras are so incredibly portable that
carrying two lenses is no problem. Also the shutter
sound is silenced, so it’s perfect for any formal
situation. I would definitely use this camera to take
photos of my family and for my railway photography
hobby.”
Noriyoshi Tachikawa
(CX-format CMOS Sensor Development)

“Nikon 1 has completely changed my view of
cinematography – it’s so easy to shoot moving
targets that used to vanish from the frame.”
Koshi Yoshibe
(Mechanical Design for 1 NIKKOR Lenses)
“I flatter myself in thinking that we created
particularly pleasing hues for the red and silver
models. I like the red model best. Doesn’t it
have a lovely feel?”
Seiji Suzuki
(Nikon 1 Production Technology –
1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6)
