In a new video released yesterday, Fujifilm offers a beautiful behind-the-scenes look at the care, attention, and technology that goes into creating each of their Fujinon lenses from start-to-finish.
Although behind the scenes lens manufacturing videos are nothing new, we somehow never tire of seeing the kind of craftsmanship that goes into quality optics.
As Fuji employee Atsushi Hiroki says towards the beginning of the video, “Lenses are extremely delicate and have to be handled carefully, just like they are alive.” And it’s this level of care that the video seeks to show you with panning shots of dust-free environments, high-tech machines and lenses-in-progress.
Check out the video at the top to spend a few minutes in lens-making heaven. And then, if you’d like to see more of the same, revisit this gorgeous behind the scenes video of Sigma’s factory in Aizu, Japan.
