January 9, 2017 — Melville, NY — Nikon began celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2017 with its return to CES. Its latest digital imaging technologies were demonstrated at Nikon’s booth and at areas throughout the show floor.

They also heard from Nikon professional photographers at the Nikon School Theater. Other experiences on the show floor included the return of Project HeliX powered by Nikon and an interactive VR (virtual reality) area featuring content captured with the KeyMission 360.
 
Nikon showcased several new products. They were headlined by the lightweight D5600 DSLR. The D5600 features easy sharing using Nikon SnapBridge technology, a 24.2MP sensor and an intuitive touch-screen, vari-angle LCD monitor.

The Coolpix A300 has a 20.1MP sensor, 8x optical zoom lens, vibration reduction (VR) image stabilization and also SnapBridge connectivity.
 
Since the company was established in 1917, Nikon has cultivated its status as a pioneer of optical technologies. Guided by a corporate philosophy of “Trustworthiness and Creativity,” Nikon provides a range of products and services globally by harnessing advanced opto-electronics and precision technologies.
