Get a Behind the Scenes Look at the Birth of a Lens

Fujifilm yesterday released a video showing off the process of building an XF lens from start to finish. The video decribes the incredible level of care and attention needed to handcraft Fujifilm’s high quality mirrorless lens system. The detail involved in crafting any quality lens — be it from Fujifilm, Canon, Sigma, or another respected lens source — is worth stopping to appreciate, and this video gives you an inside look at the steps lens manufacturers must take to ensure you get that perfect shot.

Each step of the process is handled meticulously, and the employee comments show a level of dedication usually reserved for fervent entrepreneurs or tech startup evangelists.

It’s always enjoyable to see a high level of pride, care and and technology combine to create something truly excellent.

Give this video a gander, and revel in the beauty and attention to detail. And look out for an exploration of the anatomy of a lens, coming soon to Videomaker.
