Nikon launches CES 2022 Special Website
January 6, 2022
TOKYO – Nikon Corporation has made the decision not to attend CES 2022 in-person, held from January 5 to 7, 2022 in Las Vegas, due to elevated concerns surrounding the COVID-19 Omicron variant after extensive consideration.
Information regarding the products and technologies that were planned to be exhibited on-site will instead be posted on a dedicated website below.
Please take a look at Nikon’s cutting-edge technologies.
Introducing the products and technologies that were planned to be exhibited at CES 2022.

Light is around us. It’s intangible. By learning how to control it, the human race has achieved unparalleled wealth and development in our society. For over a century, Nikon has been pursuing the same goal. By endeavoring to elevate precision to absolute levels, we have made a variety of cameras and lenses that can capture the world in intricate detail. Our semi-conductor and FPD lithography systems, microscopes, and measuring instruments have helped advance modern life significantly. Through these innovations, we have acquired technologies to process materials at precision levels beyond what the human eye can perceive, while establishing and honing the ability to process objects without applying mechanical power. From now into the future, with the role of SDGs paramount, Nikon is ready to go beyond the status quo and apply our expertise in fields where solutions for CO2 reduction, labor shortages, and healthcare are in immediate demand. All inspired by the control of light, our mobile riblet processing, AI-enhanced robot vision, and state-of-the-art imaging products will help advance the quality of life for people all around the world.
CES 2022 Photography
Nature is a great source of wisdom that we learn from to make breakthrough engineering technology. Through the evolution of life, shark skin has formed a microscopic structure with a pattern of detailed grooves called “riblets”. This adaptation has enabled modern sharks to become powerful swimmers who expend little energy. If we apply these benefits to man-made products, riblet technology can make a significant contribution to world sustainability. For example, when applied to aircraft and gas turbines, the technology helps reduce friction resistance with fluids, improving fuel efficiency and leading to reduced CO2 emissions. Riblets can also be applied to wind turbines to more efficiently convert the abundant natural resource of wind energy into electricity. With riblets applied, a drone would be able to carry heavier payloads to more distant destinations. Unlike conventional machine manufacturing that demands skilled and experienced labor, Nikon uses laser beams both for measurement and machining for automated high-precision material processing, delivering riblet processing in a variety of applications to make positive impacts for society.
The marriage of robotics and vision brings forth a paradigm shift in manufacturing. Nikon’s robot vision can make robot motion extremely fast, precise and flexible. By leveraging the optical and precision technologies we have cultivated over the years, we are helping contribute to the evolution of robotics.
Robotics technology is essential in resolving a variety of increasingly difficult challenges such as manufacturing automation and labor shortages. However, limitations in vision have meant conventional robotics have been unable to demonstrate their full capabilities. With this in mind, Nikon combines laser, x-ray and optical measurement technology to create a kinetic vision system far superior to the human eye. Beyond the conventional robot hand’s ability only to operate as instructed, robots with Nikon’s robot vision can respond to unexpected events in such a flexible manner that they appear to be alive. This superior vision will boost productivity and elevate manufacturing to a whole new level.
Nikon will further evolve robot vision and drive a paradigm shift to keep the industry sustainable.
Ultimate imaging experience (the Z series)
Z 9 – Unstoppable – CES 2022 Camera
The Z9, as Nikon’s first flagship mirrorless camera, brings long-awaited professional reliability into its category while rewriting what’s possible in image-making across the board. A great leap forward in autofocus performance, a revolutionary electronic viewfinder that eliminates blackout, and a 4-axis vertical/horizontal tilting monitor offering freedom in shooting angle redefine what you can capture. Its 8K UHD video with the world’s longest recording time of up to 125 minutes, without overheating problems, lets you push your boundaries further than ever. Whether you aim to shoot sports, wildlife, fashion, movies or other disciplines, the Z 9’s speed, power, quality and ease of use will help you go beyond your limits in every situation.
Z fc – Capture your iconic moments
Photography is not only about the outcome but about enjoying every step of the process. In an age when everything changes rapidly, the Z fc was introduced to savor the joy of the creation process further. Inspired by the designs of classic Nikon cameras, the Z fc lets you control it with tactile dial operations. By slowing down to take each picture, you can discover precious, simple moments that might have been overlooked in busy modern life. Nikon’s latest mirrorless imaging technology will transform your everyday moments into something truly iconic.
NIKKOR Z lenses
Largest mount. Abundant light. Ultimate imaging experience. The Z mount system is the rich and solid foundation for ever-growing imaging potential. Every NIKKOR Z lens is designed to bring a clear difference in your experience both for photography and videography. High resolution all the way to the edge of the frame, amazing sharpness even at wide open apertures, and depth of image achieved through natural and beautiful bokeh – all these characteristics work to enrich the visual experience. As many professionals attest, once you discover what’s possible with NIKKOR Z lenses, you can’t go back to your old aesthetic standards.
The NIKKOR Z lens lineup is scheduled to expand to a total of 36 amazing lenses by the end of 2023.
