    Thank you for the link -- it was enjoyable to watch. I sorely miss vertically integrated companies and the high quality products they produced which, in my opinion, cannot be consistently matched with outsourcing. I also miss 20-bladed diaphragms like the one shown.

    I don't miss formal work attire.

    Very interesting, thanks. Got a real kick out of the "lens calculator." What a beast!
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    Wow ... it's really a staggering operation. What has happened to Kodak since then?

    I've always wondered what "tooling" the Russians carted off to Kiev after the war. I imagine they were machines such as these. I can see why it took years to set up.

    Thanks for posting!

    Loved that part too! That must have been groundbreaking at the time!

    ...The calculator can do in several weeks what used to take as long as a year....

    Very interesting. Thanks.

    The first time I saw that I was at Konica and not Kodak. They used less automation but the same methods.

    Lens Computing:

    This is the german Zuse Z-22 computer used at the Schneider works in 1956:

    Interesting. Thanks!
    The Zuse Z-22? I think there's an app for that now...
