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. :D
Very interesting, thanks. Got a real kick out of the "lens calculator." What a beast! :)
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!
Very interesting. Thanks.
The first time I saw that I was at Konica and not Kodak. They used less automation but the same methods.
This is the german Zuse Z-22 computer used at the Schneider works in 1956:
^Neat'o. Thanks for the video and Zuse Z-22 info
