Fujifilm Lens Craftsmanship – How Do You Create a Hand Made Lens

Fujifilm just published an interesting video showing the different stages in the creation of the company’s XF premium lenses.

Manufacturing a modern lens is a complex process which requires advanced tools and very precise work by highly skilled workers. We simply love to watch videos showing the meticulous work that goes into creating high quality optics and this video is exactly what the doctor ordered.

In the past we covered many other videos showing you how different manufacturers develop, build and test lenses. We covered “How Does Panasonic Manufacture Lenses at the Yamagata Plant“, “How Does Sigma Manufacture Lenses (part 1 and part 2)”, “Carl Zeiss – Manufacturing the new Touit lenses“, “How does the Glass for Nikon Lenses is Made” and finally “How Leica Lenses are Made“.

You can find many more videos showing the manufacturing process of photography equipment  on our dedicated “how do they make it” section here on LensVid.
