What does a Nikon camera have in common with a DeLorean?

August 31, 2019

I asked myself, what could the DeLorean (as in the car in Back to the Future) possibly have in common with the Nikon F4, F5, D2h/D2x, D800, D3, and the D4 (and, I suspect, many more bodies)?

 

Answer?

 

They were all designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro.

 

 

Nikon created the guts, but an Italian designer designed the beautiful aesthetics and ergonomics that makes up these amazing Nikon camera bodies.
