Nihon Shashin Kōgyō
Nihon Shashin Kōgyō K.K. (日本写真工業㈱, meaning Japanese Photo Industries Co., Ltd.) was a Japanese camera maker, run by Nozaki Masato (野崎昌人) in the immediate postwar period. It operated in a building near the Kanda station, in Tokyo. In late 1946, it was developing the Orchid 6×6 SLR camera, which appeared in the press in early 1947. Nothing concretely emerged from the project, and all trace of the company is lost after that date.
