In Memoriam—Henry Froehlich

Endearing. Friend to all. Dedicated. Gentleman. Honest as the day is long. These are just some of the descriptions that come to mind at the contemplation of the passing of Henry Froehlich, the retired Chairman of the MAC Group (formerly Mamiya America Corporation). To borrow a phrase from Tom Brokaw, we like to think of Henry as an influential member of the Greatest Generation of the photo industry.

Sir Edmund Hillary, 1919 – 2008

January 11, 2008 | By Staff
Sir Edmund Hillary was a beekeeper, not a photographer. The New Zealander sealed his place in history when he became the first man to climb Everest, the world’s highest mountain, in 1953. Widely considered one of the 20th century’s greatest explorers, Hillary’s unwavering spirit of adventure and commitment to the environment are part of what defines our mission here at Outdoor Photographer. The late Galen Rowell, famed nature photographer and OP columnist, knew Hillary and mentioned him in his columns. While conquering Everest is perhaps Hillary’s defining moment, he went onto lead many other expeditions to the far corners of the world while devoting himself to a variety of environmental causes and humanitarian efforts.

MELVILLE, NY, AUGUST 9, 2006 – Nikon Inc. (www.nikondigital.com) today introduced the new 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor lens, a 4.3x zoom lens that is ideal for telephoto shooting opportunities. It incorporates many of Nikon’s most advanced lens design attributes such as Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) and Enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR II), in a design engineered for use with both Nikon DX format digital and 35mm film SLR cameras. With a high-powered 70-300mm focal length range, the lens is ideal for sports, action, wildlife, travel and portrait photography, among other telephoto applications. When used on a Nikon DX format digital SLR, this lens approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm lens on a 35mm SLR camera.“Nikon’s range of Nikkor lenses with Vibration Reduction technology has grown substantially and the new 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor lens is another excellent addition, offering both Nikon digital and 35mm SLR photographers an advanced high-powered zoom lens in a surprisingly compact, lightweight design,” said Edward Fasano, general manager for Marketing, SLR Systems Products, at Nikon Inc. “High quality lens design requires a challenging blend of art, science and, of course, photographic experience. With the new 70-300mm AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor, Nikon engineers have again met that challenge, producing a lens whose optical performance delivers clarity and contrast typically found only in lenses costing substantially more,” he added.
