- Parts Manufacturing Group Leader,
Sendai Nikon Corporation
- Mr. Inomata joined Sendai Nikon Corporation in 1977, was assigned to what was then the Mechanical Department, Manufacturing Division, and was engaged in manufacturing F3 camera parts. He went on to plan camera parts processing, design commissioned processing tools and develop methods to improve productivity, before assuming his present position in 2001. His favorite camera is the Nikon FE. "It was the first camera I bought soon after I joined the company and is still precious to me. I use it mainly at family events such as field days and vacations."
