Tools that inspire us to use them, that stimulate creativity, and bring us pleasure as soon as we pick them up, are more than just a means to an end for their owners. They have an emotional value that has a positive influence on the work being done. Their owner can be confident that they have made the best possible choice. NOVOFLEX creates tools like this for photographers.

Tools with features that show that they were made to create something of value and which are the outcome of a design process that has one principal aim: to further the science of photography and to perfect the results that can be obtained. Just as photographers strive to achieve the best possible picture, NOVOFLEX works to design and produce tools that will support them in their quest. Tools that can help overcome obstacles and make the impossible photo possible. NOVOFLEX’s think tank department refines ideas to make the perfect tool for the perfect picture even better.

On Christmas Eve every year, a group of reindeer carry the sled on which Santa Claus rides with lots of gifts. According to a collection of poems written by Clement Clarke Moore, all of the reindeer have names, one of which is "Vixen." The company, Vixen Co., Ltd., is named after this reindeer, the messenger of happiness. Vixen was founded in 1949 as the integrated manufacturer of optical devices such as astronomical telescopes, binoculars, and microscopes.

During the corporate history, Vixen released the world's first astronomical telescope with an automatic go-to system. Vixen's technology for making astronomical telescopes is also applied in makings of binoculars and microscopes. It has lead to the creation of new devices like the 'digiscope' system, which can take photographs of images obtained by an astronomical telescope or a microscope with a digital camera. As a leading manufacturer of these products, Vixen will continue to improve the technology for making excellent products.
