The sad news today: Japanese famous CAPA editor and camera gear reviewer Mr. Hideo Nishihira (西平 英生) has passed away on Sept 15th last week, at the age of 63. See the official CAPA notice here.
Born in 1948 at Japan, Mr. Nishihira is one of the most prestigious camera gear reviewers in Japan and worldwide for his in-depth and yet extensive knowledge plus extraordinary observing power on camera gear. In fact, his reviews on camera gear (Pentax inclusive) had been one of the few most valuable references for camera users in the pre-Internet days.
