The company history began in 1928, when the Nichi-Doku Shashinki Shoten ("Japanese-German Photo Pompany") was founded. The first camera manufactured by this company was the "Nifcalette" (NIFCA being an acronym for Nippon Foto Cameras). The company name changed several times: in 1931 it became Molta; in 1937 it became Chiyoda; and in 1962 it was changed again to Minolta. In 2004 Minolta merged with Konica, forming the Konica-Minolta company, which discontinued camera production in 2006.
