Fujifilm at 79

2013-01-28 4

Early last week, Fuji Photo Film Co. marked its 79th year of existence since it was established in Japan way back in 1934.

Fuji Photo Film Co., or more commonly known as Fujifilm, was established in 1934 to be the first Japanese producers of photographic film. But what started as just a simple company that produces photographic, motion-picture, and X-Ray films, Fujifilm has expanded to optical glasses, lenses, and both medical and digital imaging equipment throughout the years, becoming a formidable force against its Western rival, Eastman Kodak.

To us analogue lovers, Fujifilm is more known and beloved for its line-up of film like the slides (Fujichrome) Velvia, Provia, Astia, and Sensia, as well as their color negatives (Fujicolor) Reala, Superia.

And let’s not forget, the Fuji Neopan series, and of course, the fun-loving Instax series of cameras and instant film.

    @jabuka Awesome! Fortia was only released in Japan, right? :)

    Thank you. I don't know Fortia was ever sold outside of Japan because it was (seasonal) limited production film.
