Empowering women in a male-dominated sector such as healthcare and science in general is one of our goals at Fujiflm Europe because we believe in the power of diversity and inclusivity at the workplace.
Therefore, we can proudly share that we welcomed 12 young girls between 12 and 15 years old at our Fujifilm Europe Headquarters in Ratingen, Germany for Girls’Day 2023. The goal was to inspire and motivate the next generation of female leaders to break the gender gap in technical and scientific fields, the so-called STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics) professions.
Girls’ Day is an annual event that aims to increase the proportion of women in male-dominated fields and reduce the shortage of skilled workers in the industry. It is a day that is designed to provide young girls with the opportunity to explore a variety of STEM careers, interact with female role models, and gain hands-on experience in technology and science.
Through small games, test and feel of some of our products, especially those from our healthcare department, as well as a few theoretical background information, we wanted to show these girls what a career in this field could entail. Of course, they also had the opportunity to get an exclusive tour of our Open Innovation Hub to learn more about Fujifilm’s evolution from a camera-based company to shifting its focus to the healthcare sector.
It was not only a new and great experience for us as a company, but also our young visitors have made some unique experiences which might help them to decide which career path they would like to choose in the future.
Machine vision lenses have become an essential component in various industries, from manufacturing to quality control. These lenses allow machines to ‘see’ and capture images with high accuracy and precision. Among the many lens manufacturers in the market, why do people choose FUJINON lenses?

In case studies conducted by Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. and the Tokyo National Museum, the GFX system camera proved invaluable for archiving and preserving cultural assets, valuable materials, and historical artifacts. In addition, photographers have used the GFX System camera to photograph the Gemenefherbak sarcophagus in the Egyptian Museum of Turin, highlighting the camera’s capabilities in reproducing intricate details and textures of historical artifacts.
Preserving the Legacy of Katsushika Hokusai’s Artworks
Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. is a renowned organization that specializes in the digital archiving, restoration, reproduction, and exhibition of cultural assets and valuable materials. Recently, we were privileged to capture the essence of a magnificent work by Katsushika Hokusai from the collection of the Sumida Hokusai Museum. Utilizing the advanced technology of the GFX series, we were able to produce rich and detailed data that not only safeguards cultural properties but also enhances their versatility in various domains.
Preserving History with 400MP High-Resolution Images
“Robe (Kosode) with Autumn Flowers” from the Tokyo National Museum collection features intricate designs painted by artist Ogata Kōrin in the early 18th century. Kōrin, born in Kyoto, later went to Edo (present-day Tokyo), where he stayed with the Fuyuki family, wealthy lumber merchants. As a token of gratitude, he painted the designs on the wife’s kimono. Before the garment underwent conservation work to prevent further wear and tear, we were granted permission to photograph it in ultra-high resolution. Archiving valuable cultural properties is crucial for future generations, and to this end, we employed the 400MP Pixel Shift Multi-Shot for the GFX system to create an accurate archive of the garment’s condition before restoration work began.
Egyptian Museum of Turin and the Power of FUJIFILM GFX100
After testing the new features of the Studio and searching for a subject to showcase the full potential of the new Firmware, we turned to the Egyptian Museum of Turin, the oldest museum dedicated entirely to the Nilotic civilization and considered second only to the Cairo museum in terms of value and quantity of artifacts. We had the opportunity to photograph the sarcophagus of Gemenefherbak, a vizier from the XXVI dynasty (664-525 BC).
The sarcophagus’s surface is strikingly smooth and velvety, despite being made of a very hard, dark green stone called “bekhen stone” extracted from quarries in the eastern desert of Egypt. Gemenefherbak is depicted on the cover of the sarcophagus, wearing a small image of the goddess Maat, symbolizing justice. His chest is protected by a winged scarab.
After two “reproductions” of the sarcophagus were made, we used post-production to cut out the front and back of the sarcophagus and placed the images side by side on a black background. The result was a stunning visual representation of an ancient cultural artifact, capturing its intricate details and historical significance.
The GFX System camera and its accompanying accessories provide a versatile and unparalleled imaging solution for commercial image-making applications. With its unmatched image quality, pixel-shift technology, and flexible workflow options, the GFX System camera is an indispensable tool for professionals who demand the best.
