Wall Street Journal has published a surprising movie on the Fujifilm instax boom. “Fujifilm’s instax camera is back in the spotlight after nearly two decades, thanks to a growing taste for analog, especially among young buyers. Fujifilm Holdings Corp. said it expects to sell a record 5 million units of the instant-film camera in the fiscal year ending March 31, compared with 1.4 million of its digital cameras. And it sees strong growth for the instax next year.” the Wall Street Journal writes. “We aim to sell at least 6.5 million instax cameras next fiscal year,” Go Miyazaki, director in charge of Fujifilm’s photo imaging-products division, said in a recent interview.” See the video here.
At drupa 2016, being held in Duesseldorf, Germany, from 31st May to 10th June, Fujifilm will outline how its wide ranging technologies will add value to print operations in the commercial, wide format and packaging market segments, and will explain its vision relating to the digital evolution of print production. One emphasis is on world leading inkjet technologies, brought together under a new brand name “FUJIFILM Inkjet Technology”, to deliver class leading quality, productivity and performance. The second is a focus on conventional technologies, products and services to optimise traditional print processes, provide resource savings and improve profitability, and in the process help printers minimise their environmental impact.

Among Fujifilm’s many unique technologies is one that makes the invisible visible. In fact, there is only one product in the world that has realized this technology and made it commercially available: Prescale.

Prescale is already an important tool in a wide variety of industries and applications, such as Automobiles, Smartphones, and Food Packaging. Born of proprietary Fujifilm technology, Prescale will continue to find wide use in many industries and applications.
