Welcome to the Fujifilm House of Photography in the heart of London, UK. Opening its doors at the beginning of 2020, only to close them a few weeks later due to a crisis that dominates our daily lives. Nevertheless, this project has proven to be a great success and welcomes thousands of visitors every week.
Fujifilm House of Photography, located in the heart of Convent Garden, London, is the UK’s first experience center around photography, celebrating all aspects of taking, making and sharing photos. Three floors are dedicated exclusively to Fujifilm products, including our instax cameras and printers, as well as our X and GFX camera systems, lenses, accessories and more.

This project is one of Europe’s largest capital expenditure investments in the semiconductor materials supply chain over the last decade, and will see a 4000m² expansion of the facility, increasing production capacity for core components and chemicals required for semiconductor manufacturing, including cleaners, polyimides, developers, and solvents.
The project will also see the addition of on-site solar panels, as part of Fujifilm’s Sustainable Value Plan 2030. Once complete, the expansion is expected to create 25 new roles, including production and lab roles, technical and academic functions, appealing to a broad spectrum of candidates with STEM academic and professional backgrounds.
Fujifilm’s investment in electronic materials has been growing globally, with nearly €1 billion in planned investment to meet expanding demand. Our Electronic Materials business is the largest business in Fujifilm’s Advanced Materials segment, and this latest expansion marks a significant milestone in accelerating its growth.
According to Hans Vloeberghs, President & Managing Director, FUJIFILM Electronic Materials (Europe) N.V.,
“This expansion is an important part of developing the European semiconductor ecosystem, which will be crucial for society in delivering cutting-edge future technologies across the fields of automotives, energy management, healthcare, business, and current and future digital industries.”
We are proud to announce that we have won 23 iF Design Awards for our products, marking yet another milestone in our commitment to creating exceptional designs that reflect both beauty and functionality. The iF Design Award is one of the most prestigious international design awards, and our products were recognized among 11,000 entries from 56 countries and regions around the world.
Our commitment to design excellence has paid off once again with the 23 iF Design Awards. Our dedication to creating new product values will continue to drive our design development, ensuring that each new product we release is not only visually stunning, but also reflects our commitment to ease of use and comfort.
At our company, the pursuit of design excellence is a core philosophy. We believe that design development should leverage superior functionality and performance, and that every product should be designed with portability and operability in mind. These values are reflected in each of our award-winning products.
All award-winning products include a wide range of business fields, from mirrorless digital cameras to cosmetics and medical devices. Our design team is known for not only creating visually stunning products, but also products that achieve advanced performance and excellent operability.
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?
One reason is the wide range of product categories that Fujifilm offers. They are the only comprehensive lens manufacturer handling lenses in a wide range of sizes, materials, and shapes. Their lenses range from large to tiny aperture lenses, lenses for 8K and 4K high-definition TV broadcasting, interchangeable lenses, and cinema lenses for digital cameras. Professionals in the broadcasting industry worldwide recognize the high performance and quality of FUJINON lenses, as evidenced by their several Engineering Emmy Awards.
Another reason is the advanced technologies that Fujifilm has accumulated over its more than 80 years in the business. The company has been manufacturing high-precision lenses since 1940 and has since developed numerous products that lead the world. Fujifilm’s expertise in manufacturing, processing, assembly, and other technologies allows them to deliver consistent high resolution performance in a wide range of installation environments.
Fujifilm’s global network is also a notable advantage. With sales and production bases in more than 30 countries worldwide, the company develops its logistic marketing from a global perspective and provides quick and tailored local services at each base. This ensures that customers receive the best possible service, regardless of their location.
The total number of FUJINON Machine Vision Lenses produced is a testament to the brand’s quality and reliability. With more than 1.1 million lenses produced, the company continues to evolve technologically and address customer needs with a variety of products. Fujifilm lenses manufactured by bringing together the company’s state-of-the-art technologies are used at production and quality inspection sites all around the world.
The “Wonder Photo Shop” is a place where customers can come and create their own personalized photo products. The store offers a wide range of services including photo printing, album and book creation, personalized photo gifts and accessories, and even photo workshops. It is a one-stop-shop for all your photo needs.
With the rise of digital photography and the decline of film photography, the art of printing photos has somewhat been lost. The process of printing and displaying your photographs has become more difficult and less accessible, with many people opting to simply store their pictures on a computer or phone. However, the “Wonder Photo Shop” powered by Fujifilm Europe has created a new era of photo printing stores, bringing back the joy of printing and displaying your photos.
One of the most unique features of the “Wonder Photo Shop” is the Fujifilm instax range. This range offers instant film cameras and printers, allowing customers to capture and print their memories in seconds. The instax range has become increasingly popular over the years and is now available in many variations and colors, including the latest instax mini Link printer, which connects to your phone via Bluetooth.
