    Not shure if this is the right subforum. Please move to the right place if needed.

    I know Fuji is much more chemistry than only film, so I'm shure they made various foils before. So I don't know how this new market entry would influence film production. If at all.

    The product probably shares a similar design, but not necessarily the same materials. But if they are produced the same way it could be good if Fuji already has machines up and running.

    I don't expect it to make any difference in film production aside from the fact that as long as Fuji is doing something potentially profitable they might not axe the products we love.

    Ha! Two years ago I said Kodak should have entered the solar technology field and got laughed off the thread.
