    Fuji is commited to film

    Press release from Fuji after Konica Minolta withdrawal from photo business

    http://home.fujifilm.com/news/n060119_2.html

    "Silver halide photography, which is fundamental to photography, has advantages over digital in such areas as power of expression, long term storage capability, reasonable prices, easy handling and a highly established and convenient photo development and print infrastructure.

    We intend to continue our silver halide photography business and to further cultivate the culture of photography, and in so doing, continue to support our customers and retailers and all those who enjoy photography."

    Long live Fuji

    Great news! I hope you don't mind but I just posted this over on the RFF. They have a lot of pessimists over there and they need cheering up!

    Fuji definitly has alot going for them. The frontier puts them smack in the middle of the digital world and all the frontier consumables are traditional.
    art is about managing compromise

    They certainly make some fine color films and papers and have a hand in some instant films in case Polaroid gets into more trouble.

    Any one try their premium B&W paper? It's available in Japan and through Megaperls, but I don't know about anywhere else.

    Its Likely Fuji are in for the duration, its because its the film most people use, so they can still lots in a declining market, its like Ilford in B&W.

    And, since from some reports I have read, their digital products are not doing very well, they have nowhere else to go right now anyway.

    Said tongue in cheek with a bit of truth to garnish it with.

    Now all they have to do is get some good professional motion picture products out there. Hollywood does not seem to like their offerings very much.

    I wish Kodak could act like Fuji in this regard. A full truth here! Makes EK look really bad.

    The thing that matters is that you have faith in what you are doing and communicate that to your customers, so they can have faith in you. Internet age marketing 101.
