    Hey dude,...you're spending too much time round those 'shrooms. The spores have infected your temporal-spatial equilibrium.

    Seriously though, I support what Gnashings has just said. Why are some people pretending that "profit" is a four letter word. Have you ever run your own business? With this kind of attitude, I imagine it wouldn't have survived for more than an eyeblink. Even a non-profit organisation tries to save money by budgeting creatively. It's about survival & growth/profit. Amongst others, I love Fuji products, and will continue to support them. (and have let them know about it via the recent e-mail campaign)

    TV-CM tells a lot. For my eyes, Fuji seems to be aiming more on printing stage than exposing stage. It is not a matter of "A film vs B film" or "digital vs film", but "home printing" vs "in shop printing".
    I haven't seen Fuji's TV-CMs about their products. I see many many about advantages of in shop printing. Digital has made and is making photography population bigger, shots per person higher. There is a chance for Fuji to keep their imaging business profitable.
    I see Epson and Canon are appealing their printers with advantages of home printing. They are or will be the real competitors for Fuji, I guess.

On the other hand, companies like Kodak and Fuji already exceed their national environmental regulation, and they need no major expense in this regard. Needless to say Fuji has much higher level of emulsion technology than Central European competitors.
    Why do people keep spreading doom an gloom about EU enlargement and Forte and Foma? The only thing they are achieveing is to show their lack of knowledge of how EU enlargement happened, and when various laws and regulations had to match those of EU and be implemented. It is almost as bad as the "the countries they are in are about to join EU, so it will be considerably harder and more expensive to acquire capitals so they will probably go under soon".

    I have a big complaint about Fuji as I don' think their policy of having "Japanese only" films is in any way acceptable.
