    My bad. I guess I'm better at thinking than emoting about this.

    At Fujifilm, photo films accounted for less than 1 percent of the company's total sales in fiscal 2011, down from 19 percent in fiscal 2000.
    I wonder at what point was film less than 50% of their gross sales. In 2000, it was 19%. That's not much. I'm guessing that in 2000, film was a much higher percentage of gross sales for EK. Fujifilm was highly diversified before the great decline of film usage.

    Here's the correct link: http://www.bjp-online.com/british-jo...essional-films

    Fuji discontinued Velvia 50 in 4x5 and 8x10 and Velvia 100F in all formats just a few days ago.

    Doesnt Fujifilm have a glaring hole in it's film product line?

    There is no Ektar type print film in their line. All they have are low contrast portrait color print films.

    I guess the real question is "I wonder at what point was film less than 50% of their NET sales?"

    Trimmed line-up and higher costs for customer?

    F-That

    If a company doesn't market their product, of course sales will slump.

    I think if their sales volume continues to suffer, it will be nothing to do with lack of demand. It will because the companies will push away their current customers.

    You can't just keep trimming your product and charging more to compensate for marketing errors.

    No, rather than Kodak and Fujifilm competing, Kodak concentrated on color print film and ceeded to Fujifilm on slides. Each concentrated on what they did the best.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
