    3. Just what we need a bunch of people with more money than brains, jump in to run a business that they know nothing about.
    Fujifilm runs companies all over the world including several in North America. One more will be no big deal to them.

    Only if it makes money. I've worked for one of those Fuji America companies on several contracts. While they are perfectly willing to spend the money required to do the job to get the product they want/need, they are not willing to throw good money after bad.

    I suppose if it was a product that was a matter of Fuji's internal corporate pride they would probably go to pretty great lengths to save face, just like many oriental cultures.


    But you can bet they aren't going to spend a dime to save an American product unless it is a profit center for them. Or at least they perceive it can become a profit center.

    We all hope Kodak film is profitable. And if it is, then Fujifilm could add a few bucks to their stash. Fujifilm has some holes in their film line (at least in 120 film). No ISO400 b & w as well as a highly saturated ISO400 color film.
