    Some Good News

    It's been awhile since Fuji has made a statement like this. I found this in an article linked below.

    "With smartphones eating into digital camera sales, Fujifilm has been focusing on the higher end of the consumer market with cameras such as the pricey but popular x100. The company announced it will stop production of movie film from this March but insists it won’t abandon camera film. No matter how small a part of the business it forms today, ceo Shigetaka Komori says that film will continue, coexisting alongside the Astalift, the x-ray machines and all the other Fujifilm businesses."

    It is good news.

    Shooting Nikons I have "played with" Canon shooters about their preference for buying cameras from a copier company. Now I can self deprecate myself when shooting Fuji saying that I get my film from a cosmetics company.

    That quotation from Fuji CEO is taken out of context. Reading other statements by him on this matter, I understand something as Fuji manufacturing consumer film as long as this being profitible. But nothing of the kind of putting any efforts in product development and such.

    That is what they say today. New circumstances, new boss, well hopefully, none of that will happen.

    IIRC, Komori said in another interview, "As long as just one photographer is still using film, we will keep producing it."

    Now he's really gone and painted himself into a corner. I've already decided that I'm never going to die...
