Fujifilm Film Sales
I've read (dont know where) that Fujifilm's sales were down to 1% of their revenue. Yet their recent public financial report seems to contradict this. In their image solutions group, photographic imaging (Film, chemicals, machines, etc) dramatically outsell their digital cameras. Is this right? Is film and related businesses still selling that well? I dont know how to read financial statements too well so dont trust my judgement!
The report says for 2Q FY 2013 (April-September 2012) Fujifilm Group (AKA Fujifilm Holdings Corporation) the revenue was 1,061 billion Yen (I assume the report calls this 2Q because it comes at the end of the 2Q.)
Imaging Solutions had a revenue of 142 billion Yen or 13.4% of Fujifilm Group revenue. Of the Imaging Solutions revenue, Photo Imaging was 67% (95.1 billion Yen) or 9.0% of Fujifilm Group revenue. Electronic Imaging was 33% (46.9 billion Yen) or 4.4% of Fujifilm Group revenue.
This report doesn't breakdown film sales, but they would be some (probably small) part of the 9.0% figure.
That 95.1 billion yen is film related business no? That is much larger than their camera business! I had no idea of this.

RA4 may outlast all other consumer color analog products.
Well, you can “exactly” see from the pie chart below in the page of the following link for Y2011 results:

You can see from the Y2011 pie chart that Photographic Film sales was 1% and
that will result in 21.953 billon Yen of Photographic Film sales.
So it means that the Photographic Film sales was 274 million US dollars for Y2011 (assuming exchange rate 1 USD = 80 Yen).
If you look at the pie chart for Y2000 (film 19%), Y2011 (film 1%) seems reasonable.
One should note that the Fujifilm “imaging sector” also shrunk from 54%(Y2000) to 15%(2011).
