Introducing FUJIFILM’s expansive, varied technologies to enable expansion into a wide range of business fields.


Photographs are a mix of technologies

Best-in-world class technical capabilities cultivated through research and development of silver halide photographs

1. Take a photograph with camera → 2. Record on film → 3. Develop → 4. Print

The process for completion of a single photograph hinges of a wide range of advanced, Proprietary Technical Capabilities.

We have cultivated best-in-world class technical capabilities and competitive advantages through our research and development of silver halide photographs.

1. Photographing - Cameras

We design and manufacture high-quality lenses, hardware, and systems

In addition to starting lens development soon after our establishment, FUJIFILM has built unique strengths in camera hardware and system design.

2. Recording - Photographic Film (Sensors)

Numerous layers of functional matters are simultaneously coated onto a film base with uniform thickness

The surface of photographic film is coated with layers of material that each have various functionalities. FUJIFILM has the technology to produce thin films of the micrometer level, with uniform structure and no light distortion. Furthermore, we can design and maintain functional matters at the nano level, arranging microscopic grain uniformly while also coating this base with many layers simultaneously, rapidly, and uniformly.

3. Developing - Photo Developer, Mini-lab

Advanced system design for precise control from developing through printing

FUJIFILM has built high level of system design technology in order to construct printing systems for photo development, including mini-labs and more.

4. Printing - Photos and Albums

Precisely control chemical reactions in functional matter coatings

Precise control of chemical reactions in the varied functional matter coatings on photographic film and colored paper allow achieving high color replicability and image retention.

At FUJIFILM, we provide a wide range of products and services through combinations of 12 core technologies at the heart of our sustained competitive advantage, as well as the fundamental technologies that support our business through photography.

Fundamental Technologies

A general term for technical fields that form the base of our business.
These indicate the technical capabilities to address customers’ requirements.

Core Technologies

Technologies that form the core for the creation of sustained competitive advantage, built atop fundamental technologies.
Technologies that have the potential to form the core of “co-creation” of new value.
