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.
