Fujifilm Celebrates 75 Years of Motion Picture Film Manufacture

For 75 years, Fujifilm has been a technological innovator, with groundbreaking contributions and advancements in photo finishing, graphics, life sciences, manufacturing, retail and entertainment. The company spends more than US$5million per day in research and development. “Fujifilm’s contributions and accomplishments in these markets have left a positive effect on the world in terms of health, safety and mind,” says Marc Van Agten, General Manager Recording Media/Motion Picture Film.

This commitment to innovation has enhanced many industries, but it has also improved our daily lives. Fujifilm’s breakthroughs have included the world’s first one-time use camera, the first true handheld digital camera and Fujifilm Computed Radiography (FCR), the original digitized X-ray system, which reduces patient exposure to radiation without deteriorating image quality. Fujifilm has also developed FCR Digital Mammography, a computerized detection system that improves image quality to facilitate the early detection of breast cancer. On the photofinishing front, the company introduced Image Intelligence, a professional finishing system that automatically corrects common flaws to produce an image very close to that seen by the human eye.
