Since Fujifilm's founding in 1934 as a photographic film manufacturer, we have expanded to become an innovative leader in a variety of business fields.
The history of Fujifilm starts in the late 30's and 40's where the company specialized in Motion Picture products, X-Ray films, colour reversal films and still cameras. In the 50's and 60's, Fujifilm quickly began to expand and diversify its range of products. In 1986, Fujifilm manufactured the world's first single-use recyclable camera, known as Quicksnap. Then two years later, Fujifilm became the first manufacturer to launch a Digital Camera on the market.
Almost 5 years ago, Fujifilm announced the X100, our first camera with a large, APS-C sensor aimed at professionals and advanced amateurs – and the first Fujifilm X camera. The Fujifilm X brand has continued to expand with interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras, featuring the revolutionary X-Trans sensor, and a robust line-up of highly-acclaimed Fujinon X-mount lenses that continues to grow.
Another of Fujifilm’s successes is the instax instant camera that has sparked the revival of instant, physical pictures for a generation who grew up in the digital age. Our line-up includes mini and wide-film instax cameras as well as the instax Share wireless smartphone printer.
Today, Fujifilm is one of the world's largest photographic and imaging companies. We are also innovating in medicine, highly functional materials, and many other high-tech areas.
