Fujifilm is a Japanese manufacturer of photographic equipment including cameras and lenses. The company was originally established to manufacture photographic and other types of film. The company started manufacturing optical glasses as well as photographic lenses during the time of the Second World War.
Fuji had the lion’s share of film sales in Japan and also wrested a sizeable proportion of the US market from Kodak. For some time Fujifilm and Kodak, the other major player in the first half of the 20th century in the photographic film industry, fought a bitter battle on and off the court.
Between the two companies, Fuji made the successful jump to digital while Kodak failed miserably. Fuji has a successful line of point and shoot and interchangeable lens series cameras. Among the modern systems the X-mount camera systems including the X-T2 and the X-T20. They also came out with a medium format system the GFX 50S.
