Fujifilm Japan Factory Tour

Pixel Village and GMax Studios were invited by Fujifilm for a tour of Japan, during which they visited Fujifilm Factory at Sendai, CP+ 2019 at Yokohama, Interviewed senior Fujifilm officials and Tested their yet to be launched camera X-T30. The video is filmed with a Fujifilm X-T3 and an X-T30. I only mention this because at the beginning of the video when they are traveling to the factory they pass a train at over 300km/hr and the image holds up well, which is impressive. Below are some points from after their arrival:

  • Fujifilm produces 70 GFX50R over an 8hr shift
  • The guests try to replace the leather on an X-H1 as quickly as an employee and fail miserably, she manages the replacement in 1m 50s.
  • There is also a look at the red badge lens assembly clean room
  • The guests then try to align a lens on their own
  • Labels are added at the end of the assembly, but during this shot, there is a blurry section of the room
  • They even got a tour of one of the clean rooms, but they couldn’t film during this tour so they discussed it when it was over
  • The people taking the tour said they saw world class stuff on their tour including robots putting the mount together
  • Fujifilm let them try cleaning a lens element during their tour
  • Fujifilm even listens to how the lens sounds during inspection
  • Fujifilm’s passion for excellence came across throughout the tour
  • At the end of the tour, Fujifilm has a feedback session that’s like a Q&A that could help them improve their quality, which the attendees compare to “Showing a light to the Sun”
