Fujifilm has reported a 76% year-on-year surge in operating income from its image business in its newly released Q3 financial report, thanks to strong demand for its Instax cameras and film.
The company also reported a 15.6% rise in revenue at 297.7 billion yen over the same period, which was driven by strong sales in Europe and the United States for its Instax line of instant cameras and film.
In the electronic imaging business, revenue increased on strong sales of mirrorless digital camera X Series, including the FUJIFILM X-E3 which was launched in September 2017, the FUJIFILM X-T20 and FUJIFILM X100F, which were launched in February 2017, and the FUJIFILM GFX 50S, a medium format mirrorless digital camera equipped with a large sized sensor, as well as their accompanying interchangeable lenses.
Professional photographers and camera enthusiasts have given high praise to our proprietary technology, which produces impressive depictions reproducing brilliant colors that remain vivid in people’s memories, and the extensive line-up of 31 lenses. In the optical device business, sales increased, reflecting the strong performance of various industrial-use lenses such as thos e for vehicle cameras and projectors.
The MK lens series was also launched, offering a new series of ci nema camera lenses designed for the expanding market of online and related types of video recording.
