Hop Aboard This Fujifilm Factory Tour to See How Cameras and Lenses Are Made

Get an eye-opening look at the Fujifilm factory in this new video.

One could say watching how things get made in the factory is a popular fascination considering the television show "How It's Made" is on its 31st season. I think I speak for many photographers when I say that it would be a dream come true to get a behind-the-scenes look at an operation like this. Seeing the extreme detail and fact-paced efficiency that these dedicated workers have with my own eyes would be a treat. And let's be real, who wouldn't want to suit up into one of those whiter-than-white clean suits and walk through a sanitation room like in the movies.

Speaking of that efficiency, in this Fujifilm factory tour video from Pixel Viilage it's revealed that they kick out 70 GFX 50R in an 8-hour shift. That's an unbelievable pace. We also see how lens optics are calibrated as well as how units are pieced together and tested before shipping out to the hands of customers.

If you want to see more from the Fujifilm factory, check out this other video that looks at how the previous-generation Fujifilm X-T2 cameras and MK18-55mm T2.9 lenses are made.

I really enjoy this tour, thank you. I purchased my first FuJifilm camera and bought two lens. I sold all my Nikon gear. Nikon a great company but the value Nikon offers for their price points eased me out. I bought the X H1 and 2.8 40-140 and a kit lens. My learning curve is slow, not getting the sharpness I want. Pretty sure it’s me not the gear. If anyone can direct me to some simple “how to set your Fujifilm gear” videos , I would appreciate. Notable post . NOTE: I have my gear now less than a month
