Fujifilm has announced they have found fraudolent Fujifilm branded color negativ film on the Japanese market.
It has been found that “a 35mm film non-genuine product illegally using FUJIFILM logo” (see attached photo) packed with movie film (* 1) has been brought to a development handling shop in Japan . These are the fraudulent use of our logo, not the products we offer.
Please note that these products are packed with movie film inside the used 35mm patrone, and can not be developed with the normal color negative film development process (CN-16, C-41). If the photo shop develops, it may contaminate the developer and it may be necessary to change the solution and to clean the rack of the developing machine, which may lead to development failure of other customers’ films. In order to avoid these risks, the shop will refuse the development of non-genuine products.
We are not responsible for any problems caused by such non-regular films. In addition, we have already implemented this warning notice to developing film handling shops and processing facilities for general purpose films.
We look forward to your continued patronage of our products.
Example of “35mm film non-genuine product illegally using FUJIFILM logo” packed with movie film
Besides 250D in the attached photo, there may be different types such as 64D, 250T and 500T.
In this example, there is a display of “shooting” which means “movie” in Chinese. There is no description of “image” on our regular 35mm patrone type.
* 1 The Company’s cinematographic film has been shipped in March 2013. Even in the film processing film processing office, we do not accept the development of “35mm film non-genuine products illegally using FUJIFILM logo” .
