The full Fujifilm earnings report is finally out. And there are good news for X-series as well as GFX lovers. Here some excerpts.
“The business of electronic imaging achieved a sales growth due to positive sales of the X Series of mirrorless digital cameras such as FUJIFILM X-T2 and FUJIFILM X-T20 as well as their interchangeable lenses, and strong sales of the FUJIFILM GFX 50S, a medium-format mirrorless digital camera equipped with a large sized sensor, released in February.”
The sales of the Imaging Solutions segment decreased, due to the negative effect of the appreciation of the Japanese yen in the foreign exchange market However its income grew thanks to the sales expansion of instant photo systems and digital cameras which are high-end models as well as improved profitability in various business categories.
