Inside the Fujifilm Factory with Lok: Assemblling the Fujifilm GFX100 and the Discontinued Fujifilm X-H1

Lok brings you inside the Fujifilm factory in Sendai, Japan.

The first thing he shows, is part of the assembly of the Fujifilm GFX100. Lok is surprised to see that so much of the assembly is done by hand.

You also see how meticulously every smallest dust particle is removed from the sensor and the lenses.

Lok then tries to apply the rubber texture to a Fujifilm X-H1, but what looks easy in skilled hands, turns out to much more difficult to do if you are not trained for it.

And if you wonder, why a Fujifilm X-H1, well, I believe the tour dates back to May/June 2019, when we already shared a couple of similar Fujifilm Sendai factory tour videos.

At that time, Fujifilm only stopped selling Fujifilm X-H1 body only, but they where still producing it, since it had a big revival pushed by the Fujifilm X-H1 + vertical grip combo deals.

Here on FujiRumors, the Fujifilm X-H1 even beat the Fujifilm X-T3 in terms of overall 2019 sales, thanks to this deal.

The production of Fujifilm X-H1 probably only ended in the second half of 2019.

Fujifilm Factory Visit: Manufacturing Fujinon XF Lenses and Fujifilm X/GFX Cameras

Pixel Village visited the Fujifilm factory in Japan. Above you can see the video, which I will let you start at minute 2:30 (the moment they enter the factory). Here are some info we get from the video:

  • 70 Fujifilm GFX 50R are assembled in an 8 hour shift
  • the leather fixing on the Fujifilm X-H1 took the Japanese worker 1 minute and 50 seconds
  • you see the red badge XF lens assembly line and manual lens elements alignment
  • some stuff was not permitted to be filmed, such as robots putting lens mounts together
  • they were surprised how much technology, work and passion is behind something that we take for granted
  • at the end Fujifilm asked in a feedback session what they could improve in their quality standards, but it would be like if the sun would ask how to make light

Down below you can see some screenshots from the video.
