Fujifilm’s earnings report for the fiscal year ending in March has been published and contains some interesting information on the company’s line of consumer imaging products. Sales figures of both X-Series cameras and lenses and the GFX medium format system have increased, according to the report.

‘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.’

Overall, the sales of the company’s Imaging Solutions division decreased 3.2% from 352.9 billion Yen to 341.8 billion Yen due to the negative effect of the appreciation of the Japanese Yen in the foreign exchange market. However, operating income went up by 15% from 32 to 36.8 billion Yen, thanks to the sales expansion of digital cameras mentioned above, an increase in sales of high-end instant photo systems and improved profitability in various business categories.

The company is projecting a 2.4% increase in revenue over the next fiscal year for the Imaging Systems business, from 341 billion to 350 billion Yen, with operating income up nearly 17%.
