How Fujifilm’s Cameras (including X-Pro2) and Lenses are Made!

Have you ever been curious about the camera manufacturing process and what goes on inside those production facilities? Well, today here is a great story for you.

The Verge was recently invited to Fujifilm’s Taiwa factory in Sendai and had the chance to find out what goes on inside of their production facility in Taiwan.

From The Verge:

The Taiwa plant handles final assembly on Fujifilm’s most prestigious products: the X100T, the X-T1, and the new X-Pro2 — on which I shot all the photos in this article — as well as lenses like the 35mm f/2 and the just-introduced 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6. In the case of the X-Pro2, for example, the metal body is cast in a factory elsewhere in Japan, and shipped to Taiwa to be put together with all the other components.

I’ve shot Fujifilm cameras ever since the X100, which boosted the company back into enthusiast relevance in 2011, but I didn’t really know how they were put together. The answer, it turns out, is that they’re not assembled by robots, but by actual humans with a lot of work and care.

X-Pro2 bodies wait to be plucked for finishing.
