I don’t know about you, but I find factory tours fascinating, especially when so much equipment is still being assembled by hand. Sure, the individual components manufacture may be automated, but to see them all come together to create the final by hand product is a wonderful sight. It’s also interesting to see how each company differs in their approach & working environment, too.
I used to think all this stuff was 99% automated until I started seeing tours of factories like Leica and Sony. This time we get to look inside Fujifilm’s Japanese Sendai factory, thanks to the folks at Cinema5D. The Sendai factory is where they make Fujinon MK lenses, the Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm GFX and a few other cool toys.
