PMA 2018 Report
Fujifilm USA, Inc. is introducing new Fujichrome Velvia 50 for Professionals (RVP 50), a high color saturation, high contrast transparency film at the PMA 2007 Annual Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, NV. At the beginning of 2005 Fujifilm announced the discontinuation of previous Fujichrome Velvia for Professionals (RVP) due to difficulties in procuring some of the key raw materials used to produce the product. However, since the last stocks were sold earlier last year, the company received many requests from photographers worldwide to restart manufacturing, as they had used Velvia for many years and consider it unmatched in terms of quality and character.
Fujifilm USA, Inc., announced the immediate release of the CP-49LR Frontier Chemical Cartridge. The CP-49LR is developed for use on medium-to-high throughput Frontier systems and specifically designed to reduce reduces the volume of packaging materials for disposal. Additionally, because of the 11% reduction of replenishment rate for Crystal Archive Type II Paper, less chemical waste handling and disposal is necessary. Each CP-49LR PC cartridge will process 125 m² (1,345.5 ft²) Fujicolor Crystal Archive Type II Paper, a significant increase compared to the current CP-49E cartridge capacity. This increase in capacity results in fewer cartridge changes.
