Fujifilm Holdings said on Wednesday it plans to shift its remaining digital camera production to China and cut an unspecified number of jobs as it restructures its struggling camera operations.

Fujifilm also said it would outsource production of charge coupled devices (CCDs), which are image-capturing chips used in digital cameras, to Toshiba, dissolve a subsidiary and sell land and buildings to electronics parts maker Murata Manufacturing Co.

Man, I hate to see Fuji do this, because their cameras are outstanding.  I own a FujiFilm S9100 and F20.  Love those cameras.  Sure, they don't have IS, but Fuji added it to the F50 and S8000... No real interest to get them since what I have works fine for me.

Well, I am a previous Fuji customer, I have 4 of their cameras, but now it looks like they will be the last.  The chinese products are so inferior and mostly junk, no quality control... tsk tsk tsk... too bad...

I'd have to agree with you... But the SuperCCD is unmatched by anyone.  Will have to wait and read some reviews.  Perhaps if it goes bad enough for Fuji, they will sell the technology to Nikon so the Fuji SuperCCD won't die.  Still, would hate to see Fuji drop off the face of the world.  If they did one thing right, it was cameras.
