Smile! Your prints have come - so get creative at world's first Fujifilm interactive studio
The electronics market in Causeway Bay's Windsor House was filled with camera flashes and the clink of champagne flutes when Fujifilm execs and photo-savvy celebs came together to celebrate the opening of the world's first Fujifilm studio.
Actress and photography enthusiast Gaile Lai Kei-yi was on hand on to wax rhapsodic about Fujifilm's interactive facility, and was given a new camera for her troubles. Also on hand was professional photographer and artist Stanley Wong, better known as anothermountainman.
Stanley Sun, Fujifilm's managing director, explained the reason for the studio opening and emphasised its added-value offering in a market already saturated with camera stores. 'In Hong Kong, if you want to buy a camera and you want to test prints, there are not many places where you can do that. We have one of the few dry mini-labs in Hong Kong, and a commercial ink jet printer, so you can actually test all of our cameras and print your pictures right away.'
The other point of pride for Fujifilm is the professionalism and superior after-sales service of the staff; even after you buy your camera you can still come in and the staff will help you develop prints, create albums, print on large canvases and even create collages.
Now there's an offer you don't get every day in Hong Kong. Smile please!
