Film cameras, along with the companies producing them, are experiencing a resurgence. Yes!Star, a Chinese company recently selected by Fujifilm to ramp up film production in China, has introduced a new 35mm point-and-shoot film camera to the market.

While Yes!Star might not be widely recognized outside China, it has been manufacturing dental and medical film for Fujifilm for some time.
