Finding the Manufacturing Date of Your Fuji

If you have the serial number, you can roughly determine the date by:

  • taking the first digit which represents the year and add 2010* (1=2011, 2=2012, etc)
  • and the second digit which represents the quarter (1=January to March, 2=April to June, etc)

*I don’t know what they will do when it gets to 2020 – first two digits and add 2010?

If you have a JPEG you can upload:

  • upload it to http://regex.info/exif.cgi
  • scroll down to MakerNotes
  • Next to Internal serial number, carefully look for the date between the codes. It will be in YYYY:MM:DD format.

If you have a JPEG and prefer to use a local program:

  • you can use EXIFTool or EXIFToolGUI for easier use.
  • In EXIFToolGUI, select your file
  • click the Maker tab
  • look for Internal serial number
  • and widen the panel to look between the codes. The date will be in YYYY:MM:DD format.
