The Frontier 350 is a digital minilab available from Fujifilm, a Japanese company known for its photographic and imaging technologies. Using the Frontier 350, digital photography enthusiasts and print businesses can access a wide range of features, including a high-performance scanning system, image processing tools, and a high-quality printer that uses silver halide photographic paper and Fujifilm's proprietary laser exposure system.

The scanning section of the Frontier 350 uses a 3-line CCD -- or charge-coupled device, popular when high-quality image data is necessary -- to scan transported film. Its standard film carriers are the 135 automatic negative carrier NC135Y and the NC240Y, with optional multi-film carrier MFC10Y. Image processing is done with optimal colour reproduction, colour gradation control, hyper-sharpness and hyper-tone processing, soft focus, facial expression enhancement, monotone finishing, and red-eye correction, among other processing features. The Frontier 350's display is either a 15- or 17-inch cathode ray tube (CRT) colour display with a six-frame display capability.
The laser printer, processor, cutter and sorter are included in a single, floor-type unit. The scanning exposure system uses RGB lasers, with the G and B lasers being solid-state -- meaning that they use a solid, rather than liquid or gas, as their gain mediums. The two switchable paper magazines use FUJICOLOR silver-halide paper with widths of 8.9, 9.5, 10.2, 11.7, 12.0, 12.7, 13.0, 15.2, 16.5, 17.8, 20.3, 21.0, 21.6, and 25.4cm. The 350 uses an SU1100Y printer sorter with 11 orders of C/H/P-mixed-format prints. Printer condition set-up is done by semi-automatic calibration using an AD100 calibrator. The processor carriage is multi-line. Processing time to dry is four minutes. The processor uses the chemical system CP-48S II, which is available in cartridges from Fuji. Additionally, the CP-48HV II chemical system is also available for higher-volume users.
The Frontier 350 can produce approximately 1,300 prints in one hour using paper that is 8.9cm in width, the least wide paper the machine can print. Using the widest paper, 25.4cm, the 350 can print approximately 200 sheets in one hour. Using the Advanced Photo System, the 350 can produce 36 rolls in one hour using 8.9cm wide paper. It can print media prints using SCSI at a rate of 900 prints per hour, or using USB at a rate of 750 prints per hour.
The scanner and image processor -- or input unit -- together are 936mm in width, 815mm in depth, and stand 1,236mm in height. It weights approximately 146kg and requires an installation space of approximately 0.76 square meters. The laser printer and paper processor -- or output unit -- is 830mm in width, 1,708mm in depth, and 1,850mm in height. It weights approximately 480kg and requires an installation space of approximately 1.40 square meters.
