Earthquake

Nikon has shut down its Sendai plant in the earthquake hit part of the country. Nikon's Sendai plant is where cameras including the D3S, D3X, D700 and F6 are made.

'We are suspending operations there and continuing to evaluate further details of the damage,' Nikon said in a statement.

'We are unable to announce how soon the operations will resume due to the regional interruption of life-lines…'

Canon has similarly shut down a factory in the troubled region.

Nikon has contributed 100 million yen to relief efforts and Canon, a much bigger company, has given 300 million yen.
