The plant that Nikon has been using to make its entry-level DSLRs was hit by some pretty bad flooding, causing production to shut down completely. Today it was revealed that the damage may be worse than expected, as the plant has now been declared unsalvageable.
Sony’s DSLR plant has also been put under the “no prospect of recovery” category. Unlike Nikon, which only made some of their cameras in Thailand, Sony produced every single camera model in Thai plants which have been completely destroyed. Amazon has pulled a few models of Sony cameras due to manufacturing concerns.
Canon has also lost some production, as one of the factories related to printers has been completely submerged. Things are looking dire all around.
