According to media reports, Sony “halted and evacuated” half a dozen manufacturing plants in north-eastern Japan after the country was hit by a massive earthquake and a giant tidal wave. Bloomberg reports that Panasonic is busy sizing up the damage to its own factories, while Canon’s facilities apparently managed to escape major devastation. Meanwhile, Thom Hogan points out that Nikon’s professional camera body manufacturing plant is located in the immediate vicinity of the Sendai airport, known for being struck by the tsunami that ensued after the main quake - although he adds that the factory itself was “not significantly affected”.
