Sony and Nikon DSLRs Face Delays in Wake of Thailand Floods

October 22nd, 2011

Delays!.jpgThe 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.
