Nikon Notice on Northern Japan Earthquake
Nikon has posted an official comment on the state of their operations in Japan. As many Nikonians are aware, the town of Sendai closest to the earthquake is the home of Nikon's professional camera manufacturing factory, outputting models such as the D3 and the D700. For now, operations are shut down, and unfortunately some employees are reported to have been injured. Nikon has also committed 100M Yen (approx. 122MM USD) to the Japanese Red Cross Society in support of relief efforts in the country.
