might be tacky to be talking about camera production considering the circumstances but,
"Canon says camera production has not been affected by the Japanese earthquake though press reports suggest that its factories were damaged in the disaster.
Hirotomo Fujimori, a Tokyo-based spokesman for Canon based in Tokyo, told news agency Bloomberg that the world's biggest camera manufacturer 'didn't suffer damage to plants that would halt output'...."

best wishes to all of those affected!
thank you that is what I was asking about, it is important enough for Mr Hirotomo Fujimori to make a statement. I don't think my question was insensitive on this forum.
I hope life loss is limited, the people of Japan are great!
On a side note I do hope the whaling fleet was destroyed!
