Halt in production of the Fujifilm FinePix X100 - Production of the Fujifilm FinePix X100 is temporarily halted following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Fujifilm's Taiwa-Cho factory, 20 miles from Sendai city, has been affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Northern Japan. None of the workers at the Taiwa-Cho factory are reported to be injured but a temporarily halt in production of the FinePix X100 has occurred due to the factory building getting damaged. As a result, Fujifilm say they are "expecting a delay to market" for the X100.
In a statement Fujifilm said: "Fujifilm is currently considering all possible options to minimise the delay and the disappointment for the many consumers who have given the X100 such an incredible reception."
The rest of Fujifilm’s range has been unaffected, due to manufacturing being based outside the region.
Fujifilm extend their thoughts and condolences to everyone affected by these terrible events in Japan.
