Fujifilm Finepix 100

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.

Are you sure it has anything to do with an earthquake?

MARCH 08: from DPreview:


Quote: Fujifilm Japan has announced a shortage of its FinePix X100 large-sensor compact camera and accessories because of higher than expected demand. The company says it is attempting to boost production to meet demand. The latest word from Fujifilm USA is that cameras will be available in the US during the last week of March or first week of April.
