I was ordering a new canon SLR from warehouse express yesterday. The salesman was telling me that they are expecting the price of cameras and equipment to increase due to the problems thats going on in Japan. Something i hadnt really thought about but a lot of gear will be made over there

Price rises are happening all around the camera world and its not all just due to supply shortages, its also due the the strength of the Yen and the weakness of the Doller.
