See how much less the Japanese camera makers are selling after the Kumamoto earthquake :(


What you see on the graph on top are the first tangible results of the Kumamoto earthquake damages. Camera shipment of Japanese companies reached a record low ever for the month of May and June (Source CIPA-PDF file here).. As you know Olympus had to delay the E-PL8 camera launch due the Sony sensor production stop. it’s also rumored that the E-M1II and Gh5 could ship much later than previously expected.  And regarding the GH5, rumors are getting stronger that the launch might NOT happen at Photokina at all!
