Inside Imaging has been told that Canon, Nikon and Sony have already pulled back support for Black Friday promotions ‘as there will be a shortage of stock due to fire in (the) Japan factory,’ according to the source.

The impact of the AKM fire – along with supply disruptions due to Covid, and big hikes in air and sea freight charges – is likely to see increased prices for cameras, as well as other high-end, AV-oriented consumer electronics such as TVs and sound bars – through 2021.

2020 is really quite a year.
