    Amateur Photographer reported that camera production in Japan fell by more than 30% in April with the biggest drop coming in the interchangeable lens sector.

    The impact might not be as great as these numbers suggest since a lot of Japanese branded cameras are made outside Japan, though the supply of key parts from Japan was presumably, badly affected.
