Nikon D800 announced

Nikon will produce 30,000 units per month of its newly announced Nikon D800 in order to meet demand, according to a report.

A story on the Malaysian National News Agency, Bernama, claims that the manufacturer will produce the 30,000 Nikon D800 units at its Sendai factory in Japan.

The report also claims that Nikon hopes to produce 5,000 Nikon D4 units every month.

The report stems from several Asian journalists who visited the Sendai factory, where Nikon President Jiro Saito told them the company had spent US$100 million repairing the factory after the devastating earthquake of March last year.

Nikon’s Sendai factory employees around 1,600 workers and boasts the ability of producing one camera per minute during the plant’s daytime shift.

According to the report, a Nikon D800 can be produced in around four hours, while the D4 takes five.
