In addition to posting financial results, Nikon has posted another Thailand flood notice:
Extraordinary Losses Due to the Flooding in Thailand
In the Consolidated Financial Results for the Third Quarter ended December 31, 2011, Nikon Corporation ("Nikon") has recognized extraordinary losses as described in the following.
1. Extraordinary loss
The flooding happened in October, 2011 in Thailand caused water damage to Nikon (Thailand) Co., Ltd., a consolidated manufacturing subsidiary of Nikon in the Rojana Industrial Park in Ayutthaya Province located in Central Thailand. Nikon has recognized losses of ¥10,904 million on fixed assets and inventories suffered damages from the flooding as extraordinary loss.
Nikon also has recognized insurance payment of ¥500 million received under the property damage insurance policies for a part of losses relating to the inventories suffered from the flooding as extraordinary gain. Nikon will recognize insurance payments pending to be received as extraordinary gain as soon as the amounts are fixed.
2. Outlook
Nikon currently expects that the amounts of the additional losses due to the flooding such as salary paid during suspension of the operation etc. will not have a significant impact on Nikon’s consolidated financial performance for the fiscal year ending March, 2012.
Nikon also expects that the losses relating to the fixed assets and inventories will be compensated by additional insurance payment which is currently pending.
Based on the assumptions above, Nikon announces the consolidated results forecast of fiscal year ending March 31, 2012 in Consolidated Financial Results of the Third Quarter ended December 31, 2011 that has been announced today.

From Gitzo:
Gitzo introduces the new Systematic tripod range.
Systematic is Gitzo’s top of the range tripod family, the choice of exacting professional photographers who use long lenses and heavy cameras. Not only are Systematic Gitzo’s strongest and most stable tripods, they’re also modular, with a top casting element that opens and closes to allow each tripod to be configured with a flat disk, geared or sliding centre column, video half-ball adaptor, levelling unit or other specialised centre component.
Now, Systematic has been refined, with significant improvements across strength, stability and rigidity; safety and security; set-up speed, ease of use and ergonomics. New construction and bonding techniques have almost doubled maximum payloads by distributing weight more efficiently to the 6X carbon fibre legs, which also feature the G-Lock system for greater power and ease of leg section locking.
In addition, design details on the distinctive new triangular top casting make changing centre components even faster and safer.
The Systematic range has been extended to cover Gitzo Series 2 in order to offer the advantages of mechanical strength and build quality at a more portable size and b. Each Systematic Series has 3-section, standard 4-section and long 4-section tripods, with Series 3 and 5 also offering an extra-long 4-section model and Series 5 featuring the iconic giant 6-section tripod alongside an ultra-compact 6 section model.
Systematic - the pinnacle of Gitzo technology, craftsmanship and quality.

From Lowepro:
Capture life’s events… in style
Lowepro unveils a discreet and modern messenger series for enthusiast photographers with ILC kits: the Event Messenger.
Event Messenger Series - (Petaluma, CA, March 1, 2012)
Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronic devices, introduces the Event Messenger series. Three models are built to carry and protect an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) kit, plus a laptop or tablet in the larger two.
"Our Event Messenger offers the enthusiast photographer a discreet, modern bag with quick and quiet access in an innovative design," said Tim Grimmer, Lowepro director of marketing and product management.
The Event Messenger's Grab-and-Go design features a wide-access main compartment. A Dual-Mode Flap design allows the enthusiast to quickly switch from maximum security mode to quiet working mode by unfolding or folding the fasteners under the flap. The quiet working mode is ideal for capturing shots during an event where discretion is ideal.
Additional features include: padded laptop/tablet compartment (in the 250 and 150, respectively); comfortable shoulder strap with non-slip patch; stretch side pockets; and a grab handle for an extra carrying option.
The series is available in Mica in three sizes: the 250 (fits up to a Pro DSLR without grip, extra lenses, accessories and a 13" laptop), 150 (fits a DSLR, extra lenses, accessories and a tablet) and 100 (fits a compact DSLR or compact system camera, extra lenses and accessories).
