Thread: Nikon & Canon

  1. #1

    Default Nikon & Canon

    Anyone knows where Nikon and Canon DSLR are made from? I know that Nikon D80/D90 are from Thailand. Are they reliable then?

    and i don't understand.. why would anyone care about where these things came from, not as if you would get one set from china, and one set from thailand. and they would be inferior from one another in one way from another...

    all in all...

    in MODERN CONTEXT... does it really matter ?

    I think it does matter a bit. Cuz the parts may be made locally. Try getting a Toyota from China.

    Not so sure about Nikon. I've got a powershot from Malaysia. The DSLRs are from Japan. For cost savings, new releases normally are made in Japan. When the production is stabilized, they might move the production line to other country.

    guess its the country recognition ... jap products were known to be good quality...their race dedication to doing something right had ensure that their product made has been top notch.
    of course there were cases of inferior prod but the probability is lower.

    Read somewhere jap cars has the fewest fault compared to the likes of other made.

    if its made in japan, you feel that the made quality wont be that bad.


    coming back to china .... i still remember that there was a documentary bout haier...before they reform, their workers heck care the product quality ... if its spoils it spoils...that said much bout the commitment of the worker to making the products...


    having said that ... there are no statistic that Jap camera prod are better... maybe can start 1 ... haha...

    Thailand is fine. But if it is China, you should really be worried. Not sure what kind of QC or materials they have in there...
