Canon to delay new digital camera plant


TOKYO, Dec 17, 2008 (Reuters via COMTEX) -- Canon Inc said on Wednesday it
would delay the construction and start-up of a 17.4 billion yen ($196 million)
digital camera plant in Japan due to sluggish demand.

Canon, the world's largest digital camera maker, said in July it would start
building a new digital camera plant in Nagasaki, western Japan, in January 2009,
with production slated to start next December of that year. (Reporting by
