Sony already warns about supply shortage for some camera models

Today Sony Japan issued a press release warning about supply shortages for some camera models (a6100). They even completely suspended some video and action models. This is most likely related to the devastating three-day fire at a Japanese high-end IC components factory I reported two days ago. Here is the translated press release:

Notice and apology for supply of digital imaging products

Thank you for your continued patronage of Sony products.

In the digital imaging category (Cyber-shot, α, Handycam, Action cam), it is expected that some models will not be able to supply enough to meet the demand due to the problem of parts supply, so it will take a while until the product is delivered. It may take some time.

Products that take time to deliver:

  • Digital SLR cameras: α6100 series

In addition, for certain models with tight supply, we have decided to suspend the acceptance of orders from distributors to us and the acceptance of orders from customers at Sony stores after December 3, 2020. It was. Regarding the resumption of order acceptance, we will consider while observing the status of parts supply and will inform you separately on the product information page.

Products subject to order suspension:

  • Digital video camera: FDR-AX45, HDR-CX680
  • Action cam: FDR-X3000 / X3000R, HDR-AS300 / AS300R
  • Digital still camera: DSC-RX0M2

We deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers. (source: Sony)
