Just two weeks after announcing it would no longer take orders for its a7 II series, a6400 and a6100 camera systems, Sony Japan has announced the next casualty of the ongoing chip shortage is its ZV-E10 compact camera system.
In an announcement posted to its website, Sony Japan says ‘there is a delay in procurement of parts for digital imaging products due to the global shortage of semiconductors.’ Specifically, the announcement says that as of December 3, 2021, Sony would no longer be accepting orders from dealers and customers for the ZV-E10, a vlogging-oriented camera released just five months ago.
Sony says it ‘deeply apologize[s] for any inconvenience this may cause’ and says it ‘will do [its] best to deliver as soon as possible.’
Sony Japan doesn’t specify whether it’s unable to procure parts specifically for the ZV-E10 or whether it’s prioritizing other camera models in its lineup as the chip shortage continues to cause problems for nearly all manufacturers.
