Sony’s production of IMX sensors has been disrupted as a result of two earthquakes on April 14th and 16th, in their Kumamoto Japan technology center. However, 1stVision has cameras in stock with these sensors!
Operations at this facility, is the primary manufacturing site for Pregius (IMX Series) image sensors used in digital cameras. Manufacturing had been suspended due to the impact of the earthquakes.
This manufacturing delay put a strain on the supply chain leaving many camera manufacturers without the ability to ship product.
Sony’s manufacturing center is now running, but may take until early fall until the factory supply chain eliminates any delays.
