The global chip shortage has affected another camera from the Sony range. This time, Sony is suspending orders for ZV-E10, a mirrorless vlogging camera released in August.
In accordance with Digital Photography Review, Sony has announced the suspension of the camera in a post on its website, noting that it will no longer sell the ZV-E10 in its online store or through any of its distributors at this time. «In the case of digital imaging products, spare parts supply is delayed due to the effects of global semiconductor shortages", Says at one point the announcement of Sony.
Unfortunately, this is not the only device that Sony has had to pause this year. In November, the company stopped selling the series' cameras A7II, A6400 and A1600, along with the microphone ECM-B1M shotgun and the camcorder PXW-Z190. Sony also put the Handycam HDR-CX680 camcorder on hold in April. THE Sony A9 also seems to have stopped or just being available in very small quantities, as it is referred to as "no longer available" in both Adorama and B&H Photo. The same goes for the six-year-old Sony A7R II, which is also reported as not available in online stores.
Like almost any other industry right now, camera companies are struggling to make enough products to meet consumer demands. In June, the Nikon stopped including the adapter AC EH-7P with cameras Z7 and Z7 II, as it does not have enough accessories to release it. THE Canon has also announced shipping delays of up to "half a year" to consumers who have ordered its new mirrorless model EOS-R3, while dispatch delays also hit Fujifilm for X-S10 and some other camera equipment earlier this year.
